The Devils have three games in hand on Winnipeg. I wouldn't worry too much about them.


You actually have to win your games in hand.

This losing streak isn't the worst thing. I wouldn't say this is the same thing as past years. Still a ton of games to go. This is a small bump in the road.

The Devils played a bad 6-8 minutes tonight.

Really liked what I saw from the third line. Hope that one sticks.

To battle back after going down 2-0 in the first 10 mins, you know they aren't sulking about the last 3 games and they are battling hard

I'll take the point and let's kill the Caps

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.

They better snap out of it soon(tomorrow) because if they don't it'll snowball. The upcoming schedule is not pretty.

Yeah, this. The Devils are playing almost as well as they were during their winning streak, they're just not getting the bounces. Kovalchuk's shot has gone cold. The referees have stopped calling penalties.

Really liked the way the Devils played tonight besides the opening minutes they fought hard!
My question is, is it just me or does it seem like every goaltender that plays us seems to play the best game of their career! It has been very rare this year we catch a goalie who we get some soft ones on! I know it happens but it's very rare!
Let's crush the caps!!!!!!!!!! Kovy or Zach needs a hat trick!"


LET'S GO DEVILS !!!!!

I think there's an argument for both sides here.

- It's highly unlikely that the losing streak will continue, especially with 3 games against the Isles in the next 9 days.

However:

- We are now a .500 team when you take away the skills competition (25-25 in regulation/OT, 10-3 in shootouts). Those extra wins might be masking some real issues.

They probably won't win tomorrow, a rusty Moose or a tired Marty going against a suddenly hot, talented team in a fifth game in just over a week. If you want to panic by all means, you act like the teams chasing us are all going to get hot while we slump.

If this turns into the 2007 Mets then fine, you'll get your wish and there'll be more major changes. But until it gets to a point where we're two ahead of the eighth seed can we please stop overreacting to every little losing streak and assuming it'll snowball or saying they 'need' to win this one and that one when the other teams chasing us are the ones that need to win? The overreaction annoys me more than the losing.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03
