NHL Thoughts and Opinions 11/25/2010

• It has been a rough couple of games for Jimmy Howard. In his last 4 outings, his save percentage has dropped 11 points, down to .908. Maybe he’ll get a much needed game off.

• It was nice to see Antti Niemi get the “W” against the Blackhawks last night. Hopefully it’s the boost he needs to get his season on track.

• Tough luck for Jhonas Enroth. He has his best start of his young NHL career against a quality team like the Penguins, only to see his Sabres shutout in a 1-0 loss.

• It’s now 14 games and counting since the Islanders last win. As anticipated, firing Scott Gordon was not the answer. A roster full of AHL talent is the reason they are terrible.

• The Flyers are for real. Sergei Bobrovsky continues to impress and a deep lineup is too much for most teams to handle. Another dominant victory last night.

• What happened to Duncan Keith? Last season’s Norris Trophy defenseman added to his minus total last might and logged a little over 18 minutes, 4th among defensemen on Chicago.
