Jimmy Howard has been outstanding for the Detroit Red Wings this season. Even when they went on an embarrassing six-game losing streak, Howard was giving them a chance to win every night.
With just a 1.88 GAA and a .929 SV%, Howard's stats are nothing short of amazing. Although his SV% is lower than the rest of the goaltenders listed, he makes up for it by having the most wins in the NHL with 15, and the fact that he started 17 games in a row should say a lot about his consistency and durability.
And until the Red Wings can find a new backup goalie or Ty Conklin can get his act together, the Wings will need Howard to play as well as he can, as much as he can.
