Andrei Vasilevskiy: Vasilevskiy gets No. 1 role with Bishop out


Andrei Vasilevskiy made 22 saves in relief of Ben Bishop as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 Tuesday night in a game where both starting goalies left due to injuries.

It's uncertain how long Howard will be sidelined, but his reaction from the sequence hints that it could be lengthy.

It is expected Petr Mrazek will make a majority of the starts while Howard is out.

Losing Howard to any length of ice would be a huge loss, as Howard has arguably been the Red Wings' most valuable player this season.

"Nearly a million consumers have left their contact information to hold their place in line", Counihan said in a statement. The Obama administration has set a goal of signing up 13.8 million people for 2017, a modest increase.

The Red Wings officially recalled goalie Jared Coreau from Grand Rapids Wednesday to replace Jimmy Howard.

Coreau made his National Hockey League debut with the Wings December 3 at Pittsburgh.

After finishing as the runner-up in the Vezina Trophy voting last season, the prolific net-minder has stumbled through the first third of this season, posting a 9-10-2 record between the pipes. Bishop left Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings with the injury after he made a save in which he stretched out almost all of 6-7 frame. He enjoyed his best AHL season in 2015-16, winning a career-best 29 games with a 2.43 goals-against average, 0.922 save percentage and six shutouts in 47 games.
