Devils mostly have shut down Crosby and Malkin.

JT owns this team, however.


With the islanders is always feel like games against them are either a blowout or a struggle. I had a feeling going into this it was going to be a struggle and it looks like I was right. I was hoping for 2 out of three for this Presidents' Day weekend and it looks like after tonight they are going to be 1-1 with Mondays game coming up.

What was the reason behind sitting Fayne? Every game he was out, we lost.

Honestly this is where I think losing parise hurt the most. He was excellent on the PK.

Another loss and another "sky is falling" reaction from this forum.

Status quo

How true....like I've said many times....you mean we won't win every game.

Fun fact: The Devils are 0-2-1 when Mark Fayne is not in the line-up. In those 3 losses they have given up 5 goals in each one. If they decide to sit him again for any reason other than injury, they're absolutely bonkers.

They've struggled on the PK since the beginning of the playoffs last year.  Funny how the 'PK specialist' (Volch) continues to play game after game while other guys get scratched, and the PK freaking sucks.

In a few years when his goal scoring starts slowing down I wouldn't be surprised if he spends the rest of the career as sort of a checking center or PK specialist. Though he would be the most overpaid PK specialist the NHL ha ever seen lol

Last time we lost 5-1 was against the Pens. We then beat them twice in a row on back to back games a week later.

 

Can't win 'em all.

They sucked at the beginning of the playoffs on the PK last year but got better in the second and third rounds before being terrible again in the finals.

I'd say they are more streaky than just awful

Agreed! And I don't see why Fayne isn't playing either. He has certainly earned it.

I agree too. 

 

See you may be making a point sitting a guy - but if you..  well the point made is: even a la-la Fayne is better than a lameass Tallinder.  Lesson learnt - Won't do it again.  If I'm Fayne that's what I'm thinking. You can't tell me he didn't know damm well what was going to happen  <_<  I'd have been an equally good sport about the benching

 

Tallinder and Salvadore I just have no faith in.  Vochenkov is beyond underwhelming. Why do I even have to pretend I like them?  Sal came up with the goods last season -- but man those two are just so UN clutch.  NON CLUTCH!!  :rant:  They have no SACK much less filler required.   For f&*('s sake do we really want happy good natured defencemen - "ah but he's such a positive guy" "yeah - I just get a warm fuzzy when we helmet bump"  CMON!!!!  I despair of the whole thing. and I dont know what gives with Volchenkov except a no trade clause.  :doh1:

(oh and there is something I like about Zidlicky.  I wish not. To be honest, I think it's just because he's Czech -- that, and he looks like Ed Norton and Bobby Holik's love child.)
 

He's an elite player. He looks like that on many nights.

I know  :lol:  that made me laugh....
