Jimmy Howard sticked aside only 21 shots in Detroit's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues on Wednesday night.

It's actually pretty amazing that Detroit has a 7-4-2 record on the year because Howard's performance has been roller coaster-esque. He's given up four goals in three of his last five starts; the other two starts he's allowed three, combined. The netminder has a 2.88 goals-against average and .901 save percentage on the year.
