Jimmy Howard On His First Playoff Appearance

from Larry Mahoney of the Bangor Daily News,

When asked what he learned from playing in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time, he responded “What didn’t I learn?

“I learned how tough it really is,” said Howard, who will return to his home on Green Lake in Dedham with his wife Rachel (Miller) next month. “You’re playing every other night at a highly competitive level. Your body is killing you. But you find a way to block it out. You have to be men-tally tough. I learned how mentally tough I can be.”

In assessing his performance, he said, “For the most part, I did a pretty good job. There were some games I wish I could have back, especially that third game and the third goal.”
