At this point, I would put more blame on the lack of goal scoring. Kinda hard to win games when you only score 1 goal per game. Heck, today we have nothing and only 3 shots on goal.
Lets put it this way, if Howard was allowing 5 goals and losing 5-4, I would agree with you. *cough cough* Lindback
Fair or not, Howard has to stand on his head just to give us a chance in this series. We knew that going in, and nothing's changed. He can't let in softies. Can't happen. That we're not generating offense just hammers the point home. Time for him to earn his big fat contract.
