You were awesome Jimmy. Absolutely stellar play by you. :thumbup:

Got way more faith in our goaltending going forward than I did just a month ago.

5-2 all-time in postseason elimination games. Not too shabby, kid.

You've won my respect, Jimmy. You did good.

Scratch that - you didf****** phenomenal.

Cant blame one game on him. Unlike the regular season where almost every game was blamed on him.

Howard was amazing, and that's all I have to say about that.

Way to go Howard he is the future and the future looks like cups!

Now we need a defense in front of him and he will be a force in this sport.

Yeah he earned my respect since I was ready to throw him under a bus during the regular season.

I see no issues in net for the Wings for a while. Jimmy was a rock. Even tonight when he got caught, he somehow got back to stop the wrap around.

Howie. Thank you. You were the heart and soul of the team on a team full of heart and soul, so that's saying something. You kept us in it. Cheers.

Would just like to reiterate what Ozzie30 (aka Howie 35) said: Ericsson, GTFO.

They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

I know that the respect and admiration most people are giving him now will probably evaporate in 3 months. Still, I am a big supporter of the Wings and their goaltenders. Howard played solid in playoffs. I think they can make a strong run next season too.

Jimmy was frakin' awesome! I hope the Canucks sweep those dirty chokes.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, I love Jimmy Howard.

He played his heart out, and gave the rest of the team the opportunity to win.

I hope next season the Wings come back and allow him to raise the cup as a starter.

Great season, Jimmy. It has been a pleasure watching your career progress and I cannot wait to see you again in the fall. :clap:

He had a great season, I can think of only a few goals this series that he should have had, the rest were just deflections, bad bounces, or bad defense. Cannot wait for next season!

I think we should all feel confident about our goaltending for the near future.
