It's looking like they playing the rely on goal tending game. Howard can get it done if not hung out to dry 40 out of the 60 minutes of the game, every game.
Not only that, but it looks like they are playing defensive/counter attack hockey. You wont get a lot of goals that way, but the forwards help the D, which need a lot of help. And in turn? Helps the goalie not have to make a highlight reel save every shot attempted on him.
The last 5-7 games, Babcock has done something different in the way the Wings play their game. Less goals. Defense by committee. And a huge reliance of goal tending. What's they have? 7 goals against in 7 games or something like that? Babcock and the team has done something different...We're basically this year's Preds (if Babcock decides to roll with the system changes the last 5-7 games).
Anyway. It's a different team. Different D, different system. Goal tending will make or break us this year. Babcock is jsut doing what he does..../shrug
