Jimmy Howard will sit when Detroit plays the Boston Bruins in game five this (April 26) afternoon. Jonas Gustavsson will start for the second straight game. Howard was a last minute scratch from game four, the club said he had the flu.

The Bruins can wrap up the series with a win. You can hear the game live on right here on Kool-AM at 1400 and 1490 AM. Pre-game begins at 2:30pm.

Wings coach Mike Babcock says Howard did not practice Friday and hopes he will be able to backup Gustavsson.

Expect Tuukka Rask to start for the B's.
