Beast of a game by J.S. Giguere tonight. Looks like he's really found his game..and in a year where pad sizes were reduced. Go figure.

I think there are some goalies that don't really realize that smaller pad will make them more agile and help their game.  May have been the case with him...

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.

I've already heard some discussion about Giguere being a possibility for Team Canada. Oh boy.

Sorry I didn't post the link, was in the middle of a rush at work, but yeah, Vigneault saying he may not be in for Philly on Thursday. But still day-to-day, so maybe most of their long stretch of games in the next two weeks.

What a useless player John Scott is.  I hope Shanahan throws the book at him.

Calling John Scott a "player" is giving him too much credit.

It was my brother's birthday last night. So, we ate out dinner and then hung out with close friends. I saw the madness all over Twitter. It doesn't surprise me. Guys like Scott don't belong in hockey. The Sabres were down 2 goals. And Ron Rolston sent his goon out. For what purpose? I pinned the blame on Rolston for the circus with Kessel even if Carlyle had last change. Now, when there was no reason for it, there's Scott delivering the kind of cheapshot that doesn't belong in the game. I devoted an entire post on the blog. I say he deserves to be suspended either 20 or 40 games. Shanahan must throw the book at him. One day someone is going to get killed.

Maybe it's being someone who is used to pre-lockout hockey, but my biggest problem with that play is distance he covered and the angle.   The hit, not so much, it sucks, but when you're 6'8" in a league full of 5'10"-6'0" players, when you hit people, you're hitting them in the head.   Whether you want to or not.

 

You can't hit people in the head anymore, so he goes home for the night and gets suspended.   And that's the end of that.   But if it was a head on play, it wouldn't bother me that much, to be honest.   My only problem with it is that he gave Loui no chance at all coming from the angle he did.

I get that hitting is difficult in this fast game, but Scott could quite easily have adjusted his path and caught Eriksson primarily in the shoulder. Maybe he'd made contact with the head, but it'd been considered a clean check by today's standards, unless I'm forgetting how they judge the angle a guy takes.

Exactly.  He could've easily hit his side first, but went for the head.

I'm honestly kind of surprised Scott had the ability to line up a moving target like that.   It's eerie how similiar it is to the Stevens/Lindros hit.
