i still can't believe we got that goal

hahaha me either. It was a good goal and the whistle shouldnt have been blown so quickly but I am surprised that a call actually went the Devils way. I thought for sure it wouldnt. I also felt that when Teddy Bear was brought down on the somewhat of a break away that he didnt even draw a penalty....It goes to show you that the refs really do one side sh!t quite often. "Oops, well now we need to make up to the Pens on that one."

Loved the "Delay of Game" penalty on Tallinder accidentally hitting a home run in the neutral zone as well. It's a stupid fvcking rule to begin with anyway.

Great win. Our first line was good, and i think the Elias line did a great job limiting Malkin. Marty came with his "A" game and even though they gave up 42 shots, I thought that the D was solid. Could we finally be heading in the right direction in the 3rd?

I gotta admit I was fuming at Marty after that Malkin goal but jeebus did he stand on his head afterwards. Amazing.

most of us were mad, lol, but he more than made up for it, were a good team when he's on his game, seems like that versteeg whiff really egnited a good thing here with this team. hope it continues

Oh, that reminds me, I really hate that dumb ass rule. It's not even about who draws it (the only reason I'm bringing it up in response to Tallinder's penalty tonight is because this reminded me), it's just a lame rule, and a lame way to get a power play.

If they just change it so that it's up to the refs on the ice then it'd be OK. It's usually pretty blatantly obvious when someone does it on purpose anyway, plus certain guys do and will have reputations for it. Refs are actually pretty decent with that sort of thing.

I'd rather not have that one be subjective, or be a penalty at all because it's so random. What it should be...is the same as icing (which more or less serves the same purpose anyway), you just don't get to change your lines if you throw the puck into the stands and the faceoff goes to your zone. That's provided a detterent to icing, coaches frequently have to use their timeout if a line gets caught on the ice and winds up icing the puck at the end of a long shift.

Yea, that'd be even better. I'm assuming that the league wants it to remain a penalty though, for whatever reason. :noclue:

Anyway, I just noticed that the Star-Ledger reported that Don Lever was scouting the game for the Blackhawks. Taking a quick look at Parise, or does anyone think there might be something else going on?

Well the Hawks don't play us or the Penguins for a very long time, so it's kinda interesting since none of the three teams are likely going to be outright sellers.

I think that the main reason it was reported was because it was Don Lever, but still.

It probably was nothing at all (and I agree that none of the three teams here are likely to move players back and forth), but it's still slightly curious.

Besides, it is a forum... gotta talk about something! :)

I agree with that.

I do find it funny that the nicest PP goal the Devils have scored in years was off a random scramble where no one seemed to be in the right spot, but boy was it a sweet goal.

Story of the season for the PP.

Nothing feels better than to have my frnds who are Pens fans texting me and making up excuses for why they lost. Its so pathetic and typical of that fanbas, I find it entertaining.

Oh yeah, Devils came out and did what they needed to do!

I don't think it's coincidence, devs seem to struggle with standing around on the weak side on their power play and no ring predictable. I do notice a greater emphasise on getting back to prevent shorties

Very good point, we were franticly trying to stay one step ahead of an overly aggressive pen kill, and it nullified our rote "Point to kovy one timer" we just moved it around really fast to the open man

That was a good observation, I still see that zigzag passing in my minds eye. There couldn't have been a better passing goal.

Absolutely. That was one hell of a beaut. I dont think the passes could have been any crisper or on spot.

I mean it's no mystery that this is exactly what our PP is designed for - good, crisp passes setting up a player for the one timer, redirect, or tap in..

And when it works like that it looks brilliant, but the problem still remains that it very rarely ends up working like that.. I mean how often are we able to get passes through the middle like that without a defender knocking it away with a stick? Our PP is still too stagnant and predictable, but yeah when it ends up working out it looks brilliant
