Was there really any other result? It's disgusting, embarrassing and pathetic and they are going to be sitting home watching in April because of it.

Oh well.  I'm not too disappointed.  BTW, the Devils have to be leading the league in OT games.

So sad

 

What are we, roughly 1 for 30 as a team in the shootout this year?

 

Anyone on this board who has ever held a hockey stick before could do better than that....

OT games/shootouts and 1 goal wins/losses

 

Every Devils game is down to the wire

Or it's possible they could wind up playing in April due to not being behind after 60 minutes.

Yeah it's about confidence at this point.

Which is why I don't get why are two hottest goal scorers are on the bench in place of two guys that's haven't scored in nearly a month. But meh at least we got one point.

In what world, universe, fantasy, cartoon, hockey movie do you not use your leading goal scorer (arguably best shot on the team) in the shoot out?

Better question is why we use a guy who sucks at them, and even hates them (Jagr).

The reason they'll miss the playoffs is going to be because of the skills competition. It's leaving too many points on the table. It'll be a travesty especially in the glorious manner they're doing it,

I know you like to be the eternal optimist but could you please just take off the red blinders and devils pompoms for just a minute and look at reality?

Thats points on the table that the devils have given up and losing a few of these are ok but to be 0-8 and it's mid January it has a very good chance of biting them in the ass come April.

Greene and Fayne are just too good together. Greene gets a lot of love (as he should) but Fayne is one of those guys that quietly puts in a consistently solid game night in and night out.

Or they'll make the playoffs because they found a way to not walk away with nothing.

Yea, even if we were .500 in the shootout, and were 4-4....those 4 points are going to be the difference between a playoff spot in April, and a ticket to the golf course

I want Jagr to go

 

He has the moves, he will eventually score on this

 

I also agreed with the Boucher selection, being that he has our ONLY shootout goal all friggin year

 

RYDER should have shot instead of Clowe.  What the hell has he shown to be one of our first 3 shootout shooters?!?!?1?

Be honest. Do you understand how important it is that they are not only losing every SO and leaving precious points on the table, but also giving up points to teams in their own conference? You know it's going to bite them. You can't be throwing points away like this and not have it bite you. I'm not saying they should win every one, but damn, it's beyond embarrassing. It looks like they aren't even trying now. The coaches admit all this . The players admit it. They know. It seems like you're in denial and that 60 minutes is going to be the only way they get in. It won't be.

Shutouts suck but looking on the bright side... If Detroit loses tonight, we are two points out of the first wild card spot and three points out of second in the division. If Elias and Brunner get back soon and we can get on a run... there's no reason we can't make the playoffs.
