My thoughts on the Red Wings' 3-2 shootout win over Minnesota Saturday

Redemption for Jimmy Howard? Not really. It was one game, but he was a money goalie Saturday in the Red Wings' 3-2 shootout victory at Minnesota. It like Howard has been in the past, but not lately. Howard played well down the stretch of regulation and truly held his ground in the shootout for a refreshing change. The Wild have been playing excellent hockey and it was a desperately-needed two points on the road for the Red Wings.
But the Red Wings have had a few nice wins, and some good goaltending mixed in, with mostly subpar overall play and mediocre goaltending since coming back from an outstanding and long road trip that took up most of February. We'll see what Howard has to offer in his next star,t and Petr Mrazek Sunday vs. Washington. It's a quick turnaround against a very good team and a truly great player, the Capitals' Alexander Ovechkin.
