With Dominik Hasek (John B.) taking a good part of the load over the past couple weeks, the Red Wings wanted to give him a rest. So, they called up Jimmy Howard (non-pool) from the minors and let Dom sit in the press box to watch the second half of home & home between his Wings and the Dallas Stars.
With the Red Wings clinching their playoff spot last night (and reaching the 100-point plateau, AGAIN!), the number of starts for Hasek may be few and far between heading into the playoffs. Which begs the question, when the playoff pool goes live, which one should be available for your team, since there is only going to be one box for goalies in each conference.
