Is Zidlicky the best trade deadline (or there abouts) pickup in devs history? We've had some big ones, but zidlicky has been absolutely huge.

Devils win a weird one to pull even with the Rangers in Eastern Conference final

The door was stuck. Unbelievable. Despite the stuff that always happens in the din and dim of Madison Square Garden, the World's Most Famous Arena for profane fans and bad lighting, this was weird.


Not that Tortorella would talk about it. "No" was all the caustic, condescending coach would say when asked if he would talk about his decision. It was another short, silly news conference. Apparently he feels everyone is accountable but him.

I guess this guy is not a ranger fan

oh well. sens and caps fans were happy after game 2, so not worried. They'll split the next two, and the Rangers will take 5 and 6.

If NJ keeps pressuring the NYR the way they have in the first two games, the Rangers will really show the effects of playing 14 games in the first two rounds, as well as the effects of taking all those pucks to the body.

According to your logic (by using the last round as a basis), there's as much a chance of a split as there is a chance that the Devils win the next 3 games straight?

From an offensive perspective, certainly. He's taken a little of the pressure off Kovy on the left point/half wall. However, defensively he's a liability. He chokes up the puck at the blue line a good amount of times per game, not to mention that he can't clear the puck (unless he takes a delay of game penalty...lol) out of the zone.

Better than Foster or Harrold though, I'll give you that.

Looks like goalie by committee didn't go well for you tonight Matteau. I guess your offensive superstars like Hagelin and Richards are going to have to step up.

of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain.

Devils spent so much time in the Rangers end that they were asking how the schools were and what the parking situation's like.

The Devils should start paying rent, looks like MSG could use a little more money for ice and stuff...

And Flyers fans were estatic after game 1 of our last series and said exactly the same thing after we beat them in game 2. We all know how that turned out.


Great effort for most of the game last night from the Devils. Every game in this series is going to be a nail biter. As Kovy said in his postgame interview, hopefully Clarkson gets 7 more GWG's this playoffs. Can't wait for Saturday.

Matteau clearly doesn't think the Devils can win the series, which is fine...I'm sure other Ranger fans feel the same. Letting us know that over and over again on a Devils website will either blow up in his face or give him serious bragging rights when this series ends. It's not my thing to go on opposing teams' websites to tell them my team is going to beat theirs, or to beat my chest if that happens, but to each their own.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
