I agree with that. And they're still not beating us. Which tells me if we step it up, we can beat these guys.


Our best players need to be better. Hopefully they have another gear. I'll give the Rangers some credit. They're not going to give this series away. If the Devils want to advance they're gonna have to elevate their play.

Hopefully they will settle down in the 2nd period.

There is one thing that concerns me greatly though. Marty made some great saves that period but it's so obvious he isn't on his game 100% right now. At least to me he isn't. You can just tell in his stance. He's playing very tight which is not a bad thing but when he is firing on all cylinders you'll notice that he just has a much more aggressive stance and takes up more of the net. I don't think it's so much a problem with his own game rather then the fact that he does not trust his defense right now. They're doing a lot of running around out there and I think he's trying to compensate and that is why we're seeing these "off" looking goals.


I agree with you... See my post above. I don't think he looks "tight" I just don't think he has much confidence in his D-men right now. There's no way White should miss that puck getting it out, and Madden has no business getting stuck in no-mans land like he did... and then he doesn't even go down to block it. I think we are just spoiled. Marty is the best positional goalie in the league, but there are broken plays that happen, and given his style, I don't think he gets "lucky" like other goalies. Take game 2 for example... Mottau or someone almost scored on the PP by shooting it wide - it caromed off of a d-man, and just hit Lundquist in the arm and he was looking the other way. It seems with Marty, if a broken play goes on - he doesn't get those saves that just hit him...

This goal was weak, I just don't think that was his fault. Most of the goals that go in on Marty are "weak" - he stops everything he sees 98% of the time. It's just the weird ones he doesn't get because he doesn't play that bullsh!t, cop-out butterfly style that so many guys do.

Damn, almost looked like Mottau shot on Brodeur there.

Callahan takes a penalty. Cash in boys!

Also, how the hell was that icing on US on the powerplay. The Rag deliberately slowed up when he could have played it! :angry:

It's unfortunate on the second goal because a Ranger ran right over Marty during one of the replays while killing the 5 on 3.

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.

Someone needs to take out Sean Avery. Take the 5 and take him OUT. There is NO PLACE for this behavior in a game unless you're admitting that you're a team full of pussies. This impudent behavior cannot be tolerated.

This is insane. I've NEVER seen anything like the refs in this game. It's almost worth the devils just putting down their sticks and leaving the ice in protest. Forfeit because this is -- it's beyond anything I've ever seen. Parise gets a cross check for protecting himself... Avery is allowed to wave his stick in front of Brodeur's face? WTF? Some team is going to hand the rangers their ass
