Jimmy Howard's terrible turnover leads to Bruins goal - SBNation.com
This goal can not be pinned solely on Howard's shoulders, although he definitely deserves the majority of the blame. Riley Sheahan should have made a better effort of getting the puck back in the Wings zone, and Brendan Smith should have tried to handle the puck. It was everyone's fault.
