from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
The Red Wings have to deal with yet another key injury here in the short term.
Coach Jeff Blashill said after Monday’s practice goaltender Jonathan Bernier will be out until the All-Star break/bye week with an injury that Blashill did not disclose.
The Wings’ begin their break Jan. 23 and don’t play again until Jan. 31 at New York. The Wings have five games before the break.
Jimmy Howard and Calvin Pickard will handle the goaltending in the meantime...
“I know I can do it, the hard work will pay off,” said Howard of his current mindset. “Just don’t overanalyze things, quit thinking out there and use my hockey instincts.”...
“Confidence plays a big part of it, for any player,” Howard said. “For scorers not putting the puck in the back of the net, it might be gripping the stick a bit harder. For me, it’s just not thinking and playing one puck out there.
“Don’t think, just play. When the game is going on, basically you’re trying to be three places at once. Just play the one puck.”
