thank fvcking god. was waiting for the inevitable divine intervention for the wings

 

overall a decent night aside for ref shenanigans in Washington.

 

Yeah, got some help tonight, a good night for us.  Not as good as it could've been due to the above, but.  I'll take it.

 

SO for Ottawa and Florida.

The fact that the cutoff point total didn't increase is a good thing.  80 points was the cutoff yesterday, and it'll still be the cutoff after tonight.

Florida wins the SO.  2 points for Montreal, 1 point each for Ottawa and Washington, 0 for the rest.

Man I kinda hate the Panthers since they seem to always be a thorn in the Devils side, but I do enjoy seeing them win.  Especially now with Luongo down there.

I have a soft spot for the Panthers because of their 96 Cup run.  Beezer is my 2nd favorite goalie of all time as well.  Luongo is definitely a favorite of mine too.  But most importantly, I've always loved their uniforms.

Good point...and it will be after tomorrow as well. Only game of any minor interest would be Rags/Flyers but both are way ahead of us.

 

If the Devils win on Thursday they are guaranteed to be at least 3 points behind one of the wild cards...maybe behind both of the wild cards of Detroit loses to Montreal

That's the one game the rest of the season where I REALLY want to see Marty play.  I'm tired of Cory-Luongo already and Luongo ***** slapping his younger buddy :P

He's getting the opportunity to play on the top line with Staal and Tlusty as a center.  Eric Staal got moved to wing, and he's excelling.  Good for Lokti.  I've been saying for a while now if he gets a chance to play with skilled wingers as a first or second line center,he'll do well.  So far it's panning out for him.

 

There simply was no place for him on this team.  Besides, Ruutu has been pretty good for us so far.

Devils HAVE actually gotten a fair amount of help the past few weeks.  They just haven't done a damned thing with it...9-9-2 in their last 20 GP (since 1/24).  If anything, it's kind of amazing they're not completely out of it at this point.  But if they had gone something like 13-6-1 (hell, even 12-8-0), they'd be in pretty good shape.  They have no one to blame but themselves. 

 

Anyway, the Leaf slump that just about everyone thought would happen finally has, but they probably played over their heads just long enough to withstand it...I have a feeling they'll recover just enough to get in (though of course I hope they keep sinking).

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

That's why I always felt it's better to simply try to get to a certain point total (93 ish) instead of focusing on how many points ahead or behind you are.  Let's say you only have 80 points, but are 10 points ahead of the team behind you.  As a team and a fanbase, you should know 80 won't be enough to get in, so you need to know not to let up.

Good, they've been absolutely terrible all year and can't believe they even made it to 80 points.

I am not upset that we lost Loktionov...not too upset. However, I see no truth in this statement.

He wasn't gonna displace Zajac or Elias.  And he's not a very good winger.  He's also not a very good 3rd line center.  He needs to be a 1st or 2nd line center with skilled wingers.  How was he gonna get that here?

 

Also, he wanted to be traded.  He was unhappy here.

Finally the Flyers rough schedule is starting to rear its ugly head.  It won't get any easier either.  Their next game against Toronto is going to be interesting though.
