Yea, that 10-2 record is so hard to swallow. Sounds like you should go back to the Blackhawks bandwagon.
Osgood? I would feel safer with Ericsson in the net, this team hasn't got a decent backup and howard have serious rebound issues
So the defensive coverage in front of the net didn't matter? Lidstrom not picking his guy up on the final goal didn't matter? I guess the old addage rings true here...
Except the Red Wings had the puck in Minnesota's zone 95% of the game and the Wild still managed to score four goals (three of which are solely on Howard).
I'm all for saying it wasn't a great team effort, but Jimmy Howard and his lack of rebound control cost us a point tonight. He'll bail the team out plenty this season, but he really deserves the blame for this loss. I think even idiots could see that.
Win, and its a team effort.
Lose, and its the goalies fault.
Wow, where have I heard that before? Typically from armchair hockey fans.
