You do know that Devil fans are so used to being in the playoffs that people save their money for the later rounds, right? Triumph

Total bunch of garbage excuses. Played at home against a tired Canucks team coming off a tough OT win against the Wings. I can say okay if we lose against a rested Canucks team, but C'mon, we played a tired Canucks team and proved we still aren't ready.


They got a nice bounce on the 2nd goal and Schneider played a great game. It sucks we lost but it wasnt a horrible game ir anything.

i thought the devils played good just didnt get the bounces. my only hope in this loss is they were so impressed by schnieder that they trade for him. Last stanely cup i drooled at both backup goalies and wished teh Devils would go after them, Tuuka Rask and this guy. Marty may be gone this year nad i would love to have schnieder. they should make a trade, at risk of being screamed at online, i think they should just trade Parise for schnieder and a few prospects. It becomes more and more obvivious through Parises body language and everything that hes just riding out his last year like me in high school. I could be wrong but I'd hate to not get anything for him if he bolts for some team (hopefully a western team).

A loss is a horrible game IMO. Like I said on the chat, you don't get points for moral victories.

I don't know why people are saying we are excusing the devils. The devils are still 9-2-1 since the all star break. Who here would trade that in for the records of most other teams since then? We didn't lose to some chump team, we lost to the Canucks. I don't care if they might have been tired from the game before they still are one of the best teams there is. Hell the devils used to win a lot of both games in back to backs in 2000-01 season from what I remember so everyone just calm down a bit. Schneider also played his ass off tonight.

We go back on Sunday and we will win that one and e 10-2-1 since the all star break and everyone will calm down

damn, a tough loss, i wanted that one so bad. it sucks to get this loss but i cant say we didn't play a hell of a game. we played em tough for sure. our D definitely had some collapses that game though, and they scored 2 goals on 16 shots, pretty weak on our part. we did almost double their shots on goals though, and that shows how intense we played for the majority of the game

for those of us who were looking at this game as a barameter on how we stand against the fast skating western leaders I think we faired pretty dam well(excluding the final score) we completely out-shot a tired vancouver team. so far only boston has made us look bad

and dumping foster takes a bit of the sting out

nice face plant into the boards by kesler too!

Well. That sucked. Devils just didn't get that many quality shots. I guess props to Schneider.
The Devils out played them. The crowd was actually pretty awesome and deserved to see a win but the Devils were just a step off and didn't take advantage of having a few days off.

Schneider was on top of his game, he played like he knew he had to steal this one and he did.
Devils, on the other hand, have gone cold as of late. Kovy hasn't scored in four games including tonight, Elias has a 6 game goal scoring drought, Parise/Henrique have had 1 goal in the last 6-7 games.
I think this loss was a combination of these two happening and it happens. Time for Kovy/Elias/Parise/Henrique to get back on the board and start scoring. Hopefully they rise to the occasion against TB/Rangers on Sun/Mon

Me, personally, I think Elias/Sykora aren't clicking with Clarkson. Clarkson's individual style of play and his inability to cycle seems to take the other guys out of the game. Clarkson is perfect for the bottom six pairing with his style of play as he will score regardless.

Parise-Henrique-Kovy: these guys need to find their own way and battle through it
Sykora-Elias-Zubrus: this line had great chemistry, it should be put back together
Poni-Josefson-Bernier: JJ's skill and confidence is picking up in his play and together with the wings should be able to create better scoring chances here and cycle the puck better in the O-zone, dont deny Zubrus, but i think Zubrus brings more value with Sykora and Elias.
Boulton-Carter-Clarkson: Clarkson can chew the puck as long as he wants here and bring an offensive touch to this line

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Did anyone see that dude take a spill while going up the escalator by the Lafayette tower? All I know is I heard some loud thumps and saw a lot of blood.. Not sayin he was drunk, but he was with a guy I know drinks a lot on the $10 like and he did somehow severely hurt himself on an escalator

This loss is all PDB's fault. Putting your number 1 goalie in net versus a team that's not in the conference is stupid. Win or lose Moose should have played. Based on his history, the last thing we need is Marty to get exhausted entering the playoffs. This is the typical mistake a coach who's never been the bench boss of a winning NHL team would make.

Except Sutter and Lemaire did the same thing. Is it 100% on the coach or is someone else calling the shots?

I was near there but no, didn't see it. I was too busy screaming "it's ok everyone the Rags lost to the Islanders in a S/O"

Even though this loss wasn't anywhere near Marty's fault...I agree and wouldn't have minded seeing Moose in net. Just something to switch it up. Change the setting and environment. Brodeur's track record vs. the Canucks is pretty bad I think.
