Here's some irony (sort of).  

 

Today was the Miracle on Ice 34 year Anniversary.  

We're playing in the country we beat on this day 34 years ago.  

Today we played the country we beat to clinch the Gold Medal 34 years ago.

Said country avenges their loss from 34 years ago.  :(

haha as if not scoring in shootouts has to do with effort....right

 

Blowing leads has a lot to do with bad luck and bounces.  NJ has scored plenty with the net empty as well, or are we going to forget that?

nope....with winning.If we could put the puck behind the goalie in shootouts,win we might. Watch other teams do it or whichever team is in the shootout against us.

Sorry you don't agree that we suck at holding a lead and suck even more in shootouts.

1. Shootouts are a complete crapshoot.  There is nothing scientific about the success rate of shootouts.  Goalies are the ones in control of shootouts and penalty shots, and the shooters are at the mercy of the goalies.  The Devils are very capable of winning shootouts.

 

2. Every team "sucks" at holding leads then.  The number of leads the Devils blow is basically right there with the leads other teams blow.

Which is my reason one why I wish they would be removed from the game. If they want to do 5 min 4 on 4 then 5 min 3 on 3 fine, but then call it a TIE already. There doesn't have to be a winner every game.

The current Devils are the ultimate proof that shootouts are NOT a crapshoot. It's results are clearly skill based. The debate is whether you think a players individual skill should decide the outcome of a game.

GL today Canada, I have to many potentially gloating swedes at my workplace. :D

Somebody really needs to tell Pierre McGuire that "selling out" is not a compliment. I only saw three of the Olympic games, but in that time I heard him describe players giving everything they've got as "selling out." It's not the only idiotic thing I've ever heard him say, but it might be the MOST idiotic.
