7-4-1 in the month from hell. All things considered, not bad. Looks like that 6th seed is the Devils' to lose.

Moose is on fire. That was a good win. Obviously you'd like to see more goals, but still that is a very well played game defensively.

Low scoring and Hedberg kept the Devils in this game. A mistake and it's a different game. Kovy looks hurt to me but he got his 400 goal and won this game.

I want Moose to start the Penguins game.

That's the best way to punish him :P

Besides, he's not starting two out of three games. Hopefully we'll see him once next week, but I think he'll only play once the week after with Marty getting the other seven.

I think you guys are misreading this. Moose is probably having the best season of his career because he is playing at a backup goalie pace. Its what suits him.

Moose deserves a start in the playoffs, screw the regular season.

Also, not thrilled with us only scoring 5 goals in 5 games.

That's not good at all and these lines need to be changed. Now.

I'll try to make this the last time I say this the rest of the regular season cuz I'm probably gonna sound like a stuck record: the officiating this season has been HORRIBLE. Countless obvious infractions are not called per game. Instead, it seems to be random calls from the refs.

With the way he's played, I definitely think DeBoer and Co. won't be that hesitant to go to him if things are not going well in the playoffs, especially if the Devils fall behind 2-0 in a series and Marty's not playing well. But Marty's obviously the guy going in, no questions asked.

Also, not thrilled with us only scoring 5 goals in 5 games.

Well, duh, no one's thrilled with that output.

Henrique has really disappeared...I barely notice him anymore. I think I give the current lines another game or two...Toronto is a good opponent to get it going against.

Important win with great D in front of moose. our back-checkers picked up some big rebounds in the slot.

Shutout again at even strength is not good, we need a scoring surge going in

it's like laughing at yourself to diffuse the joke. deboer should tell the media that their trap system is killing everyone this season every chance he gets, maybe the teams will expect trap when we skate past them.

How dare we attempt to prevent teams from carrying it into our zone! we should be fined by Gary Bettman AND Roger Goodell

btw: read some of the comments! too funny!

12 down, 5 to go. Not a bad showing thus far at all. If they win just one of these last five they're guaranteed to finish March at a minimum of .500, which I believe was your hope at the month's start.

And from here on out it actually isn't that bad. No more back-to-backs. They have two two-day breaks between games in these last two and a half weeks (whereas their last two-day break was three weeks ago). Of the eight remaining games, four are against teams out of the playoff picture, five are at home, and the farthest they have to travel is Detroit (with Pittsburgh and Carolina being the other remaining away games). As far as the brutality of the March schedule goes, the worst of it has passed ... on paper, at least.

"They like to trap it up and make it a difficult game. We just weren't able to get one past Hedberg," Senators forward Nick Foligno said.

Trappity trap trap trap

Heard it by everyone in the media here in Ottawa. This is clearly a stigma that will never ever go away.

This was a smart game by the Devils. A very tough back-to-back game where you badly need two points. You don't go running and gunning against a team coming off a few days off that are very fresh. They got the lead and played smart hockey. Good game plan. End of story.

Yeah, but just last year they were trapping a ton. Give it 5 years, let Lou and Brodeur leave, then see where we stand.

Sure, but it is simply dumped on the Devils. No one other than annoyed Devils fans have called what the Rangers do...trapping. No one mentions it when any team around the league plays that way. Haven't heard it once when talking about the Blues this season. And no one has ever had the Bruins and trap in the same sentence.

Just the way it is. I'm not that annoyed, but it did annoy me when some educated hockey people were saying that, "it's the same old boring Devils. They just don't play entertaining hockey to watch." People who have played the game should understand the situation coming off a very tough emotional game against your rivals 24 hours before and what kind of game you're going to play to get the job done.
