I mean, among current Devils, you've already got lots of guys who weren't even here for that first game last season - Henrique, Ponikarovsky, Sykora, Bernier, Carter, Josefson, Larsson, Fayne, Zidlicky. Team turnover is just too quick in the NHL for me to believe that there are goalies who do well against certain teams for any reason other than chance.
The Devils just come at Lunquivst completely wrong.
They are impatient against him and never create traffic. It's too easy for him.
IMO they need to start either just throwing pucks at the net at all times and create plays from behind the net aka the Clarkson goal from Parise in the previous game.
You have to make Lunquivst move and not always have his head in one position, like facing forward because he is ALWAYS going to stop those types of shots coming right at him.
Those types of shots are not a threat to him at all. I can't even remember the last time a Devils player just came in head on and slung a wrist shot past him. Maybe that game Kovalchuck scored on a breakaway?
