Howard is expected to start Wednesday in Minnesota.
Donato will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday.
With Mikko Koivu returning from an illness, Donato will sit as a healthy scratch vs. the Red Wings. Donato has scored one goal with one assist in his last eight games.
The Red Wings have recalled Dennis Cholowski from Grand Rapids (AHL).
Cholowski has scored two goals with three assists (five points) in 17 games with the Griffins this season. Cholowski is expected to replace Mike Green, who is out with an upper-body injury. Cholowski has 24 points (9G / 15A) in 81 career NHL games.
Dal Colle was a late scratch on Tuesday.
Blidh is expected to make his season debut vs. the Golden Knights.
Mrazek will start Tuesday vs. the Jets.
Mrazek allowed three goals on 18 shots in the Hurricanes loss in Columbus last Thursday. He has lost his last two starts and four of his last five with a 2.46 GAA, .911 SV% and a shutout in the lone win. Tonight he sees a Jets squad that has lost four of their last five while scoring just 11 goals (2.20 GF/gm).

Bobrovsky will start Tuesday in Chicago.
Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 33 shots in the Panthers win in Minnesota last night. Bobrovsky has won three straight while stopping 86 of 93 shots (.925 SV%). Tonight he faces a Blackhawks team, that has also won five straight games and have averaged an impressive 4.40 goals per game during that run.
Haula may be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.
Based on line rushes in Monday's practice, it looks like Haula could sit Tuesday vs. the Jets. Haula has missed time due to a knee injury this season, so scratching him on Tuesday could be a way to give him an extra couple of days off before the Hurricanes bye week. Jordan Martinook would replace Haula if he's out.
Greiss starts Tuesday in New York.
Greiss stopped 31 of 32 shots in the Islanders' shootout loss in Carolina on Sunday. It was a terrific performance from Greiss, who is 2-0-1 with a 1.81 GAA and .942 SV% in his last four appearances (three starts). Tonight he faces a Rangers team that is 5-1-0 while scoring 4.67 goals per game in their last six home games.
Mantha (mid-body) will miss at least one more month; could miss the rest of the season.
Mantha, who has been out since December 21st, will be sidelined until at least late February. Head coach Jeff Blashill did not rule out the possibility of Mantha missing the rest of the regular season, especially when you consider that the Red Wings season is effectively over.
Nielsen (upper-body) will not play on Wednesday.
Nielsen left Monday's game early in the first period and did not return. Nielsen will miss Wednesday's game but could be back next Friday when the Red Wings return from their bye week. Christoffer Ehn will likely draw into the lineup to replace Nielsen.
Green is expected to miss a couple of weeks with an upper-body injury.
Green was forced to leave Monday's game with an upper-body injury and head coach Jeff Blashill announced that he'll be out for at least a couple of weeks. With the bye week starting after Wednesday's game, Green could only end up missing roughly seven games. Jonathan Ericsson will likely draw back into the lineup for Ericsson on Wednesday.
Koivu (illness) will return to the Wild lineup on Wednesday.
Koivu has missed the last two games with an illness but will play Wednesday vs. the Red Wings. Koivu will centre a line with Jordan Greenway and Ryan Hartman and heads into Wednesday with 13 points (2G / 11A) in 35 games.
Dubnyk will start Wednesday vs. the Red Wings.
Dubnyk gave up seven goals on 29 shots in the Wild's loss in Pittsburgh last Tuesday. Dubnyk has struggled in his last five outings, going 1-4-0 with a 3.67 GAA and .867 SV%. Tonight he faces a Red Wings team that has lost five in a row while scoring 1.60 goals per game.
Elliott will start Tuesday vs. the Penguins.
Elliott stopped 34 of 35 shots in the Flyers win over the Kings on Saturday. Since Carter Hart got hurt, Elliott has gone 2-0 while stopping 64 of the 68 shots (.941 SV%) that he has faced. In his first start vs. the Penguins, Elliott allowed six goals on 28 shots in a 7-1 loss in late-October.
Lehner will start Tuesday vs. the Panthers.
Lehner stopped 36 of 38 shots in the Blackhawks win over the Jets on Sunday. Lehner is riding a three-game winning streak, posting a stellar 1.99 GAA and .938 SV% in the process. He gets set to face a Panthers team that played last night but have won five in a row while scoring an incredible 5.20 goals per game.
Fleury confirmed to start Tuesday in Boston.
Fleury gave up four goals on 32 shots in the Golden Knights shootout loss in Montreal on Saturday. Fleury has lost four of his last five starts (1-3-1) while posting a 3.20 GAA and .877 SV%, so he's definitely not at the top of his game right now. He'll look to get back on-track in Boston, where the Bruins are 4-1-1 while scoring 3.50 goals per game in their last six games at TD Garden.
