You are selling them short a bit.

Without Henrique and Elias definitely puts a damper on things.  I think Boucher should get called up.  

 

BTW, Halak should have stopped that shot.  I was completely stunned that shot went in the net.

 

The Devils also have 9 of a possible 12 points in their last 6 games which means they are taking advantage of their light schedule. Philly has only one win in 6 games which means their tough schedule is starting to catch up to them.

Yeah, losing to the Islanders (who to their credit are winning some games lately) and the Sabres in the SO is really taking advantage of a "light schedule". 

 

Let's see what they do in the next four "light" games before making any declarations.

 

And the Flyers had gone 12-3-0 in the 15 games (beating some tough teams in that time) before this 1-3-2 slump.  Think maybe it's simply that they were due for a little valley?

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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?

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.

Oh the team has given up. From my vantage point, it looked like forwards were quitting one by one tonight.

Oh..I know. I could have worded it better. I'm saying you are selling them short because I'd consider that they were down 4 forwards from a normal game. 11 forwards dressed and losing Elias, Henrique and Josefson.

I guess I need to use emoticons. Was just enjoying people saying that the team had quit at the start of the game, and then you have players, one by one, leave the game after that. Obviously, injury related.

No updates tonight. Elias has looked so awful over the last few games that I was kind of hoping something was bugging him.

 

Really scared about the reinforcements for tomorrow, btw. Good chance it could be Sestito and Gionta.

It was hilarious they showed more resiliency when they were down to half a team than they have for most of the last month.

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

Devils are 1-0-0 in games where I get interviewed on the jumbotron. Clearly not just a coincidence.

 

Big win tonight. I'm still amazed they pulled it out when they were essentially running two lines out there late. Just a gutty effort all around.

Henrique got injured too? jeez. Elias-Clowe-Henrique...seemed to all crash down at once

 

spectacular save at the end there by Schneider. He was great all game. Saw plenty of unstoppable shots and...well, stopped them.

Lmfao, well played. :P


The only games they've lost that I've been to were the home opener (which was one of the 856 shoot-out losses this year) and against Philly in OT. They've won all 6 of the other games I went to.

TG is saying Elias (possible head injury) Henrique (groin) and Josefson (foot/ankle)

 

Elias’ equipment remained in the game locker room after the game, so that seemed to indicate he was not going to accompany the team to Carolina for Saturday night’s game. Henrique’s and Josefson’s lockers were empty. - See more at: http://blogs.northje...h.l8rWo15C.dpuf

 

 

fingers crossed it looks like Josefson/Henrique not serious but Elias might have gotten Clowe'd

To this point Cory has faced over 100 more shots than Brodeur and let up 7 less goals. That could be 1-3 more wins if he had more starts this season.

Not picking stuff isn't going to get us anywhere, we'd be in the playoffs easily if we could have won the shootouts.
