I don't know about how many, but I'd like the puck that pretty squarely hits his stick not to knock his stick through his legs and then let the puck follow. That bad goal doesn't mean he had a bad night, but it doesn't make it a good goal to have given up.


Like I said, I can't ask Hedberg to do much more than he did. Apparently he was supposed to have been perfect tonight.

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?

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.

One of their crap-hole fans shows disrespect for the game by throwing sh!t at our goaltender during the shootout attempt, and they get all pissed off at our players for lobbying for a re-do???!! I cannot believe that! What jerks! That makes me upset.

The Bruins missed a lot of opportunities to score also. We could have lost this one straight up. It was a good point tonight.

Gotta at least see what happens when Henrique comes back first. Might as well give Butler a shot too.

. I want to see Larsson in there too. A move frees up space to give him a regular spot. I trust Lou and DeBoer, so I'm not gonna sit there and bitch about it, but it would be nice to see him on the ice and out of the press box.

I can't expect Hedberg to do much better than he did. How many chances was he supposed to give his shooters to win the SO?


With our current lineup, Hedberg could have made fifteen saves and still not won the shootout. The options are really pathetic beyond Clarkson.

And getting on Hedberg for 'one' goal allowed in Boston is like Kyydax-Marty type grading :P

So saying he had a very good night is underselling him? Pointing out that 2 pucks that got by him weren't the greatest goals ever is unfair because he made some other good saves during the night? If the difference between perfect and very good was making that 1 save in the third period, then yes he should have been perfect instead of very good because that goal was not great.

Probably been said a few times, but shootouts aren't so fun anymore when you don't have one of the best shootout players the NHL has seen. Only part of the game I caught, so the only thing I can really comment on.


If you look at the last season and change then the Devils have the very best shootout player, I think.

Zach wasn't even Zach in the last two thirds of the season in the shootout. They also don't have Henrique, who's the only other Devil who took even one shot in the shootout last year aside from the first four guys that got picked. Hell, even Sykora probably would have been the fifth guy up tonight if he was here.

And wow just seeing that Rask takedown on Zajac, something should have been called on that. I don't know if that's even in the rulebook but it should be an automatic goal if you take down the shooter without getting a piece of the puck. He didn't even come close to getting puck there.

One shootout loss, not going to declare the Devils' days of dominating the shootout over just yet. But yeah, losing a guy who around 50% in shootouts in Zach hurts. That 1-2 punch of Kovy and Zach last season was absurd.

I wasn't getting on Hedberg. I was being honest about the goal he gave up. I'm sorry "very good" wasn't high enough praise in your opinion.

I don't think we should start panicking, the devils played a pretty solid game tonight. Had a lot of chances. Kovy is playing good, putting up shots, making nice plays on the PP and scoring once again in the SO. I don't think the problem is our players, the problem is that we don't score on our golden opportunities (carter , JJ in this game etc.) We just have to score on those opportunities and we'll be fine. The D and Moose looked great, it's only the offence that needs to score when they get the chance.

I gave it some thought today, and I know I might get crucified for saying it, but here goes.

Everyone was so eager to replace Zach this year through FA or trade, but really, at this point in the young season, we already have. His name is David Clarkson. Give this man some love everybody, he's leading us in goal scoring, and proved last post season he has the grit to score big, game winning goals. Look at his goals this year. All represent his style of play, but they've also been Parise-esque goals, getting in on net and jamming it home. As for Parise's attitude and hardwork, they were already in place due to great ownership and coaching.

We have a really good team, and it still isn't fully developed (I.e Henrique, Matteau situation, Larrson etc.) and we hardly sacrifice anything in net. A 1a, 1b situation. So in short, fvck Zach, we're the Devils..Arggggghh

Are you fvcking kidding me with this sh!t?! Yeah, Hedberg was just awful tonight. Un-fvcking-believable.


You and I were obviously watching different games because Moose was one of the reasons we were competitive in this game. It clearly wasn't our "outstanding offense".

Tallinder has proven that he is the odd man out. He was the main reason why Boston scored in the 3rd and made a lot of sloppy plays during the game. You mean to tell me that Tallinder is more of an asset to this New Jersey Devils team then the more aggressive Volchenkov? Please.

Package Tallinder and Tedenby with a pick for Setoguchi or Hemsky. Someone. Anyone.

Parise helped us win many many many shootouts since he came in the league. He had a tiny rough patch last year, but that's alright. He's been a guy that could shoot 45-55% a year and for a team that got themselves in a lot of shootouts, that was big.

And Kovalchuk has been money since last year after being dreadful before that. But you couldn't beat a 1-2 punch like that on top of having Marty in net.
