Hard to consider that a win honestly, we didn't deserve it at all.

(Hard or not.. i consider this as a win... at the end if we need these point to grab a better place in standing... nobody will remember that these points weren't sexy)

Yes. Of course... Points could be sexy. Ask " ! "

Two undeserved points, but I'm not turning them down.

5 regulation wins, 5 shootout wins, and 1 OT win. Everyone from VBK to Lou to DeBoer to the players should be thankful today that they have a winning record. Lots of luck involved with this 11-8-1 mark. Scary to think where they might be without their absurd penalty-killing prowess.

Marty's Herculean efforts last night brought his save% up to .900. Glad to see it.

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?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

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.

I think last night was the first time I ever saw Kovalchuk cycle. And it was only once. He's moving on up!

I can see why Kovalchuk has trouble on the cycle, it is hard to cycle on your offwing, you tend to want to use the point rather then keep it down low.

Which to me is just fine. I think shots and shot attempts per game by NJ defensemen at even strength are way down this year as compared to last. At least it feels that way.

They probably are. Fayne and Greene are at a shot a game while Larsson and Tallinder are on pace for 106 shots. When you have pluggers eating a lot of minutes the points won't get fed, they will keep the puck down low. Tedenby is probably the worst at keeping the puck low when he could feed the point and he has excellent skill.

do we keep zack and kovy together till travis gets back? they just seem to be pressing too much and forcing the puck to each other
if they dont product 3 even Strength goals in this isles series I'd break them up. 1+1=1.5 for these two
kovy, zach and patrik should be anchors on 3 solid lines

He hasn't been our best offensive player at all.


Obviously so far this season he hasn't. I was talking in a more general sense. Kovy is the most talented offensive player on this team.

He's not getting the support he needs to produce however. He's constantly in a playmaking role, and lately on the right wing. He needs to play LW and he needs playmaking talent on his line. He's a sniper type of player if there ever was one. If you're not gonna build your team around making your $100M sniper produce, then I don't see the point in bringing him here.

This comes down to discipline. We used to be a disciplined team. We need to get back to that.

Kovy isn't our best offensive player, he spends half his ice time standing in one spot or gliding down the ice.

This game should not have had to go into a shootout. How we let them shoot 36 shots is beyind me but ill take the points.

I definitely know what ur talkin about by saying parise and kovy force the puck to one another because it was easy to see in that pass from kovy in front of the net, interesting. Bring it tomorrow boys
