#2574285 2/23 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Ducks 4 (SO)

Posted by aflac9262 on 24 February 2015 - 01:33 AM

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.

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

Unreal victory. This is exactly what this team needed after that controversial game in Montreal. Howard came up huge late in the 2nd and through the 3rd to give the team a chance.

What an entertaining 2 minutes of power passing. This team needs some more killer instinct. Way too much hesitation and blown opportunities.

I'm just glad that wasn't a playoff game. My God. Maybe there really needs to be a challenge system in this league...

I thought Detroit played an overall decent game tonight and they certainly deserved to come away with point(s) tonight. Howard needs to cut down on the amateur mistakes behind and around the net. It is creating unnecessary pressure and tension on the defense. He's been around the majors long enough and should know better by now.

Interesting. I was not aware that Garth Snow is also the current GM of the Detroit Red Wings. May God have mercy on us all.  :ninja:

I think this might really be the Sharks' year.

Blasphemy! It's only a matter of time before the meltdown is cued up.

Eddie is climaxing after that Pittsburgh win. I hope the smoke monster from "Lost" greets him one day. :P

 

Wings are in and that's all that matters!
