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.
Everyone here knew they needed insurance and when the late PP came up for the Hawks i had that gut feeling that the Wings would not be getting more than a point. How bad is it when your team is up by one but you know they are going to lose the game.
This team is a bunch of plebs with the exception of a few players.
Brunner is useless during regular play and he has choked in the SO back to back and that was the one thing he was suppose to be good at. He needs to go back to the pillow soft Swiss league.
Wings are not a playoff team it is now clear, Blue Jackets deserve that final spot. They have been rolling lately, playing with energy and heart.
Wings have two of the easiest opponents you could ask for coming up with Nashville and Calgary if they don't win both they do not belong in the playoffs.
