Howard only does this a few times, he rarely steals games. All the goalies I listed can do that better than Howard.
You really have no clue about Howard/Detroit then. Howard is the biggest reason we made the playoffs three years ago. He had a bad sophomore year two years agor but he was in Vezina talks last year before injuries ruined his year. Last night, for example, Howard kept the wings in the game. Stars should've had a 4 or 5 goal lead going into the third. Howard generally doesn't struggle with consistency, Detroit's defense does though.
