Calm down. My response wasn't meant directly at you only, I just quoted your post as a starting point. Other people were saying stuff like "who cares that we didn't get the shutout, we need to protect our top players."


Lol I wasn't upset at you just a little confused about the shutout reference since you replied to my post.

Like I said I really don't care much or expect shutouts. We also do need to protect our top players. Praise could have gotten hurt there towards the end and we cannot afford that.

The four goals in that period was terrible and a major letdown, but this is a chronic problem showing its ugly head again. We did not lose thank god but it does feel like we are overall getting a little better. We did come back from behind in the third period the last two games.

Oh, and let's not forget: the Devils scored 6 goals today. 6.


Dammit I keep agreeing with you more and more. You are right this is an amazing thing for this team to score 6 goals and i don't know why more people are making a big deal out of that fact.

I don't like NJ's 3rd period play but it was one of those things. The refs put their whistles away and helped out the Flyers. The Devils were resting their best players. Then the Flyers put in 2 quick goals with the Devils' two top defensive D in the box and the game is close. Should NJ have gotten a few more shots? Sure. But I don't think protecting 4 goal leads is a priority of this team. Once it got to two, the Devils played a little better and probably allowed at most 2 or 3 scoring chances.


You're right, as usual. But it's just astounding that this team can make every win as frustrating as possible. It'd be nice to get an easy, dominant win once in a while. Obviously I wasn't expecting one going into Philly today, but after getting a 6-0 lead I was. Guess I should know better by now.

Want to also add that Kovy deserves credit for a great game, especially the fight. That's one of very few times where I will encourage a fight when we have a big lead. Can't allow the Flyers to take a cheap shot at Parise like that. He stepped up and made a point. Good for him. Well-deserved Gordie Howe hat trick.

I do feel however that a lot of that today was that our top players were on the bench more in the third as the flyers are known to take liberties on the top players of the opposing teams when they are being blown out. I'd rather the other team gets a few goals past us and we still win the game without any injuries. Hell even rinaldo tried to slew foot praise there.


Bingo.

It's no mystery that our depth is especially weak right now with the injuries up front.

Plus we had three of our best players in the box at once towards the end there.

And for all of the moaning that the Devils simply can't beat elite teams, we took down Philly and the Rangers this week and are even against both of them on the season.

I asked Kovalchuk if he ever had a Gordie Howe Hat Trick before. "First one," he said. Smiled and added, "First of many.

Posted this on HF and I'll post this here too... my thoughts on today's game.


Games like this just re-enforce why I hate the Flyers and their fans so much more than the Rangers. Their team is a bunch of classless cheap shot artists, their coach is a whiny little girl, and their fans are unbearable.

Really? You think a bad call in the middle of the first period and a 2-0 lead derailed the Flyers and ruined the game for them? Do you forget there's over 40 more minutes of hockey to be played PLEASE.

I don't even care that the Flyers came back and scored goals... I was more worried about our team getting back on the bus tonight without having any more injuries to deal with because of cheap shots by the Flyers. Simmonds throwing haymakers at Volchenkov, Hartnell cheap shotting Poni and a few of our other players, and Rinaldo... what a piece of crap. Flyer fans and players should be absolutely embarrassed at what went on today.

GREAT game by the Devils, I'm loving Poni and Bernier on the third line. Our star players were our star players.... game of the year for Kovalchuk too... now let's get some healthy bodies back and take it to the Pens tomorrow!

Great job guys!

The refs really let it get out of hand. The fact the Devils didn't end up with a powerplay after the slewfoot scrum was a complete sham. Let the Flyers cheap shot their way back into it. But they have a game tomorrow hopefully they keep it up.

Not too mention we had 2 of our shutdown D in the box with one of our biggest offensive threats in the box.

Who did that leave on the ice for that time as far as D goes? Fayne, Foster, Tao? Who am I forgetting?
