Remember when the Caps were 7-0 to start the season? Neither do they.

25-27-5 since...they cannot keep it together for more than a few games...

I think Dale Hunter will be heading back to London in the not too distant future.

Rags/Bolts tied!


The Devils aren't catching the Rags, but I'm all for the Rangers losing games. Go Lightning!

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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?

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.

Nice to see the Devils have a great game like this after being on a 4 game winless streak. While they may not have played their best at times during that streak they really weren't getting any bounces/luck to go their way during it so it was night to see that reverse for them tonight.

This is why you don't panic. The teams trailing the Devils are going to lose games too. Devils now have two games-in-hand on the 7th and 8th place teams, and are 8 points up on the 9th-place Caps, with the same number of games played.

And the Lightning score!

Have a feeling Parise might have had some teeth knocked down his throat on that.


lol poor Zach...after losing some teeth in the playoffs in the Ranger series a couple years ago, he's on his way to a Dano-looking jaw :P

Gotta say I was super worried when Parise went to the locker room. When he came out for the 3rd it was more exciting than being up 5 goals.

He was 3-for-3 on his shots too. Great night for Zach.

Dammit, Rags score...3-3

I understand why some may get really worked up. When you are this passionate about a professional sports team there will be nights where you are doubtful. However you need to learn that this is what it is. Sports teams have their high seasons and their lower seasons. Yes there are people here that are over the top and I dont know what that is about. There are also people here that are overly optimistic. You have to find that perfect median.


People 'overly optomistic' around here are in short supply :lol:

I don't think anyone was being disrespectful calling out the people who were 'sure' we were going down the tubes. I don't think anyone is claiming things are hunky dorey just because we're in a solid position for the playoffs either.

Rangers really are having everything go their way this year. I officially predict that as soon as the playoffs start, they go cold and get swept in the first round.

Doubtful, but I'm all for it.

Wish the Devils could find a way to put four past Henrik, like the Lightning just did...maybe Tuesday...

For me, I just feel like my team deserves the benefit of the doubt in most situations.. I love this team, so why would I assume the worst around every corner.. If last seaso taught us anything, it's that the seaso is long and you will have many high and lows..

I would say that, if anything, my optimism also comes in part to wanting to combat the idiots who choose to view everything in a negative light.. Like the idiot who basically said he doesn't think we'll win the Cup so he's not bothering to care this season.. What total nonsense!! I could write a book on how ridiculous that is.. And where's that a$$hole tonight? Oh wait, he didn't watch because it was a meaningless win since he knows we wont win the Cup

Nice game - so much for the whole 'Devils probably will lose tonight', or that Neuvirth 'has our number'. Devils sure got some breaks, but I thought on the whole the coverage in the zone was pretty good. Larsson is slowly getting better, I think.

Now we just need Kovalchuk and Josefson to get some goals here.
