Score and shots don't reflect how dominant the Devils were tonight. Really great job by the entire team. Really hope they keep Greene-Fayne together long term. Zubrus-Zajac-Brunner was also a pleasure to watch. The whole team seems to really being getting some chemistry.

I was bothered when the announcers mentioned how "the Devils need more out of #19." He's been solid this year and great tonight. Well worth it.

Great job by Brodeur. He may not be what he once was but he's really stepped up lately when this team needed him to.

I think it's going to be tough to catch the Pens. They're relatively injury free and Fleury seems to have improved compared to the last few seasons.

Andre usually is good in the season. Its post season where he has a meltdown.

I would describe that game as sufficiently boring.   They kept shots way down and had the game under control for probably 5/6ths or so of it.   Far less stupid mistakes.   Not many if any that could immediately be put on the goalie.   Protecting the goalie (for the most part, again).    That's probably how they have to play.

its a step in the right direction as compared to the sloppy play at the start of the season

but they will (I hope) generate more scoring (chances) as the next step

Marty deserves the next start. He's played pretty decent.

 

Marty's getting one of two anyway, since it's a back-to-back.  Problem is if Schnieder can't play this weekend, Marty'd have to get both games which isn't exactly ideal.

play Marty against Philly...he's in a groove, he owns them and it gives the Schneid an extra day to loosen up

I'm trying not to get too high, but I might have to eat some crow about DeBoer. We'll see what he does when Sal gets healthy, but he's got a better lineup now.

While I agree that Zajac has been good, I can't exactly blame them for saying something like that when the first things they see about Zajac are <.5 pts/game at nearly a $6mil cap hit. I think he's worth it for what he brings, but I definitely hope he can develop some more creativity or scoring touch. As it is now, he seems to be very far from our more offensively gifted players.

Meanwhile no one mentioned that gel rocket that injured the one lightning player. I expect that kind of stuff to continue, and put some fear into these defenders blocking shots from our blue line.

I would imagine they are keeping gelinas with Larsson.

One of volchenkov or Salvador needs to sit. Not gonna happen, but a boy can dream.
