I officially apologize to Howard for my comments when the season started. Bravo, Jimmy, Bravo! We often talk about goalies stealing games and series' and Stanley Cups, aside from one goal so far this round, Howard has stood on his chin. Hell even Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur gave up the (more than) occasional bad goal or two. There is no doubt the torch has been passed from Osgood to Howard. I only hope that Howard doesn't fall into the Osgood category in which "He played behind the Red Wings" stays on his back forever.





Osgood played on a team with Lidstrom for his entire career. Howard won't. That will be the difference, imo.

Howard won the game with that save. That would've been a momentum changer, especially short handed.

I caught Sportcenter's top 10 at number 6 and I thought for sure this would be in the top 3. Basketball and baseball :thumbdown:

There were a few points in the game where you could see Jimmy's confidence growing.

Jovanovski's goal was #10. Howard's saves weren't even included.

Huh? Jovo's goal wasn't even anything special, considering he was standing on Jimmy when he did it. Weird ESPN just baffles me sometimes.

Howard won't, but should win the Calder. He's certainly the MVP of the rookies. Zetterberg got ROBBED of his calder, I think the league should make amends and give it to Howard. That would be nice.

How does Jovo's goal make it into the top ten when it was a terrible goal that had no business actually being counted?

This is playoff goal-tending. While you can't blame your goalie for letting in the unstoppable goal in the regular season, a team NEEDS their goalie to do the unthinkable in the playoffs if they want the Cup. Howard stepped up his game with that stop.

well sportscenter's top 10 usually has at least 1-2 identical plays where somebody steals a basektball n then runs to the other side of the court n dunks it... like it barely happens or something

Watching the videos in your post and your avatar simultaneously is giving me a headache...but in the best way possible. :D

I can't stop watching Jimmy's saves on Hanzal though. Incredible.

I wouldn't go THAT far...but that save definitely bought us the time to do what we ended up doing.

Howard is going to be a phenom. He couldn't have picked a better year to up his game. I just hope the rookie jitters don't come back next series :)

Howard is fully capable of leading us to the cup. We've all seen what he can do.

Hope Ozzie is helping him find his zen :)

The second save really shows me how much he has grown as a player. That used to be something he would have let go. Nice one Jimmy!

Who cares what the media says?

This is the same media that votes in a guy like Mike Green for top 3 in the Norris. The same media that called Chris Osgood the worst goaltender to win a cup. The same media that predicted the Wings would be done without Yzerman, Shanahan, Fedorov, etc.

Howard only needs to prove himself to the Detroitf****** Red Wings. He is doing it right now, regardless of the team in front of him.

It's like Jimmy in surround sound but the video version.
