face it---we just don't have that Michael Jordan type of guy who comes up BIG in BIG moments. Lalime looked solid and Marty looked like a nervous rookie. Maybe things will calm down but I think we're gonna need some luck.

Damn, the Devs might have had their best period of the series and they're down 1-0. If they had only played this attacking style in Games 5 and 6 :rolleyes:

Marty - how sadly ironic the team's MVP all year but in the biggest game less than five minutes in he gives up a garbage goal to that piece of trash Arvedson.

Elias - @#$%^$^. Not only is he not scoring, not only is he passing to Gionta on 2-on-1's now he's STILL the team leader in PIM's.

Two more periods...if they keep playing the way they did in the first either they'll win or Lalime will have earned his stripes.

good period by the Devils, but man that goal Marty gave up was crap. We need to score early in the second or it may be time to dust off the golf clubs.

Gomez missed the net on that chance. Gotta put that in.

What I'm even more pissed about is Gomez getting LEVVVVVVVVVVVVELED from behind after he shot it and went right into the post.

But since the Sens did it, no call of course.

I think the Devs outplayed the Sens in that period. They were cycling and working behind the Sens cage very well.

Did that goal deflect off of White's stick by any chance?

Some thoughts:

- If Niewy doesn't come back, he should not have played. Noe the Devs are down a fwd.

- Brodeur needs to be better. He playes well, but, he has come up short against Richter, Roy, and even Hedberg in Games 7 before. After one period tonite, Lalime has simply been better.

- Next goal is huge. If Devs fall two behind, it's all over.

simple math is all that matters tonight.

We gotta push hard now cuz we know we need 2 at least.

If you had faith up to this point- then you gotta keep it going after seeing the 1st period.

Devils had a nice period, just wish the scoreboard reflected that. Devils are getting hooked and grabbed all over, hope teh game can get a little less so in the second.

I'm at work and can't watch. NHL game-tracker says that Madden was unsuccessful on a PS. Is that true, didn't see any mention of it in the thread?

I thought Lalime has been getting a little more jittery as the game went on. He seemed to drop the puck and over commit. Marty is flashing the glove, looks like he lost confidence in his pads.

BTW tade Gomer while he has some value

Beer#3:

First intermission....looks like we are looking for the right line combos. Gomer HAS to bury those opps. Sens are holding and obstucting all over the ice; we should really do the same if the refs aren't calling it. Overall not a good period for us. The announcers are full on the Sens bandwagon...they make it sould like Hossa owns Stevens.....how many goals does he have in the series???

Stevens has the best shot for the point on our team...he is the best Devils out there right now....great HIT!! ......we need some players to follow suit.

Great opps in that period....we need to start capitalizing.

NEVER GIVE UP.......NEVER LOSE FAITH!!

GO DEVILS!!!

Thanks for the push, NJDF. Still think they can come back quick but that period sure flew by. ESPN homers are making me sick...

Ok being up in Ottawa for game 5 I can tell you first hand. The fans are too loud and I truly believe have entirely too much control of the Refs and Linesman. They are Ottawas little puppets.
