So, the stupid and completely unavoidable penalty and the awful line change did not contribute at all? Or, they were Howard's fault? Garbage. I refuse to even consider the rest of your post at all because it includes that B.S.
You have to put a lot of words in my mouth to feel the way you do. I'd prefer it if you didn't do that.
Sure, that first goal came on a Bruins power play, but it wasn't a play that developed due to a unique power play situation. I don't think anyone sans the few going above and beyond to defend Howard are suggesting that it was anything but a weak, soft, absolutely unnecessary goal. Even Mickey Redmond who has a tendency of defending Howard couldn't defend him on that one, and the power play never came up in the conversation about the goal because it wasn't really a factor. As Mickey actually just said in the post-game, the Wings gave up two goals early on a platter, and that's the truth. I said earlier in the thread that the first goal was clearly on Howard and the second goal was clearly on the team performing a terrible line change. I didn't blame it on Howard and I did nothing to suggest that in my later thread.
Babcock post-game: "We gave them two goals."
