Lets Go Boys!

As long as we dont go on powerplays we'll be fine! ;) maybe we should play short handed all of the time.

Lets Go Devils!

Devils were prepared for 'bumps in the road' with Travis Zajac injury

"General manager Lou Lamoriello claimed there is no reason for alarm."
But what do you expect him to say?

I don't know, I hope that this is just rest (seems like an odd game to pick for resting a player, but then again.... we do have back to back games against the Panthers and Penguins coming up in a couple of days). Just gotta wait and see what happens, I guess.

I don't see any reason to believe it's some sort of conspiracy or something. When you tear your achilles tendon obviously it's going to take you a while to be at 100%.

This. Plus he came back a few weeks before what they were expecting. Itll take him some time to get back to 110%. From his play and what I have seen I would say hes playing at about 85-90%.

In reality, he probably won't be at 100% until next season, when you figure how many games are played. But obviously Travis Zajac helps us in any capacity.

Yet people will still come on here to talk about how this game proves they were right that we have serious issues and are a mediocre team playing above itself lol

There's no need for "conspiracies" with the Devils. It's not a conspiracy when there's a proven track record.
Reminds me of the phrase "you're not paranoid if you're actually being watched".

That being said, I understand and appreciate what you're saying. My initial reaction was partiually driven by the fact that we're playing Boston tonight... I mean, Ottawa seems like a more obvious choice to have rested a guy against, sorta. Even better would have been an out of conference game. But, then I noticed that we've got back-to-back games against Florida and Pittsburgh Friday and Saturday before we go on the road, so... oh well. Hopefully he can play in one of those games this weekend (probably Pittsburgh).

Well, Travis Zajac's achilles tendon doesn't particularly care what day it is, what our strength of schedule is, or how important of a game it is. It just feels sore.

The first game against Boston, while a loss, was one of the most entertaining regular season games I've seen the Devils play. Here's hoping for more of the same along with two points for the good guys!

LET'S GO DEVILS!!!!!





(Anyone know if Doc has the call?)



I actually give the Devils a point left on the ice in that game. I know that they didn't actually make it to OT but that's one of the games I believe they should have came away with a point. Soft goal given up by Hedberg at the end of the game was the winning factor although the game could have been like 8-3 if it weren't for him so take the good with the bad I guess.

Looks like both Volchenkov and Zajac are out for this one

Great. :saddevil:

Not to worried about it. We will see how it goes. The Devils will either play 100% or not even show up tonight. There isnt an in-between.

Yea, this is why I was so insanely pissed off at the fact they lost to Ottawa the other night. It was MUST win. Just like how this game becomes a MUST win. Every game from here on out is a must win either way you look at it. The east is too close and the Devils have left too many points on the ice already. We're hanging on by a thread right now (8th in the east). Sucks. Just the other day were were a point out of 5th. We really screwed ourselves with the loss on Monday.
