Is it just me or is it just how we play when Howie is in net?
Howard, this season, has taken a few steps back. Monster has played hands down better than Howie and the numbers don't lie. I've been questioning myself and my thoughts but after watching this last goal during the NYR/DET game today (3/9) when Jimmy comes ridiculously far out of his net to challenge a 2 on 1 odd man rush and can't correct when Stepan passes the puck 'cross ice to Kreider who waltzes in for an easy goal, it all came crashing down to reality. 3-0 Rangers. Howie is now 13-15-10 this season.
I'm a diehard Red Wings fan, I have been my whole life and this season has been a tragic injury riddled season but without all the personal up front, we need our backbone, our backstop, our goalie to be that elite force and All-Star he is a year ago.
