Goalie bullsh!t drama aside, if this team wants to even sniff the playoffs, they better start matching the opposition's intensity each and every game from here on out. It doesn't matter who the opponent is -- Red Wings, Hurricanes or whomever -- most of those teams are GOING FOR IT. ... The Devils need to do the same.

But he doesn't sh!t the bed every night. He is coming off an unreal stretch.

 

Brodeur on the other hand couldn't even play in the AHL. He is atrocious, unclutch, and just plain delusional. We can not let him continue to drag us down into the mud anymore. Nail his ass to the bench, give him 5mil under the table to pay off Melanie for the next 10 years, just keep this abject disaster OFF THE ICE

Awesome job by Ruutu tonight, he skates a lot better than I thought he did, hopefully he plays his way into staying with Zajac and Jagr. Henrique and Elias have just been unreal lately, love watching them play. Nice of Brunner to finally score but that turnover he had was horrendous. 
 
The D really had to step up to eat minutes with Gelinas only playing 3:26 in the final 2 periods (understandably so given the score and lack of PP's). 
 
By no means was Brodeur good, I'm not saying that at all, but I don't think he was as awful tonight as some others in the thread. The Semin goal was bad but the 1st goal was a bit of a fluke, then they had a PPG, and SHG where he was left out to dry. Overall 29 saves on 33 shots so he kept them in it. I still don't think he should get the next game or much playing time at all, but I have a feeling he will at least get the next start.

Marty earn the right to start on Tuesday against Philly. We can't take a chance that Cory is through with his Bad starts.

The first goal is not on him at all

 

The PPG is a makeable save. He saw and was set for that shot all the way.

 

The Semin goal is the typical softie backbreaker that everybody saw coming. Marty lazy, slow, again doesn't cover up down low.

 

The SHG wasn't an easy save, but Nathan Gerbe is a midget and not a top flight goal scorer. For all the whining and crying Brodeur does can you come up with a save there and not leave the door open for a Canes comeback

 

Brodeur did nothing to help us today. Absolutely zilch.

Due to it possibly(fingers crossed) being his last season, Marty will start in the last games of the season against the Rangers, Montreal and Philly at the very least.

No, this team is trying to make the playoffs. His legacy starts are over

Even though the Devils gave up 4 tonight, I don't think the Devils were that bad defensively.  I blame 3 of the 4 goals on Marty.

 

1. WTF Marty?!  Good play by Skinner though.

2. Soft

3. Can't blame Marty on the breakaway goal.  Those forehand to backhand breakaway shots are difficult to stop, especially when they go top shelf.

4. Awful goal by Marty.

 

BTW, my record for games I attend is now 10-2-3.

 

Henrique, Zajac, and Ruutu were beasts tonight!  I also liked Salvador, Elias, Clowe, Brunner, and CBGB tonight.  Thought they all had good games.  Jagr and Zubrus were ok.  Am I missing anybody?

We don't have any more games with Montreal.  He'll probably start Philly on Tuesday solely because of the 3-0 record even though if it was Cory sitting at 3-0 after Marty had two great months he'd be playing Marty regardless.

great job by the offense tonight -

 

henrique has been a man possessed lately - everything is going in for him.

zidlicky also had a great game.

ruutu worked nicely with jagr and zajac tonight

 

ryder - still nothing - seems a step slow with the shot which is an issue.

 

i love getting 4+ goals a game and all, but the defense has really been an adventure. as much as i'd like to blame sal, merrill and gelinas have taken a step back. i think volchenkov should draw in for philly and see where they go from there.

Zidlicky made a couple of really good plays (including making a good pass for the primary assist) immediately prior to the Ruutu game winner.

Sal was disgustingly awful on Semin's goal.  Even worse than Marty, who was bad himself on that goal.

Convert that man into a forward. It worked with Brent Burns maybe it can work for Eric. Why not try that experiment for a game or two since Ryder and Brunner are doing zilch at even strength. Also frees up Larsson....ehhh nvm I forgot about Volch.
