Marty looked slow. It's a good thing our new strategy is not to let the other team shoot. Hopefully he plays decent in game 7 :pray:

The thread's about what I expected it to be...a lot of criticisms, doom-and-gloom, some fans giving up even though the Devils never trailed. Such is life at njdevs.com. That being said, I can understand where it all comes from...this is not a team that inspires confidence right now...from Brodeur on out, it's so hard to tell what you're going to get from this group, almost from period to period. I couldn't begin to guess how Game 7 might go...it wouldn't surprise me if the Devils won, but it wouldn't surprise me if they found themselves down 3-0 halfway through the first period either. As a matter of fact, I don't think ANY Game 7 outcome would shock me at this point.

I had a feeling the Devils were going to pull it out last night after it got to be 2-2, though I have no idea why...last night had the look of a game that would have us all screaming "Good LORD how the fvck did they not win?!" by the time it ended, and when it went into OT, I was beyond nervous, but yet calm at the same time, strange as that may sound.

If they win Game 7, I'll admit that from then on, I think the Devils really are playing with house money.

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.

IIRC, Brodeur is now 13-21 in Playoff OTs.

Thankfully we won & have a chance in Game 7 to win this thing. It al depends on which of our teams shows up. Please don't drink the potion, Dr Jekyll !

Huge game, huge win. Now it's a best of 1. The Devils can absolutely win it. They need to play solid defense again, tighten up in their own zone (here's looking at Peter Harrold), and keep scoring. Just get more and more pucks on net, Clemmensen or Theodore it doesn't make a difference. They can absolutely win. Second round would be so sweet!

According to Sarah Kwak's gamer on SI.com, Bernier's goal last night was the fourth one this series scored by the fourth line. Considering that the fourth line scored all of, what, one goal (?) all regular season, that's pretty remarkable.

Can you imagine how it would have been if we used these guys on our 4th line from almost the start of the season instead of constantly starting either one or both of the Neanderthals that are currently sitting?

But it's not the 4th line of Janssen and Boulton doing it...
Bernier got 3rd star last night at the game... also, Stephen Gionta is showing great things in the playoffs for a 4th liner.

enough of the hybrid, its time for a big padded butterfly goalie with a fast glove. you shouldnt get eaten up by an on the ice wrister from the top of the circles, or even the slight redirect. you need to cover the ice surface

how many times has harrold made a sweet move behind the net, skates away, and then makes a horrible pass to fla? lol, patience son! still loving his quick play

if kovy clarkson and volch were anywhere near 100% this series wouldnt be close, but it is what it is

c'mon guys one more series

Anyone blaming Marty for the first goal needs to stop drinking paint thinner. That was a brutal redirection. He looked shaky last night for sure, but that first goal was just a bad bounce. Nothing more.

You're playing with house money ... until you're up big at the table then lose it all. Then it doesn't feel like house money anymore. :D

We're lucky Parise and Zajac aren't hospitalized with that flying leap he took at him :D

This team is definitely severely bipolar, I feel like game 7 is beyond predicting.

the only way we win this game is by not allowing another SHOT the rest of the game. I've never seen a sack o crap goalie as finished as brodeur is right now. I don't care how much he wants to come back next year. He is absolutely finished and is holding this team back. With a competent goalie we are ahead 3-2 in the series right now and 2-0 in the game, ready to close this out. Instead it's the opposite

The rest of the team hasn't been perfect, but marty is the main culprit. And he needs to go

Were you even watching the game, or just checking the save%? Without a pair of huge saves by Marty in the first period, this never even would have been a game. The first goal was a deflected shot, and the second was an unmarked man (unmarked because Parise and Kovie were tripped without calls in the Panthers' zone). I understand that Brodeur wasn't challenged much, but he made all of the saves that we needed, and mostly controlled rebounds while doing so.

I happily and regretfully eat all my negative words tonight folks. :cheers:
But still, they got lucky, they have to play with that urgency through periods 2 and 3 in Game 7.


Were we watching the same game? They didn't get lucky. They dominated that game. If anything, the puck bouncing in off of Poni on the first goal, and the complete blown call on the Kovy trip that directly led to the 2nd is more unlucky than anything else. They controlled the play all night long. They DESERVED that win.

Reading this thread made me laugh.
