That ref better hope fans don't find his car. He better get disciplinary action by the league. That was clearly a guess call and not based on reality. The ref was completely wrong on that play, and he cost us a goal. you can blame that one on the ref.

The Devils were probably not scoring anyway...but you can't make that call that late in a 1 goal game unless you're 100% sure. This is a call you can get away with in the 1st period, but doing this here is amateur hour. I hope the NHL reprimands this bozo

I don't know why anyone is down on PDB after this game, we don't have scoring talent. I like his system it IS creating chances, we just don't bury them. The one knock on pete has been his terrible management of personnel, I have no complaints with who he went with tonight. Unless you are from an alternate reality where this was the game brunner started producing and had 2 goals.

 

And for bigz roasting Henrique, Henrique was basically robbed by a ridiculous behind the back no look save, barring a heroic goal tending effort there he would have scored. He is clearly a little hurt but there are people I would be more quick to bench then him. And that last goal, I mean that was threaded through such a small space that could have happened to everyone on our roster.

The call was downright awful and while it cost the devils an opportunity to tie it up, the devils simply have to play better. They were always at least a step behind the red wings players and the fact that they got those penalties such as hooking and slashing really shows the devils were just panicking just to catch up.

Tomorrow is a big game against not only a division rival but a team ahead of them. They really need those two points and hopefully best them in regulation.

WRONG.

A goalkeeper shall not play the puck outside of the designated area behind the net. Should the goalkeeper play the puck outside of the designated area behind the goal line, a minor penalty for delay of game shall be imposed. The determining factor shall be the position of the puck.

Well then..that ref screwed up. He was thinking what I was thinking.
It's a rare penalty to begin with.

Anyway...the Devils played a team that had two of the best players in the world out with injury and mustered 11 shots. They're a joke. They hung Corey out to dry on every goal that was scored and that's why they lost.
Also Debour is an idiot. Really..you would rather start Brodeur tomorrow? He is handling these goalies the way he handles most of the young talent...WRONG.

Youre not honestly trying to defend Henrique are you? His giveaway vs Montreal cost us the win, and his poor marking on the gwg was costly. He hasnt done anything in a long time

27.8 Restricted Area – A goalkeeper shall not play the puck outside of the designated area behind the net. This area shall be defined by lines that begin six feet (6’) from either goal post and extend diagonally to points twenty-eight feet (28’) apart at the end boards. Should the goalkeeper play the puck outside of the designated area behind the goal line, a minor penalty for delay of game shall be imposed. The determining factor shall be the position of the puck. The minor penalty will not be assessed when a goalkeeper plays the puck while maintaining skate contact with his goal crease.

 

I got that from the NHL website. The last two sentences are kind of contradictory. If it's the position of the puck that matters... what does the goalies skate in the crease matter?

 

Anyway, just my opinion but the Devils have way too many moving parts in their game right now. They spend so much energy grinding the puck behind the goal line, and so much time thinking with the puck. This obsession with getting pucks to the point ALL THE TIME takes our forwards' skills out of the game. They played better than 11 shots, but you have to get the puck to the net. 

 

I like Pete Deboer as a coach, but it may be time for someone else. Or at least time to reconsider the way we play in the opponents end because it feels like luck every time we score.

At times like this I wish Ftorek was behind the bench and not just because of the horrible call. This team is an absolute mess. 11 SOG vs their backup? Not getting even a loser point when their 2 top guys are out? Really?

To some extent yea I will defend Henrique. Much like zajac he does a lot of good defensive work for us, which is grossly underappreciated on this forum (but ironically enough if he messed up you roast him for that). Obviously his turnover on wed led to the game tieing goal, but at the same time there was a lot more at play that resulted in that goal then just Henrique coughing up the puck. For instance go watch that subban slew foot on elias and watch as the puck goes right by elias stick to the point because of it.

 

Henrique is obviously hurt, probably came back to quickly but why anyone thinks he's the reason we are losing these games is beyond me. Tonight was the entire teams fault, they looked worse tonight than when they played the kings and Anaheim. I would actually attribute it to the fact that they have been playing on overclock mode for the past 5 or so games, they just looked exhausted out there. unfortunately its not getting any better with our crazy schedule.

 

Also that line of bernier elias Henrique just has no chemistry what so ever. I don't expect any of them to produce like that.

Pete said they 'battled hard'. I hope he doesn't actually believe that.

Deluding yourself blaming this loss on Henrique. You are aware the other team can make plays to right?

No comment in this game. I'm too busy pouring myself a drink.

Luckily we only have 21 hours to dwell on it before we have a shot to put it behind us.

Meh, games like this happen.  You get 10 a year.  The Devils haven't had one of these in a while.  It can't spread to tomorrow, though.

 

Agree that Henrique has to pick his game up.  NJ keeps switching him from center to wing because he's just not able to get things going.

Well, at least my daughter got to see a goal at a Devils game this year.  That's one in three games.  Outstanding.

 

Out of 30 games, the Devils have now scored one or less in 11 of them.  Awesomeness. 

 

I'm not losing my optimism, but my patience with this bunch is wearing thin.  11 friggin' shots on goal in 60 minutes?  fvcking really?!

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.
