What a great game. Clarkson played great and I agree with Napalm's assessment.... a real stinker. You can tell our coach has some brains so I'm sure he saw what we saw. I'd keep the Teddy, Clarkson, Henrique line together and I'd move Napalm down to the 2nd line. Bring up somebody else to play with Kovy and Zach. He was not helping that line at all.

Woke up to watch some of third period and was very pleasantly surprised...LA has to be thinking "How did we manage just one point and one goal in two games against these guys?!"

If they win just one out of the next two games, they split the trip and come home 5-3-1. I'd be thrilled with that.

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?

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.

The game was past my bedtime, but it's great to wake up to find out about such a great win! And would I be correct in assuming Moose stood on his head ... er ... antlers last night?

I found this exchange between Cangialosi and Chico quite puzzling...

CANGIALOSI: "Do you ever laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh...only to realize you have no idea why you started laughing in the first place?"
RESCH: "Story of my life, sister!"
[Cangialosi laughs maniacally for the next 16 minutes.]

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

THIS is the team we have all been waiting to see.

Exactly my thoughts. During preseason, when we were all looking forward to the new season with a new coach and all of the youngsters on the team, this was how we dreamed they would play.

That was a fantastic effort- I just wish I could've made it through the end of the 3rd period lol.

Me too. Even though I'm at work now, I'm not fully awake yet.

Same here, pleasantly surprised - as much about the shutout and margin as anything else - even if the Kings had no Doughty or Quick, the Devils needed a convincing win.

It wasn't just that they won 3-0. It was the way they played. They pursued the puck all night -- or at least for most of it -- constantly pushing it up ice. They were relentless at times. And they had four lines clicking. It was fun to watch.

I'm really hoping using Palmeiri on the top line is a rouse by Lou to use him as trade bait, make the other gms think he's really good but he sucks. Totally brings that top line down. And I'm so glad Greene is finally away from the slowmotion larsson and can actually make plays.

yeah i bet that's what they're wondering. they must agree with you that new jersey sucks, even though they've been clearly outchanced by them.

only got to see the first period, had to get up early for work. Nice to wake up seeing we won - with a shutout! Very nice way to start on the west coast.

All the goals from one line, nice!

Let's get another one in Phoenix

The team played so well. Henrique was fantastic. I think in the future he would look great centering Parise.

Kovalchuk was our worst player tonight. Missed several chances. Very hesistant to go below the circles in the offensive zone. Hes always retreating to the blue line, rather predictably. Zach gave him a couple gifts that he did not convert.

Don't put words in my mouth smartass. I never said that the Devils sucked...I said I thought it was a team in transition, and a team that will win close but lose by bigger margins (doesn't mean their record will be terrible, but would mean their goal differential would not be so good). I pointed out reasons for concern that dated back to last season (lack of scoring, etc.), and yeah, I thought they were a little lucky to be 3-1-1 in their first five games. It also doesn't help that they're a little shorthanded right now (not having Zajac)

I think the Kings view themselves as a strong team that's probably better (in their view) than the Devils...I'm sure they expected to come away with more than one point against them.

The problem is that the Devils are not a team in transition, but are actually pretty darn good. They've outchanced the Kings 32-15 in the head to head, so yeah, I'd say they're doing all right against that team at least.

The difference between 'team in transition' and playoff team are remarkably close. There will probably be between 15 and 20 teams within 10 points of one another.

The Devils will have a positive goal differential.
