Has Cory ever won a big game? Just checking.

 

Go **** off with this tonight.  3-35 in shootout attempts this year, can't score against third-string goalies on crap teams - blame the goalie.

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

The Elias attempt was disgraceful and had zero chance of going in. At least try to deke even if it isn't your bread and butter move

 

I don't even have issue with Sislo, he's as good as any at that point. Things were getting thin. I suppose you could've tried Bernier

 

Missed a golden fvcking opportunity to gain a point on Columbus. We gained a point on Detroit but we won't catch them anyway


Go **** off with this tonight.  3-35 in shootout attempts this year, can't score against third-string goalies on crap teams - blame the goalie.

 

The fact that we even scored in the shootout is a miracle

Well, we know what's coming next:

 

A win against the Caps that has us all feeling a little hopeful.

 

A loss against the 'Canes that has us all infuriated.

 

I really hate this team right now.

 

No they'll lose to the Caps who now look like the worst team in the league themselves and a team that quit.  But they'll throw out Holtby or whoever their backup goalie is now and stone us.  Then we'll destroy Carolina on Saturday and wonder where the **** this team was.

Name another elite 33 game backup who then was awful when he got to start. I'll wait

They should never even been in a shoot-out to begin with. The fact they couldn't beat the fvcking Sabres- the worst team in hockey by a wide margin- in regulation even ONCE this season says a lot. Dropping two out of three to the Islanders and Buffalo with the season on the line is disgraceful.

 

They were very fvcking close to coming out of this game with zilch

2 for 8 is not that bad. If they were 5-5 in shootouts this year, I'd be fine with how they performed in the shootout tonight. Obviously, that's not the case. I predict we won't score in the next shootout.

Either way- we know they won't win them both.

Anecdote time: When I was a younger I read this kids' horror book about a girls' basketball team. One day on her way home from school, the main character, Samantha, runs into an old woman in need of help finding her way. Samantha gladly assists her and the old lady rewards her with 3 wishes. Now, Samantha it just so happens, is a terrible basketball player and probably the worst on the the school team. It's not that she is particularly awful at the game, she's just a bit clumsy and has a confidence problem. Anyway, Samantha ends up wishing to be the best player on the basketball team. The next day, all of her teammates begin to lose their skill and/or fall ill. See, what happened is that rather than Samantha's skills improving, those of her teammates deteriorated. Thus, Samantha seemed like the best player on the team.

When the nail in your coffin is hammered in to about the end by a guy with 0 goals on the season in a shootout i think the point is made.

I'm still curious about the depths we can reach here- maybe we can lose to an EMERGENCY back-up next. I mean if we had to face that 43-year old dude who EB'd for Minnesota last night, who'd be confident we'd be able to get more than 3 pucks by him?

Buffalo, the team with the worse record in the NHL, has a longer winning streak this season than the Devils. lol

The Devils didn't beat this team once in regulation in three tries this year. They scored a total of 4 goals against them, 3 in 9 periods of regulation hockey. Let that marinate for a minute or two and then ask yourself if we deserve to make the playoffs.

FWIW the Devils have gotten 7 out of their last 10 points (and haven't lost in regulation in 5 games). That's a step up for them as of late .

It's a good thing the media pays little to no attention to the Devils, because the more you look, the more you're going to see a lot of things about the Devils and laugh. Then wonder how jobs can survive because of it.
