Honestly I am twice as happy about this game than any of the Florida games. This was a fantastic effort against a great team facing a phenomenal goalie. The devils will make the playoffs if they play like this the rest of the season, comfortably.

I'm currently feeling what I felt after going down 3-2 to the Panthers last spring....not good.

Bringing up Clarkson, I'd rather see slug Sykora than the Clarkson of the last twenty five games lol.  At least he wouldn't do the dumb **** like pulling up before getting to the line and going offsides in the last two minutes.

I think Clarkson's breakout scoring has caused him to think differently and is now causing issues when he doesn't produce. He probably feels like now that he, and everyone else, knows he can score that he is relied on to put up points and he hasn't been. That being said I am almost welcome to this if NJ is going to tank the season anyway. It helps drive Clarkson's price down come time to re-sign him.

Clarkson is still going to get a stupid contract this offseason, since he's shown he's capable of scoring 20+ goals in a season.

What's scary is...does this team lose it's last five with Kovalchuk in the line up?
Yes.
And probably worse than 3-2, 5-4, 3-2, 3-1, 1-0.
What's this, the 3rd time they've lost 5 games in a row?
They have the MOST losses in the entire league if you could the 1 pointers!!
Debour has to go. I'm sorry. Something has to be done this is ridiculous.

I sure wish I could be as positive as you but unfortunately I'm a realist and I have to disagree.
Yes that was a winning effort but they won't play like that every night.
Where was that effort vs the Isles?
Their schedule is too tough and other teams are surging at the right time while we are doing the exact opposite.
But I will gladly eat my words if I'm wrong..just don't think I'm going to be.

Deboer has a top 10 system in the NHL. I would argue top 5 without the tools.

Ok, gotta stay positive:

1) Very much in the playoff race still
2) Some big points still available in the games ahead
3) Continue playing the same way as today and maybe hockey Gods will smile upon us

Deboer doesn't need to go. Won't go. And SHOULD NOT go.

The notion that DeBoer should or could be fired doesn't resonate. Not even taking into account last year's great run, this team gives a good effort almost every night. The results haven't been good the last few weeks, but I just don't see a disaster or even a huge disappointment. It was frustrating, however, not to get two points against the Bruins ... the Devils owned most of the game.

Like Jason said, PDB runs a great ship.  He's just not been given much to work with in the scoring department.

Stop giving up on the team. Call yourself fans. We can still make the playoffs, you guys are just scared to believe in case you get hurt, it's easier to just lose hope. If we win the next game we could well be back in the top 8. Have some faith in your team. We haven't been playing that badly

He's great with the blueprints but I'm not so sure he can tell a hammer from a saw.

I totally understand the frustration and its so disheartening. I liked in the UK and am a huge fan. I stay up until 2:30am to see the end of the games, it's heartbreaking.
