I have one gripe.  There was one fan in the balcony section who kept doing Baumann's chant.  He did it like 4 times throughout the game.  Baumann's chant should be done once per game imo.

Granted I was sleepy and such, but what did Loktionov do to deserve coming off the top line? He got 6:36 with Jagr and Zubrus and that was it.

I thought that line had good energy tonight, actually. Brunner is the right type of player to play with Elias, I think, his speed kind've makes up for what Elias lost and creates another dimension to both of their games. That being said, if Brunner is going to be in a scoring drought, it doesn't really matter how fast he skates, but then again, if you don't give our guys ice time because they haven't been scoring, we wouldn't be able to roll out a team.

and when you're Elias and you miss the entire net on a pretty much open lane at the goal, you're gonna have problems no matter who's on your line

The Elias and Brunner line just kind of existed imo last night. Neither Elias or Brunner had a shot despite having really favorable zone starts (not having a single EV start in the D zone). They should've done better. Not sure how much Zajac or Gionta produced specifically on that line but it definitely wasn't much.

In terms of creating chances I actually thought Clowe-Henrique-Ryder was fantastic. 12 shots total and killed the Oilers in possession despite tough zone starts.

Going back to Brunner, he's lucky he's a RW otherwise he'd have to worry about getting scratched. 7 games without a goal and just 1 assist and 6 shots. This guy is such an enigma.

I introduced my girlfriend to hockey during the Panthers Devils series in 11. After game 1 she was amazed at how exciting it is. Since then, she hasn't missed a game. Not one. If we miss it, we watch it on tape delay. She knows the players better than I do sometimes, and has conversations with me about how livid she is with DeBoer stuffing the talent with slow vets.

And she's attractive.

What the hell, man. I'm lucky.

You are lucky brother. If she has a sister or a friend, tell her to send them my way. :P

And don't forget about the missed breakaway.  He has to bury one of those.  He didn't look all that good last night.

The rest of her family is still in Brazil! Just she and her parents moved over here a few years ago. Tough break ;)

Back to the game... Am I the only one who thought Brunner didn't play all that bad?

Brunner had a real nice rush where he owned Justin Schultz but then inexplicably passed the puck.  He was on the puck a fair amount last night but just didn't do much with it, ultimately.  That's a problem, I think - when playing with Elias and Zajac, Brunner shouldn't be the guy with the puck.

brunner really is just a streaky player.. i dont get the guy he goes a few games in a row being hot and then its like he goes on vacation for a while.. everyones inconsistency is whats killing us.

well he scored a goal, so, there was that.

 

elias/ lokti or jj/ just makes sense with brunner as a line; you can switch elias back and forth from center to wing.

 

more line shuffling from Debo just looks awkward.

I hope we see more of that shot he has.

 

like tonight even.

Did we hit 3 posts?  Good god that means we've hit 6 posts in the past 2 games?  The Devils should be playing 3 bar.

I think they hit 4 in the Colorado game, so 7 in two games. I always say that if the objective of the game was to hit the posts and crossbar, we'd lead the league in scoring.

All the posts against Colorado were shots on the inside part of the post too.  UGH!  I really think they should keep track of post shots.

was it in 120?? There's a season ticket holder who is an absolute TROLL who would rather be a comedian or do every single generic chant instead being an intelligent hockey fan. He does the Baumann Chant 4-6 times a game. Section 120 is a zoo, idk why I still have season tickets there. He's also the guy who screams Crosby Watches after that god awful chant.

Yeah the Phailures scouts are definitely there to scout Edmonton. I heard they wanted a look at Edmonton's goalie tonight. :P

 

:giggle:

 

Yea though, obviously EDM-PHI discussions. The reason the Flyers came to us is because EDM doesn't exactly make their way over here every week.
