Brodeur saved the day AGAIN with several key saves in the third and we escaped this one. If we repeat this game performance against the Predators they will eat as alive.




I was thinking the same thing. The devils will get destroyed by the preds if they have a 30 minute letdown like they had tonight.

I think it's the teams they play (chicago and St. louis) they were playing to their level.

Hello all, long time no post.

I was hoping you guys might humor me with some instant feedback.

If you can, have a look at the nhl.com splash page. Right now (1 AM EST) it's a picture of the oh-so terribly named EGG line.

EDIT: Apparently, different users see different splash pages, this is the picture I'm referring to:

http://nhl.speedera....ion_308x194.jpg

Looking at the picture, I think I finally hit on a good name: The three Amigos (or Amigos for short)

1. Obviously it refers to Gomez's hispanic heritage

2. It also, I believe, captures some of Gomez's goofy and humorous nature

3. Of course, it also is a good theme for the entire team, with a nice, cohesive connotation

I posted this at HFbards too.

If you guys like it, I'll start to promote it. If not, we'll have to keep using that godawful "EGG"

:puke:

Bad win. But in the end its a win and that is all tha matters. BRODUER IS BACK. that is all that can be said for sure. In past seasons we were used to ever once in a while broduer stealing one, now its time for being angrye. For me i dont really care, if we give brodeure a chance to steal one and he does thats all we want. Come playoff time, give marty the chance to win a game, and most of the time he will go ahead and win it.

What's so bad about the EGG line?

I seem to recall a certain Avalanche goalie handing away Game 4 to the Devils and keeping Brodeur around long enough to let in some weak goals.

I'd give it to just about anyone given Brodeur's playoff OT record. But, he did win a Gold Medal for Team Canada and has more Cup rings than any active goaltender. I guarantee Ottawa fans haven't forgotten Game 7, for example.


I believe the Gold medal is the biggest reason he got so many votes. That was very special to Canadians.

In the higherarchy of line names, you have the truely cool names that cleverly describe the line in some way (Czechmates, A-Line, Legion of Doom, FLY line) then the quirky ones that still get the message across (J-Line, Vowel Line, GAG line, Maddenbrunner) then there are the horrific mash ups that could only come from idiots like Stan Fischler. The EGG line belongs to this last group. It's a horrible name, and I think that even the players on the line have said that they don't like it.

And I'm sure Elias will be fine with a nickname that celebrates his Hispanic heritage.

Actually what we could do is make a list of names and make a poll and whoever wins I'll see what Scott has to say about it

That was absolutely DISGUSTING and DISGRACEFUL. How can we come in against a team that has scored only 7 goals in their last 6 games and give up 3?!?!? Our defence was almost as non-existant as our offence. TWO SHOTS IN THE SECOND PERIOD I HEARD?!?!? TWO?!?! WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?!?! AGAINST THE ST. LOUIS BLUES!?!?! THAT IS *INEXCUSABLE*!!!!!! Heads should roll for that dispicable display tonight....

The *TWO* bright spots about tonight:
(1) Gionta continues to roll.... some people may be wanting to change their poll choice.
(2) On the GWG, Brylin fended off ALL FIVE Blues skaters. He was in the zone all alone with five people after and him and he carried them around with him until help arrived... and that lead to the goal. This guy is all heart. The Russians would be very wise to add him to their team. Then again he does nothing for the Devils so we should get rid of him ASAP.


Don, this game kind of reminded me of the old Devils. Not the ones from earlier in the season, but the old Devils. Think about the last 4 games. They shut out Philly and Vancouver, but have to go to a shootout against Chicago and then fall asleep and give up a 3-goal lead to the worst team in the league. Look good beating the good teams, have problems with the bad teams. That's the OLD Devils. The ones who used to drive us nuts even when they won.

AmeriCzechs has got to be the cheesiest name I've ever heard. Jester's defense of EGG tells you all you need to know about why EGG rocks.

Until a better name is accepted I guess it's the EGG line.

EGGs don't do anything to anything but EGGs can be cracked, broken, dropped, cooked, mixed into, poached, scrambled, hard boiled, soft boiled. over easy, over hard sunny side up and made into omelettes.

I would like a new name and soon.
