Per njdevils.com:

The Sharks have lost their last four trips to New Jersey since a 3-2 win on Nov. 14, 2000.

Make that five.

Love that Rolston point at us The Supporters when he came out for his star. That was an incredible win!! Great to the Rock packed tonight as well!!! I got my tix for Weds night!!

Kovy is a beast!! We came out way too flat though need a better effort against the Canes.

Didn't get to watch this game at all, unfortunately. On a scale of 1 to 10, how badly were we outplayed?

1 being not at all and 10 being smashed, we were a 2 or 3 at best. The Devils played a strong game tonight. They are a team now. They all know they can do it and have the potential to get to where they need to be. Its nice to see again.

They were interviewing Kovy after the game and he was trying to say something and they interupted him cutting him off mid sentence and he stuttered realizing this and they went to commercial. Hope this doesnt ruin his new found confidence.

noticed this, felt bad for him. He was very stoic in interviews (and in action) when he first got here but he seems to be warming since he got all that money :boogie: liked his shout out to the crowd

on that note i did see rolston point when he skated out and wondered if he was addressing the supporters. stoked that he was :)

Rolston does that every game that he comes out as one of the three stars. He must have family & friends in that section. It had nothing to do with the suporters.

Ithink rolston was pointing to his family. thats why he winks a lot. Its his second phase of happy, one being smiling too much when he screws up and three when he is all happy for scoring. I know he has a kid that plays locally in northern NJ cause i was at the Kids Hockey night last year. I was stuck with my girlfreind and her father with kids kicking my seat and never shutting up. One kept going "look at St, Loius, he never sits down at the bench" nad i found myself keep watching his stand there till i said "wait, watc hthe damn game". that was the game the lights went out and i told my girlfreinds dad that if they dont fix it in five minutes , they never will. We ended up staying there till they took the goals away an hour and a half later and then they announced it was over. Next day my dad died. Bad weekend. But on a positive we got refund tickets wehn they beat Toronto by scoring two or three goals with an empty net. Anyhow, happy for Rolston.

sorry, too much celebratory beer. My point was from above that the stupid kids and there dumb moms kept talking about rolstons kid and how he was one of the best in there league. God i couldnt stand those kids.

Btw, Hell is breaking loose in the Pens vs Isles game. lol.

I thought Bruins Canadiens was bad, this was off the freakin' hook. What thef'ing hell? 370+ minutes in penalties? Automatic 10 game suspensions?!?! That's some HATE right there, plain and simple.

Seriously though, there was a dramatic difference watching the Sharks as compared to the Toronto last night - this was a bona fide good team, a top tier team we played tonight. They got great pressure from their forwards throughout and while our defense bent a few times they never really cracked. The Devs played a fine game tonight; definitely one they can be proud of in way you can't get from beating the Sens or Laffs. I hope they enjoy their weekends :D

11 out. That in itself is a miracle from where this team was just a month ago. Keep it going boys!!!

It's now 12 (Atlanta as of this minute holds the 8 spot with 60 points), but it's no less miraculous. Devils hold a game in hand on them.

The only downer is that the 9-12 seeds all have anywhere from 1 to 3 games each in hand on the Devils. But just the fact that we can even talk about the playoffs without laughing or crying...actually talk about standings...that's more than I ever had any right to expect.

Kovy and Lemaire...whatever page they're on, I want it laminated and framed. It's a hell of a page.

Great game tonight. the crowd was really into it all game and very loud. Kovy is becoming clutch and true Kovalchuk. So IF Parise comes back do you take Kovy away from Zajac? Its obvious Travis and Kovy have developed very good chemistry. Moose kept us in the game for sure. Without his great game we lose 6-2. IMO...

Awesome win lets keep playing great!

There are still space cadet moments from Kovy but somehow LL has him drinking the Lou-aid and at least trying to adapt and grow. Its amazing that during the streak how different players have gotten hot ect. I am so happy that this team has managed to get me excited to watch then again and believe.

I think he'll still have them from time to time, but he's clearly becoming much more sound all-around. This wasn't one of his better games, yet he still found a way to get a couple of points, and scored on his one and only shot. I think he's up to 27 points in his last 31 GP...he keeps doing that, continues to improve the other parts of his game, and keeps the brainfarts to a minimum, I'll happily take it.

Woooooooooo great win! This needs to be posted again cause the whole crowd was great tonight...

Kovy on the post game show - "I don't think we got a lot of energy from the start but then the crowd keep us going and we appreciate that, we need their support"

Eh we were outplayed by a fair margin, particularly in the first period but I expected that with this being a seventh game in eleven days, and a third in fourth with the first two being OT games. The fact they won a game which was almost an automatic L on paper (especially against a Shark team almost as hot as us) tells you there might be a little magic in the air.

Still a long way to go though...and with four days off between games the deficit might go up a couple of points by Wednesday. All I ask is just keep getting to the next home game with a chance. We might not make the playoffs this year but in a sense we already have, these whole last couple weeks have had playoff intensity and hopefully that continues for a while.

More positive Kovy numbers:

I've done my share of pointing out Kovy's struggles earlier, so it's only fair to post how well he's been doing lately:

Kovy's numbers over this 12-1-2 run:

15 GP, 9 G, 8 A, 17 Pts, +8, 46 SOG

He's been a minus player in just two of these games, and has been held without a point in only four.

Terrific win. What a week. All without Marty.

I'm sure the bolded part has you wetting your pants, but in Marty's last 11 appearances, he's 8-1-1 with a 1.79 GAA and a .933 save%. Pretty damned good.
