Detroit Red Wings Roster Report 2-23-12

–G Jimmy Howard made 27 saves and kept his team in the game with some key stops. He returned after missing eight games with a broken right index finger Feb. 2. The workhorse Howard figures to see a lot of action the rest of the season as he attempts to get back into a groove for the playoffs.

–RW Dan Cleary returned after missing five games with a sore knee, which needed to be drained twice and required two cortisone shots. Cleary struggled, with one shot on goal and no points in 14:48. It will take him a few games to get comfortable.

–C Valtteri Filppula, moved to center in place of the injured Pavel Datsyuk, scored the only goal for the Wings, on the power play, at 2:22 of the first period. It was his 17th goal, two short of his career high set in 2007-08. Filppula had just one goal in his previous 17 games.
