DETROIT - Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard is day-to-day after an MRI revealed no major damage to his left shoulder.

General manager Ken Holland says Howard should be able to return next weekend, if not Wednesday night against St. Louis. Detroit also plays Chicago on Monday night. The Red Wings plan to call up Thomas McCollum from Toledo of the ECHL to back up goalie Joey MacDonald in the meantime.

Howard left the Red Wings' game against Toronto in the third period Saturday night after the Maple Leafs' Joffrey Lupul fell on him.
