I'll try not to go into a Jim Mora rant, but I do not feel Howard is going to take the Wings anywhere in the playoffs at the rate he is going. It's only been a couple of games since his return from injury, so hopefully he'll pick it up a bit down the stretch. I am really frustrated with how much of an unnecessary defensive liability Howard is though. It is bad enough our defense has its rich moments during contests, but adding fuel to the fire is even more incredibly frustrating. I know that shootouts are not part of the playoffs, but good goaltenders don't blow it off like it's nothing. His numbers in the shootout are outright pathetic (1-8, 9 saves/24 shots faced, a 37.5% save percentage). Good goaltenders find a way to at least be somewhat respectable in the shootout.

As bad as the team has been defensively tonight, it is an absolute miracle they were able to salvage a point from this contest.

Yeah now you change goalies. Is that Brad Ausmus behind the bench?

A 1 goal lead in the 3rd period? I've seen this script before...

Man if we can't even beat the stinkin' Oilers I am going to throw a chair Kocur style.
