Today wasn't our day. Plain and simple. Just forget it and move on, as much as it sucks. On to Buffalo.

I have no idea what you're talking about. We've been hard on the forecheck, and we dictated play for most of the game. There's a reason why Philly called a timeout in the 2nd. Not sure how you can say we're playing crappy after something like that.

Yes, there are times when we let up for a few minutes and it costs us, and that's why I said that one of our problems is not playing a full 60 minutes. Fundamentally, however, this team is able to control play when they want to, even against Boston or Philly.


I'm just saying it's not bad luck when you don't play a full 60 minutes.

Those Bastards won!

I miss when we were amazing.

Or at least didn't disappoint the fans every other game and the games in between.

Just a very predictable team right now.
They're the same team that started off losing to the Flyers 3-0 first game of the season. Nothing has changed. It won't change. This is them and I've accepted it. I just hope they can beat the Rangers a few times..who just won.

This day fvcking sucks. fvcking lame. Thanks Devils. fvcking fading quick, lovely.

This was one of the most frustrating games to watch this year. This was a big game.


I think this game was the worst I've seen in a long time, just a lack of urgency in the third, and everybody standing around, (or falling down), horrible passing etc etc

It's just bad luck, and it comes and goes. We outshot Boston 31-25 and are outshooting Philly 30-17. You shouldn't be losing those games 4-1. Pittsburgh lost 6 in a row in which they scored something like 8 goals total or something like that, and since then they've been scoring in bunches. It just so happened that we hit a scoring rut against the wrong teams at the wrong time. I don't think you can say we really played badly, except for some isolated pockets here and there.


yeah this is pretty much my assessment. i do think NJ is not getting enough chances off the rush against these teams, but that's why they're good - they don't give you those chances.

I'll say it right now: There's probably a 30% chance we make the playoffs this season. 6-1, 4-1, 5-1, 4-1. Playoff bound teams don't lose games by this much and this often.

Not the only comment on Foster that I've seen. Y'all are crazy. And wrong.

More like both teams were average but the Devils were worse. Once again our captain fails to show up in these type of games.

From Chere's twitter feed:
Clarkson: "I was going by and said something. I didn't say anything to the ref. I'm not sure what that (penalty) was about."

DeBoer on Clarkson: "We need him on the ice. That's something I'll discuss with him."

Oh let's point out that we had another awesome 3rd period too. This team is such a disappointment right now. They totally proved me wrong. I figured after that road trip they'd come back and really start playing like they want it, instead they get embarrassed by two of the top teams in the East. The sad thing is, they did out play these teams, and to still lose the way that they did really leads me to believe this team is in BIG trouble and certainly NOT heading in the right direction.

DeBoer: "You want to send a message. (It was) two teams ahead of us in the standings, an opportunity to really take a step. We didn't" - Yea..no sh!t Deboer.

Brodeur: "We’ve got to figure out something to get ourselves to play better against top teams.”

I'm worried for your health dude. After a tough loss, if it stresses you out this much, go for a nice walk to cool off. This doesn't sound healthy.

By the way...anyone know how Briere got a concussion today?

Kovalchuk on Devils' 31 shots: “All the shots were from the outside and no screen. I can play goal and save them. "

Sad, but true.

After the Boston game I really thought hedberg was going to start this game. Not because of how Marty played last game as I thought he was fine against Boston, but just a change of pace and maybe spark the team a bit.

Plus I feel like moose has a better record than Marty against teams that are ahead of us in the standings. Anyone have stats to prove me right or wrong on this?
