Lolwut. Kovy was all over the ice tonight.



Im not going to turn into a Kovy hater, I just got super frustrated between him and Zach tonight. At this point in the season, not a single player can afford to make mistakes. Especially in the shoot out.

Think maybe some people need to adjust their expectations a bit. Kovy is 80% in the SO this year. I don't have any stats at hand, but I would guess that's pretty much league leading for anyone with more then 5 shots. Parise has missed like 4-5 in a row though?

you do realize Kovy had 2 assists tonight right? Despite the fact that he missed many chances, no one should be uttering the words that they are frustrated with Kovy and Zach. THey are both on a tear and the Devils have 11 of 12 points. Don't act like we need to win every game. A post like that makes you seem like a newbie to the sport.

Kovalchuck missing an open net proved costly in the end. The goal the Blues scored was clearly a high stick and there's no doubt in my mind Toronto knows what kind of calls weve been getting during the win streak. The fact it was called a goal on the ice alone was just sad. I can't complain too much though. Points in 7 straight and we just played a crazy stretch of games. All that, plus I think we out played a really good Blues team who scored 3 garbage goals. Let's just hope we can come right back with a win against Florida. That would be huge imo in order to restore a bit of confidence.
Oh and Ps we just faced 3 of the best goal tenders in 2 nights of hockey. Elliot is pretty sick right now.

Kovy was solid at both ends of the ice. Breaking up passes, lifting sticks in the defensive zone, yeah he missed a few open looks but look at the 3rd period, how many chances did they squander, including the Zubrus cross crease pass to Sykora who was WIDE open on the far post and completely wiffed on the gaping net as Elliott didn't get over to cover it.

Meh Clarkson would kill any cycle that Poni/JJ get, but true, Clarky cant play on the 4th

Parise-Henrique-Kovy
Zubrus-Elias-Sykora
Poni-JJ-Clarkson
Boulton-Carter/Mills-Bernier



Can't separate Poni and Bernier right now. No way. I honestly wouldn't mess with anything right now. I'll sacrifice Sykora getting points for what this 'team' is doing right now. They look fine. No reason to fix something if it isn't broken. If we go a few games only scoring 1 goal..then yea, switch it up.

In the end, I don't see Henrique Or Elias being on either line as making a big difference. Both will succeed with either. To me, you might as well leave Elias up top for now as they are so hot.

They talked about this on the post-game as I was getting out of Newark. Halak and Elliott are ranked #1 and #4.

Florida just had a pretty solid win over LA so we need to bring our A-Game

well Zach should stick with his fake shot to backhand to forehand... even if the goalie knows hes going for that when its done well its unstoppable... especially if he could lift the puck



Parise needs to pick up more speed, thats all..but if he hasn't changed his style yet he's probably never going to. He'll be fine though.

Wow. Quick got pulled in that game.
I agree. It's going to be a tough game but honestly we are going to be saying "tonight will be a tough game" for the rest of the season. The Devils schedule is absolutely ridiculous.

So yeah, not terribly upset about this loss. Can't win em all.

Although I will say, Zach needs to get it going in the shootouts. He used to be money, now he's missed, what, 4 or 5 in a row?

On to the next one

Meh, can't win 'em all. Glad to at least get a point out of that one. On an unrelated note, every single time the JJ/Cam/Boulton line was out there, all I could think of was Dean Portman, Fulton Reed, and Kenny Wu in Mighty Ducks 2. Josefson is like the little bash brother haha.

Uh, yeah, he backed up Hedberg tonight so Marty could rest his sore right ankle.

According to TG, Marty should be ready to play Saturday.

You're not going to get perfection or flawless execution every single night. Doesn't happen with ANY team. This team is 19-7-3 in their last 29 games (5-0-2 in their last 7)...all things considered, that is terrific...if they played at that pace all season, that would give them 116 points. And they've had tough games on the schedule over that time.

I think we can cut these guys some slack.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Everyone is getting spoiled around here...we got sent to OT off a crappy goal from the Blues and our stars choked in the shootout. It is gonna happen over the course of the season. Let's take our one point and move on.

Except for the Montreal team, I would be thrilled if I was told they are 5-0-1 after the all star break when the Devils had to face the Rags (2), Philly, Pitt and STL. Yes, this team blew the lead and lost in the SH, which is our biggest strength. But overall, this team exceeds my expectation in the last six games.

I'm just going to say, that only players like Kovy and Zach can make a cross ice pass like that, and take a pass like that and score. However, shootout was disappointing especially after that terrible high stick goal..

I'm also tempted to say put Elias back on the 2nd line, because Sykora just looks lost without 26. Aside from that really nice pass up the boards leading to a goal, he's invisible. However, our 3rd line is really looking nasty with Poni-Henrique-Bernier.
