florida was sooo much better behind their net than these guys, it was like a party for us.

zubie was a monster in the 4th, harrold, bernier, zajac, carter gio, greene, zids, patty and zach are getting it done

larsson and A-train showed signs of life

shutting up the flyer fans and NBC priceless


I would like to see Poni pick up his game a little. He had me facepalming a few times.

This game showed me the Flyers are beatable. I don't know if it was about the Devils shutting them down defensively and tactically or it was just an off-night for the Flyers, but I was really excited last night. By far the Devils' best game of these playoffs. It's worth noting the Flyers haven't scored less than 2 goals in their previous games this postseason.


Wait...what?

Would also like an update since Simmonds received a misconduct for going after Fayne for no reason at the end of the game. Since he has a prior misconduct in a playoff game, doesn't that mean automatic suspension for one game?

That piece of sh!t is such a sore loser, almost as bad as Hartnell

Florida might actually match up better against us than the Flyers. The Panthers speed turned our defense around plenty of times each game, we really haven't seen it that much in this series.

I think it was a combination of both. If we win at home on Thursday the same way it will be like an earthquake hit Philly. Last night or not they still think this is their Cup year. It will be soooooooooo sweat to knock them out of the playoffs again :)

Nope. It's such bullsh!t.

The slashing thing is still bothering me. It got kinda lost in the mix, so I'll ask it again: When did knocking the stick out of your opponent's hands become a slashing minor? It's always seemed like -- as far as stick-on-stick slashing goes -- the standard was whether or not the stick broke. Broken stick? Sit for two minutes, feel shame, then you are free. But knocking it out of their hands? Twice last night we got minors because the Flyers had butter fingers.

Do I just have crappy memory, or is it really something that's called so rarely (if at all) that it's tough to remember other instances?

I've definitely seen it called before, especially during the penalty crackdowns in 2005-06. You'd hear the old meathead hockey commentators whine about players being unable to hold on to their sticks.

NJ.com: who stepped up most in Game 2

also mentions our buddy Pierre

Andy Greene: The main part of the stat sheet is blank -- no goals, no assists, no shots -- but take a look at the intangibles: A team-high five blocked shots, a team-high 29 shifts, a team-high 22:58 ice time. Greene got lots of third-period love from NBC analyst Pierre McGuire (although Devils fans on NJ.com were ripping the analyst in our comments sections during and after the game).


Even nj.com recognizes the hate for Pierre.

Ah, thanks for confirming it's just my crappy memory.

I don't like stick checks getting called slashing (stick breakage or not), but as long as it's consistent I can't complain.

I think Wellwood has a career in ballet or ice skating competition with the over the top embellishment of Zidlicky's elbow hit. Granted, his head made contact with Zid's elbow, but he literally made a grammy performance out of it and spun in mid air for more than 360 degrees.

Please, someone find this.

This is what happens when you play 50 minutes instead of 20. Loved how they kept pushing in the third until the got that first goal. It was clear that Bryzgalov would start sucking after he got beat once.

It's also what happens when the opposition shows up for 10 minutes. The Flyers were atrocious.
