Looking back on the Wings' last 10 games, there's one glaring thing about them: 8 of them had the Wings giving 3 or more goals.
Games where the Wings give up 3 goals:
12/27 against COL (W)
12/29 against DAL (W)
Games where the Wings give up 4 goals:
12/17 against CHI (L)
12/19 against DAL (L)
12/22 against VAN (W)
12/23 against STL (L)
12/31 against NYI (L)
Game where the Wings give up 5 goals:
12/13 against LAK (L)
Here's the goalies where they give up 3 or more goals:
12/13 against LAK: 5-0 loss
12/17 against CHI: 1-4 loss
12/22 against VAN: 4-5 win (OT)
12/29 against DAL: 7-3 win
12/31 against NYI: 4-3 loss (OT)
12/19 against DAL: 4-3 loss (OT)
12/23 against STL: 4-3 loss
12/27 against COL: 4-3 win (OT)
Last 5 games for both goalies:
12/17 against CHI: 1-4 L
12/22 against VAN: 4-5 (OT) W
12/26 against MIN: 4-1 W
12/29 against DAL: 7-3 W
12/31 against NYI: 4-3 (OT) L
12/04 against LAK: 2-3 (OT) L
12/11 against NJD: 4-1 W
12/19 against DAL: 4-3 (OT) L
12/23 against STL: 3-4 L
12/27 against COL: 4-3 W
Same number of games where 3 or more goals are scored against the goalies. Guys, don't you think that, maybe, just maybe, the defense isn't doing it's job? It's one thing to say Howie or Ozzie sucks when it's just that one goalie, but that isn't the case.
Again, it looks like the offense is going to have to score 4 or more goals to win games now .
Unless the D steps up, that's probably true. Missing Lilja more than one would have thought, perhaps.
This is not rational, it's factual information. Therefore, it won't make any difference to those who are biased one way or the other re: goalies.
