Tomorrow will mark the 14th day since James "Tiberius" Howard broke a finger on his right hand.Surprisingly, it hasn't been a horrible two weeks as some might have believed.  Since Howard's injury, the Detroit Red Wings have posted an impressive 5-1-1 record (two of those wins coming in the shootout).  Ty Conklin was leaned on, but quickly faltered and it was Joey MacDonald who came to the rescue.  In the five games that he has started, Joey Mac has allowed an average of 1.8 goals against and boasted an impressive 0.924 save percentage.But Howard will come back...and it might be sooner than you think.Make the jump to find out when.

It's time for him to go." --Mike...
