Mrazek gets a break from some fans because he's our #3. He had some really bad games while being thrust into the starting role with our #1 and #2 out, and got lucky the team scored enough so he could win games. It was'nt as if he came up and had multiple shutouts and lots of games with 1 or 2 GAA. He struggled, some nights badly. But I guess as long as were winning, who cares right? lol
Howard is expected to perform, and when he does'nt, even if it's his first start in over a month, he does'nt get those breaks. It's all on him, even when the whole team sucks. When or if Mraz is the legitimate starter, it'll be like that for him too. Goalie bashing is LGW favourite pastime.
No Howard doesn't get breaks because we go from 3-1 to 5-4 and lose in a shootout. Howard wont get a break because we have lost 8 out of the 10 shootouts we have been in with him. Not saying he isn't a good goalie, he is but for people to get all mad because we get on him because of those reasons is a bit silly. If it were just here and there it would be one thing but its a trend with him especially in the shootouts, let's be honest here.
