They did indeed trap in the third, but hey, it worked.

And in Pierre's defense (...did I really just say that?), every time he mentioned bad ice, he did qualify it by saying it was warm in the building because of all of the fans, and that there had been Red Hot Chili Pepper shows the two nights prior, and it's the price you pay for having a busy building.

Seriously, he must have mentioned RHCP at least three times. Methinks Pierre's a fan. Interestingly, no mention of Bruce playing the night before the first RHCP show.


I heard Kenny Albert mention the Bruce performance haha

Just watching the replays... as a goalie I'm enjoying the schadenfreude aspect of Bryz's reactions after he's been absolutely hung out to dry by his D on the Zid and Zub goals. The Zubrus goal especially... His body language says, "are you f'ing serious guys? come on..."

Zid's hockey sense on his goal was unreal... I think most defensemen retreat to the blue line there, but he realized he was covered and had the opportunity to drive the net.

BTW, it's gotten lost in the shuffle...but the Devils have now won four straight in the Rock. Pretty significant.

Oh, and according to ESPN's Devils' schedule page, Frazee was the Devils' top performer last night.

EDIT: ESPN just fixed it...now it's Zubrus.

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.

You have to admit, though, that Frazee didn't make a single mistake last night. :rolleyes:

Yes they were. They got minimal pressure but until the PP it was 1-2-2 and they were standing still at times. Gotta go after them some more.


I had no complaints about their third period play. It felt like were in control the entire time. That one-goal lead felt safe to me, which says a lot about how they've played this series.

And you had to expect the Flyers to push back a little and start getting some more shots on goal...I didn't think they were going to get outshot 48-18, which is what the pace was after two periods.

Devils played about as close to a perfect game as could be expected, even though they fell behind 2-0...guess I'm just not in the mood to pick apart a game that was a 9 and say, "Yeah, but it should've been a 10, had they only done THIS." It just feels like some segments of this fanbase are just never happy and always have the answers, even after a terrific game like last night's.

They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Could argue that maybe the same two teams are now competing for Parise's deal, though I have no idea what LA's cap situation is, now that Carter's and Richards' deals are on their books.

I have to think that this magical run is going to have a big impact on Zach's decision. We are 1 game shy of the ECF...
Kovy is set to be here for awhile. We have other young guns like Henrique...Zach wants to win a Cup
I know think he will stay as long as the Devils offer is somewhat close to the others he will receive

They've got a solid $7.8 million coming off of the books this summer in Dustin Penner and Jarret Stoll, according to cap geek. So I guess that'd put them right up there among the contenders.

Ah, I didn't scroll down that far, you're right. I thought they'd already locked him up long term as well for some reason. He's definitely earned a huge contract with this postseason, that's for sure.

That's good...one less team bidding for his services, though if the money or the length gets crazy, Devils should let him walk.
