5 seconds of watching the Ducks and I realize what Detroit doesn't have. I haven't seen good man-on-man defense in Detroit all season.

 

And the Jackets just scored...

s***ty announcers?

 

The wings lost because of Kipper, not Howard. First of all, if kipper wasn't spectacular all game, those goals wouldn't have had as much of an affect on the outcome. Secondly, its not like howard could have done anything on the first bad goal. The second one was more his fault, but it has to be unbelievably hard to judge when the puck will get into the trapezoid AND when the player will get there all by just eyeballing. It was his fault, but he DESERVES to be cut some slack.

 

You clearly haven't watched many games this season. Their defensemen have been surprisingly good after losing the best defensemen of all time. And explain how Detroit has allowed 2 goals or less practically every game over the last 2 months


Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Why did Brunner change on the second goal? Who else did he think was going to help Jimmy retrieve that puck?

I just feel really bad for Dan Cleary.

 

This could be his last chance to win another Cup, and his teammates and Howard let him down.


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Sport's announcer"s keep saying game after game it seems that the wing's are struggling to find the back of the net. I think they need to look at that statement. Tonight is a good example. The Flames has a great goalie and he stopped many shot's on goal. Made some awesome plays unlike our goalie. Even if we make it to the playoffs we don't stand a chance with Howard !!!!!!!! 

 

 

How are those two statements related? 

 

If we aren't scoring, then when we win games it is because of Howard! We don't stand a chance with our current goal production. In the history of goaltending in the NHL there have been no more than 10 goals scored by goalies, so don't expect Howard to get a shutout every game. It's not possible, and all three goals tonight were because of bad puck luck. He made bad plays yes, but he also had bad luck. Wings need to score more than 2 goals a game if they're going to get into the playoffs, plain and simple. No other goalie in the world is going to be able to win more than Howard has if the team doesn't score more than 2 goals.

Your franchise goalie is absolutely not allowed to have a s***ty game when the playoffs are on the line. That's why he is your franchise goalie and why you pay him what you do.


Then I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. There is an entire team in front of Jimmy that has underperformed and hung him out to dry time and time again. They are responsible for this season. This is one game. Granted, it comes at a clutch time, but that wouldn't be the case if this TEAM hadn't backed themselves into a corner.

Jimmy's allowed to have a s***ty game.  Some of our players have had a s***ty entire (half) season.  Blaming Jimmy?  Really?  This board...sometimes I feel like I'm being trolled hard.  I'm just gonna...go over here...

He wasn't spectacular.
 
He was laying on the goal line for many of those saves, and the Wings crappy shooters couldn't elevate the puck.  The Kindl save he had no screen in front of him.  
 
He did make a few great saves, but the blame should go on the Wings more than anything.  There's a reason we're in the bottom half of the league in goals scored.  We make every goalie look good.

Nah.
 
Holland will sign some washed up trash in the offseason, and be afraid to "overpay" for anyone else.  

This team won't look much different next year, except we'll be a little younger with Cleary and Bertuzzi gone, and replaced by GR players.

But there still won't be any sniper or big, physical forwards here.  

 

Oh I know that's why I put the emoticon within the post

Was it Jimmy Howard that failed to capitalize on all of those scoring chances?

 

Did Jimmy Howard have a TERRIBLE line change on that PP that left no one behind the goal line except Jimmy, Steve Begin, and the trapezoid?

 

Did Jimmy Howard throw the puck into his feet from Big E's stick?

 

 

 

It is not Jimmy Howard's fault the Red Wings lack a legitimate scoring threat.

Dats has missed the net more this year than his entire career.

 

At least tonight, Dats missing the net is a good point as well. 

 

I agree with the consensus, Howie lost this one for us tonight, but lest we not forget Dats had a couple great chances as well tonight where he just straight up missed the net.

Already dreaming of Mother Russia no doubt.  

 

Getting him back should be priority number one.  Even ahead of firing Holland.

We're outshooting them 36-17...  I really don't think that's the problem.

I'm talking about their overall play in this shortened season.  it is a consistent, STUPID, fixable problem  They pass too much, period.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Did Jimmy Howard forget to drink his coffee and look extremely slow and disinterested on both goals? You're in a playoff race. You have to be on your toes, never taking your eyes off the puck, thinking at 100 mph about the next play. Not waddling around behind the net like a baby penguin expecting something to happen.

He's getting up there in age, no doubt, but if the rest of our guys had the heart of Cleary, we'd be in first place right now.
