Don't forget the Wings are also winless when they get shutout.
Not talking out of both sides of my mouth at all. Howard hasn't shown he's capable of winning playoff games unless the Wings score 3+ goals. Does he have good D play this year? No, not really. Has he played poor so far this playoffs? Again, no not really.
But please, I'm supposed to go crazy because the Red Wings beat the Ducks in a playoff series We're the Red Wings.
The title of this thread isn't Howard's a bad goalie in the Ducks/Hawks series. It's Jimmy Howard is not a good playoff goalie. And his stats back that up.
Sure thing, Nucky Jr.
Your a retard.
God... Again. Address the Verlander question. Is he not a good big game pitcher?
For the love of Trevor...™
Here is why your criteria suck:
* Lundqvist has made it out of the 2nd round 1 time in 7 tries
* Quick has made it out of the 2nd round 1 time in 4 tries (his rookie season, he couldn't get the LAK into the playoffs)
* Crawford has never made it out of the 2nd round (2 previous tries, lost in 1st round both times)
* 2010 Game 4 against Phoenix, Wings win 3-0 with two late 3rd period goals. 29 saves by Howard in a game that was 1-0 until there were 4 min left. This doesn't show up in your "stat".
* 2010 Game 5 against Phoenix, the game is 1-1 until the Wings score 3 goals (including an EN) in the last 10 minutes. This doesn't show up in your "stat".
* 2011 Game 6 against San Jose, Wings win 3-1 with an empty netter. Obviously, that EN goal with one minute left made this vastly different than the 2-1 result you are yearning for.
So out of 30+ playoff ganes you can give three examples, with two being borderline ( really, Wings scored a bunch half way through a period, but that somehow constitutes Howard's ability to win a low scoring game?)
And I never said those goalies above were clutch, all I said were they all did something this playoff that Howard's never been able to do in 30+ games. And please, Quick has and is the sole reason the Kings won the Cup last year

I'd say OK, that was a tough loss
However, JV has SHOWN he has the ability to shut down the other team in key situations in playoff games
You are thinking I'm only talking about the loss last night and that's not true at all. Im talking about Howard's playoff play in general. It's mediocre at best
Howard's never won a playoff game unless the Wings score 3+ goals. Never. Out of 30+ tries.
Key situations? You mean like the World Series?
Hey, this game is fun.
I love that empty netters count in your little stat. If a game's "low scoring" for 59 minutes, then there is an empty netter, that proves to you that Howard is not a good goalie.
At some point, you just have to stop feeding the troll. Either he's a dbag just f'ing around with you or he's totally ignorant of any hockey knowledge. Put him on ignore and walk away.

If you want to argue with facts, go ahead.
0-12 if the Wings score fewer than 3 goals.

Exactly. Just like the people who put all the blame on Maxwell.
The Detroit goalie always takes more grief than he deserves.
If we can trick Coach Krzyzewski into saying his own name backwards, perhaps he will be pushed back to the fifth dimension
Maxwell was the worst full-year QB I ever remember at MSU. Howard is not the worst goalie the Wings have had.
That comes with the job though. Wings fans expect playoff results and if you don't deliver, you'll be the first one to be blamed, even if it's not your fault
Thank you, Denicos.
Good to know you can't recognize a joke and that you have thin skin.

Get off my lawn.
FYI updated #'s through 5/18 Won't update til June, going to Europe for 2 weeks..
In the playoffs with Howard in net. If Wings score:
1, he's 0-5
2, he's 0-7
3, he's 5-4
4, he's 8-0
5+, he's 5-0
Clearly his fault that Detroit scored all of those goals in the 3rd.
Guess jimmy should have told the boys to stop at two to shut cope up
Just reporting facts
here's a fact...Jimmy Howard gave up 1 goal...his team finally allowed less than 30 shots and gave up less than a zilly turnovers
