Lmao, I love all of the scratch Kovalchuk garbage. And play who? Janssen? I'd rather have a one-legged, one-eyed Kovalchuk out there than Janssen. Think before you post.


Well everyone still wants Zharkov I guess despite the fact he has fewer NHL goals in a full season's worth of games than Stephen Gionta does in two weeks. And yeah Zharkov will be fine defensively for the 8-10 minutes he gets, but where does Kovy's other 10-15 minutes go? You wind up overplaying everyone else, because there 'is' no replacement for Kovy.

Mistake and more mistakes

Marty was both good and bad but he keep us in the game.

We are not dead or out in 5

Clean up the act and tie this up next game and go to Newark 1-1.

Typical stupid mistakes with lackadaisical play and you get a loss. And at this point I'd dress 7 D. Kovy needs to sit.

This was our game to win. I highly doubt we win game 2 now that philly has momentum. I hope I'm wrong. I don't want to see another OT game. They usually = a Marty softie and a Devils' loss

The closeness of the score was almost as misleading in this game as it was in Game 6 against the Panthers the other way.

Being outshot 30-11 or whatever it was (after the first period) and looking almost helpless for much of the OT period is.

The score was very misleading.

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.

I have to agree with you Colin. I have been following this team from day one. I love them when they win and love them when they lose. I think that they held their own in this game considering that every analyst had counted us out completely. I was more concerned about getting out of the first round and once that happened I can now sit back and enjoy the game. I was at the Carolina game so I know pain. We will get them in the next one.

True but honestly I think game 1s are the worst in every series as so many factors go into them from nj possibly being tired to Philly being rusty to them just getting used to each other. I think game two will be the true indicator of the rest of the series.

Also while we were def outplayed the second half, luck also goes a far way in a playoff series. One stupid bounce and we could have won it.

I would argue that the Devils were fully in control for a decent proportion of the game, counterbalancing the period of the Flyer's dominance and resulting in overtime and an ultimately narrow margin of defeat.

The Devils are carrying their bipolar play over from the previous series, during which the sky fell at njdevs.com numerous times, only to end in a narrowly won victory.

Until the results start coming in lopsided, I'll expect more of the same. A few inches this way or the other, and we lose the Panthers series, or win game 1 today. It's just how it goes.

We lost...but we were one shot(even a weak one with Bryzgalov) away from winning the game. We had good parts of our game a and bad. This was 1 of a possible 7 game series. We need to replicate the forecheck from today for game 2 and shoot more. Bryzgalov is god awful.

Kovalchuk is clearly hurt but benching him will do nothing but mess up the lines and make our 4th line ineffective by dressing Boulton/Janssen or gas a double shifting forward.

I also wouldn't mind Larsson dressed for Harrold.

Oh, and...SHOOT MORE.


Anyone who is complaining and whining might as well leave. That was a good playoff game, you can't win them all. Clearly it would of been great to win but you can't win them all. We need to split in Filthy.

Did we get a point for OT? No? Well than a loss is a loss. There's no victory, points or morally, in this situation.
