I love the tangents LGW goes on sometimes. I feel like I'm one of the few that realize both goalies are not playing up to snuff but I think it has more to do with being hung out to try and blowing their confidence.
I honestly thing our goaltending problems come down to a much bigger problem of just buckling down and playing a good team game. An easy example was the 4-0 Tampa game. Detroit buckled down and didn't give them any grade a chances. Against the Isles tonight we gave up way to many good chances and a terrible PK. Yes not every goal was unstoppable but the team in front of him sure didn't help them out.
Overall this isn't a 1 man problem, it's a team problem. If we lock it down and actually help our goalies out which our team has not been doing, they can start gaining their confidence back and start making the big saves when we need them.
Your right. I'd say its Defense and Nyquist playing bad right now to pick a few problems. Maybe March was just that type of Month, like December was (losing the six straight game slide). I still think there is something wrong with Howard though, perhaps he is still hurt who knows. I'd roll with Mrazek these next two games. Nothing against Howard, I just still feel more confident In Mrazek. Even after todays game. But I guess I'll be called a Howard hater for choosing Mrazek.
