Who is throwing the towel in? Just pointing out the glaring reasons they lost tonight...I agree Kronwall looked bad at times too. I think he tries too much for the redirect of rebound off the boards when he attempts a shot, he needs to just blast it at the net...Q and K were awful, no ifs and or buts about it...Everyone who didn't play on the top line played with 20% energy...it was painfully obvious. Goal #2 was soft for Jimmy's standards, but despite all this, it came down to a one goal game basically...lack of offense and dumb, momentum killing penalties... Hell if is wasn't for a 5 on 3, we'd had been shutout...
As unimpressive as the WIngs were tonight the Ducks only squeaked out a 1 goal win (+EN). Plenty of room for improvement for the WIngs and still a very winnable series.
The key to this game will once again be Howard. He played great on Monday but consistency has always been his issue. He needs to show up with the same effort and allow the Wings to establish a lead. That's the only thing I'm worried about. Which Jimmy shows up?
nope besides the slip up in Calgary he has been doing it all, if not for him Wings get zero points against SJ and Chicago
I don't even understand how Howard f-ed up twice in a row. I don't even know what to say about it.
Don't care about Howard having a terrible game. Wings would be sitting in 11th or 12th without him. In a must win and considering the opposition the Wings should of had a stranglehold of this game after the first 20 minutes..... end of story.
