Maybe next time we can actually make the opposing goalie, ya know, move, in the shootout.

Could have been worse. Devils didn't deserve a point. Marty played well.

What angries me more is that the Islanders lost 7-0 to the Flyers today, what a piss-poor excuse of a team. How the fvck do they turn it on and turn it off like that within a day or two. 5-1 against the 1st place New Jersey Devils and then they get their worst loss in a few years a couple days later.

 

Somehow we play them and they're all roided up, but they have no heart outside of the division.

 

The islanders we're not playing incredibly good against us. We just played terribly bad

Just awful...

6 rookies in the SENS lineup, 3 made their debut on Saturday... SENS missing Karlsson, Michalek, & Spezza


The problem is the team Devils have and with fairly predictable PP they can't blow anyone out if you let the other team which
is not as good (in this case due to injuries) hang in and hang in they eventually can bite you

That was the weakest Shootout attempts I think I have seen from this team in a long time.
Were they tired?

The Devils are not predictable on the PP, they are predictable all game long. I can say precisely what Kovy is going to do with the puck based on where he picks it up. Same goes with most players. That's what i hate about the system it's so damn predictable the only reason its working it's cause we're winning the battles it's creating on the boards but when we're not winning them we're a AHL team. Thats a fact. Our system relies like 85% on board work and dump and chase, when the effort or battles are not there, we have nothing

That's 2 straight losses... EVERYONE OFF THE BANDWAGON!!!

 

Big picture, the team has shown flashes of what it can do without the great Zach Parise. They have shown that games are no longer over when the Devils are down by 2 or 3. And they have gotten points in 13 of 16 games this year. The Devils have shown they can be a very good team, like the one we saw in the playoffs last year. Now it's just a matter of making them more consistent. I trust the coaching stuff to be able to do that.

Poor Bishop. He had to actually bend down on Kovy's attempt

Man that was bad. Comparable to the isles game in that they played a great first and couldn't capitalize enough. The game even getting to a shootout though is embarrassing. And before anyone says it, I don't think Parise would have made a difference in the shootout today. You don't try to deke a goalie that's 6' 7. Boys had the right idea in shootout but two missed the net and Elias shot it into bishops glove.

That's not really fair. Every team in the league has a system (ok, maybe not Columbus) that has strengths and weaknesses. Also, if you watch any player long enough, you'll be able to predict for the most part what will try to do. We are all just used to Kovy and what he does. I'm sure there are Washington fans that know exactly what Ovechkin is going to do most plays.

The Flyers were a division game lol.  It's called a whopper of a letdown - after beating the Rangers and the Devils eventually they were going to sag.

 

Absolutely no frigging excuse for the Devils today though, coming off that hot garbage on Saturday to lay another turdburger at home in one of the few games in the NHL that you really 'should' win.

They can't exactly rest on the first ten games forever in a short season.  They've sagged a bit since the Pittsburgh home-and-home, they were lucky to even get three points out of these three games.

I think we all know the potential is there, we need to execute more regularly. All teams have a mini slump and maybe this was inevitable after a lightning start. Keep supporting our team. We know what they can do. They do too

yes. and thats precisely why he's not the best player or even close anymore. the whole world know what he's gonna do with the puck.

This is 2013, everyone knows most of what every player can do with scouting/video the way it is, it's just a matter of who has more talent, executes better and/or wants it more on given nights.  You don't have 300-page playbooks in hockey the way you do in the NFL.

The people that complain about people complaining about losing a few games are way worse than the original complainers.

 

anyway, we're playing the caps and jets twice each over the next 4, we should be able to pick up 6 points or so out of that.
