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.

 

LOL

 

To blame Jimmy for this loss would imply that the team in front of him deserved to win.

 

They scored (for all intents and purposes) ONE GODDAMN GOAL.

 

ONE

 

Not Jimmy's fault.

I was going to say...it seemed very strange how he made NO EFFORT AT ALL to get back into the net on the last goal.  I mean, WTF?

 

Edit: To be clear, I'm a Howard supporter and I'm happy with his new contract.  But not impressed on that play at all.

Wings now in 9th. Still a game in hand on CLB. Still on pace to make playoffs if they get 3 or 4 more wins


Only breathing is more important than winning

"For most of a decade, the Wings were the most popular team not just because they won, but also because they won with flair, with speedy Russians and legendary leaders and the occasional willing fighter"

I'm not saying the loss is Jimmy's fault but we probably would have gotten at least one point if his head was actually in the game.

 

For all intents and purposes calgary scored ONE GODDAMN GOAL

 

ONE

 

by your logic and it would have gone to OT.

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

I guess...it seems to me like getting people crashing the net would be more important than throwing even more low quality chances at the net.  I find them much too passive on offense (see: Filppula).

Not only that, but the entire reason it looked like he lost track of the puck to begin with was because he was waiving his arms around about something down ice and wasn't even paying any attention to the puck whatsoever, which obviously led to him him whiffing on it and giving up that horrible goal.

Against a goaltender that stood on his head. Jimmy faced seventeen shots and gave up three goals. Kipper faced 34 and gave up 2. Jimmy himself said the loss was his fault, so what is your end game in arguing the contrary?

Spare me.

 

To win in this league, you need to score more than one goal. Period.

Aaaaaand Gaborik assists on the game winner in OT.  Columbus wins. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

FINISH SCORING CHANCES

 

A goalie playing an outstanding game is twofold: the goalie makes a good save and/or the offensive player fails to finish.
