Wow, Cangialosi said tonight (Jan. 31, Devils-Predators) that Elias' OT goal versus the Stars was his first since December 2008. That's a little over five years ago. He now has 16 OT goals, good for second place in the NHL all-time. Jagr is first all-time with 18 OT goals. Five years ago, Patty was either tied with Jagr (who was out of the league at the time) for the all-time lead or one behind him; I can't remember which.
Either way, it's amazing that Elias went that long without scoring in OT and still ranks second all-time.
Speaking of #26...14 goals to 400, 23 assists to 600, 37 points to 1000, 69 games to 1200. Provided he stays healthy, he gets to all of those numbers sometime next year. He could possibly get the 400-600-1000 milestones all in the same game...that would be a hell of a game to go to.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
