DETROIT -- Jimmy Howard who?
No, nobody has forgotten about the Red Wings All-Star goaltender, the man with a 32-11-1 record, 2.03 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.
But Joey MacDonald has certainly been there to save the day -- and the last four games -- for the Wings while Howard recovers from a broken right index finger.

In a time span of roughly 2 minutes when I was browsing for, erm... blogging content, the Red Wings scored two goals (one a much needed slump buster by Henrik Zetterberg). After that, the Wings were on cruise control as they won their NHL record 21st straight game at home. Check the highlights below for more on tonight's historic win.
As spiffy as Joey MacDonald...
Henrik Zetterberg has used humor and he's used patience, but to finally see the points pile up next to his name, he admits, is a relief.
