Howard was terrible.
This was just a game the Wings couldn't win no matter what. Posts, missed empty nets, ridiculous non-calls and ridiculous penalties. Crazy bad bounces and a weak Howard combines to a devastating loss.
Now we're stuck with a Game 7 which can go either way. Considering how badly the bounces went today, going into a game where one bad bounce decides the series is not where the Wings want to be right now...
I called it in the chat room at the end of the 1st "looks like one of those games"
As the game wore on I started getting flashbacks to the Edmonton series
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
