Not only did we have snow, but also my wife and I have decided not to go. It will almost certainly be a blowout in favor of the Devils.

 

lol they were 5-1 with three shutout wins (plus the Blues game) in games I wasn't at before tonight, so I was convinced this was going to be another shutout.  But the Devils' late game curse was stronger than my reverse jinx.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

I'm exhausted don't know about you guys, I wish I could just shut hockey off in my mind.

 

I'm too pissed to sleep.  I'm just so fed up with it being such a fvcking fight for this team to score some fvcking goals. 

 

 

Now that i take a step back to look at it...Its fine that we lost, im sure we had great corsi stats and possession for this game, its all that matters.  :thumbsup:

 

 

Yeah, I definitely don't want to hear about any of that crap tonight, even if it makes sense.

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.

This was clearly the best game played of the 3 - NJ hits 3 posts and generates tons of scoring chances besides and loses.  This wasn't a 19 shot game where NJ tried to play it in the neutral zone.  They had another dominant 3rd period where Colorado got maybe 1 scoring chance until the shift of death and then they can't clear the puck and it ends up in the goal.  Then things spiral out from there.  It's not DeBoer's fault at all.

I'd say it's Schneider. I usually don't like post game reactions such as the destroying of his goalie stick but this team needed to see that. At least someone on this team actually cares.

Yeah I lost it after this one. Still not fully calmed down. Three games in a row of this fvcking garbage will do that to you.

It would almost make this **** worth it if one of the beat writers had the nerve to ask Pete if three games qualified as a tendency, after his hissy fit the other night.

 

No, it would be worth it if one of our beat writers had the nerve to ask Lamoriello the tough questions, too.

Outplayed a great team and lost. This Devils team just drives you crazy. Another game where Cory gives up only 1 in 60 minutes and it's not good enough.

No, I caught the sarcasm. 

 

Yeah, they're doing a lot of things right, but they're only 3-3-3 in their last nine.  I'm trying to remain optimistic, because there ARE some good things happening, but damn this team just keeps finding ways to leave points on the table.  When does it end?

Don't really know how people can turn this around on PDB. Should Gionta have been out there late? No, but a team of better finishers would have been up by at least three. All we could eek out was one goal. I say it all the time, DeBoer puts the players in position, he just can't shoot the puck for them

They play the extra attacker situation as if they're on the pk.  That I think is the problem.  They have to play it as if it's a 5 on 5 situation.  They let the opposition possess the puck in hoping a missed pass, or missed shot will get them possession.  It's stupid.  Another thing.  They can't be afraid to ice the puck.  Stop with this chip it off the boards BS.

well Salvador has to be subtracted. Another good offensive player needs to be added. Not Ovechkin good...but like David Perron/Matt Moulson type (doesn't have to be them specifically) Perhaps having one of them means we're up at least 2-0 in the final minute and take this one home

 

we need to win some future shootouts

 

we need to not lead the league in posts (I swear we must)

 

Ryder is still visible, but the puck is not going in for him. It has to start.

 

we have to keep soldiering on with Cory.

 

Gionta is not allowed on the ice in the last 5 minutes of a game

Tonight was simply a case of bad luck.  3 shots off the INSIDE part of the post, and a puck trickling on the goal line is the epitome of bad luck.

as crazy as it sounds I was almost hoping they'd tackle the puck carrier at that point and just take a penalty, take a time out to re group. I have a lot more faith of them killing a 6-4 fresh for 1:30 up 1-0 then watch them absolutely Carolina'd at the end like that.

how about Tampa/Florida last year, back to back same sh!t happens.

 

Seems to happen to us a lot huh.

In the Dallas and Nashville games, it was a case of one of our guys knocking the puck right to an opposing player.  All 3 of these blown leads are a result of bad luck imo.

 

In those two Florida team games, the opposition was allowed to just pass the puck to their guy and tap it into an empty net both times.  These two games were a result of sh!tty defense.

The rotten luck never seems to end with them.   

 

Anyway, 33 points needed in their last 25 GP to get to 92 points.  16-8-1, 15-7-3, or 14-6-5.  Basically, they have an 0-3-0 slump and they're screwed.  And they need a 7-2 type run in the worst way.  I'm starting to think they need to bring a new body in here, just because...but I don't see Lou making that kind of move.  Nothing major, anyway.

All of those records are very doable considering the light schedule the team has.  But something has to change.  They can't keep blowing these leads.
