Howard is just never clutch anymore. I actually think this game was a positive for the team, minus Howard for whom the game was a revealing disaster. The Wings scored 4 goals on the road and only 1 given up was due to bad defense. The rest was Howard looking like a clown. If Detroit can keep up the scoring, the team will do fine with Monster in the net, or Jimmy if he can gain the confidence to hold a lead. I've been a supporter of Howard his entire career until about 3 weeks ago when I recognized, along with most people on the boards, that he just isn't showing what it takes to "win" games.
