The Ducks player that scored was already going to the net before the fluke bounce with Henrique two steps behind. Due to the fluke he was in the right place with Henrique out of the play. It was a perfect combo of fluke bounce/lazy zone play.

it was a turnover in the neutral zone. 90% of the time that happens you will have an odd man rush the other way.

well consider us and the ducks even then after zajac a "goal" a few weeks ago...

Dammit...at least they got a charity point.

 

Speaking of the Rangers...another terrific game by Lundqvist.  Rangers now 1-4-2 on that 9-game homestand, with two left to play.  Brutal.

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.

Yep, let's blame Schneider guess that makes sense.


Corey really was a little slow on that but if it wasn't for Merrill's stick the puck prob would have hit his pad.

5 of 6 points in the last three games. I'll take that.

That loss was 100% on Deboer. You throw Gionta out there in OT against really good players during 4 on 4 hockey, and you will get burnt 8/10 times. We know Gionta is here forever, but this is actually why the people talk about wanting Gionta out of the lineup can't stand him here. It's because Deboer uses him like crazy. As a defensive specialist late in the game? WTF? OT 4-ON-4? WTF!?!?!?. What the hell was he doing on that shift. A second forechecker giving the Ducks all that space to break out. 

 

I'm not even sure Gionta knows how to play 4-on-4. Can we end the Elias and Jagr OT shifts too. These guys don't play together and have zero chemistry. Deboer did that with Kovy and Elias last few years. It was always a mess.

We got a point and the Rangers and Carolina both lost in regulation. Could be worse. The Brunner injury hurts.

Meh, overtime is such a crapshoot. You put your skilled/fast players on the ice and see what sticks. I really felt more uncomfortable with Boucher out there than I did with Gionta.

I feel like the Devils were fortunate to get a point out of this game. I feel bad for Schneider, another start where the team didn't help him a whole lot.

 

Brutal outing for Gelinas and Zidlicky the whole game, especially trying to breakout in OT vs. 1 forechecker. I also enjoyed Gionta joining in Zubrus on the forecheck against 1 D, completely forgetting that it was 4v4. Complete chaos. I wasn't a fan of the Zidlicky re-signing in the summer, and my contempt for him just grows by the game. Unfortunately, I can see him staying in the line up game in and game out no matter what he does. I can live with mistakes by Gelinas since he's a rookie and actually does offer something offensively which Zidlicky doesn't.

Not too pissed, only because we tied the game late in the 3rd against one of the best teams in the NHL. That being said, the only players that really played well were Zajac, Greene, Fayne, Ryder and Henrique. The rookies had a rough night but there was also some unlucky bounces. 

 

With that being said- STEPHEN GIONTA IN OT? I swore that was Loktionov but after a rub of the eyes, I realized it was Stephen F. Gionta.... Good riddance, Deboer

He left the game and didn't put any weight on his leg. TG said he went home and will be re-evaluated

It looked like a knee injury. It was a knee-on-knee hit in the corner.

I feel bad for Schneider. Devils shoot at 10.9% in front of Brodeur, just 6.7% for Schneider who is 4-7-5 w/ a 2.03 GAA and .915 SV%. Plus it seems like the D has made some costly mistakes his last 2 starts. Gotta be frustrating for him.

lol Gionta had nothing to do with the OT goal but let's kill Pete for the two rookie d-men screwing up because the scapegoat was on the ice.

 

Funny how Gionta's so hated here and yet at the arena he got practically a standing ovation when he was announced back in the lineup the other night.

If you want to blame Pete for anything, blame him for not calling a timeout when the old man line was gassed in the second period after Gelinas's icing.  That was a glaring screw-up by Pete.  But Gionta didn't cause Gelinas to get abused by Palmeri or Merrill to tip the puck past Cory in the OT.

I don't hate Gionta, but he shouldn't be seeing overtime ice, and thats regardless of tonight's outcome.

PDB doesn't know when to use timeouts. We seem to give up crucial goals after icings.

If Gionta didn't have a better brother, hardly anyone would care about his being out.  There wasn't much DeBoer could do - he had already benched Loktionov and Brunner was hurt, so unless you want to double shift someone, you don't have much of a choice.  Obviously that was a terrible forecheck but Gelinas was awful on that play and he wasn't very good all night long.

I have to rant.

 

No, it's not about the game. First time I've been to a Devils home game in two years because of college, and while it wasn't what I wanted I had a blast.

 

IF YOU ARE A CASUAL FAN, and I mean someone who knows what "the devils" are and knows what a "hockey puck" is, and not much else, SHUT THE HELL UP AT THE GAMES.

 

I sat next to a woman. She was mid-twenties, reeked of booze and cigs, talked with a thick Long Island accent. Regardless, she wasn't too terrible in the beginning. Polite, at least. But, as soon as the puck dropped, until the end of the game, she used one. fvcking. word.

 

"Dangle"

 

Incorrectly, correctly, awkwardly... didn't matter. "Why didn't you dangle him, Henrique (hen-ree-kay)", "ugh Marty would have dangled that puck better than Chris Schneider", "DANGLE IT MEN, COME ON, DANGLE IT!". "That wasn't a foul, he was just dangling him". "DANGLE IT!" "Why is this so hard to score, just dangle more."

 

It wouldn't be so cringe-worthy if she did it every ten minutes. Every period. Something like that. No, though, it was literally every single play. She would bounce back and forth between yelling her favorite hockey phrase and explaining to her friend what she meant. "If he dangled that puck, we wouldn't have had an offsides foul, and probably would have scored". The worst, by far, was when she said "there's always the fourth quarter".

 

If you're learning the game, that's awesome. It's an awesome game, it really is. But for christ's sakes, do it quietly. Ask questions. Don't say the fvcking word dangle.
