They worked hard, but they don't work smart.   First game I've seen since right after the Olympics and they looked like they regressed a bunch

Only an idiot thought this game was winnable. Just look at the karma of the season. This game was written in the stars as a loss. I think we do have a chance against scrambly Toronto though

The Rags got shots to the net while the Devils didn't.  It's that simple.

What a fvcking ridiculous penalty. Forget about the fact that it probably was a dive, he just walked over Greene's stick and fell! Greene literally did nothing to cause that.

you are a homer. Dont worry though you're not alone- somehow there's a ton of ppl here that will complain about that call

I actually came into this thread to see who would complain about that call. It was a good call. If we were in the other side you wouldn't doubt that call for a sec.

It sucks we lost but hold ourselves to higher standards. Dont make excuses. It's not the refs. We don't have anybody that can finish and we need to hold our team responsible- expect better dont make excuses

Tough loss. Pretty good D tonight but our lack of offense killed us again. No time to think about this one. Another big game tomorrow and if we don't come through then our season is almost certainly over

Is it really necessary to use the word "idiot" in this case?  

 

The Leafs are definitely having problems right now.  They're on the verge of 4 straight losses if Montreal hangs on.

Well, Montreal did us a solid and beat the Leafs in regulation.  Now we've GOT to do the same tomorrow if we're gonna stay alive.

The Jagr crosscheck call was worse.  That was a legit trip by Greene.  Nash did sell it though.  

 

Bottom line is, the Devils need to hit the net.  They missed the net far too many times, and shot into skates and sticks too many times.  Rangers are good at blocking shots, and that played a part, but when you have an open lane to the net, you have to fire it on net.  The Rags are a perfect team for Lundqvist because they do a great job at keeping the puck to the outside.  Lundqvist plays so deep in the net that under normal circumstances you can try and pick a corner on him.  But since the Rags force everything to the outside, it's much harder to do that.

I guess no Devils postgame show tonight on MSG+ -- just a bunch of Rangers interviews.

 

Edit: OK, I see now, it's Hockey Night Live! Still though, where's the Devils coverage?

LOL, His "special sauce" has expired. I'm sure he'll bring back Brian Gionta, though.

You are literally the worst piece of crap ever.  And that is saying something, as this board is loaded with top grade douches.  YOU my friend, are the KING of the Douche.

 

I like the cut of your jib.

I've reached the acceptance stage at this point.  Especially if this team isn't going to give effort in must-win games (like in Detroit, the first period of the Florida game, in Tampa, against Boston and the first two periods tonight), what's the sense of stressing about it anymore?  Last year's piece of **** team had more mental toughness than this year's team.

"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

This team played fine. There was urgency. It just isn't very talented. This isn't an underachieving team or a poorly coached team. This is a team lacking elite talent. It's a team that misses Kovalchuk and Parise, and even Clarkson some nights.

 

You should have reached acceptance a long time ago with this team. I feel bad for anyone who hasn't. This isn't the 11-12 Devils disappointing night after night.

Nowadays you can't get very far unless you have at least two bonafide franchise players. Even with Jagr, this team has none. Lou needs to make an effort to get at least one this offseason.

Absolutely. Tonight I thought they played their asses off. They forechecked like demons to no avail time after time. What do you want them to do? Skate faster than they can? Shoot better? That's talent, not effort.

I think for a team like this year EVERYTHINNG would have had to go right for them to have a chance. Nothing ever clicked at once. When the vet defensemen played strong in the corners, there was a rookie caught in a pinch. When we had a young D make a great play, a veteran would get blown by next time down. When we got goaltending, we couldn't score. When we didn't get goaltending, we found ways to come up just short.

I'm starting to come around on this team, to be honest. This is a rag tag group of mostly no names and aging veterans who lost two cornerstone players in two years, and haven't added a player of either magnitude to replace them - and still managed to give us hope for this long.

We just need to be patient. We are two thirds of the way to being a contender again. Goaltending is there with Schneider, D corps is as stocked as ever. We need a big forward talent or two and that's something that takes time to develop or acquire. Still, I think our situation is a lot ore positive then we are giving ourselves credit for. The rangers, at full strength, the best they've been in years - sacrificing part of their future to get there- beat us by one damn goal. Not to mention we won the season series.

Keep on keeping on. I wholeheartedly believe well be a contender next year
