Howard leaves ice early, but Babcock said it was planned

DETROIT — Goalie Jimmy Howard also left the ice early, but Wings coach Mike Babcock said that was planned.

“Anytime it’s real humid, and we’ve done this a lot in the past, before we’d have a minor league goalie available, but that team made the playoffs, so what we did was we skated him and gave him the boot,” Babcock said.

Howard will start Game 6 tonight according to Babcock and general manager Ken Holland.
