Try to stay optimistic on Henrique...in a blowout there was no reason for him to return

what a game by the devils. I wish they could keep this up for the rest couple games. Not asking for 7 but more like 4 and 5 goals would be amazing to see for the rest of the reason. just cant believe they put up 7 goals on the blues tonight. just unbelievable

Would have been nice to see the blowout in person. Damn blizzard!

Nice win, Brunner coming back where he left off is good.

I was looking at a replay of the game on NHL Gamecentre and the last Henrique shift was near the end of the second. Nothing really bad happened although he took a hit during the shift. As 7 said hopefully its bump or bruise from a previous game that they are resting because of the score.

Cory now down to a 1.88 GAA and up to a save% of .926.  Glad to see him making it damned near impossible for PDB not to keep rolling with him.

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?

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.

2nd in GAA and 7th in SV%, can't wait to see what his GA%- and GSAA looks like tomorrow when Hockey-Reference updates it. Absolutely loving his play!

This is what I imagined from Cory and a main reason why I couldn't imagine the Devils would be in the bottom 5-6 like many said. Little did I know how few starts Cory would have. But when you show to be a goalie that stops pucks over 92% of the time, and then you come into a system that gives up the least amount of shots, your team can't be that awful.

 

Obviously the goal support difference when Brodeur and Cory start is an anomaly, and playing Cory will only benefit this team moving forward.

 

The Devils are finally healthy. Cory has clearly established that he is the best goalie. Hopefully this team goes on a nice run.

.960 save% in his last 7 GP, with a 1.11 GAA.  That's about as flawless as it gets.

PBD was very stubborn about this, but I think he's finally realizing which goalie deserves the go-to guy treatment at this point.  And that's not knocking Marty...not too many guys at 41 play like they did in their prime.

 

Devils are actually kind of on a nice run...9-4-5 in their last 18 GP.  It doesn't feel that good because of the continued shootout futility (0-3 in that stretch), the general offensive struggles, and with one of the losses coming against Buffalo.

Great win.  But I need to let my frustrations out.  

 

Whose decision was it to have the game?  Seriously?!  Those roads were not driveable.  It was state of emergency for a reason!

 

But good on the Devils for offering a free game for those who went.  But I'd be super pissed if I had a ticket to this game and couldn't go.  Only the Devils would still hold a game during a state of emergency.

Clearly fair-weather fans are the cause of all the team's woes! Keep staying at home you can't-doers. Heehee. Isn't it worth the cost of you season tickets to get these guys into the playoffs? :evil:

When's that hotel next to the Rock supposed to be opening up?

It'd be nice to have for nights like tonight..assuming rooms aren't absurdly expensive.

without looking at the schedule I'd imagine they wanted to push the game through tonight since my guess is St. Louis isn't in the area again this season and it might have been difficult with the Olympics and condensed schedule to find a good makeup date. But let's be honest, a Tuesday night game against a western opponent wasn't going to be a big draw, so I don't think the nhl felt too bad about it. If we're consistently selling out they might have a different outlook.

I'd be interested to find out who exactly makes the decision. I'm sure the nhl has the biggest say but I'd imagine both teams have significant input, especially the home team.

Broad street and the turnpike were fine for me heading home. I got home in normal time. I understand people freak out here about snow but this wasn't that bad. They made the right call to play the game. Nobody was forcing anyone to go.
