Red Wings Vs. Predators, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 4: Jimmy Howard Gaffe Gives Nashville Easy Lead

What Jimmy Howard giveth, Jimmy Howard taketh away. The Detroit Red Wings goaltender has made 14 saves as of the midway point of the third period in Game 4 -- a small number, but that show just how much the Wings are dominating play -- but it took just one (huge) mistake by Howard to give Nashville a huge upper hand.

Just 3:11 after Jiri Hudler had tied the score at 1-1 in the third, Howard overplayed a puck to his right and ... well, that was a pretty awful mistake on his part. It left defenseman Kevin Klein a huge net at which to shoot, and Howard didn't even have time to try and make the save.

Klein is not a goal scorer. He had four goals all season. He now has two goals in two games. Very important playoff-sized goals, we might add.
