Great game from the kids once again, and of course the star of the show... Helm.
Howard was ok he was very close to absolutely screwing the game up but was ok overall. The point is he has to be better, Toronto is just awful right now.
Franzen was the worst Wings player in this game, lazy as phuk once again, slow as a sloth and almost cost us a few goals against. If Abdelkader is back against Tampa this bum should be taken out of the lineup.
People just won't get off the hate Howard bandwagon. Makes some solid saves that keep us in a game we were about to lose and he still sucks. Just trade Franzen and Howard now why don't ya. Typical Wings fans though, always hating on the goalie.
I'm not saying Jimmy has to have a shut out every game, but there's got to be some games down the stretch where we say, wow, we should not have won that game, Howard stole that one for us. There haven't been many like that this year.
You mean like when Jimmy made a breakaway save in OT in a game we were out shot 43 to 30?
For those of us that can't see videos at work could I get a quick description of it? I'm gathering some of the details by reading the comments you posted.
Seems like a make-a-wish type thing. Kid has life-long heart condition, gets signed to a one-day contract with Sharks, and skated out with them through their shark head thingy. They said it's the first time anyone that was a non-real-player was allowed through there. They didn't say, but it almost looks like he got to stay on the bench for the game. Not sure though.
