Now, 2 weeks from now if they haven't started making some progress, then I'll get a little concerned.   But even then, the season's over in a couple of weeks, who cares.   It's not like 2010 where they were done in December and then you have 4 months of meaningless games to look forward to.

 

In two weeks if they don't progress you might as well change the channel to baseball because it will be all over.

I did expect them to win this game. They can't make the playoffs beating teams that aren't as good as them. Hell, in some cases they can't even beat those teams. But yeah, on home ice, having gained a bit more confidence, and playing a team that is "better" than them, I fully expected the Devils to win.

 

It was an ambush game at the end of a long run of games.   Against a good team.   It had death written all over it.   If the shoe was on the other foot and I was a Habs fan, and we lost that game, I'd go nuts.

 

It's a bug/windshield thing.    It's like the Rangers drawing us sitting around doing nothing while they play 3 in 4 during a slump.   *THAT'S* a game I expect to win and they better win it.

I will say that the bullsh!t penalties and non-calls didn't help the Devils at all.

They'll probably be right around where they are right now if they tread water.   The East is awful.   Are the Isles going to finish strong, or two teams from the SE finish in front of us?   If these things don't happen and we do nothing but tread water, we probably still won't miss.

It's entirely plausible that two teams below us could heat up. As Devils fans, we know first hand that teams who appear out of it can make serious runs. The trade deadline is coming up and some teams could as a means to get over the hump. Lou, I don't think he'll do much of anything.

It's also possible injuries eventually catch up to Ottawa, and Toronto keeps up their expected swoon and teams actually fall behind us, in spite of our own issues.  But I'm still expecting the cutoff number to be fairly high, it usually winds up higher than it's projected to be after half the season.  11-8 sounds about right as to what the bare minimum we need to go is.

I thought 6 over NHL .500 going in.   It may be less in the end.   Right now it's 50/51 points to get in.   Rangers and Isles are both at 50, rounded up.

Question is how much more can we ride Moose, Marty's back seems to be a injury of unknown length. If we keep losing and Lou does not go for someone by the trade deadline, well then Lou is pissing the season away!

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

Second this. The Devils weren't getting anything by Price tonight. Game could've gone for another period and we wouldn't have scored.

I'm actually suprised to hear this. I was at the game last year they attended, surrounded by blue, and I had an absolute blast with them. They're there to chear the home team and show they can support an NHL franchise. I wasn't there last night so I can't fully say they did the same this year but I was happy to join in their chants last year because they were joining in ours supporting the Devils.

 

When I found out they were visiting this year I was actually a bit upset I didn't know earlier to arrange to make it to the game.

I'd take any one of those Nord fans over the super-annoying 'sth' behind me.  Hell I'd take ten of them over that clown.

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 was already a few beers in so it was amusing lol

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.

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

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.
