0 out of 20 points earned. 18 left.We learned yesterday the Jimmy Howard reaggravated his groin, and with Joey Mac already out with back spasms that left Detroit with one option. Recall Ty Conklin. He's been playing well and building confidence since being sent to GR back in February, but the issue is he will have to clear re-entry waivers. Who would want a guy that went 3-5 with a 3.40 GAA and .878 SV%? Well, a team that would like to kick Detroit while they are down. Chicago? San Jose? the Islanders?If by noon today another NHL team plucks the Conks of the wire you will see the NHL debut of Jordan Pearce, who has z...

Whoever mocked the injury gods, please start apologizing immediately. This is getting ridiculous.
Goaltender Jimmy Howard, who missed three games this month with a strained groin, has suffered a relapse.
Not only that, but there's a chance that Conklin will be picked up through waivers too if some team wants to screw us. What does that leave? Here's Khan to explain...

from of Puck Daddy, I spoke to Datsyuk last week about the upcoming playoffs, NHL rules changes, Alex Ovechkin and Alex Radulov, and other League topics. But as you’ll read, our conversations went in many other interesting places, including:
• His early hockey years, including wearing figure skates and a locker room fight.
• The people with whom he’d most like to have dinner...
Conklin cleared waivers today and is scheduled to start against the Rangers at MSG.
Jordan Pearce will be the backup even though Jimmy Howard felt he could fill that position tonight. Howard also mentioned he’d like to start on Saturday.
No change in Johan Franzen, did not skate but received off-ice treatment.
Lidstrom did more skating at the optional practice today, so far...
