This team can finish 20 over, they still can't nut up in a big spot. It's looking like one and done again, oh joy :rolleyes:

That's 3 in a row in regulation. Ok. sh!t happens. But they best 'nut up' in Boston and start scoring some fvcking goals.

With the brutal schedule coming up & this losing streak, there's a better than average chance we could be back in the 7/8/9 spot by next week, trying to squeak into the playoffs.

I love how Zidlicky gave up entirely.


I noticed that too. Not just at the blue line, after the hook, and not picking up the player in the crease either.

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

Rangers won this game like vintage Devils teams did in the past. Defense and goaltending.

The Rangers are certainly amongst the top SC contenders. But as with those Devils teams they're just as likely to flame-out in the 1st or 2nd round when their offense totally dries up and their anemic power play is completely exposed.

Wow.....coupla really weak games for Zidlicky......


Seriously, that's what you got out of this game? Zidlicky was fine. The forwards failed to solve the Rangers defensive scheme all night. They tried too many cross ice passes and were too afraid to just drive to the net and get into the dirty areas. That means we were held to very few shots and the few chances we had, we once again looked like a team with nobody who can finish off a play. Very frustrating game. We need to get out of this rut by generating some offense. Some of it is puck luck, a lot of it is poor decision-making.

The refs didn't help either. Let the Rangers get away with tripping and interference all night long and then with all the rough stuff either called it in the Ranger's favor or even.

Can't wait till Manta comes back now that we're swooning :argh:

I know it's only two games but Zidlicky's proving who was right between him and the coach :rolleyes:

My approach, to an extent. Seems like just about every contending team has a few WTF games in a row now and then. Devils were 23-8-3 before this hiccup, so as much as we didn't want to believe it, they were probably due for a bit of a downturn.

What sucks is how much Lundqvist owns them, and just seems to embed himself into their heads just a little bit more...it's hard to watch.

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?

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.

Pretty amazing that in such a tight game, they can still end up with three chances directly in front of the net...and of course, not even technically get a shot off on any one of them. The Elias one was simply mind boggling.

Clarktard didn't help things either...Kovy was forced to double shift way too much, and after playing last night, it was obvious he was gased by the third.

Sub par at best.

Expecting to see Clarkson get a few games for his hit.

Peddle to the medal against Boston. Yet another huge game and huge opportunity to prove ourselves as playoff material in the NHL.

The Devils need to change their mindset against Lundqvist. Drive the net. Get the puck on net and stop trying to make the perfect play to beat him. Get in his kitchen a little, frustrate HIM. Turn the tables and get in his head by constantly having people driving his crease. I'm hoping they figure this out at some point relatively soon.

I was saying the exact thing tonight. Not to mention the Rangers defense collapses on set up plays and drop passes in front of the net. Kovy ripping the puck on net and Parise and Henrique camping waiting for the rebound is what needs to happen. It happened a few times which I think is what lead to one of the post shots.

Better than trying to trick him with one extra pass...they did a better job tricking themselves. You can see that they think it's going to take the perfect play to beat him.

Exactly, you can definitely tell. That's why I think before the next Ranger game it would be beneficial for someone to call for simplification of the approach to beating Lundqvist. Stop overthinking, stop trying to be perfect, just play hockey. Play a simple game and rattle this douchebag's cage a little. Loosen up, have fun.

Devils just didn't have that extra gear today. They weren't driving the net because they just... weren't. Not a good performance all around - Rangers play some good defense. The Rags are definitely boring as sh!t though - that was probably the worst game I've seen all year.

People marking down Boston as an auto-loss should look at how Boston's done since the All-Star Break. They're good, but not unbeatable.
