It's somehow fitting that Detroit's goaltending picture is getting fuzzy again with the playoffs less than two weeks away.
Like Curtis Joseph's problems with his right ankle, Detroit's goaltending saga won't go away (too bad for the Red Wings, but hockey writers are grateful).
Joseph reinjured his ankle Tuesday in pregame warmups and will have a magnetic resonance image exam Friday when the team returns to Detroit from a five-game road trip that ends Thursday night against archrival Colorado. The Red Wings (43-20-11-2), who lead the Avalanche by five points in the race for first in the Western Conference, play the Avalanche again at home Saturday.
Curtis Joseph's recent injury is the latest twist in a turbulent season for the veteran goalie.
