from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,
He has been one of the team’s top performers this season, and yet gave up three goals on five shots in Monday’s 6-1 loss to the Dallas Stars. Magnus Hellberg finished the game. Coach Derek Lalonde pointed out the Red Wings statistics showed Dallas with only two scoring chances in the first period and yet Dallas had three goals against Husso. It was not all goaltending. The Red Wings overall play was off.
But Husso has given up 14 goals in the last 69 shots he has faced. That’s a .782 save percentage.
The obvious question is whether the injury is flaring up.
“I think there’s a little alluding that this is injury-based,” Detroit coach Derek Lalonde said. “I’d be careful of that. He’s healthy. We would never put him in a situation. His game is just not sharp. We’ve seen him when he looks sharp. And unfortunately, it’s just this last week, it was a tough go for him.”
