Big game but not series-ending if we lose.. Get lots of shots on Hank and SWARM THESE MOFOs


I'd say it depends on how they lose...if they lose 4-3 but got a few past Lundqvist I'd feel a little better than if they got shut down again offensively (one could argue that the Devils will have wasted a game where they actually solved Lundqvist in such a situation, but I can't stress enough how important I think it is that the Devils simply get some pucks in the net against this guy). If they lose 2-0 or 4-1 or something like that, I think their confidence takes a big hit, especially because of who's in net. If it was a Bryzgalov-type, even after two games I think the Devils would still be OK confidence-wise.

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.

From TG:

Devils coach Pete DeBoer has reunited Zach Parise with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk on the top line and reverted to the line combinations he used in the Florida series.

Patrik Elias is centering Petr Sykora and Dainius Zubrus on the second line and Adam Henrique is centering Alexei Ponikarovsky and David Clarkson on the third line. The fourth line remains the same with Stephen Gionta centering Ryan Carter and Stephen Gionta.


I know Gionta has been good, but thats asking a bit much!!!

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

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.

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

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