With the way it looks now, the Flyers and Wings are within reach. I personally think this team should try and get the first wild card to avoid the Bruins. Pittsburgh is a team we can definitely beat, and give them problems. I'd also like to avoid the Rags since they too are not a favorable matchup for the Devils. Detroit is the team I want to overtake right now.


Come on MB!!

After how things have gone and then luck we are getting wouldn't you just be happy to make the show? I would take playing any of the top teams if it means we make it.

With the way it looks now, the Flyers and Wings are within reach.  I personally think this team should try and get the first wild card to avoid the Bruins.  Pittsburgh is a team we can definitely beat, and give them problems.  I'd also like to avoid the Rags since they too are not a favorable matchup for the Devils.  Detroit is the team I want to overtake right now.

I think you did what I did last night after looking at the standings after the win.  I thought the same thing about playoffs matchups, but you're going off the assumption that the other teams are going to lose out.  You're forgetting that 1) Philly has a game in hand 2) They would literally have to lose every game so far, which is not likely.  There may be reasons for optimism now, but there is still a lot of work to be done by these guys, and we're down Clowe, Henrique, and Elias as of today.  Think before you communicate.

No, no, no.  You guys are misunderstanding him.  See what MB is trying to say is that if they set their goals higher, even if they are unable to catch Detroit or Philly, if they at least come close they will probably have passed Columbus and gotten a playoff spot.  That's what his point was, you all just misunderstood. :P

Three important things I've learned from MB this year:

 

1)  Every team plays 82 games.

 

2)  We don't have to worry about opponents' games in hand until there are only 5 or so games left in the season.  As there are now only five games left for the Devils, this means it's now OK to worry about games in hand.  We have MB's permission.

 

3)  Whatever amount of points a team (or teams) has, if the season isn't over yet, that's not necessarily the amount of points those teams will end up with this season.

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.

Damn it, I had accepted that the Devils were going to miss.  Now they have me hoping again.

2-0 Columbus.  Yeah, I'll flip that back on if my ESPN app says it's any closer, this is a joke so far.

Either CBJ or PHI need to hit the skids. Too bad the Devils didn't put in much effort on those games they could have won.

Columbus looks pretty fired up so far.

really? they have been dominated for most of the game, they have scored on power plays otherwise the Islanders are all up in their sh!t.

Let's put this in perspective: the Isles are missing their two best players, are playing their 7 career wins backup goalie, and have nothing to fight for. Columbus on the other hand, is fighting for its life.
