1. Moving Howard right now is one word. Dumb. Unless you get a quality backup in return you go into the season with a goalie going into only his 2nd real season who's regular season play is straight up bipolar backed up by Tom freaking McCollum.
2. I can't wait for 4-5 years down t he road when Mrazek is in the same spot as Howard with the fans. It doesn't matter how well he does the fans will always want the next guy.
Z had an alrightt game to me, still hasn't scored a goal if he doesn't wake up this series is over.
I agree he was twice the player hes been all series tonight. Set Nyquist up for two grade A chances that Nyquist somehow lost control of the puck. Was also wide open on Nyquists 10ft high saucer pass on a 3v1.
Tonight could be a repeat of Game 1. In Game 3 Tampa had more good looks than Detroit they just couldn't cash in. Johnson wont miss two empty nets again so Detroit needs to come out and get a lead and Mrazek will have to steal it the rest of the way. Should Detroit win its a good 50/50 they move on. The Chicago series two years ago proves that the 4th win is the toughest to get.
Z really needs to step up. Its sad to say but the guy has just looked old for 3 months. Rapidly declining old.
