#1977754 Don't blame Howard.. blame Babcock

Posted by mjlegend on 06 May 2010 - 05:08 PM

Random collection of three other teams with spots essentially guaranteed, fighting for position:

Kings: Jon Quick played in 17 of last 20 Kings games.
Devils: Martin Brodeur played in 19 of last 21 NJ games.
Penguins: Marc-Andre Fleury played in 17 of final 20.

Then:
Red Wings: Howard in 20 of last 21.


We're talking that maybe one or two games down the stretch is the reason he's had a sub-par couple of games now? Sixth to 120 minutes of hockey in two and a half months?

It's a dangerous conclusion. By this logic, the next time the Red Wings are up 3-1 in a series, they should rest the starter and give the backup some time until the next round.

FWIW, I also thought Howard should have gotten a rest against Edmonton late in the season but I'm not going to blame a possible second round loss on that one start.
