The Malik Report

I guess I have to report this, via the AP...
Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard left the game against the St. Louis Blues midway through the second period with what the team called a lower-body injury.
Howard, who is one of the U.S. Olympic team goalies, was replaced by Petr Mrazek after making 22 saves. Detroit was trailing 3-1.
Howard is 9-11-8 with a 2.58 goals-against average. He stopped all three shots he faced in the tiebreaker to lift Detroit to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.
Because Mickey Redmond suggested that he was ill, not suffering from a tweaked groin or hip flexor, all of Twitter and even Roberto Luongo have been making "poopy" jokes over the last 30 minutes. At this point I am HOPING that Howard's ill and not injured.
