I like everything about these lines. But how is Josefson already in game shape? It seems like a week ago, he still hadn't had a practice with the team, let alone a skate. I hope he's ready for what's coming up.

I'm waiting for plan B on the PP. It's so predicable, you might as well stencil it on the ice... But that's 2nd to the problems on the horrendous PK...

He's probably in shape but not in game shape.

I am surprised JJ is in. Sykora has looked awefully slow this entire series, and having a healthy JJ in there will help. However, I don't see how he can be ready to jump into this series when he just started practicing with the team a week or so ago.

No one has mentioned the excitement of the snooze (zzz) line being put back together. They were so good together a few years ago


Great catch, totally missed that. For the half game they were together for two years ago, they were absolutely unstoppable. Shame it didn't last longer.

Glad to see JJ with two guys who can work the boards. Should open some ice for him.

The meaningless thing that strikes me about this is how, injuries aside, Josefson's regular season is almost a mirror image of the Devils series with the Rangers. Tons of skill, great work, excellent plays, great scoring opportunities ... few goals to show for it. JJ was snakebitten all year, and this team has been snakebitten against Lundqvist. Hopefully both can snap out of it tonight.

Yeah, here's the shots attempted gamesheet: http://www.timeonice...amenumber=20801

Good lord that team iced a lot of bad players, and I even like and defend Mike Mottau. That's why, ultimately, that line was broken up - the Devils didn't have the forward depth to keep it together. Now I think it does.

Of course, I'll be happy with any win, but I would really like the Devils to completely take over game 4 and send the message that the Rangers can't just sit back and wait for a lucky break.


+1, sir.

Where has elias been the whole playoffs, he has been just as bad as sykora
Ever since his first goal in game 1 against the panthers he has pretty much invisible, certainly notthe way a guy who gets 65 points in the regular season should play

He's been on a terrible line, but I also think something might be wrong.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder
of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain.

Patrik Elias on ice shooting percentage 5 on 5, 2011-12: 10.29%
Patrik Elias on ice shooting percentage 5 on 5, playoffs: 6.93%

It's also possible that Elias is getting slightly fatigued - he's played more minutes this year than ever.

He made a quip early in he playoffs about how he wasn't feeling young in the 2nd and 3rd periods too. I think it held some truth.

Anyways how timely from TG: http://blogs.northje...out_of_drought/

I noticed in the florida serious that he was trying to be overly physical (ended up missing a bunch of his checks) and that clearly doesnt work for him he was trying to hit guys really hard and ended up taking a lot of stupid penalties
Not sure if that has been the case in the last 2 series
