from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
“Everyone goes through bouts like this through their career,” Howard said. “It’s frustrating when it keeps happening. You just got to find a way.”...
He continues working with goaltending coach Jim Bedard on and off the ice searching for answers.
“We’re just constantly trying to work on staying low in your crouch, getting your hands up and out, like I’ve always been.” Howard said. “Continue to hammer that home.
“We always do video. We look at the areas that have been going really well and also look at things we can do better.”
After Thursday’s game, Babcock noted his injury-depleted, offensively challenged club’s slim margin for error, which heightens the importance of strong goaltending.
“We’re not getting to four (goals), we’re getting to three, max,” Babcock said. “You got to keep them to two and under.”
Said Howard: “It’s not like I’m not working hard and not trying, it’s just that things didn’t go well,” Howard said. “It’s not like I was sitting there pointing fingers at other guys. I always take the blame when I know it’s on me.”

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
