Maybe Marty makes that glove side shot save in the shootout, but it's no guarantee.  The Desharnais goal was a great move.  The guy is 50% in the shootout.  Blaming Schneider in the shootout is dumb.

Get outta here man. The Desharnais goal was AWFUL. Could have driven a Mack truck through that 5-hole.

I'd hate to see the equivalent video of the infamous Carolina Game 7...

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?

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'm not worried one bit. By the way they've played in the past 22 games, I have no doubt they'll be in the playoffs.

If you dont walk away with points you don't make the playoffs, did you not watch last year? Playing well needs to equate to winning games. Obviously 2 games don't make or break the season, these were very disheartening losses to say the least. We played well enough to get at least 3, probably deserved 4, we came away with 1.

Relax... We're tied for a playoff spot right now against teams that have not been playing anywhere near as well or consistently as we have.

I generally agree and I always say I'm optimistic but you can't get around the fact that these are points we should be picking up. God forbid someone like jagr gets injured and/or our play does take a slump in the future then we could be in real trouble and looking back in games like these...

we're in a playoffs spot simply cause our division is the worst in the league though.

Yep, it sucked.  When you get the 'what should've been the game-winning goal' at 18:54, it's a real letdown that Schneider gets beaten 29 seconds later...

 

That's the reason why I'm down on #35 today....It's not blaming him for the loss but just being really bummed that he has yet to get over the hump to start taking the # 1 job

 

The slump we're all feeling after last night is so different from his recent numbers  (3-1-2, 1.28 GAA, .945 SV% in last 6 GPI)  which are terrific.

 

So yeah, he's playing great and it will eventually translate into our expectations from last June's Draft Day...

He's really not getting the breaks right now. Can't blame him for the goals, at least in regulation, deflections are tough to stop. Agree that I really would like to see him take the #1 spot and keep it.

This isn't really fair.  For one, Schneider got hurt.  For another, Marty got hot, and I thought the Devils were right to ride him out.  That delayed Schneider grabbing the #1 job, through no real fault of his own. 

 

Now, it looks like he's going to.  Not sure how you get down on him about yesterday, unless you want to pick on him about the shootout (not the route I'm going). 

 

The numbers are there:  1.81 GAA, .925 save%.  He's gotten some lousy goal support.

I'm really surprised - Olivier Bouchard over at Eyes on the Prize, the SBNation blog for the Canadiens, has this game with 27 scoring chances for NJ, 13 for Montreal (Alas it's in French, but from what I can gather Olivier is quite impressed with the Devils overall).  I did not think this game was that lopsided at all.

I thought it was. The shot totals were close but I thought we had a ton more scoring chances, which I'm not pleased to see is true.

The Devils powerplay seemed a lot more effective at generating decent scoring chances than the Canadians'.

well geez Tri, just ask your best bud frenchy here for translation.

 

he's mostly saying that most Habs players we're overwhelm and having bad games. Even if they did something that led to a goal that for the rest of the games they were mostly bad and that the Devils dominated them by a wide margin.

Haha, I know French well enough to get the gist of what he's saying.  He said that Markov and Subban being even against NJ shows what a good team NJ really is.

 

I really thought Emelin struggled in these two games.  I was impressed with him in the past but the Devils really made life tough on him.

quick question...

 

for Boucher's goal in SO... first game, first SO, scored but team lost...do you think he kept the puck or something? somewhat anticlimatic and the goal doesnt really count so

I believe I saw on TG's blog a fan at the game saw Ryder get the puck for his first assist but idk about the so goal, it's not really a goal.

Plus maybe the devils organization would want to keep that puck since it's the first SO goal they scored in nearly a year.
