Several things have been lost during the lockout thus far — jobs, games and optimism, to name a few. But how about friendship? That's the case in Detroit, where Wings goalie Jimmy Howard is lamenting the loss of his good buddy Chris Osgood. Here's more, from the Free Press: Since he entered the NHL, Jimmy Howard has come to rely on Chris Osgood — as a mentor, a booster, and most of all, a friend. The lockout that's now in its 11th day dividing team personnel from players has left Howard unable to have contact with Osgood, who retired from the Wings a year ago and transitioned to goaltending development coach.
