Carter will be playing in the playoffs while the other 2 will not


Wouldn't be surprised if we go 7 D for a few games and sit Janssen or Boulton.

Edit: of course there's still a chance Zharkov can be pulled up - but that might be me living in denial about Pete's dislike of Zharky.

Seriously though, tonight was a great game from top to bottom. The offense was great, the defense was great, Marty was good when needed and special teams was AWESOME. Here is a fun little fact: we now have the #15 power play in the nhl. I bet if I told you this in December, you'd look at me like Im crazy. I was saying this in the chat, but I cant remember the last time I've felt this good about a Devils team. There's just so much skill and depth, and our coaching is top notch. Just gonna enjoy the ride and hopefully we can do some damage come April

I'm thinking the 4th line will be Carter Josefson Bernier when Zajac returns. Well hopefully he returns :pray:

I'm not being overly dramatic or exaggerating but the officiating this year has been the worst I've seen in my life. And it showed again tonight. Fortunately we got the win.

Just can't fathom it happening. He took a discount (reportedly the rags offered more) the first time around, I can't see him anywhere else.


Apparently the snag with the Rangers was that they wouldn't give him a NTC. Oh well, water under the bridge, he's here now, and though I think there were definitely times where he wondered if he made the right decision in staying, I think he's very much at peace here now.

[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.

Elias needs 17 pts in the season's final 13 GP to reach 900. He probably won't get there this season, but he has a terrific shot to finish with 1000+ for his career for sure...hope they all come as a Devil...

And Kovy is now down to a -3.

Speaking of fun team stats:

Goals per game - 2.68 (12th in the league)
Goals against per game - 2.55 (11th)
Power play - 17.2% (15th)
Penalty kill - 89.4% (t-1st)

Those numbers are all the more impressive when considering how brutal the Devils were in all categories (except PK) early in the year. Plus, the Devils actually have not one but two (!) players in the top 10 in points: Kovalchuk - 71 pts (t-5th) and Elias - 67 pts (t-8th).

Great win last night, kept our composure and made them pay! The more I watch the replay of the Rinaldo highstick on Carter, the more I am inclined to say that he did that high stick on purpose. In addition to the "kicking motion" after he highsticked him, I'm just at a loss for words.. what kind of parents spawn a kid like this?

Great win last night. What an unbelieveable week with impressive wins over the Rags, Isles, and Flyers, as well as a come from behind last minute thriller in the Dump on LI (where we never seem to play well). Team is firing on all cylinders right now.

It is kinda unsettling for me that Larsson sat. Not because he sat (I agree with DeBoer's decision) but the level of play since his injury. It just hasn't been there for him since he came back and wondering if he came back too soon.

Testament to team defense and Brodeur:

Since the start of March. 125 shots against with 117 saves, good for a .936 save%. With half of those goals coming in the Bruins game.

The Devils are 3-1-1 over that span.

Bobby Clark, thats who! glove wearing fa**ot

rinaldo the small punk was annoying me all game, which made this win all the sweeter

flyers have some problems back there behind their net. when our 4th line cycles you and pins you thats trouble LOL

our D is keeping the front of the crease clean for the most part now. (Tavares giroux being exceptions)

loved how patty was looking to get zach a goal on the PP

JJ is playing at a new level, but he needs to do that barbell-rope-broom stick exercise to build up the wrists and forearms. kid needs to finish

This has been an incredibly tough year for Larsson, on many levels...I think he's probably mentally and physically spent...easy to forget that he's basically a kid playing among men. His introduction into NHL life has been pretty rough. I'm sure there's a part of him that will be incredibly happy to put this year behind him.

That probably is a huge part of it as well.

Do you think he should sit now in favor of Tao or see if he can play through this? At this point I really do not know.
