...there is no way in hell we survive another period like the second.

As I was saying....

Hasan: When it was 2-1 with 2 minutes to go, that's all I thought about... Carolina Game 2.

What a let down after this great game. Devils need to attack like crazy or this OT will not end well.

Well that fvckin blows. After we get every chance and don't score, the Sens get two chances and get a cheap one past Marty...with 25 secs left in the damn game to make it even worse.

Starting OT with a penalty. GREAT. :rant:

Sudden death for our chances in this series and maybe for the arena.

Usually I just read the posts here but I feel I need to say something

You can not start playing defense, you can't crawl back into the trench with 9 minutes remaining with only a one goal lead, esp. against OTT

It doesn't work in street hockey and it doesn't work in the NHL

but the devils are willing to do it every single game.

frustrating to watch

You're right Don, it was only a matter of time with the way Ottawa was pressing.

And asking the Devils to win another OT game might be too tall a task. Marty held on as long as he could.

Nice coverage in the middle of the ice - what a waste...

Not to complain, but that was the worst officiated penalty of the year. White's call was complete BS. Gomez and Gionta got hooked going to the net about 12 times, and then with 3 seconds left he calls a piece of sh!t on Gomez.

We should have won that game 4-2... We can't hit a barn tonight.

Marty looked awesome the last 2 periods. Let's not waste this! :evilcry:

Devils led shots 16-5 then Ottawa went on to lead 26-8 after that. Once the Devils started sititng back they lost control of the game.

Good job Devils, looks like this will end in the first 2:00 in OT, I can go out and drink.

I guess I spoke too soon saying the Devils weren't sitting back, that looked more like the Julien Devils towards the end :doh1:

And yes that was a chintsy penalty at the end, but you know what show some guts, kill off this penalty and win this @#$@%ing game. Otherwise this series IS over.

I'm trying to stay positive, but I just don't have a good feeling at all about OT. I can see Ottawa scoring on the pp. Oh well, Lets Go Devils!

Have a little faith. Marty's standing on his head.

Yes but when he does that he usually craps out in OT. It's when he's shaky in regulation like the Tampa series or the one 6-5 game against Toronto that he actually wins OT games :P

I am so pissed off right now. I was supposed to go to a party tonight but I can't leave now cuz I have to watch the rest of this game. I remember the last time I felt this way was Game 2 against the Canes. I don'tlike this.

Agreed. It will be a moment of truth in this upcoming OT period. If they want it enough, the Devils will win tonight.

why is brylin on the ice in a situation like that? parking cones would have been more useful

Why was Sarge and martin out there....it should've been Jamie and White/Matvichuk instead.

But whatever.

Time for OT. Let's go.

they dont deserve to win this game.

every time they had a chance to go up 3-1, they overpassed the puck.

Because they can't break up the set lines for a second :P

Lou (or Johnny Mac?) made the same mistake last year, Marty even alluded to it in his book when he said he would have put Jamie on the ice instead of Gionta for size against the Canes, I think he also said he would have had a bigger defenseman than Martin out there.

Well the team killed the penalty for Giontas stupidity would be nice for him to end this for us

Glad to see I'm home just in time to catch the game on radio (being a draw through three). Looks like I missed a hell of a regulation. The thing about OT games is that often flukey goals win it. A lot can be decided on a trickler that sneaks in the net. S***ty way to decide the direction a series will take, but it is what it is.
