Ehhh...it was a perfect shot. At first it looked bad but that was just a nice shot.

Not really, he was really hugging the post. Another "bad angle night" for howie

What a dive, but nothing new with the Sharks. Red Wings have no margin for error on this trip with this lineup and the tough competition.

Pav and Helm really need to return soon or it's going to be a struggle to make the playoffs with the inconsistency this roster produces regardless of health.

I honestly want so bad to have faith in Howard, and I truly thought he was on the upswing after the Winter Classic. That apparently is not true at all two horribly soft goals given up in this one. He needs to be pulled and sat not rewarded for his piss poor play.

 

The guys in front of him sure a hell aren't helping.

howard. sucks. 

 

So does the rest of the team aside from tatar and zetterberg though...nyquist has looked really bad lately as well

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Go look at the standings... We'll be out of a playoff spot after this road trip, guaranteed.

2-1 goal is a killer. We were playing a decent road game until then. We need a full squad and top notch goaltending to compete with teams like this

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I don't think I've ever seen such a dire situation for the wings. 6M tied up in a goalie that can't make a save and any effective player we have misses significant time. While all our useless plugs are healthy all season. Much more frustrating season than last year. Spent up to the cap finally and we're worse than we've ever been

Goaltending is s***. Goaltending can't be s*** and still win games. Pretty simple folks.

And.... There is 30 games left and we haven't been healthy all year. Could be worse spots to be.

Just not an elite team and until Jimmy can play as a top Goalie we won't be able to hang with those teams.

They definitely aren't, but the second and fourth goals from the Sharks are saves that he flat out has to make.

I'd settle for playoff team. Half the season gone now. We can't do much about our goaltending but hard decisions must be made. The fact we still have Sammy, Cleary, Kindl and Quincey playing is sad.

Have we officially hit rock bottom? Injuries or not our goaltending and Defense is healthy and they are terrible. Our offense isn't going to score 4 goals a game even if we magically can stay healthy for any period of time

Lets see, Howard gets a $6 Mil per year deal for 6 years with a NO TRADE CLAUSE! so where is the incentive to play better?? He has his $$$$ with a long term deal, why is Holland handing out NTC's on this team like Halloween candy!! the wings have 10 players with NTC's, Samuelsson,Cleary,Bertuzzi,Gustavsson,Howard,Ericsson,Weiss,Kronwall,Datsyuk and Alfredsson. The last 3 mentioned I can see making sense but the rest??? I mean WTF is Holland thinking? or is he even thinking at all?? This roster is a mess! and Holland has handcuffed himself with all these NTC's!

As far as I'm concerned that weak crap 2-1 goal lost us the game.

How has Z had a good game? He was beaten on the first goal and is now a -3 on the night.
