DETROIT — There appears to be no end in sight for the rash of injuries the Wings have suffered of late.
Jimmy Howard will more than likely miss Wednesday’s game against the New York Rangers with a groin injury. He had just returned to the lineup after missing three games with a groin injury. And that on top of missing eight games with a fractured index finger.
Wings general manager Ken Holland said the injury “is nothing serious” and that Howard is day-to-day.
Howard is just 1-4-2 since coming back from the finger injury.
The Wings recalled Ty Conklin from Grand Rapids on an emergency basis. Conklin will have to clear re-entry waivers to join the team. If he does he’ll meet the team in New York on Wednesday.
