You gotta stop with this "being in people's" head nonsense. I for one would have definitely said that should have clearly been a no goal. Reading the responses on the Flyers board on HF, many feel it was the correct call. You seriously don't give Devils fans enough credit here that if the roles were reversed we would be bitching about the call. I don't believe that for a second. We're a rational group despite the fact we tend to be immature.
Anyways, from watching that game, I didn't notice any real good scoring chance the Flyers had. As I said, that 3rd period was a defensive clinic, and Marty never had to make any really hard saves. The only hard save he did have to make was that glove save through a screen of like 4 guys. I personally believe the Flyers never had as many shots as they were credited with last night. It definitely only felt like 25 at most. Flyers also had 6 powerplays. And some of those were gifts from the refs.
I'm not even going to acknowlege the bolded, as it's so off-base it's comical.
Clearly a lot of Flyer fans in attendance were plenty ticked about the goal being waved off. I think it's reasonable to say many Devils fans would've felt the same way under similar circumstances (initially anyway)...especially if they were given even more of a glimmer of hope when Toronto was consulted re: whether or not the goal should count.
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.
