The third game in four nights, a very talented Red Wings team -- there are some legit reasons why we didn't play as well in the second and third periods.

However, we dominated OT!

I agree with the consensus -- this game deserved to end in a tie.


Heck, they almost certainly would have won in regulation if they didn't get rooked late in the second period on that bogus Elias penalty. That PP goal changed the game in the third.

Hopefully everything is ok with Elias, he rushed out of the Arena without even speaking to reporters. Maybe the Snow outside had a lot to do with everything.

So was there ever any discussion on what the players are doing nowadays? I'm terribly intrigued by Mike Peluso, he was my favorite player back then and seemed to have dropped off the map. I was shocked to hear he'd be there tonight. He's sure got an interesting look going on...

ANDY GREENE fvck AWFUL TURNOVER

We started off this game incredibly and everything's been slowly falling off all game. Oduya and Greene both had sh!tty plays on defense to allow goals, and Elias's offensive zone penalty hurt us too. Stupid.


To be fair, while the turnover from Greene was bad, if you go back and look at it, his stick was slashed a little which made him give up the puck. It's questionable whether or not that should have been a penalty, but there was definitely a small slash there.

As for the Elias penalty, that was quite a job by Lidstrom. He held back Elias, tried to push him out of the play, fell in the process, and somehow Elias got called for it. That's why Elias was shaking his head with a smile on his face as he was looking at the officials. That was an absolutely horrendous call.

It was so nice to see some of the old players from the 1995 SCC tonight. Got to meet Mike Peluso after so many years after he left the Devils and retired. Just the memories we are talking about and told him it still chokes me up when i looked over at the Devils bench and saw him just balling out crying towards the end of Game 4 of the SCF. he just laughed and I said. "hey Mike you were not the only one balling and crying their eyes out." It was cool to meet the rest of the players as well that were there tonight. such great memories.

As far as the game the Devils blowing a 3-1 lead was not very good but this Detroit team has a good PP and know how to comeback just like this Devils team. It was a good game and too bad we don't have 10 minute OT instead of the SO. The Parise SO goal was again insane and the GWSOG by Elias was a beauty. Really suprised to see Zetterberg not score in the SO, but it was a nice save by Brodeur. Bertuzzi, don't know what the hell he was trying to do on that spin -o-rama shot he took in the SO. LOL! Devils got the win and the two points considering they played on back to back nights so well deserved.

Maybe we will see Danis play now in Buffalo with Brodeur playing the last 6 plus games in a row. Danis has to play sometime and too long of a layoff is not good. If not in Buffalo, maybe home on Wednesday night vs. Carolina or Friday night vs. Florida. Danis IMO, should play one of those three next games. Brodeur definitely playing vs. Philadelphia on Saturday night.

I agree that that play sucked and probably changed the complexion of the game. But I give the Red Wings credit for pulling it off. Like someone else just said, that was a savvy move by Lidstrom to draw the penalty, and it was an equally good veteran play on the resulting goal.

So was there ever any discussion on what the players are doing nowadays? I'm terribly intrigued by Mike Peluso, he was my favorite player back then and seemed to have dropped off the map. I was shocked to hear he'd be there tonight. He's sure got an interesting look going on...

I think during his interview with Peluso between the first and second periods, Cangiolosi mentioned that he is a scout for the Oilers. ... Mike still looks like he could lace 'em up.

The second goal that Holmstrom scored the PPG to make it 3-2 Devils was BS too. He slashes and backs into Brodeur and no goaltending interference. The guy does this for a living, was called for the very same penalty in the 1st, yet he keeps on doing it and the refs let it play on and it almost costed the Devils this game. Brodeur actually flipped out on the ref over Holmstrom interferring with him in the crease. Glad someone knocked Holmstrom's helmet off on that play too. Someone should have knocked his lights out too. man do we miss Clarkson for this game as he would have done something about Holmstrom in that crease. Actually the 1st two goals Brodeur was interfered with especially the second goal by Holmstrom was just a joke. The Elias penalty was the icing on the cake. Bad calls and bad non calls in this game for sure.

Indeed. Before the lock-out when defensemen could play defense, Holmstrom was useless. D-men used to be able to clear the crease by beating his ass, he never used to stand in the crease like he does now.
But now that this new NHL penalizes defense, forwards get away with liberties that make the game a joke. Goalies are getting run and interfered with and no penalty on the forward. Forwards can also x-check D-men and leave their feet while chasing a dump-in and mash the D-men against the glass, no call. The trapezoid enables Forwards so much liberties it's sickening.
IN the old NHL players like Crosby,Malkin and AO would not nearly be as effective as they are now, they'd be clobbered by good D-men.
Lidstrom's embellishment with Elias was embarrasing, Lid's should have gotten an unsportsman like call for diving.

In 223 row 7 for every game back then--it was unreal,to this day I never heard a louder crowd.After hanging out for awhile taking it all in,who was outside on top of a bus screaming and going crazy but the Hanson Brothers--That whole cup run was great,I'll never forget randy Mckays game winner in ot against Boston.


Get out! I was in 223 row 8 for all of 95. Still my favorite section of all time.

I agree. If it was the old NHL, there is no way Holmstrom stays in the crease like that. Stevens and Daneyko would have destroyed his ass! More and more this new NHL is really turning into a creme puff league, which is sad. They need to protect the goalies more than what we saw last night with all the interference on Brodeur.

Elias was struck in the face with a puck during the game and it seemed to sting him pretty well, perhaps it had something to do with 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.

My how the times change. The Devils had the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals stolen from them with all those bullsh!t "in the crease" disallowed goals. Hell, Billy Guerin had three of four taken away from him for having a toe in the crease. Of course if Slava Fetisov doesn't deflect Stepanie Matteu's centering pass past Brodeur we would still be listening to that beautiful ring to the 1940 cheer!

Guys like like Cam Neely and Tim Kerr made careers by hanging in front and taking the punishment from D-men. If the league is not going to allow defensemen to get overly physical with forwards then they have to keep the them out of the crease. I would like to see Marty take a page out of Billy Smith's book and start hacking away at players such as Holmstrom. All is fair in love, war and hockey!
