Jimmy Howard Knows He Must Be Better

11/22/2019 at 3:30pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

“I have to step up and make some saves for the guys, it’s as simple as that,” Howard said. “It’s frustrating. When you score four goals we expect to win. You can’t give up five goals. I have to find a way to make more saves for the guys.”

Thursday’s loss was just the latest in a rocky season for Howard. He is 2-9-1, with a 3.98 goals-against average and .883 save percentage. Howard’s last win was Oct. 29 against Edmonton – with the opening night victory against Nashville the only other victory.

Howard insists he has felt good in net, despite his poor statistics.

“Funny part is, I’ve felt great,” Howard said. “I’ve felt good every game. Felt comfortable in San Jose (last week, an overtime loss), felt comfortable again (Thursday). I just have to find a way to have pucks hit me.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
