And yeahh-- the Marty haters can all go get run over by a truck for all I care. They've been saying the same "Mister Softee!" sh!t since 2003. Now that he's getting up there in age and not playing the way he used to, they all puff their chests because they "TOTES CALLED THAT YO"

if you are referring to me, i have never hated marty before this season. and when i did shrug him off it was this year when i said, "yo, he's not the same we can't rely on him every game"... you cannot disagree with that like come onnnnnnnn

"they can't beat this team dude" is pretty much justified by that Lundquist vs. Marty career record. its disgusting and repulsive to any Devils fan

We've had some sh!t seasons against them in recent years, yep, but that has nothing to do with this year's team.

If Foster's puck was half an inch to the left, the entire board is asking off work for the day of the Stanley Cup parade.

Let me ask you folks - if you could have picked this game or Niedernight to win - which one would you have?

EXACTLY


Nieds night was great, they fed from the emotion and took care of a gassed team on a cruel road trip.

You an't win all 82, and with this lineup you won't - nor should you expect "mistake free hockey" with this blue line.


Look at the Rangers blueline tonight. Anton Stralman, Stu Bickel (1st nhl game) and Tim Erixon. Half of the defense.

Really? Erixon, Bickel and Stralman? Yet, should the NYR have come in tonight and said "fvck it, we gotta expect mistakes and we can't win 'em all"?

Lundquist and the Rags get up for these games though. Marty and the Devils view them as nothing more than another team. I guess we're just too far removed from 1994. Well, unless you're a Rags fan then 1994 is all you talk about.

Very frustrating game, but that's how Rangers games are nowadays. We obviously outplayed them by quite a wide margin, but Lundqvist always brings his absolutely best game against us and Brodeur hasn't been able to keep up with him (I think Lundqvist is now 21-5 against Brodeur). Also Rangers are hot and when teams are hot, they get bounces and this game was no exception. Rangers got bounces going their way both to score goals and to prevent goals.

Unfortunately, the reality is that most nights we'll lose to the Rangers, and 90% of that reasoning is because of Lundqvist.

Clearly you didn't read what Sykora had to say about the rivalry in the NJ.com article yesterday.

ok so then will you agree that Marty did not show up as a great goalie tonight?


How many times have I said this? yes. Its just not the reason we lost.

Wait you think the Devils just view the Rangers as another team? You're living under a rock. And hopefully not the prudential center because Ranger fans might laugh in your face. Granted the Devils have more bragging rights than the Rangers do since the Devils have been in existence ...but we can seriously win 10 in a row ..play the Rangers and lose. It's happened before.

Changed my wallpaper from Patty Elias to TV on the Radio. That might have sunk us since I added the wallpaper after our last game.

I think the Devils got up but we didn't play well for a full 60...as usual.

Just wanted to take a moment and highlight a few of the worst offenders in the "stuff people say on this forum that piss everyone off" club. BS comments like these irritate me to no end. Let me clarify - I am disappointed in the way Brodeur played tonight. In fact, I was just talking about how we need to start Hedberg more. But there is no need to take this bad situation and turn it into a smug, self-serving remark like these. We all know that Brodeur is old and declining. Why are so many of you acting like you're some kind of hockey genius for "predicting" that he would have some bad games?

It's one thing to be frustrated that the team lost. Everybody on here is feeling that. It's another thing to "celebrate" that loss with posts like this. The team played well and lost. Marty wasn't great. These things happen. Take the loss and move on.


Please a post like this is only doing the opposite of the point you are trying to make.

Marty has been declining for some time and the queen has had his number for years. He simply cannot play in high pressure situations anymore and really never has done all that well in these type of games in recent years.

It is amazing the justifications the fanboys of Marty on here make to defend him. What he has don't in the past is the past. He simply cannot beat the rags anymore. He was terrible and I thought the rest of the team was at least solid tonight.

We played well for very close to 60 minutes. Close enough that it's not worth mentioning. The Rangers didn't win this game because we didn't play for 60 minutes. They won because of Lundqvist, Brodeur, and bounces.

Gotta disagree there. Bounces yes, Lundqvist yes. Broudeur could have been better? yes. But we did not play a full 60. We slugged along for major parts of the 2nd and third periods. We also made mistakes that we have been making all season - from giving up the lead again to handing the opposing team an odd man advantage goal. That does not equate to playing well.
