Kept pace with Toronto for 6th and added a point to the margin over the Rags in 8th.  So that's good...extra point floated away on Henrique's OT whiff, that wasn't good.

The Devils are a scary bad team without Kovalchuk. They were lucky to get a point.

 

That wasn't a bad game at all for the last 51 minutes.  They outshot Ottawa by 20 in their building - okay that might be a little dubious counting but the fact is they had plenty of chances to win.

cant tell if youre serious or not. we outplayed them 2 outta 3 periods and was pretty even in OT. Like you said before you might be watching a different game. it was on MSG+

There were no specials in this game, the first time you noticed Kovy was missing was in the first 90 seconds of OT... and it was apparent pretty quick

By Pete's own admission they never practice the shootout, and didn't practice the shootout last year when they were godly at it. They probably should practice the shootout now that they don't have Kovy and Parise to save their ***es in it.


Well their record and the devils shooters feeble attempts should have clicked with the coaching staff long ago that they should practice at least a little bit. Just skating head on towards the goalie and taking a shot without forcing the goalie to move isn't gonna win many shootouts.

Their goalies are relics.   Practicing on Marty and Moose would do nothing against this gigantic overpadded monster.   Still logic should kick in and 3 of the 4 guys shouldn't be walking in to shoot.

I see a lot of you guys are pulling out the shots on goal stat.. But frankly, we're not seeing many quality chances.

Too bad we lost, Devils deserved better... We've been the better team both games against Ottawa. If we were playing like Sens all you'd hear is trap trap trap. They barely left their own zone the whole game. Not that I blame them with all the injuries.

Practicing the shootout won't do anything. These guys have done breakaways their whole lives. You aren't really going to get bishop out of position. They were looking holes in his stance before he had time to go butterfly.

Disappointed after that shoot out ...not over getting the extra point but because we didnt catch a win after playing what I would consider a much better game then to be expected, really thought we were the better of the two teams threw periods 2/3 ... Oh well atleast we got one point I guess.

Neither was Ottawa.  And that's the point.  Devils controlled the game for long stretches, forced their D into all sorts of turnovers.  Clarkson had hands for feet tonight otherwise he mighta had a couple of goals.  Devils were just fine without Kovalchuk and like max said, the OT was much different without him, but this game was played almost entirely 5 on 5 and he wasn't missed.

Hard to look past that SOG statistic, but I think we all knew how difficult this game would be... glad they got a point. If they could come on down to Florida and wreak havoc, that'd be much appreciated.

Or maybe he would have gotten us that third goal at ES. Or maybe he would have had a brain fart and given up a break away and we would have lost in regulation. There is no way of knowing.

But, if it's a choice between having or not having our most skilled forward who gets the most ice time a game for a forward by far, I'd rather have him at even strength, on the powerplay, short handed, or 4 on 4. They're a worse team without him in whatever situation you want to choose.

They're not substantially worse 5 on 5, if they're worse at all.  Losing Salvador and Gionta was certainly a boost to the team too.

Definitely noticed that. It took a few shifts but the team adjusted and played a lot better as a whole without those two.

Until you can recreate the game with a particular player who wasn't there you or I just don't know. Hell, he might be out for the rest of the year and we'll win the Cup, but I can say we would have won the Cup in 16 games had we had him.
