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:

The Red Wings have recalled Ty Conklin on emergency basis from the Grand Rapids Griffins. He must first pass through re-entry waivers by noon Wednesday. If Conklin clears, he will join the team in New York and start the game.

If Conklin is claimed (the team would be responsible for only half the remaining portion of his salary, which is basically nothing at this point of the season), then Jordan Pearce will make his first NHL start.

So basically if some team wants to, they can make it so that Detroit will go from having an all-star goaltender to an ECHL one.  

If I'm Chicago...sh*t. 

Pop open the Jameson, because this isn't getting prettier any day soon.
