We were like 4-100 at one point in 2006 lol, and that was with a lot better personnel.

Shaw's system is better than Oates's - since they switched back to the Oates system and lost Kovalchuk that's when the numbers really took a tumble.

 

Oates's power play is running super hot, but around here that means he's an awesome coach who's clearly beaten the system.

Found this on InLouWeTrust. Pretty crazy if you draw a rectangle from the dots down to the goal line and consider they had 17 (17!) shots recorded in those areas. Only five shots can be dismissed as potential 'Clarkson wrist it on from the blue line' and it doesn't even include posts, or shots just wide. This truly is terrible luck

Do they have other games?  I'm actually more amused by the Ottawa shots than ours.  Only four in a prime scoring area really, and they somehow get two goals out of it and win.

I haven't been able to find any others, the site is a little tricky

Just find the ESPN boxscores and it'll be in the gamecast.

 

That's the one I was talking about, I had it as 20-4.

On XMRadio HTM, they have used the phrase "not as bad as New Jersey: a few times lately. I guess the Devs are now the measuring stick for suckiness.

I just can't put my trust in luck.  I say it means it's a team-wide shut down right at the point of shooting.  It's taking your eye off the puck.  It's true with EVERY game like this - pool, golf -- if you don't finish it's because you're not playing through the finish.

 

that's just the facts.  They MISS.  THEY MISS because they lose it -- they lose focus and they dont see where they're really putting the puck. They stop playing.  they think this HAS to go in and STOP PLAYING. You have to PUT IT IN STUPID. It's basic hockey.  come on even....

 

It's the only answer.  Luck is bullsh!t.  There;s no such thing.  Injuries means sh!tty conditioning.  THIS this horsesh!t up there -- that's stopping -- that's trusting luck and intuition just waaayyyyy too much.  stupid &*$&($ers. Clearly they stop and say Now God is going to put it in the net or some such garbage.  I bet you can point to every shot on tape and see where the eyes leave it - where you take your eyes off and the puck gets fvckED off your stick.  DeBoer is a LAWYER FOR &*#(@^SAKE.  he shoudl have cuaght this and should know how to sell it.

I want to know how the last 3 games are humanly possible. How we allow basically 1 games worth of shots on goal in 3 games, dominate territorially, get tons of chances. And get 0 points.

 

I know we have a useless sack of garbage in net...but for some reason I can't get on the offense too much. They are literally playing their heart out!

 

the sack of garbage needs to learn to square up to the shooter, needs to learn to close his five hole

 

These game should at least be going to OT

7: yeah he ain't playing his best but that don't matter when we can't score a single go. It was best said as we have players who put the Puck on net but we don't have anyone putting it in. What do you want?marty letting in zero?we can't score so wouldn't matter. Doesn't matters unless we can put it in the net and we epic fail at it

Not 'quite' as pronounced as the Ottawa game, but there weren't a lot of Clarkson prayers on the boards in this one either.

clarkson was a beast on the boards today...didn't amount to anything but he's been better recently than he's been the past 2-3 weeks when he was just invisible. We didn't even notice him falling down.

Bottom line is if you put Reimer on the Devils tonight and Marty on the Leafs you would see a complete different outcome, that is what 7 is saying. Marty is obviously not the reason why they are losing but he is not helping at all.

Agree with that yeah its pretty obvious Marty isn't playing well no. If hedberg wasn't sore I would sit marty to relax him a bit

When a goalie doesn't face a lot of shots they rust up in the game.  I believe this is true for most goalies.
