What's your excuse about Howard dominating and keeping Detroit in PO contention when Datsyuk, Lidstrom, Filppula, White, Ericsson, Franzen, Cleary, Helm, were out at the same time for a significant stretch and Zetterberg was injured and had to play on one knee because there were no centers to relieve him. Abdekader was the 2nd line center, Janik and Kindl were the second defense pairing...

Yet Howard was in the Vezina conversation while carrying the team on his back. I also remember the Grand Rapids Griffins grunted out a win against Quick and the Kings only because Howard was the best goalie on the ice and DOMINATED them. He allowed 1 goal on over 50 shots. Fluke? Nope, he was winning games like that every night during that stretch.

Here's a recap if you care:
