Yep, he's not been Ozzie-08-09-regular-season terrible, but to give up 4 goals each and every game.....you gotta at least give your team a chance to win the game,
stopping 40 shots its doing more than enough to keep your team in it, even if you do let in 4 goals.. at some point the defense has to realize hes not god back there, throw him a bone and start helping him!
even if hes not stopping 40 shots, you cant cough up the give aways in the zone, or let up the odd man rushes and expect him to save you..
i cant blame howard at all with what was in front of him, losing these 3 games has been a team effort. not howards fault.
um, sharks have had to score 4 goals a game to win. it does happen in the playoffs
and if you have to score 4-5 goals a game to win, that ain't gunna happen in the playoffs.
