GDT - Edmonton @ New Jersey, 7:00pm

141 posts in this topic

and when you're Elias and you miss the entire net on a pretty much open lane at the goal, you're gonna have problems no matter who's on your line

 

And don't forget about the missed breakaway.  He has to bury one of those.  He didn't look all that good last night.

You are lucky brother. If she has a sister or a friend, tell her to send them my way. :P

The rest of her family is still in Brazil! Just she and her parents moved over here a few years ago. Tough break ;)

Back to the game... Am I the only one who thought Brunner didn't play all that bad?

Brunner had a real nice rush where he owned Justin Schultz but then inexplicably passed the puck.  He was on the puck a fair amount last night but just didn't do much with it, ultimately.  That's a problem, I think - when playing with Elias and Zajac, Brunner shouldn't be the guy with the puck.

I hope we see more of that shot he has.

brunner really is just a streaky player.. i dont get the guy he goes a few games in a row being hot and then its like he goes on vacation for a while.. everyones inconsistency is whats killing us.

Granted I was sleepy and such, but what did Loktionov do to deserve coming off the top line? He got 6:36 with Jagr and Zubrus and that was it.

 

well he scored a goal, so, there was that.

 

elias/ lokti or jj/ just makes sense with brunner as a line; you can switch elias back and forth from center to wing.

 

more line shuffling from Debo just looks awkward.

Did we hit 3 posts?  Good god that means we've hit 6 posts in the past 2 games?  The Devils should be playing 3 bar.

I think they hit 4 in the Colorado game, so 7 in two games. I always say that if the objective of the game was to hit the posts and crossbar, we'd lead the league in scoring.

All the posts against Colorado were shots on the inside part of the post too.  UGH!  I really think they should keep track of post shots.

I have one gripe. There was one fan in the balcony section who kept doing Baumann's chant. He did it like 4 times throughout the game. Baumann's chant should be done once per game imo.

was it in 120?? There's a season ticket holder who is an absolute TROLL who would rather be a comedian or do every single generic chant instead being an intelligent hockey fan. He does the Baumann Chant 4-6 times a game. Section 120 is a zoo, idk why I still have season tickets there. He's also the guy who screams Crosby Watches after that god awful chant.

Yeah the Phailures scouts are definitely there to scout Edmonton. I heard they wanted a look at Edmonton's goalie tonight. :P

 

:giggle:

 

Yea though, obviously EDM-PHI discussions. The reason the Flyers came to us is because EDM doesn't exactly make their way over here every week.
