Osgood Makes Howard An NHL Goalie

from Craig Custance of The Sporting News,

After the Carolina win, Howard was unlacing his skates while trying to explain the importance of the bounce-back game. How was an inexperienced NHL goalie able to shake off a rough start so easily?

He stopped messing with the skates and pointed to the veteran to his right who was peeling off mostly dry hockey gear.
There was the answer: Chris Osgood. The reason Howard is succeeding is because of Osgood.

“I’m just trying to stay in the moment and he’s taught me how to do that. He’s one of the best in the league at that,” Howard told Sporting News. “He knows how to let things roll off his back and just continue to push forward.”...

According to Babcock, Howard will start again Saturday in Dallas. Following the Carolina game, he wasn’t ruling out another Howard start on Sunday….

“The way the league works, the guy who is playing good gets to play,” Babcock explained.
