Wow fvck this game made me mad. Marty didn't deserve that loss. Our sh!tty D is back and our offense was invisible again.

Marty was on his sh!t tonight. It wasnt the offense nor the defense. They both were equally scrambled and flustered and flailing. We couldnt clear the zone from the first period.

We were lucky enough to get that one goal. It was kinda obvious that we were going to take this one from the drop of the puck.

Depressing.

I hope that this isnt the beginning of the rest of this sh!t season.

if that jam was against brodeur, the ref doesn't call it until it's in the net and it's a goal. i'm just sick of the double standards.

This. Howard never had full control of the puck. Kovy got his stick on the puck before Howard had his glove down thus it going into the net, but yet again....the whistle was blown early against the Devils and we end of getting the short end of the straw.

What else is new?

Like you said, if it were the other way around...it would have counted.

Does Lemaire realize how badly this team was outplayed the last 40 minutes? Why is he so optimistic?

intent to blow. live with it.

that wasn't very good other than Marty. will be good to see what happens afterwards, if they get it going again or just kinda fall apart.

Tedenby is going back to the press box, I think, especially if Lemaire and staff watch the tape of the game. there are a couple of times where he looked real bad, front and center on TV.

Detroit is a good team, and they are better than us right now. It showed. It was a decent performance with an excellent outing by Marty and a good penalty kill. If Fraser doesn't give up the puck like that we're tied, and if Kovalchuk's goal counted it is 2-1. Point is, it could have gone the other way and let's just learn from it and move on.

Because we've got a week-long break coming up and he doesn't want them dwelling on the negative till next Tuesday. God only knows it'll be back to doom and gloom around here now that the impossible scenarios are that much more unlikely now.

I was shocked they didn't blow the whistle on the Rolston goal with the way it tends to go up there :lol:

In terms of this season, the Devils aren't making the playoffs regardless of any win streaks we have put together or potentially will put together. The situations are as close to impossible as they can be without being mathematical facts. I can't imagine that the players are so stupid where Lemaire feigning optimism can really convince them that things will turn out well this season. The Devils have a better chance at being the worst team in the league than actually making the playoffs; the players can't be stupid enough to not realize this.

And about the Rolston goal, I'm not even trying to understand the ref's and how they call goal mouth scrambles anymore. They've been pulling calls out of their asses for a few years now.

intent to blow, blows. on the Rolston goal, they were lucky the ref saw the puck loose and didn't blow it dead. after that, the only outcomes were a goal or a penalty shot

Zetterberg could've scored a couple of more goals easy. Detroit is just a good team. No shame in losing to them.

We all kinda knew going into this game that it was going to be a battle to win. Detroit wanted this win as much as we did. They have had a rough few games.

The issue that needs to be on hand right now, rather then bitching about this loss, is whether or not the current style of play and the commitment and confidence that the Devils have had the past few games that were in our winning streak will continue or die out after this loss.

Scott Stevens would rip your head off for that comment.

We had a minor league defense tonight. Definitely missed Whitey.

We were badly outplayed for 40 minutes. The score shoulda been a lot worse. Marty was sharp and the Wings missed the net on a lot of good chances.

The kids pretty much all looked bad. Teddy got manhandled, Palmieri made some poor decisions, Zharkov was just OK.

Still, this is the first time since 1/8 that we didn't get at least one point. That was a damn fun run, and there's no reason they can't pick it right back up after the break.

Teddy: 6:20

:ph34r::blink:

teddy coughed a really bad one in the third, when i saw that i agreed with lemaire, kid needs more defensive responsibility to get a shot, he aint kovy yet.

Ya, that's two pretty poor games in a row from Tedenby. It wouldn't surprise me if he's really worn down and we only see flashes of good from him the whole rest of the season.
