I'm sure they'll come out and play the last 20 minutes hard as that's the one thing they do to their credit. It's disappointing because this is the first time in a long time that Brodeur has kept them in a game, maybe even stealing a game up until the first goal. It had to feel good seeing that even from those of us who would enjoy nothing more then his departure.
They've given no one any indication they are capable of winning 10 games at the least from here on out. The game last night was it, IMO. You can point to certain games at certain times and look back when it's over and say "that's the one". That game had to hurt them as a team.
It definitely will never feel bad when Marty plays well. And though I still feel like Cory can and will be a terrific goaltender, let's face it, though it's not all his fault, he couldn't have come up any smaller post-Olympic break than he has so far.
If the Devils lose this game, I still give them a slight chance to go on a run. If they lose their next game to Boston, then they're toast.
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.
