Their goalie is making saves, ours isn't.
Pretty simple stuff.
I don't think Chicago necessarily played all that much better than the Wings.
We had a more consistent attack (but nobody on this team can finish).
We did have some pretty bad turnovers, but Chicago did as well.
The difference to me has been Howard's terrible rebounds.
The first goal was 100% a result of his inability to direct rebounds into the corner, it went right back into play (like it always does) and they capitalized.
Can't blame him on the second goal.
But there have been plenty of times in the first where Chicago gets more of an opportunity to do something because the first shot is kicked right back into the slot by Howard.
He has played well this season, but rebound control is horrible by him, and most of his bad games are where teams capitalize on that.
