Almost feels like DeBoer and Co. are already in "uh-oh" mode. Hope this works out.



I agree....

I can see doing this MAYBE if we were down 0-2 in the series...

I do not see the benefit of this move

WE NEED TO WIN TONIGHT...

LET'S GO DEVILS!!!

We need to score, so Larson and the line changes are just to shake it up. Regardless we need 3 periods of pressure in their zone and we will get our goals and a win LGD!

Yeah, I don't get this. Unless they just want better D on the power play.

Man, could we use Tallinder.


Harrold is the only one of the two that plays the PP. That's the only real reason for the change, Larsson earned his spot in the lineup otherwise.

You might be right...except going down 2-0 would stink either way because I can't see us sweeping the home games here since it won't be a huge home-ice advantage. So at best, we'd probably have to win 5 & 7 at MSG.



While I too don't (and everyone doesn't) want to go down 2-0, The Devils have proven themselves a resilient bunch. It's been a recurring theme in a lot of series that home ice advantage hasn't meant much this year. Hell, we went 2 for 3 in Philly. We can handle MSG tonight (it's not a particularly loud or difficult building at all and we all know that), and if not, a couple thousand Rangers fans in our building won't rattle them. I think they're beyond that.

Im not overly worried about tonight, nor do I feel it is "must win". If the Rags hold their home ice tonight, then we have to win at home and if we cant do that, then we dont deserve to advance. 2-0 is not a killer by any stretch.

2-0 IS ABSOLUTELY A KILLER against Lundqvist. His career numbers against us are not dominant for no reason. We CANNOT consistently beat him. If we go down 0-2 in the series, we are not going to win 4 of the next 5 games, with 2 of them being at MSG. MUST WIN TONIGHT!

Funny.. I don't understand the Larsson move unless he feels Harrold will help out Volchekov defensively

I am actually concerned there is an injury to one of the forwards and we're using Harrold as the 6th defender and 5th RW.

Harrold in and Larsson out.

Lineup is pretty much back to what it was at game 1 against the Panthers.

nj.com


I guess we are looking to turn the puck over more or something?

I agree completely. Crash the net on the bubble boy goalie. Seriously, is there anybody else in the league who just slides from post to post without moving in any other direction as much as the queen?

Maybe Debo wants more speed on defense, that volch larrson pair is very slow.

The speed Harrold usually brings to the game is the speed of the opposing team heading towards our goal after he turns it over.

Maybe I am the only one who thought he played great in the first series? I thought he was solid defensively and helped the transition game. He is a very good skater.
