#1931437 Osgood to start Sunday

Posted by Zetts on 03 April 2010 - 10:47 PM

For those of you who are of the mind "Chris Osgood sucks, Jimmy Howard should play 90 minutes a game" I have some information for you.

In Jimmy Howard's last ten starts, here are his stats:

W/L/OTL: 5-4-1
GA: 27
SA: 265
Sv: 238
SO: 0
Mins: 597
Sv%: .898
GAA: 2.71
SAPG: 26.6

And an inordinate number of the goals he's given up recently have been 'weak' goals.

So claiming "Playing Osgood will ruin our season!" after the way Howard has been playing recently is ignorant, biased, or both. If Osgood is stellar against Philly, I wouldn't be shocked to see him get two of the remaining games after that. If he gets a shutout in impressive fashion, maybe even all three. Doubtful he can do anything at this point to change Babcock's mind on who the playoff starter is, but he might earn a couple extra regular season starts with some strong play.

Edit: Doc beat me to it. Eva, those stats are clearly made up.

Well, that brings the Wing's record to 2-4 in games that I've gone to.

I miss Zetterberg's domination. What the heck happened to this guy over the past year?

It was a fairly exciting finish though. My voice is gone from that.

I'm glad that Howard is starting because I'm going to the game, and want a nice, lopsided Wings victory. And there's no way Osgood would be particularly good given how long it's been since he's played.

On the other hand, it sucks that Osgood isn't playing because realistically, if he doesn't play now, I think we can say he's probably not going to for the rest of the season.

Well some random said it, so I believe it!
