Jimmy made a nice return to the ice, stopping all seven penalty shots by the Capitals in the shootout.
The Wings led 3-2 but allowed the equalizer with seven seconds left. Alex Ovechkin’s slapshot sneaked past Howard.
In overtime, it stayed tied, forcing the extra shots. Patrick Eaves scored the game-winner.
It felt really good to get the win and stay on them after the tie. Great goaltending by Jimmy!
It’s crazy in a shootout, any goalie can attest – you’re alone on an island out there.
