Wings goalie Jimmy Howard leaves game against Predators in 1st period with upper-body injury
Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard left Tuesday night's game against the Nashville Predators with an upper-body injury at 11:22 of the first period.
The team said that he would not return to the game.
Howard allowed two goals against Nashville, and he left less than a minute after Nashville's second goal.
He skated toward the Red Wings bench following a shot at the other end of the ice, and he was replaced by backup Jonas Gustavsson.
