(AP) — Mired in their longest losing streak of the season, the Detroit Red Wings are forced to deal with another injury to a key player.

Even short-handed, Detroit should have a good chance to continue its home dominance of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

With the status of goaltender Jimmy Howard uncertain, the Red Wings look to avoid a fifth straight defeat and keep the league-worst Blue Jackets winless on their road trip Thursday night.

Howard left Tuesday’s 4-3 overtime loss at Nashville with blurred vision after allowing two goals on seven shots in 11:22 of ice time. He is 6-5-2 with a 3.08 goals-against average and has started all but two of Detroit’s games.
