You're not even a little ashamed that Howard gets pushed around every game, and he's the only Wing doing anything about it?

Other teams goalies (besides Buffalo) have other players to handle that role. Howard sounded pretty upset when he made that statement a few weeks ago about "being tired of being run" or something like that. Not much has changed since then.

Howard deserves more than this.


He got punched in the face. What else would he have done? And what could the players on the ice have done differently? There were 6 Blues forwards one the ice and all of them had a Wing tied up, leaving the 6th guy on Howard.

I don't like that those were the players out there, but what exactly is Howard supposed to do differently when he gets suckere punched in the face?

Ummmm.......where was I criticizing anything Howard did?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Fixed. ;)


Honestly, no. The PP did it's job, but the Wings didn't back down. They could've phoned it in like they've done countless times before, but they stood up and hit St Louis in the mouth everytime they had too and won the game.

Howard is just so amazing....I recall when he came to the aid of Z end of a playoff game with Pitt, he gave Crosby facewash with his glove..might be somewhere on youtube.

Anyone else thinking Commie is finally playing pretty good. He's looking better and better imo. I guess that happens when you finally start to have ice time...

He should definitely get the nod over either Kindl or Ericsson imo

lol I just read some posts from letsgoblues. Wow, they are delusional... pulling out the 'Dead Wings/Things' name. Really? We've been to the playoffs 21 straight years I believe? Won 4 cups during that span and made the finals 5 times. What the f*** have they done? I'll tell you what they did do, they watched Pronger miss a hit on Stevie Y and separate his shoulder in the process. They watched Stevie Y score in double ot of game 7.

Blues fans, f*** off. Your team is little brother, we're big brother. s*** isn't going to change, and when Franzen, Datsyuk, and Zetterberg are gone we'll have more core players to own you for the 3rd decade in a row.

Lot of bitching about a lack of response to the Howard scuffle at the end there. Overall I think this game was a perfect example of why the Wings DON'T need another tough guy. They matched the Blues toughness PERFECTLY - the only difference was the Blues took stupid penalties and the Wings didn't. The final scuffle was fine by me. I don't mind seeing Howard stand up for himself - everyone else was tied up anyways.

Anyways, it was a really fun game to watch. I was impressed with the effort tonight.

Very solid, looks better than E or Kindl out there. Hope he plays until he plays himself out of the lineup, he will be huge for us in the playoffs.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.

I'm not sure finally is a good word here. He's been a '+' player every single game he's played in....exactly what you ask for from a stay-at-home defensemen. I'd definitely play him more.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Blues took two unnecessary penalties (Stewart and Colaiacovo) after clean hits by Wings and both times the power play scored. Losing your cool loses games.

Careful mate, Cprice12 will come in and tell you how great their team is and all that. The Blues are a very respectable franchise and will be dominant for the foreseeable future. The Blues play with discipline, hard work and passion for the game.

Dodge Ram: menacing grille. Jimmy Howard: shoving his glove up in your menacing grille.

They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

When you put in commitment, good things come out of it. He seems like he really wants to get back to playing proper hockey. Hopefully he can turn in to a top 4 if Stuart ends up leaving to LA.

The Blues don't have enough skill to make a playoff run.

They play too conservative and boring. It may have worked with the 1999 Stars, but Hitchcock won't duplicate it with these young pricks.

So he puts Hudler and Filppula out there to wrestle with Stewart and Backes, and he's laughing about it?

Strange reaction.

Every play was interference to them and we just get calls because we're the Red Wings lmao. Seriously go ***** some more Blues fans; cry me a freakin' river.

The Blues are an overachieving team, I don't think they will be good for years to come there's a reason why Hitchcock doesn't last long as a head coach. Eventually their game plan won't work and he'll be chased out like everywhere else.
They're too young, inexperienced, low scoring, and hot headed to keep pace with us. We'll increase our gap toward the end, book it!
