The first one was a bad goal to give up.  Unscreened under his glove. 
 
I don't fault him for the second one.  It's a broken play and he's coming out to cut down the angle, with no defensive help in sight. 


He doesn't have to go to the face off circle to cut down the angle.

TB announcers calling out Mrazek for diving!


These guys are the worst I have ever heard. No analysis on hockey, just bad commentary.

Now we see why Glendening was a walk-on everywhere.

According to the Tampa TV announcers, we have gotten away with 5,439 penalties in this game.

not fair, the first is 100% on Ericsson for the giveaway/own screen combo (what's new), the second he was deep b/c he was covering the post while the D let it go out front and the third was a fluke thanks to andersson putting his skate exactly where it should never be.

I love bashing Howie on his consistent mediocrity but this game is not on him yet

1. There's no bashing. He's let in two that should have been stopped. I didn't say he sucked or make a "bashing" type comment. I'm sick of hearing someone is bashing Howard if you state the obvious: he hasn't been good at all.
2. Your goalie gets paid to bail the defensemen out from time to time. He hasn't done that very much at all.
3. You can make excuses all day long but it's not just me or the people in the blog saying this. Mickey, the coaches, hell....even Jimmy has said he hasn't been good.

Unfortunately there are two major groups of people in here that post about howard.
1. Nothing is Howard's fault. He's just unlucky because of bounces and the people around him let him down.

vs

2. Everything is Howard's fault and he only makes the easy saves.

There's only a few of us in here that see Howard as a decent goalie (not elite) that lacks the athleticism to be great. This is to say that Howard's Celing is not as high as the top guys. Howard's usually good at positioning but lately he's been off. That last goal was the perfect example of this.

Mike Smith would throw his own baby in front of a train if he thought it would get him a whistle or draw a penalty. 


Mike Smith lost his kid in a freak train accident.

Brutal shift for Quincey, now PK.


He's been bad since the trade deadline.

This team is the same as last years team. None of the young guys are mentally or physically strong enough to last an entire season. There's a reason the bigger stronger teams play their best at seasons end and into the playoffs.

Andersson=Cleary. No idea why he has a roster spot

I have a chorale rehearsal so I have the DVR going. I will be able to pop on wifi at times, so any recap of the action will be appreciated. Let's Go Wings!


Let me go ahead and sum it up for you then.
We come out fast and dominate the entire first period scoring 5 goals (Helm, Helm, Helm, Z, Tats). Quincey Smith and Big E combine for zero penalty minutes the entire game and Mrazek shuts the freakin' door on any hope the Panthers have in the 2nd and 3rd. Wings win 6-1. Nyquist picks up the EN goal. Enjoy the night off

Bettman said to the refs: "We need this game to be closer...make it happen"

That my friends is called a "One-timer". I didn't know we were allowed to do that anymore.

What is the argument again for Howard just being an Average goalie? I honestly don't know why people get so upset with that.
