Boston leading the Rangers 3:0 with a few minutes to play in the first. Lundqvuist sucks ?!

The guy hasn't played in a few months.... He will be in form within a week. He actually wins series for his team in the playoffs.

If Jimmy can't get it done tonight then we need to switch to Petr... big game tonight and good news that Kronners is back.

Howard did not earn his money last season and is now not earning his money this season. Without Pete, we wouldn't be in a playoffs spot right now because we have not been good since he was playing while Jimmy was out and it was Pete winning us games. Jimmy has been so inconsistent that it is not even funny. The goals he gave up last night were laughable and he was the reason we lost that game. There is no denying that. He is not a terrible goalie, but he lacks consistency and he is hurting the Wings right now. If I am Babcock I would sit Jimmy for now and play Pete. If Pete plays good keep playing him. The team always plays more confident in front of Pete and they move the puck out easier too because of his puck ability. Simply put if Jimmy Howard starts for us in the playoffs if he is as he is now, we lose in 4 games. We have 10 games left and I am tired of  betting on Jimmy to be consistent.

2 things to note about the winner: 


1- NHL probably has it in their mind the goal is unreviewable (whereas I think all goals should be) 

2- The only point where I see the stick clearly broken is after he makes contact with Allen's pads, at that point the stick is awkwardly bent (thus broken imo) neither the refs, nor abby would have the reaction time to identify that as a broken stick before the puck went in. I think it would be unfair to call it back. 


2 things about the officials 

1 - The linesmen were absolutely brutal! 

2 - the amount of interference let go by both sides was VERY interesting. It wasn't subtle at all. 


And I liked it. Allowing interference like that take place makes it safer to go back and retrieve pucks. That is why there have been so many more injuries the past few seasons because more guys are getting run because of the amount of interference calls. In my opinion, the refs let both team play today and the majority of calls made were clear calls. That is how it should be.

Good call putting zids on, best d-man on the team


Besides Kronwall you mean. Kronwall is very much undervalued by some people on this forum. He had an awesome game today by the way.
