The Devils PP could improve, but the point is they outplayed the Panthers handidly. The SOG stat is the quickest/easiest way to support what we saw with our own eyes.

It wasn't a perfect performance but if both teams repeat it on thursday the Devils should win without issue.

Holy sh!t, what a night at the Rock. I was hugging and high-fiving everyone in sight after the Zajac goal. I felt like I had 300 pounds lifted off of my chest when that puck went in. Wow. On to game 7.

THIS

seriously. always with the doom and gloom when we have a bad stretch. "uh oh, we're losing, it's Marty's fault, Zach's leaving, Kovy is a bum...etc" Who cares? We don't control the roster. We don't control the outcome but we can sure as sh!t control the support behind the team! True fans support their team, without pointing fingers, even when all is lost, because when we come through and do something amazing and it's those players who you bitched about all season, don't you feel like an ass?

THIS. IS. TEAM!

We also looked pretty bad on the PP most of the night - minus that goal. the 5 on 3 was horrid.

But i am thrilled with the win and hope we can do it in game 7

Hell of a sneaky goal by Zajac.

If the panthers score on the play/scrum before that it would have been on Kovalchuk for not getting back while Parise was skating back like a mad man to disrupt the 2-1...That would have been the absolute worst way for this season to end. For my sanity rooting for Kovalchuk going forward, for the talk on this board and for Parise's future as a hopefully long time captain. Seriously rewatch it, Kovalchuk does not appear in the zone until after the scrum is just about over in front of Marty...I was yelling "WHERE THE FVCK IS KOVY!" Then he made the slick pass to get it to Travis for the WINNER!! So frustrating, but such is the life of rooting for Kovy and as long as its a W it is well worth the angst... That being said SO FRIGGIN HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!

WIN GAME 7!!!

I think you mean Willis Reed lol.


yep, I realized that on the drive home.

I'm not saying I disagree with you, especially with the way they have played the last 5 games. However, if you can't win 2 straight against a mediocre team like Florida, then this team has no business moving on to the next round. It can be done. It will be done. Start strong tonight. 4-1 Devils!


so, i;ll stil be worried that it took so many shots for to squeeze three by clemmer & 2 easy ones get past # 30

What a maddening game. The fact that it was a tie game even though we dominated on shots certainly made things scary. Chico said a few times that the Devils just needed to keep plugging away. And for the most part, that's what they did. That's the main reason I wasn't down on the Devils. I didn't sense a defeatist attitude. They weren't brimming with confidence. But they weren't giving up either.

I wanted to post earlier in the game how much Kovy drives me nuts with his sloppy passes. Then he goes ahead and threads a beauty in OT. Go figure.

Someone mentioned Jeremy Roenick calling the Devils third period a farce. He might've had a point, I guess, but it still sounds a little harsh. ... What announcers called the game on the national broadcast?

I don't really care much about the soft goals allowed by the other goalie. Shouldn't have gone to OT because Brodeur should've stopped those. 2 goals on what...10 shots at the time??? Unacceptable. I don't care how much anyone loves Brodeur, you have to be BLIND to keep defending him.


it was shots 7 & 8 that they scored on. first 2 shots of period 2. i swear we drink kryptonite during the first intermission this year
