Howard, who has been out since December 20 with an MCL sprain, allowed five goals on 29 shots in a rehab start for the Griffins on Saturday night. The game marked Howard's first game at Van Andel Arena since May 2009. Howard played four seasons in Grand Rapids before joining the Red Wings full-time during the 2009-2010 season.
