They didnt play that bad. Thought Price had a tremendous game, his rebound control was incredible.

You and I must have been watching different games. Except for a few minutes here and there when the Devils seemed to suddenly remember they were supposed to be playing a hockey game, this was one of the worst games I've seen them play this season. I'd have a pretty hard time recalling a game where the shot totals were less of a reflection of the game played. From where I was sitting, the Devs were a step slow pretty much all night, had a ridiculously tough time completing a pass, and had VERY few quality shots on goal. If you send soft shots directly at the crest on Price's jersey, he's gonna stop that shot. Every time. He'll take that all night, every night. And he did, last night.

Ok, just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one that enjoyed them. If I had the choice and knew they were coming I'd actually opt to sit in a section with them. As far as the wave...by the time they started doing it last season I as already a few beers in so it was amusing lol

You're definitely not the only one who enjoys them. A bunch of them were in our section last night, and my wife and I both (separately) told them how much we loved it when they show up.

I'll actually be skipping next years game when I know they are coming. They were beyond annoying to me. I'd rather have those seats filled with Devils fans.

Obviously in the best of all possible worlds it would be great if every seat would be filled with Devils fans, but it's awfully hard for me to see how anybody can complain about a busload of people coming in to cheer their guts out for MY team. I think they rock. Whenever they eventually get a team, I'll be disappointed that's they won't be coming around any more.

Ok, well, I agree that would be annoying. In our section they were definitely cheering for us.

A good bunch of the ones in 123 and 124 were rooting for the Habs. They weren't too obnoxious, except for 2 skinny jean wearers
sitting in 124.

Must have been a different game then. Devils didnt have a lot of jump but they played the game they wanted to play. They pretty much shutdown Montreal all night except for a few breakdowns. We didnt capitalize on our chances and Price was very strong. His rebound control was perfect. I wasn't mad at all after the game it was just one of those games where both teams were even.

I had no problem with the Nordiques Nation, saw most of them rooting for the Devils... On the flipside, never knew how irritating Habs fans could be, holy jeez... Can't even imagine having to deal with them on a regular basis. They're exactly what you'd expect a gloating French person to be when they're up in a game, and they were like that at 1-0 in the 1st. I could see them being more frustrating and annoying than the Rangers fans we usually deal with if we saw them regularly, which I'm glad we don't... Even the sober ones were as obnoxious and in your face as some of the blackout-drunk Flyers fans are when they're winning.

Well, Zidlicky cost us at least a point, maybe two. Although, the offense didn't help matters by only scoring one goal (again). I actually thought NJ played a very good game considering this was the third game in four nights. I thought Larsson and Greene did a good job against the Pacioretty line. Just one of those games where the opposing goalie comes up big (again). I do agree with Deboer; it was definitely a gutsy effort considering the fatigue. If we play more games like that, we'll win more than we lose. Unfortunately, it feels like I've been saying that a lot lately

 

Larsson turned the puck over badly 3 or 4 times in the defensive zone. If you blame Zids for his turnover, because it led to a goal, you can't praise Larsson, who turned it over more, just because his turnovers got saved by the goalie.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I think the edited post above mine mentioned Greene and Larsson had a good game while say Zids cost the team a point, either that or I was on a different page of this thread. I'm posting mobile so it's annoying to search.

Edit: It was in response to Smantas post at the bottom of the last page.

You can say that about any defenseman though. Greene had some bad giveaways, Sal had his usual blunders, etc. I can live with a young guy like Larsson making mistakes, but I can't deal with a veteran throwing a blind pass up the middle of the ice. Not to mention Larsson plays against stiffer comp

Zids giveaway was ridiculous. He passed it right to the point. He could have popped it out of the zone. Worst thing that happens is it goes over the boards and it's a penalty.

The worst thing is that he didn't take his man.  LOL.    Ended up the guy coming in from the other side tipped it in, but c'mon.    I guess he was amazed by his own boneheadness in teeing up a pass for Tinordi.

 or could have tried so send it around the boards... or in the air or wtv, anywhere but where he sent it... slow pass right to the point for a perfect shot.
