You would be amazed how good we were in the first two periods. That 3rd period was just unreal.

It's simple they stopped skating took bad penalties, it seems like every game going into the the third if we tie it or have a 1 goal lead were doomed. Kovy needs to score or set up someone. Lou needs to pull the trigger and make a move! What it is? But something needs to shake up this team and IMO we need another forward.
Tonight was just Sad ,, Sad!
Oh yeah pleeeaaaasee bench Moose!

After every devils game on this lossing streak I think there is no way the next game will leave me feelign worse, this is about the most furious I have felt after a game so far.

Yeah, I usually don't get too upset over them being in a slump, but this one got to me a bit.

 

The Devils didn't make it too hard for the Leafs this game either. They hardly had to battle.

So I guess we're just ignoring last season when he scored 83 points on the right side? Seriously, you're barking up the wrong tree here.

 

He had mid 40 ES, about the same as Elias.    And there was a worthy LW on that line.    Also for the record, I didn't like that line, their games didn't mesh unless it was in transition.

The Devils don't have anyone to put as Kovalchuk's RW.  They've got two guys on the roster who shoot right-handed, Clarkson whose game works with Kovalchuk's not at all, and Bernier, who can play there but shouldn't.

There was really no excuse for them to come out the way they did the first minute of the third when they were completely dead and gave up two great chances, one of which goes into the net cause Elias has a once-every two years brain cramp and Moose can't cover his near post.  I mean a one goal lead and they think the game is over after forty minutes?

The Leafs got 23 shots on goal today. Only 10 after the first two periods...Hedberg has been atrocious. 2 very soft goals today, a softie yesterday and just a sieve in the shootout against Buffalo. With average goaltending we could've come away with 4 points in the past two games.

 

This is the worst goaltending we've gotten in a long times. And Zubrus being out doesn't help things either

Who cares.   Their mentality on this is fvcked up beyond all recognition.

 

God forbid we put a left shot on the RW.    If he doesn't go back, they are not going to score 5 on 5 with any consistency.

If Lou is not going to do anything, than the hell with thinking playoffs how about picks in the draft!

Who are you going to put there?  The issue isn't putting a left shot on the RW, it's putting a left shot on the RW with a right shot on the LW.  Which is something that teams don't often do.  It hurts the breakout, and makes offensive zone play off the rush difficult too.  So again - who's going there?  

 

They're not going to score 5 on 5 with any consistency anyway.  They don't generate many shots 5 on 5.

Play a two man game with a schlub.    It's not working at all.

Bernier fits the description of schlub.    Does it really matter, they had dumbass Nick in that role and he'll never come close to a first line role anywhere ever again?
