Zetterberg in, Howard out for Red Wings in Game 4

The Sports NetworkApril 24, 2014 

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Red Wings announced just before the start of Thursday's Game 4 that captain Henrik Zetterberg is back in the lineup, while goaltender Jimmy Howard is out against the Boston Bruins.

Zetterberg has missed Detroit's last 30 games with a back injury, which caused the Swedish winger to leave one game into the Sochi Olympics. He had surgery to repair a herniated disc on Feb. 21.

Howard was a late scratch with the flu, paving the way for the 29-year-old Jonas Gustavsson to make his first career playoff start.

Howard posted a 25-save shutout in Detroit's Game 1 victory, but has allowed six goals on 62 shots over the last two games, leading to consecutive setbacks for the Red Wings.

Gustavsson went 16-5-4 over 27 games with the Red Wings during the regular season.
