Where are al the "fans" that didn't think he could give us a chance in the playoffs??

If not for him, we are swept or at best, definitely done at 5 games. If not for him, we are down by 5 or 6 tonight!!

Jimmy has DEFINITELY proven he belongs as a starter for the next few years!!

If not for deflected goals, we may be UP 3-1 in the series right now!!

Good? He freaking amazing!!!
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Me, neither. He has been the best player this series. I think he's earning a reputation as a guy who steps up in huge games. And we need him to continue for at least two more games!

Jimmy's won me over. He's even improved with his rebounds. He's absorbing the impact of the puck better with his pads and then vacuuming it right back in to his body. He's made me a believer.

It's almost comical how Detroit goalies seem to half-ass the regular season and then flip the proverbial switch in the playoffs.

Howard's been flat out great in this round. If not for him, there wouldn't be a game on Tuesday.

Never really been nutty on goaltenders like some Wings fans, generally speaking of course, are. Whether that perception is accurate or not.

Last postseason was he great? Not always. Was he the sole reason or a major reason why they got eliminated early. Nah, I don't think so. He certainly didn't steal games or whatever, but he didn't play awful overall by any stretch of imagination.

You could make a case this postseason so far that he is the team MVP.

I think the only people not giving credit to Jimmy were trolls.

Jimmy has sincerely been the most consistent player in the post season and has definitely proved himself as an elite goalie.

Go Wings and go Howie!

The only reason this series is coming back is because of Jimmy Howard. The only reason the Wings were in the first two games was because of Jimmy Howard.

Hell, if Howard had some help in games one and two, this series would be over right now, with the Wings moving on.

How dare us to doubt a goalie before the playoffs who ranked near the bottom in goalie statistics.

I worried about Jimmy..Hes been playing outside his mind and I am glad I am wrong. Lets hope he plays like this on a regular basis for a few years. Wings would be very tough too beat if that were the case.

Lol :thumbup: very good.

Where were all the "fans" who claimed we didn't have to worry about defense or offensive depth this series because Howard would steal games for us? We were all verrrry confident in Mr. Howard this year, as I recall.
