Update 3:34 PM: The Detroit News says that Howard has back spasms, which occured in practice today and that Osgood is starting tonight. Perfect news for a Thursday afternoon. Anyone got a bottle of Whiskey?
Per the Wings Twitter page (via A2Y):
@DetroitRedWings The Red Wings have recalled goaltender Joey MacDonald from Grand Rapids.
To which I have to say, whhhhhhaaaattt? Has to be some sort of injury or serious sickness, because to do this they had to put Draper on long-term IR and Raffy on short-term IR as well.
Don't be hurt Howard, please for the love of Willa Ford don't be hurt.
