To people trying to calm the other people down: why bother? everyone has there own way of dealing with this and I guarantee you won't change the people who are quitting's opinions. Although I also find nonsensical comments like "CLEMMENSEN SHOULD PLAY OT" to be a bit.. well.. insane, as well, you and I both know that arguing is going to be useless.

It's going to be difficult, but the Devils could easily be back in Carolina with this series all tied up.


True that.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Don't blame Klee on that turnover. He was getting hooked the entire way up the ice but the experts would say another fantastic defensive play by Brind'Amour.


I agree. The real beakdown of this play is that Paul Martin is heading to the bench before Klee has moved the puck up to the forwards. That is why Wallin had all that ice.

The Canes played better than us AGAIN and the scoreboard reflected that. Shot 30-9 in the last two periods???? COME ON!! Ward isn't breaking a sweat out there!!!

I thought Klee and Hale were our best players tonight.

GO DEVILS!!!

If *ANYONE* *ANYONE* *ANYONE*... Lukowich, Madden, *ANYONE* tackles Staal, we've stolen home advantage, coming home with the ever-so-needed split.

But really, 12-4 in the second period? For all the hook, holds, bad calls, missed opportunities... the puck was in our end way too much. And 0-4 on the PP, that's not helping.

And worst of all is that we're playing 3 lines. The coaching staff have realized that Janssen-Rasmussen-Wiemer are *NOT* a Crash line and are a liability. They can hit, but they can't score and there were numerous scoring chances against them. So we're going with 3 lines. That just isn't Devils hockey.

Yuck. We had this one all sewn up and it got away.

'Canes sure do like to dive, huh? Quite a few joke calls they got with their flopping. It was nice to see Divey McGee Williams try it again late in the third only to have it fail and have New Jersey rush up the ice to score what should've been the game-winner.

The 'Canes have also gotten just about every lucky bounce in the series so far. Niclas fvcking Wallin - you've got to be kidding. What fluky garbage. I still have faith - guys like Stillman and Whitney can only score on empty nets and fluke bounces, and the Devils' offense can definitely play better, especially with the last change. It's going to be difficult, but the Devils could easily be back in Carolina with this series all tied up.



you know i love ya buddy, but PLEASE stop picking out specific canes that won't hurt us. so far your "who cares" group of weight, whitney, and recchi have done a number on us!

Here's the way I look at it....we were below .500 at the halfway mark of the season (or just about) We lose our coach, 3 out of 3 FA we signed sucked horribly and had to be sent away....our leading scorer was out half the season....he returns, Lou takes over at coach, we have an amazing 11 game run and take our division...continue 4 more games in and sweep are hated rivals whom we had never beat in the playoffs...now we are down 2-0 in a series...something we've never come back from when we don't have home ice advantage...if we pull this off (which we can) and take the Cup.....We'll have one hell of a DVD to buy come next October!!!!

1. The Devils played waaay better than they did in game 1
2. They almost won the game
3. They'll keep getting exponentially better throughout the series until during the 6th and final game the NHL will have to invoke the mercy rule - they'll be beating the Hurricanes 500-1

not that anyone noticed but I think parise played a hell of a game too tonight....

it may come as a shock to people on here... but maybe just maybe the better team is playing better???

Ever hear the old cliche.. make your own breaks??? This isn't a 1997 or 1999 playoff choke... this is a better team beating on them right now

though I will say IF (and that is a BIG IF) they get swept... still think the season is a success ??? Me thinks not....

time to see how the home ice and last change helps

and if you're not gonna play the 4th line... put a Tallackson out there!!

Another thing - I have no idea what MacLean and Lou were doing with the lines but it sure was awful. A lot of times when Pandolfo was out with Gomez and Gionta or Madden with Elias and Langenbrunner. That's going way too far to get 'favorable' matchups by throwing the whole offense out of sync. We were offsides all the time for half the night and I think that's a big reason.

sundstrom please - Whitney scored off two bank shots and Stillman into an empty net. I'm still supremely confident when these guys have the puck in a non-PP situation - or didn't you see them fvck up numerous chances tonight?

This Devil's team as we know it is done.


while i'm not saying it's over at all, anything less than a cup will make the above sentence very sad if it's true. while guys like klee, albelin, and kozlov won't be back, and there may be some departures like marshall, brylin, and rassmussen, it would really hurt to go out with a wimper to the canes and then see elias depart and have contract issues with gionta/gomez lingering while finding out that the 3 bad contracts of the M, M, and M crew might hurt the cap. that would really be the worst thing i could imagine.

Who would of thought that game 2 would hurt more than game 6. Overtime wasn't this bad this time because I just relaxed and said we'll lose this one.

If the Devils are going to lose, hopefully we can have some 4-0 losses because these games hurt too much. Second time this year that the Canes have tied the game late against us.

He is sure so you should be able to get like 250-1 odds or so I'm guessing.
