Jimmy Howard replaced Jonas Gustavsson in the Detroit Red Wings’ net beginning in the second period after Gustavsson experienced dizziness during Monday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Update: Gustavsson felt fine after the game, according to’s Ansar Khan.

It’s been a season of highs and lows for “The Monster,” as he’s played well in the Red Wings net, at least when he’s been healthy enough to play. The Swedish netminder has dealt with groin and neck injuries during the 2013-14 campaign, yet he was 13-4-3 with a .910 save percentage and 2.59 GAA coming into today’s game.

The Red Wings seem to be getting healthier in general lately, but it seems like they must continue to roll with the punches.
