Wings G Howard out with groin injury

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard will miss Saturday night's completion of a home-and-home series with the Maple Leafs due to a groin injury.

The Detroit Free Press reported that Howard was placed on goaltender-specific 48-hour injured reserve and is listed by the Wings as day-to-day.

To fill the roster spot, Petr Mrazek was recalled from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League.

Jonas Gustavsson, Howard's normal backup, will make the start at Joe Louis Arena against Toronto.
