And it looks like Kovy as a Devil will ALWAYS have those frustrating streaks where we all wonder what the hell is going on, until he goes on one of his rampages that makes us all forget the latest frustrating streak.

 

Don't get me wrong, this is one of my favorite group of guys the Devils have ever played with. But on a team that is 5-1-3, there isn't a lot of negativity, for good reason too! I was just annoyed beyond words at how poorly they executed on the rush. I've seen too many leads blown, and a blown 3-goal-lead game against the Rangers would have had this place in meltdown central.

 

I'm thrilled with the win, sorry bub :)

 

It's all good, I understand where you're coming from.  I just get so giddy when they beat the Rangers, I tend not to see the bad things as much.

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.

Also, not for nothing, but if Josefson had Clarkson's luck he'd be a 40 goal scorer.

I actually thought kovy looked like he was turning the corner tonight. Not great by any standards but I noticed him alot more than previous games, and in a good way.

I don't think Kovy is really playing a bad game it's just, like the rest of the team, has a case of pass-itis

Good news the Devils are 5-1-3 WITHOUT Kovy being hot.  They've survived both that and losing Parise to date.  Definite major positive.

It has nothing to do with luck. Josefson can't shoot for his life.

Great to get a win, especially in regulation. I can't say enough great things about the Devils PK and Brodeur. Won the game for them in my opinion tonight. Thought Butler fit in nicely too.

Exactly what I think is going to happen. He is creating chances, but I noticed that he sometimes tries to make the pretty pass instead of shooting. If he used his wicked shot a little more, he would have a lot more goals. I don't think he's distracted by the KHL, he knows the NHL is the place to be, and the team is doing well. It's only a matter of time before he starts scoring regularly.

Great atmosphere tonight, saw almost half of a section get 'escorted' out. Security almost shoving some drunk a$$hole down a flight of stairs was the highlight in the regard.

Couple other things:

- Marty was fantastic
- Kovy was not so fantastic
- Gio can really fly out there
- Odd man rushes need a lot of work. Just shoot the damn puck
- Another 1st NHL goal scored on Marty...Triumph or someone should make a thread about it. This has got to be the 15th player at least to score his first on Marty

Oh and one last thing..if Clarkson keeps this up, he's going to get paid this summer. Big time $$$ for him. Hope it's from the Devils.

Larsson was absolutely fantastic tonight. I think it was his best game as an NHL player.

He was Johnny-on-the-spot with his clearings tonight. From my seats, it seemed as though everytime the Rangers got the puck to the slot and Larsson was on the ice, the puck was cleared the next second. Even if it was just to the boards, he killed chance after chance for them.

I also thought Larsson looked great tonight. He seems to be learning to read plays more and knows where to be in our own end. Also really liked what I saw from Butler. He's smart with the puck and was possibly the ONLY guy all night to actually complete a pass on an odd-man rush, just a shame it was to Jacob "Hands of Stone" Josefson because he deserved an assist there.
