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 because 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.


Well, if every game is a must win from here on out, I'm going to be bold and predict we don't win every single game and thereby miss the playoffs. Posted Image

I'm going to bring an umbrella to the Rock tonight, incase the sky starts falling at any point.

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.


I feel like you're taking the wrong approach to this whole losing-a-game thing. If you're going to take every single loss and start counting "points left on the ice" you'll probably drive yourself mad. The Bruins beat us fair and square in their HOME ARENA, we didn't LEAVE anything on the ice. It was a hard fought game, and someone had to win. And like you already pointed out, you can't denounce Hedberg for letting in 1 goal when he kept out however many others. This is why they play the game. Don't nit pick every little thing so much.

That's just the thing...it's scary but true. They need to at least score a point in every game they play. Obviously that's not going to happen, but they can't afford to lose two in a row in regulation any time soon.

And I'd bring tissues over an umbrella. If the game is anything like the last time they played there will be a lot of sad people there tonight.

Haha true. I'm completely stressed out over it.

In my opinion they should have won the last game they played against them. They were up in the game and I think they had another 3rd period break down if I recall. Almost a mirror image of what happened in Ottawa. The puck gets dropped in the 3rd and a break away leads to a goal a minute or two in. It's ridiculous.

Nah, I'm just going to bring myself, my Jersey, and a good attitude because this is probably the last time I'll see them all year, and they've won 3 straight at home which gives me no reason to believe they won't win again. We've dealt without AV for stretches during the season and Zajac for almost all of 2011. We will improvise, adapt, overcome, and win.

If not, then quote me afterwards and bash away. But I have confidence.

Na I don't want to bash. I hope they win and hope you're 4-0 this season. My record is pretty crappy at the Rock. Although the only game I went to all year was a W. Unfortunately it was in Philly. I'm thinking about getting tickets to the rematch on the 21st. :boogie:

Considering he lost all 3 of his starts against them last year he's totally due!

Why do so many people seem to be freaking out about an overtime loss to Ottawa? It's 1 point. Yeah we should have won, but we didn't even fully lose.

A) It's a forum. Things tend to get over-amplified on forums (and newsgroups, chats, email exchanges, etc...)

B) It was the most recent game.

C) We should have won. It was frustrating to see that game, and pretty much everyone was able to watch it as well (because of the date), so...

I'm not liking this matchup from a Devils perspective, Zajac has been pretty bad since coming back but he is still better then the trickle effect that will occur without him in the linup. Volchenkov is less of an issue as long as Taormina is paired without anyone not named Foster.
