  1. The appropriate response to this is a short one - 1975.
  2. Can the Devils appeal to the NHL to play every game against the Flyers?
  3. The simple response to the comment in the first paragraph is to ask how many Stanley Cups the Queen has won with the Rangers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The tough thing about that 4 minute power play was that the Devils had it in the offensive zone for most of the power play, especially the first half of it, but couldn't get any good shots on goal despite that fact. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I don't know if anyone on here knows about the Sports Passport fan site, but my check-in at tonight's game is my 666th overall game check-in on the site. Highly appropriate it occurred at a Devils game I'd say. On a related note, there's a guy with a "Sick One" 666 Devils jersey a few rows in front of me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. A couple good scoring chances for Franco (aka Wood). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. RE: Tonight's attendance, I forgot to mention there were tickets for about $20 on Ticketmaster Exchange (excluding fees) 1-2 days ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. DC is a terrible sports market. The Wizards have drawn very poorly despite playing very well the last 2-3 months (and generally have drawn poorly the last few years). The Redskins always have plenty of empty seats at games. And there are always a large number of visiting team fans at Nationals home games when they play a Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, or Midwest team; in some cases (i.e. the visiting team is a good team) the visiting team fans can outnumber or come close to outnumbering the home team fans. Disclosure note - I bought a 2 game T-shirt pack direct from the Caps this past Monday for less than $100 and had no problem getting a single seat where I wanted for either game. (I'm also going to the Caps' game against Dallas this coming Monday.) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The Hall/Zajac/Palmieri line is so much better than the Devils' other lines a good chunk of the time it's not even funny. Hopefully that strong play can carry over at the start of the 2nd period. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Obviously still very early, but solid start for the Devils. BTW, I'm at the game. There are a solid number of other Devils fans at the visitors shoot twice end, as is usually the case in DC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. I agree with the bolded part. Schneider didn't play great, but I'm not sure I'd primarily blame him though because after the Devils went up 3-1 (which they accomplished by largely outplaying Montreal and controlling the game), the Canadiens asserted themselves/the Devils slacked off and Montreal overwhelmingly controlled play IMO until the end of the game (even though the fact the Devils had a couple really good scoring chances in the last 10 minutes of regulation). You can't blame Schneider for Montreal controlling the action after it got to 3-1.
  13. They eventually did in the late 1980s when they went through a similar process. It just takes time.
  14. Boy, did that game suck after the Devils went up 3-1. Crushing loss.
  15. The above sums up my thoughts as well. I was genuinely surprised that Schneider did not start the 3rd period. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
