Good win but most of all, Moose earned that shutout. So glad they resigned him this off-season.

No.


He's right. I've played this game since i was 8 (almost 30 years) and taking a guy down on a brekaway or letting him go in alone is a wash.

Actually, giving him a penalty shot is an advantage. He has no one chasing him, can relax with the puck and isn't facing the same high speed quick thinking pressure of full speed action.

Given a choice, i'd rather do what i can to not take him down and try to disrupt his attempt.

But the shooter cannot go after the rebound and he also needs to ensure the puck is moving (except Briere). If I am Kovy, I will take him down because Moose is good at stopping penalty shots.

THank Jeebus for the win. Only sucky thing is we're just keeping pace. Most of the teams we have to catch will probably win tonight.

How many more turnovers is Larsson afforded before he gets some pine time? This is getting a little silly.

He was sat for awhile after the first and AFAIK didn't play after the second one which led to the penalty shot.

Chances are the shooter won't get a rebound at full speed, real time game action.

The only way that happens is if the puck rebounds out to the side the shooter cuts to after the attmept or the shooter has so much time to slow the attmept down and bang home a rebound, if any. How many breakaways do you really see that clean that the shooter pics up his own rebound and gets or a shot off or scores?

It's all a game of chance. It's a quick descision when you're faced with it. The safe bet is to harass the shooter without drawing a call and the easy way is to haul him down. In this league with PS called every week it seems you know the league isn't going to have alot of tolerance for backchecking a shooter.

Kovalchuk looks great because they won.

Ain't the NHL's fault that the Devils don't know their a$$ from a hole in the ground.

Epic battle between terrible defense and terrible offense. Looks like the terrible offense was worse although the terrible team defense gave it a helluva shot in the 3rd. lol.

One more game before they can practice, thank god.

But sometimes, the trailer bangs home the rebound and yes, given the Devils are excellent on PK, maybe Kovy should just try to harass the shooter.

I met him at a devils game. He's an islanders fan first and also a devils fan. I think every hockey player he meets signs the jerseys. He told me his favorite one was an ex ranger who loved the jersey and was more than happy to sign it. I can't remember which player though, I wanna say zherdev

LOL, that's pretty funny

Yea. Of course Washington makes the Rangers look amazing. Good news though. Flyers and Rangers play tomorrow. One of em has to lose. Although I'm sure they'll both go to OT.

Bottom line this team needs to win tomorrow to complete the sweep of the bottom dwellers. 6 easy points should feel pretty nice after that horrific loss to Florida.

The Rangers always give Washington a time just like the Islanders do the Devils. It's games like that make me think Washington still isn't winning a Cup.

Boyle is now on 4th line? Well, they contributed on the scoresheet tonight which is more then i can say for the Devils 4th line night in and night out.

Islanders always troll the Devils. It's just a fact of life.

And Stereo, while I agree with what you're saying, you've gotta stop quoting his bullsh!t. I've put him on ignore (and you should too if he bugs you) but it doesn't do me any good when people quote his moronic posts


yeah sorry dude it wont happen again, ive finally put him on my ignore list too so an happy life is ahead of us my friend
