Yep - the PP looked completely different with Gelinas.

 

It wasn't just when Gelinas was on the ice though.  The team played well without him on the ice.

In the games where he's seen more shots he's done well, the games with fewer shots he hasn't.  Plus he pitched a shutout, that always helps the SV%.

 

Part of what impressed me about last night was how the power play looked - they get that kind of power play and the goaltending improves, they're going to start peeling off Ws.

 

That's why I mentioned him being uneven.  His individual game save%s have kind of been all over the place:  .857, .906, .941, 1.000, .870, .905.  Sure, if you want to take the shutout out, his season % is only .901.  Not saying he's been great (and those two goals were awful yesterday), but my only point was, even with uneven play, the overall numbers, while misleading, are still at least respectable.

to my eyes the pp has steadily improved over the past 4 games or so, and it seems they biggest reason for that is jagr has really taken the reins. Perhaps it just took a few games for everyone to follow his lead.

how many more games is it going to take to start winning and winning consecutively.. i dont really get it, most games this team looks pretty dominant and they look lke the better team last night for example.. but its like they just cant finish or they blow a big lead or one mistake and thats the game.. last night i think it was on cory. He came out of the net to try to play the puck on the first goal and got himself caught. couldve been atleast a 2-1 W for nj last night if that didnt happen.

it is very frustrating. We were the better team last night, and the same thing goes for the sens flames and oil games. I would even say we were better than Columbus.

It just seems something else goes wrong every night. We never fire on all cylinders. It would be a lot easier to swallow these losses if the same problems keep causing them, but one night the defense is atrocious, the next they're awesome and the goalie stinks. And the next game we can't score.

were undefeated at home yah! nah?

 

i think this team is built for the PO minus that go to lead scorer/ line

 

by that i mean this team steps up to big games; matches opponents play

 

so i look forward to the Bruins game.

Was anyone else there last night near section 4? I was in section 3 and somewhere during the third period some guy was being escorted out by a bunch of security. Didn't see any fight happen, all we see is some guy in a devils jersey looking confused holding up his ticket to the ushers and being escorted out, then some usher comes down to where his row was and sits on the stairs for a while.

Nope but saw there was almost a fight after the game outside the Lafayette/Mulbury entrance.

it will probably be fayne. I am a deboer supporter and am confident that unless gelinas craps the bed tomorrow there is no way Pete can sit him.

There are now ushers sitting in the middle of the stairs in the following sections:

1/2, 3/4, 6/7, 9/10, 12/13, 14/15, 17/18, 20/21

It used to just be the lounge sections at the bottom of the railing.

i wonder why they did that.. its certainly not to help people find their seats im sure they couldnt give much of a crap about that, probably more so to make sure people arent moving down to better seats then what they have i bet

This team will start firing on all cylinders eventually.

You're not fooling anyone with that optimism. We all know damn well this is the team were going to see all year.

Did anyone pick up the voucher for 2 free tickets to an upcoming game last night?  I got one because I donated at least $10 to the Hockey Fights Cancer charity from the Devils Dancers when you walked in.  Pretty sweet.

Do you get free tickets if you donate to the "Devils Fight Losing" charity?
