Great game. The Team USA selectors should be forced to watch that game and send Andy an apology letter. Forget the offense, he owned Ovie out there. I wonder if Andy has blown off USA hockey in some capacity and angered them.

This is starting to look like a playoff team. Incredible come from behind win against a good team.

 

We've been beating a lot of good teams this year.  The problem is, we've been losing to bad teams as well.

 

Not seeing anything yet to make me think this team will pull away from NHL .500.  Not unless the goalie play improves.  It won't if Marty keeps getting this many starts...he's just too inconsistent.

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?

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.

Gotta say, it's great to see them having fun like this.

If we've learned anything, it's that happy athletes play better. These guys are really starting to come together as a team

Zubrus-Zajac-Jagr dominated on the scoresheet and possession numbers. Absolutely fantastic game by them.

one way to fix it: start the good goalie but if that's not gonna happen, they're willfully putting themselves on the bubble. It's a joke when you see 4 goals on 19 shots when you have ONE OF THE BEST GOALIES IN THE LEAGUE BY ANY METRIC sitting behind arguably the worst goalie in the league

Would anyone care to post a brief synopsis of what happened after we went up 1-0? I actually saw the first goal while I was in the NHL store, but it was all scoreboard watching for me after that lol.

 

We pretty much dominated them the whole game possession wise and shots wise.  The Caps just took advantage of their opportunities.  On top of that, Marty wasn't good at all.

We're not exactly a scoring machine with Cory in net which imo almost nullifies any Cory over Marty, Marty over Cory talk.

He has 13 of those points against his former teams in 10 games.  The other 20 have come against everybody else in 27 games.  There's only one game where he didn't register a point against a former team.

He's at .902 in save% for the season.  He finished at .901 last season.  He was at .903 and .908 the two seasons before that, but he had prolonged stretches of strong play in both of those seasons...it's been a different story last year and this. 

 

That being said, as much as I support Cory getting more playing time, at some point he's got to stop giving DeBoer excuses to keep going back to Marty.  Schneider hasn't been lights-out either as of late.

How will we gain any consistency in net if neither goalie gets any consistent playing time?  Cory has to be the guy.  I can't think of any game where Cory cost us a win except for the game against Vancouver.  Marty has cost us a few already.

So in other words, had we lost, this was a jelly jar game. Thank God they came back lol.

Brodeur: 21 GP 11-8-2, 2.38 GAA, .902 SV%, On-Ice SH%: 11.1%
Schneider: 16 GP 4-7-5, 2.03 GAA, .915 SV%, On-Ice SH%: 6.7%

Crazy that the Devils SH% is 4.4% higher when Brodeur plays than Schneider. Feel bad for Schneider.

Great win.  Team played excellent except for a few breakdowns, and while I don't think Brodeur was strong by any means, he wasn't horrible.  Boucher had an excellent game,  2nd and 4th lines were the ones that struggled - I like some of what Tedenby did in transition (set up one great chance), but it looks like he is just guessing out there offensively and defensively.

 

Interesting that Merrill had 23 minutes and Gelinas 16, even with NJ trailing for long stretches of the game.  Merrill just does not make many mistakes back there and he comes up with an elegant play to break the puck out of the zone or to deny a scoring chance to an opposing forward.  He is going to be really good, I think - think Paul Martin.

 

Schneider at some point has to start playing like one of the top goalies in the league.  If he does, the crease will be mostly his.  He's given up 3 goals in each of the last 4 starts.

And there it is...opposing goalies are putting up an .889 save% in games when Marty starts, and .933 when Schneider starts.  Yeah, you can have your share of meh and bad games and still win, if the guys at the other end are not stopping pucks as well.

Great game to watch. Wish I could have been there... Marty was a obviously weak and it's amazing how the goal support dichotomy continues with him and Cory.

Greene is just a fvcking beast what can I say, and yes zidlicky earned his paycheck today on the offensive end, so I'll eat some crow on him tonight.

Wish we could have avoided giving Washington a point but you gotta love the team battling back from down 2 goals.
