Well ya I'm always going to compare the Devils and Rangers to each other because I hate them.

I'm just sick of losing. This team hasn't done it in 20 years so there's no reason to start now.
They're no end in sight now.

the difference between the rangers and devils so far is that the rangers have looked abysmal in the majority of their games. The devils on he other hand have been in just about every game and really should have won at least 3 of them.

I understand there are no such things as moral victories, but the devils have a much better feel to them at this point. I'd be surprised if the rangers are not a bottom 10 team his year. I wouldn't be surprised if he devils challenge for a playoff spot.

Part of what impressed me about last night was how the power play looked - they get that kind of power play and the goaltending improves, they're going to start peeling off Ws.

 

Yep - the PP looked completely different with Gelinas.

what I liked most about gelinas is that he made quick, confident decisions. Which is the exact opposite of most of our defenseman, zidlicky too at times. I don't expect him to pot a pp goal every game, but the way he rips passes and posses the puck just shows a decisiveness that this team so badly needs at times.

I didn't see the whole game but liked what I saw from Gelinas.  He's a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy season thus far.

It wasn't just when Gelinas was on the ice though.  The team played well without him on the ice.

In the games where he's seen more shots he's done well, the games with fewer shots he hasn't.  Plus he pitched a shutout, that always helps the SV%.

 

Part of what impressed me about last night was how the power play looked - they get that kind of power play and the goaltending improves, they're going to start peeling off Ws.

 

That's why I mentioned him being uneven.  His individual game save%s have kind of been all over the place:  .857, .906, .941, 1.000, .870, .905.  Sure, if you want to take the shutout out, his season % is only .901.  Not saying he's been great (and those two goals were awful yesterday), but my only point was, even with uneven play, the overall numbers, while misleading, are still at least respectable.

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.

to my eyes the pp has steadily improved over the past 4 games or so, and it seems they biggest reason for that is jagr has really taken the reins. Perhaps it just took a few games for everyone to follow his lead.

how many more games is it going to take to start winning and winning consecutively.. i dont really get it, most games this team looks pretty dominant and they look lke the better team last night for example.. but its like they just cant finish or they blow a big lead or one mistake and thats the game.. last night i think it was on cory. He came out of the net to try to play the puck on the first goal and got himself caught. couldve been atleast a 2-1 W for nj last night if that didnt happen.

it is very frustrating. We were the better team last night, and the same thing goes for the sens flames and oil games. I would even say we were better than Columbus.

It just seems something else goes wrong every night. We never fire on all cylinders. It would be a lot easier to swallow these losses if the same problems keep causing them, but one night the defense is atrocious, the next they're awesome and the goalie stinks. And the next game we can't score.

were undefeated at home yah! nah?

 

i think this team is built for the PO minus that go to lead scorer/ line

 

by that i mean this team steps up to big games; matches opponents play

 

so i look forward to the Bruins game.

Was anyone else there last night near section 4? I was in section 3 and somewhere during the third period some guy was being escorted out by a bunch of security. Didn't see any fight happen, all we see is some guy in a devils jersey looking confused holding up his ticket to the ushers and being escorted out, then some usher comes down to where his row was and sits on the stairs for a while.

Nope but saw there was almost a fight after the game outside the Lafayette/Mulbury entrance.

There are now ushers sitting in the middle of the stairs in the following sections:

1/2, 3/4, 6/7, 9/10, 12/13, 14/15, 17/18, 20/21

It used to just be the lounge sections at the bottom of the railing.

i wonder why they did that.. its certainly not to help people find their seats im sure they couldnt give much of a crap about that, probably more so to make sure people arent moving down to better seats then what they have i bet
