“The building seems a lot louder (this season), but that comes with the territory,” goaltender Jimmy Howard said. “When you’re winning, it seems like the fans are having that much more fun.”

More winning, more fans, more fun.

Coach Jeff Blashill has liked the tenacity, but gives credit to Howard and No. 2 goalie Jonathan Bernier for giving the Wings a chance to rally these last three games.

“Our goaltenders have allowed us to hang in the games, but you can’t rely on that forever,” Blashill said. “The reality is, any of those games, if it goes to three-goal games, it’s way harder to come back.”

The Red Wings goaltending definitely deserves a lot of credit for the last few wins.
