Versus. Home of Bad Haired Commentators. Wow. :blink: Keith Jones looks decent. Can't believe I just said that.


It's all relative. Like Olczyk's parents.

Dammit, I really wish they hadn't shown that video. It gets to me every time I see it.

Regardless if Howard could have had that or not, he has played very well this game. So I dont think anyone should really be faulting him. Hope he can keep it up next period! :cool:

I feel like I should be seeing highlights of the goals from the second period. Oh wait, it's Versus.

His glove was where it should have been but then the puck was deflected. Pucks don't have to be deflected over the shoulder for them to be excusable.


If the puck sneaks in on a non-screened shot like that, how can you say that Howard played that shot correctly?

Honestly, it was soft. Whoopdie doo.

Every goalie slappy around here will be quick to point out how every goal is seemingly deflected.

If it was deflected, it wasn't much of a change in direction. Howard has to stop that shot.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

It was deflected. A goalie can't reposition that quickly when the puck is deflected. It happens all of the time. If that puck isn't deflected and it still goes in, then it is a different story.

Decent game so far. The Filppula line sure has looked like the number one line so far this season. The second Avs goal was unlucky all-around. Miss-communication at their blue line, a lightly tipped puck that Howard saves 80 out of a 100 times. Defense has been good minus when Kindl and Salei are out there defending our zone.

Third period should be interesting. Are we gunna play to win or play not to lose.

True that Howard has a chance to stop the shot, but when the puck is coughed up at the opposing blue line and the forward manages to get enough separation between himself and the defenders to wind up an aimed slapper from the nearer side of the circle and release it without disruption, you can't really pin the blame on the goalie.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

If Howard was in butterfly correctly he wouldn't have needed to reposition. It went between his glove and pad. He didn't try to move his glove up to stop the shot originally, so I don't see how he needed to reposition based on where the shot deflected.

Besides, the puck went like 2 inches from Duchene's stick before deflecting, and the puck didn't even change direction all that much.

Soff.

Nobody is calling Howard out in regards to season play like they did Osgood last year. But that goal could be a momentum killer, especially after all the sustained pressure Detroit had in their zone. Hudler first starting it off and Howard being unable to stop a shot between his glove and pad.

On a totally different note... Im happy about how the Refs have called this game. No phantom calls on either side and they haven't tried to take over the game.
...Then again, we still have another period to go! <_<

It's not nearly as bad as the ads on the glass on FSN.
