That Brodeur injury was scary. Woke me up pretty quickly as he was just laying their motionless. Glad it seems like he's ok but hopefully they really take their time to make sure it's nothing to worry about.

same thing happened to me... I was falling asleep but as soon as I saw Marty lying motionless I woke the fvck up and saw the last minute and a half.

Also the radio broadcast said it was the back of larsson's left knee and he did not return to the game after the hit.

FINALLY...the Sched from Hell is done. 

 

9-9-5...fitting record, in that there's reasons to be both encouraged and concerned. 

 

It was great that the Devils managed to come away with four points on this trip...but it's obvious that there are teams that the Devils flat-out don't match up well against.  Looks like their goaltending is going to keep them in a lot of games, as long as Marty can continue to play close to as well as he's been...this team rarely gets blown out.  Eliminate phantom shootout goals, and the Devils are -2 in goal differential.  That at least shows they're not really lucky to be 9-9-5...the record is really right about where it should be.

 

The next 23 games have a much more favorable home/road spread (14/9).  Though I'm optimistic, as much as I'd love to say that the Devils are primed to go on a little run here, I'm not sure that they will.  Goal-scoring seems like it's not going to get much better than it is right now, barring a new body or two coming in, and Brunner and Ryder suddenly getting hot (Brunner just looks lost at this point)...means the goaltending is going to have to continue to be great just to keep the Devils consistently competitive and in games.  Seems like a lot to ask, especially of a 41-year-old. 

 

Right now the Devils have the look and feel of a .500ish team.  Hope they can build off this 6-2-1 burst they're currently on and surprise.

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.

gutty finish by the boys, no give up in this team. marty was strong again after that first-(i think he was giving his exhausted a blow on that weird sprawl)

 

Ryder has been playing MUCH better hockey, but needs to hit the net.  Zubrus has turned things around too

 

thought gelanis was really good defensively, I'll blame a lost brunner for that 2nd goal

 

thank goodness were not in the pacific div, can you imagine playing the ducks sharks and kings on a weekly basis?????

 

good results from that trip, but better to be back at the rock monday!

I think if there were any reason to be concerned we'd have heard something about it. Absolute worst-case scenario, he has a concussion. But I really, really don't think that's the case. He seemed fine after the initial daze wore off.

Geez that was a late one, game ended at 2am for me

Im glad the boys fought til the end, we could have tied and get a point too came really damn close, no shame tho the sharks are a fvcking good team.

2-1-0 is excellent on that trip.

My only worry is when salvador and volch comes back, a lot of our goals came from the D, with those 2 taking lots of minutes we'll restrain our chances. Of course they are better defensively but thats not really our problem either

Anyone throwing sh!tfits about this team at this point isn't being realistic or fair.  That schedule was murder.  And it's obvious the Devils are not a SC contender at this point, but are at least a playoff contender in a division that hasn't had anyone pull away yet.  It's not great, but it could be a lot worse, especially considering how they started.

Was at the game - nothing to add really to what was already said, one funny moment was on of the numerous well-executed Sharks transitions in the first period, Sharks were getting a 3 on 2 break and Jagr was trying to catch up but it was clear he was really not catching anyone,one of the Devils forwards further from the forecheck trying to back-check along with Jagr (one of the Zs) gave Jags friendly whack in the tuch with his stick - which either meant try to catch up faster or try to backcheck on the other side :)

I don't think we win unless you crash. It hurts but sometimes you gotta #takeonefortheteam


Well that didn't work...I was crashed about 10 mins into the game!

Glad we're back to regular time games! :)

What the heck happened to MB? He got hit in the neck? anyone have a link to replay of it?

Yea it didn't look bad at all, but he was down for a long time.  My guess is the puck hitting him in the back of the neck really knocked the wind out of him.

a puck hitting you in the back of your neck wouldnt knock the wind out of you lol... enless you breath with the back of your neck.. thats your spine and a ton of nerves which was why it was so damn scary.. he got hit back there and then didnt move not even a finger .. he couldve been paralyzed(god forbid) my first thought was he got knocked out just because there was zero movement. he said it felt like an electric shock and he was afraid to move at first, said hes never felt anything like this before.

You can get the wind knocked out of you if you get hit in the upper back though.  Granted it doesn't look like the puck hit him in the upper back.

I was prepared to be thrilled if we could get 3 points out of the possible 6 this week. We got 4 and almost a 5th, the boys did amazing and exceeded everyone's expectations, through bad play and good. Their ability to get an ugly win here and there is just as important moving forward as getting the nice pretty ones.

 

And if I had to pick the one or two games I wanted them to win on the trip, it was the Anaheim and L.A. ones. Expecting a S.J. win is pretty unreasonable and we shouldn't feel bad losing to one of the powerhouse Western teams 2-1, being a shot or two away from making it 2-2.

 

Edit: I always knew San Jose fans were great, but they really showed their class when Marty got back up, he pretty much got a standing ovation. As far as the crowd during the game, they were nice and loud and I've heard that building is one of the loudest in the league, mostly due to its design and the acoustics. Would love to go there for a game, always really love their team and Anaheim's, the two teams I generally push for to succeed out West.

The Devils need defense, especially on the PK.

People like Zidlicky and Harrold are just not getting it done on the PK.
