The SportsXchange

Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard left Monday's game against the visiting St. Louis Blues due to a lower-body injury.

Howard left the game and was replaced by Petr Mrazek midway through the second period with the Red Wings trailing the Blues 3-1. Howard made 22 saves.

Last month, Howard was sidelined three weeks due to a sprained medial collateral ligament.

Entering play Monday, Howard was 9-11-8 this season with a 2.58 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage.

Howard is one of three goalies on Team USA's roster for the Olympics in Sochi, Russia, next month. The others are the Los Angeles Kings' Jonathan Quick and the Buffalo Sabres' Ryan Miller.
