Well the shots on goal are not high, and the Devils are generally pretty good positionally. I think it's more so goaltending. Last night it was mostly Brodeur. The Devils allowed 19 shots. And even when the Devils started scoring and Boston tried to amp up the attack...they really couldn't.
Brodeur needed to come up with some big saves yesterday. He didn't.
The Campbell goal was Jagr being Jagr (nice job Lou in the offseason, should've signed him) we couldn't get the puck off his stick...and here's Marty letting a soft rebound through his legs with no awareness of where the puck could be. (salvador looked like a fool on that play as well but we won't have to deal with him anymore this season)
Second goal was Brodeur just not getting square to the shooter and it was an easy deke around by 50 goal scorer Daniel Paille
The Campbell goal was a typical Brodeur long range softie
The Chara goal...Brodeur has to just squeeze the fvcking puck
The Seguin goal was the toughest of the night. But that puck is stopped by a good goalie
all this is not on Stevens
All 3 of those goals would have taken brilliant stops. Cambell goal was shot through 3 players. Marty never saw the puck. Seguin was bang bang where no defender even tried to play the puck or the open man (who was nearly in the crease). Chara bullied himself through everyone in the vicinity and put the puck through with brute force cause no one can move him.
