These number junkies told us months ago the Devils would start winning these? Well what you don't see in numbers is the psychological effects of this prolonged shootout slump. The Devils have now set the record for most consecutive shootout losses in NHL history. Don't tell me it wasn't on their mind right as this thing started because it was

 

The Devils have bad 1 on 1 players, and the shootout is now "in their head"

gotta start practicing the shootout more


According to the goalie apologists and stat a$$holes around here, you can't practice the shootout yet many other teams do.

What a joke. Their utter futility in the skills competition is not only embarrassing it's historic.

Another stolen point. How many more of these can NJ get by with only stealing 1 of the 2 points and still hope to make the playoffs? Eventually this will be as useless as if they just lost in regulation.

HAHAHA. I sort of enjoy this in some sort of sick masochist way. This team is so pathetically unskilled in the shootout that I hate/love seeing them humiliated EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

 

Would've loved the 2 points, but if they can't score in the OT it's already a destined loss. It would be funny if it weren't so utterly embarrassing.

More importantly, you can't practice it according to the coach either.

How can you?These players score 5 on 5, 4 on 4 etc. They know how to deke with the ice full. They know how to score with players trying to take their head off. Yet they can't when no one is trying to take the puck away? Sound a more of a mental bullet in their head at this point? Yeah

if this team was even 4-4 in shootouts we'd have 55 points and be above the wild card

Like they do every other fvcking drill in practice, by just doing it on their own goalies. Do it until every skater has scored at least once.

Stop taking the damn apologist route every friggin time.

Both Devils shooters put themselves in situations with large parts of the net wide open....then shot it where it wouldn't go in.

Practice may help putting yourself in a good situation, but there's not much to be done about a NHL player missing open net.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

He could've stopped a few in the shootout as well. But I feel horrible dumping on him for a skills competition after his brilliant play in regulation

Simple- spend 20 minutes at the end of practice practicing the shootout. 'Practicing the shootout' is pretty self-explanatory. Its fvcking break-away practice. All it is. It couldn't hurt, that's for damn sure.
