Howard is like most goalies - as his defense goes, so goes his game. With the players we have had injured and the duration of the outages, I am not really surprised Howard is worn down and off his game.
There are really very few goalies playing right now who I consider game-stealers, aside from Thomas, on occasion.
We expect way too much of this team. That said, they looked like they were skating in a different dimension last night. They have to be better, or there is no hope for Jimmy.
Get out the torches and pitchforks. It's been a while since the fans have run a goalie out of town in Detroit, for playing as well if not better than the majority of NHL goaltenders... it's Jimmy's turn!
auugh.. our boo-boo list makes me want to boo-hoo. But, at least we can watch a game without hearing you-know-who's name every shift. No doubt there will still be many, many mentions of his highness, but I bet his team mates are enjoying their time as hockey players, rather than nannies on skates.
Go, Wings. Win this one, we need to catch Vancouver!!!!
