Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard, named to his second NHL All-Star game earlier Saturday, left early in the first period with a groin injury after attempting to make the save on Brouwer’s goal.
Howard remained down on his stomach as the trainer came out. After about five minutes, he rose to his knees, was placed on a stretcher and carted to the locker room.
The two teams will be determined during the NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft on Friday, Jan. 23. Captains for each squad will be announced next week.
