  1. GDT: Devils vs Stars 7:00 12/15

    The fort has been held down. 3 out of 4 points. 5 out of 6 this week. Huge 2 nights without the big guns. Tip of the cap to the boys. This team is in this. Now let's take advantage of the home games.

    Don't know who's in. We won't know the goalie till later, but I'm guessing it's Cory. However I, just hope they keep playing hard, keep creating chances. They can hang in there tonight. Points? Why not? 2 would be sweet. Hall being back would be sweet. Palmieri in tonight would be sweet. But if not, the rest of the team can hold the fort down for another game. It would be really nice if Zacha has a breakout game. Nice having a home game with meaning when the morning temps were in the teens in the great state of New Jersey.

    They are keeping pace in the division. This team is going to be in this race, that's the exciting thing. Only 9 regulation losses, fewest in the division by 2. Big homestand starts, take advantage of this part of the schedule. You have to admit that this season is turning out to be a blast. Important games with the weather turning into hockey weather. Good stuff.

    That's okay. Sucks you want the extra point. And they outplayed this team. But considering the players out, I'll take the road point. This team is going to be okay.

    huge point. Just huge. Good job boys. now finish.

    Let's go fellas. I think they withstand the absence of Hall tonight. Next man up mentality. " Hard and tight" hockey. Schneids is going to carry this team till the injured get back. Let's get 2 points.
  7. GDT - Devils vs Kings 12/12/17

    This. I would play Schneider every game until the break. The schedule sets up well for that. This week is the only back to back. And beyond that, coming off Xmas things set up into January as well. January is really a light month.

    Outstanding game to respond to the stretch of play that was going on. Hopefully, Taylor Hall news isn't awful. But whatever it is the team is still getting Palms back shortly and Johannson back. 2 top 6 forwards coming back. So this team will have added weaponry. They can weather whatever the news is about Hall. This is how you keep things from going sideways. Take ownership of lousy play, and do something about it and not let it snowball. But again the challenge comes around similar to last week. Continue this type of hard play after a big win. Not just 1 period next game. Keep your down stretches to a minimum. I believe this team is maturing enough to realize this. And it's in a good position to take advantage of a home heavy schedule till the Year's end. Pavel Zacha can be a difference maker. His opportunity is here. However the news about Hall comes out, the team still has to play competitive and hard. The D still has to make good exits and the other forwards still have to do their thing. I think this year's team is up to these challenges.

    Ats the way you keep things on track. Good win, good opponent. Keep this train on the tracks, no prolonged losing streaks. And still the fewest losses in regulation in the division.
  10. GDT - Devils vs Kings 12/12/17

    This is where you get back on track. A red hot team coming in and the Devils being called out by their coach. To me, the calling out and the hard practice shows a major difference in this team and what is expected from this year's group. Hell, last year, Shero publicly called his team out after 7 straight disgraceful losses So after 2 straight, and really aside from a big win and performance in Columbus, the stretch of hockey since the Florida game has been not all that ..inspiring. Nip it in the bud and get back to being a hard team to play against, play with an identity, and clean up the awful giveaways. This team still has the fewest regulation losses in their division. Let's get a big start to a hopefully good stretch of home games heading to the holiday break.
  11. GDT: Devils @ Rags - 12/9, 7pm

    6 more games till the Xmas break. 53 games left in the season. This season was going to be about building and learning and staying in this. It's a shame that after the win in Columbus and despite a horrible 2nd period on Friday, they let weekend sort of slip away. Tied into the 3rd at home, you'd have liked points there. But that happens over 82 games, to every team. What can't happen is having the season slip away because of it. The Rangers started Lundqvist 2 straight nights because they said in pre-game quotes that Saturday was a big game. Columbus had a non-scheduled practice because of their performance on Tuesday and treated Friday as a big game. Now the Devils need to finish this stretch strong and treat Tuesday like a big game. . They have shown that they can play way better than this weekend. Clean up the screw-ups and play hard. There is still a lot of season left. It's on the coaches and players to get this straightened out. They have 9 losses with no points. Does every team declare the world is coming to an end with each loss? The Isles have 10 losses. Columbus has 10 losses. This is still an improving, evolving team. And over the long haul of an 82 game season, teams lose games. I think they will have a good 6 games till the Holidays. I believe this group won't let things go sideways. They can clean this up.

    plenty of time. Come on. This is doable
  13. GDT: Devils @ Rags - 12/9, 7pm

    Screwups. Corsi shmorsi. The screwup for % the last 2 games is off the charts.
  14. GDT: Jackets @ Devils - 8 Dec - 7p

    So they split the home and home, They had their chances. Pick up 2 tomorrow and that's 4 out of 6. Keep it moving and clean up the mistakes.
  15. GDT: Jackets @ Devils - 8 Dec - 7p

    Turnover, and full leverage shots being snapped at the goalie. Too many bad passes, mistakes. Not on the goalie, unless you expect every save, and all goals are soft. But the type of turnovers that went in were on the skaters as well.
