Malkin disappears in the big game even pens fans know it and himself do. Onxd post season comes the Pittsburgh Penguins are a totally different squad of players, plain and simple.

Exactly.  Tie breakers don't come into play until we get to like 5 games remaining into the season.  Same thing goes for games in hand.

Realistically we don't have to worry about losing a tiebreaker to Detroit, Washington, or Ottawa unless the Devils start miraculously winning shootout games. With everyone else, it's too close to waste time speculating this far out.

 

Our odds improve if at least one of Tampa, NY, or Philly collapses. That would put both wildcard spots and/or 3rd place in the division in contention. Tampa could easily fall out of contention by the end of the month (if the Devils beat them and they lose to non-bubble teams like Boston, Phoenix, Florida, Vancouver, Toronto, Pittsburgh, etc.).

Look at that stupid Russian, #87. Lazy backcheck and -5 on the night. He should go home and play in the No Backcheck Hockey League back home in Russia.

I think that's a little overly-optimistic. Crosby, Malkin and Neal don't just disappear.

 

We can shut down that offense.  We've proven that time and time again.  Our system just gives the Penguins fits, and their defense can't handle it.  They don't have a gritty defense, and if we play physical, it tends to cause them a lot of problems.

 

Realistically we don't have to worry about losing a tiebreaker to Detroit, Washington, or Ottawa unless the Devils start miraculously winning shootout games. With everyone else, it's too close to waste time speculating this far out.

Tampa could easily fall out of contention by the end of the month (if the Devils beat them and they lose to non-bubble teams like Boston, Phoenix, Florida, Vancouver, Toronto, Pittsburgh, etc.).

 

I can definitely see Tampa and Philly collapse.  I don't see the Rags collapsing though.  Tampa without St. Louis imo is gonna end up sinking them.  Stamkos coming back is great, but St. Louis truly was the heart of that team.  They've been very inconsistent in 2014.  Philly has the potential for a collapse simply because of their brutal schedule.

 

I have this feeling this team is done playing down to weaker opponents.  We have no choice actually.  I see a different swagger with this team since coming back from the break.  Hopefully it continues.

Have you seen the Ovechkin one?  The OV one is the true legendary one on HF.  It actually spread to media outlets as well and certain blogs.

Awful night for the Devils

 

Blow a 3-2 lead to Detroit after coming back from 2-0

 

Rags down 2-1 to Carolina with about 8 minutes to go in the 3rd. Do they lose? Of course not. 4-2 Rags

 

Devils now 5 points behind NY and 4 points Detroit. The season is dwindling away

That's why the Devils and Carolina are where they are. They are mediocre teams that find/invent ways to beat themselves.

Honestly the main reason why I'm not freaking out about the devils is that while I thought they would be a playoff team before the season started, there was a piece of me that feared that the team could also be hot garbage. Well they are not quite hot garbage but not a playoff team either.

They are as mediocre as they come. At least patty and henrique are getting it going.

Fyi the Rags and Wings play each other next, so you can pretty much bet it will be a 3 pointer (though the Devils would gain on one or the other if they win tomorrow regardless)

lol if the Rangers get two and the Wings get one, even if we win we'd be four behind both of them.

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

No we'd be 3 behind Detroit, 5 behind nyr

 

Ideal result. Wings lose in regulation and we win in any fashion

 

At least we play the Rags once more, but overall the rangers have an easy schedule the rest of the season

 

Detroit is actually about to enter a very rough stretch

Put a fork in them. This season is done, Mates. I don't think this current incarnation of the Devils has the perseverance to reach 92 points.
