He saved our asses... good job Lou, keeping him that is.

He's too slow to play, but somehow he made some excellent plays.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

His diving play on St Louis? on the rush saved a goal.

agree - i don't exactly feel safe with him out there on the ice, but he's been pretty huge nonetheless. i really liked the way he took an outright run at martin st. louis in the 3rd.

When White is ready to come back, I think we sit Oduya. Johnny wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. He's making a lot of blind passes when pressured. Scares the sh!t outta me.

He looks a little off and the play on St. Louis that lead to the tying goal was brutal but I'm glad he's still around.

Matvichuk plays every game from here on in unless he craps out (gets tired) - Lou said he was playing tonight no matter what before it was official Whitey was out, and Oduya's been last in icetime every game this series. Matvichuk played 27:03, third on the team behind Jamie (27:41) and Martin (27:25) :blink:

He's a heart attack on skates. I agree. He should sit if White is ready.

Greene had a great game towards the end.

I would lose Oduya.

No way Greene should sit, he's very composed out there. Sit Oduya.

Agreed. Considering the circumstances I think both Greene and Oduya have both played well. Greene has been the better of the two for sure. There were a couple times tonight behind Marty when he got pressured by the Tampa players but stayed calm and helped get the puck out of the zone.

Oduya has been a little scary out there but I won't throw the kid under the bus. For the most part he has played well for the Devils this season. I'd sit him in place of matty but not because he's been playing bad

Yes he did! Matvitchuk looked fresh and hit everything in his way tonight. Played some good D tonight along with Andy Greene who has become one of my favorite players. He is solid this kid and better than Oduya.

Towards the end of the game, Greene looked great. Whenever the puck got dumped in, he did a great job of using the net and the other D-man to get a successful breakout going. Solving the problem with the breakouts just a little bit is a big help. No way he sits if White comes back.

I thought Matty played an excellent game considering he has been out all year . He did have a presence on the ice and he made a great poke check on St.Louis and he kept a play alive at the blueline by throwing his body. I think he'll just get stronger. He put a few nice hits out there too. When we get White back....and he plays to his potential...we will finally have some intimidation out there.


MArty must be tired or in a funk...can;t remember him looking this bad 3x in a row...although he did make some timely saves...but 12 goals in 4 games?...geeze..

I am thrilled that we won tonight....
