  1. Whaaaat? Oh retarded. I'll see if I can get it onto youtube.
  2. For those of you who have seen CBC's Hockey Night in Canada, you know that they always put together very cool intros to the games. My favourite (for whatever reason) is for Game 4 after that BASTARD Langenbrunner scored in OT in game 3. I showed this to a couple other Devils fans and they loved it. Ok, with my first try at ever capturing Streaming video, it worked. Uploaded to youtube...check it out here: Enjoy
  3. Woop! Stanley Cup here we come! The entire city here is going nuts, honking horns yelling...I'd hate to be a cop tonight
  4. Seriously. Wasn't Elias sick for the entire series? I mean what more do you want from a guy?
  5. Well, I've been hanging out on your boards here for the last 2 weeks and I must say my impression of Devils fans has completely changed. You guys have a very dedicated fanbase that I can see here and I have to say I'm very impressed. You support your team and show passion when you think changes should be made (but you don't call for trades every time you lose a game like Toronto fans) and you make well informed, classy and intelligent posts which is a breath of fresh air. Because of that I'll be checking this board from time to time. Intelligent discourse in hockey is VERY hard to come by and you have some great people on here. Props on a great season, -Step
  6. Devils confident they can come back Canadian Press 5/2/2007 11:13:26 PM OTTAWA (CP) - The New Jersey Devils will be the first to admit they've got a mountain to climb against the Ottawa Senators. However, they're also confident that if any team can come back from the 3-1 deficit they face in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series, it's them. "We don't have anything to lose right now," Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur said after New Jersey lost 3-2 Wednesday night at Scotiabank Place, leaving them on the brink of elimination heading into Game 5. "Nobody expects us to pull it off, especially against a team like them." New Jersey returns home to prepare for Saturday's game at Continental Airlines Arena, likely knowing that of 215 playoff series in which a team has fallen behind 3-1, only 20 have come back to win u a feat they'll try and pull off. "It's an uphill climb, but it's been done before," centre Scott Gomez said. "We have a lot of confidence in this room." The Devils have been in this situation six times in the past and once, in the 2000 Eastern Conference final against the Philadelphia Flyers, they've been able to rally. It's an experience they'll draw on to try and stay alive against a Senators team that stole home-ice advantage by winning the opening game of the series in New Jersey. Players like Brodeur and captain Patrik Elias played key roles in that comeback. "Obviously it's not an easy feat, but we've just got to start next game," said defenceman Colin White, who was also a member of the 2000 team that went on to win the Stanley Cup that year. "We can't change what's happened, we've just got to get refocused and just worry about the next game." In 2000, New Jersey had to win Game 5 at Philadelphia to stay alive. This time they have the advantage of playing at home. "That's the goal u just to get back to Ottawa," said Gomez, another veteran of the 2000 team. White said the Devils will "a lot of hard work and some luck, I guess," in order to stay alive. They put the effort in Wednesday night, but unfortunately didn't have much of the latter, especially when Dany Heatley scored from a sharp angle to snap a 1-1 tie in the second period and Mike Fisher scored the eventual winner on a harmless looking shot from the slot in the third. They'll also need to more production after managing just two goals in the past two games, with the power play partly to blame. The Devils went just 1-for-5 with the man advantage Wednesday and are a combined 1-for-10 in the past two games and 3-for-20 in the series. "Everyone knows what kind of hole we're in, we're down 3-1," said right-winger Brian Gionta, who had New Jersey's power-play marker. "We've got to win at home and come back here."
  7. Exit, I do see your point bro. We got shafted with an afternoon playoff game on a Saturday because NBC didn't want to spoil their glamorous weekend TV lineup. 7:30 is a more ideal start considering sh*tty commutes. (especially in the most densely populated state in the US) .
  8. What up Devils fans? Brand new here on your forums and I thought I'd stop by and say hey. I've been reading through your forums and I have to say it's very cool to see how dedicated the fan base is down there. In Ottawa, we obviously only hear about how Jersey attendance is lacking and how the trap is boring, but growing up in in the 90's (28 yrs old now) I always thought the Jersey fans were crazy, especially in the playoffs. We used to have fans drive up from Trenton and Little Silver to watch Devils games in Ottawa - always thought that was cool. As for the trap, Ottawa used to implement that system and it worked great for us. It's a defensive style that's exceptionally difficult to pull off effectively and Jersey's always great at it. Good game last night, looking forward to game 2. Still scared sh*tless that Brodeur had his worst game in years and we still only won by one goal Anyway, that's my piece. Good luck (not too much) in game 2 -Step
