Are you saying that Brodeur and Lundqvist are married?



LOL! No. Lundqvist is not even close to Brodeur as being a King. It pisses me off when they call Lundqvist the king. he is far from that.

i really can't believe how many devils fans there were in the building tonight - had to be between 10-15% which is a good percentage all things considered.

thoughts on madison square garden from the 400 section:

sight lines are terrible, as i've read, and i was far away from the action.

the other rangers fans in the section were straight out of a neil simon play with accents and speech. amusing things: they think langenbrunner is a terrible captain for team USA and made fun of that all night. they also think avery really gets a raw deal from the refs.

anyway what i really saw from the 400 section is that the devils really, really need a center. they are great along the boards and stuff, but generally good playoff teams don't let you win there a lot. if the devils can't enter the zone with the puck or make a crisp pass as the first man in, they are going to have to do a lot to both draw penalties and get quality scoring chances. the good news is that the rangers can be beat along the boards all night. this team really misses dainius zubrus, it's good to hear that he is skating again.

Just came back from MSG. Amazing atmosphere, amazing game. Just another page in the legendary book that is Martin Brodeur. 51 saves through overtime and 4 saves including a beautiful glove save in the shootout?!? This may be Marty's best game since Game 5 vs Carolina last year. This game was reminiscent of the 2000 Cup Finals battles of Brodeur vs Belfour. The Rangers players and fans have to be completely deflated after this one. 107 AND COUNTING!

Just back from the "Gaaaaden"

I agree with Tri.. at least 10% Devils fans... my section we got an unstoppable let's go Devils' chant going... it was awesome

The lighting in there is so dingy that the ice looks yellow... though after last Friday I wasn't going to comment on the lighting at MSG

One thing you can see about Marty from being there was how well he anticipated today. That was one of the top ten heroic goaltending performances I have ever seen.

Rangers played desperate the whole game. Trapped most of the game. We need to figure out the 5-3. My call was Rangers won the ice by a 60%-40% margin. And can we win a faceoff? That problem needs to be address before playoff time.

We miss Martin, Clarkson and Zubrus for sure. Need to get Salvador back with Greene. And we gotta find a center for Elias. He is being wasted.

Best lines of the night were the dude behind me who kept saying, "that f-ing Brodeur is so lucky." And on the way out, some guy in his business suit and trench coat turned to his friend and said, "the good news is that Brodeur can't last forever, he'll die soon enough and this franchise will be over."

BAHAHAHAHAHA

This game reminded me of Brodeur vs Belfour 2000 SCF

It was one of the best games I've ever attended. A shame that such a well played game was decided by a gimmick. I knew we had no chance. It's unfair to face Parise, Langenbrunner, Zajac and then Elias fourth. Games like tonight that are so intensely fought should never come down to a 1-on-1. Hasan said it was a perfect argument for getting rid of the shootout. Why not an extra 2 of 3-on-3? How good would that have been? We'll never know.

Tri, sorry I missed ya. I was in 411 sporting my yellow Sweden Lundqvist.

it's certainly a game i would've preferred to have no shootout. most games aren't that way, though.

derek: ah, i think i was in 404. kinda nice how concessions are laid out up there but also if there's any line it has to be terrible.

also the ice at MSG is so bad, i don't know how they can't fix that

msweet: the devils trapped all game long as well.

ice that is like on the 6th floor is never going to be good... and maybe that's why they don't light the place so you can't see the bad ice

and yes I know the Devil's trapped too... I was pointing out the Rag$ trapping since Rag$ fans have be complaining about us trapping for years.

Yeah. Concessions are alright. I never get anything tho cause the food sucks. Bathrooms though. eh. Plus there's like no room for moving around. All the more reason they're renovating. Too bad Dolan will price the real fans out. This is probably our final year. The atmosphere was great. It wasn't a shock that you were well represented as many sold their tickets weeks ago. Our team just doesn't have enough skill. They had plenty of chances. Boyle's breakaway attempt was pathetic. Rozsival missed a wide wide open net by a mile. Higgins again fanned on one. Against a great goalie, you have to get to loose pucks. Especially when you have so little skill. For the most part, the refs did a nice job allowing the teams to play.

Devils: 45 SOG, 10 missed, 13 blocked (4 Staal) = 68 total

Rangers: 51 SOG, 17 missed, 16 blocked (5 Greene) = 84 total

I was also at tonight's game, in 417, with the railing blocking ny view of the net. :(

It seems very odd to say this about a game where there were so many SOG, but I thought the Rangers were very good defensively. They short-circuited many of the Devils' attempts to get the cycle going. It was also hard work gaining the Ranger zone.

Someone in this thread commented that they don't know why Elias isn't playing center, and I agree. Rolston and Elias were not very good tonight, and neither was Dean McAmmond.

Pandolfo, the black hole on offense. That's a good description. ZZ Pops, great game by them as usual, particularly Zach and Jamie.

We were playing for the shootout with Mottau and White out there a lot in the OT. There was a lot of safe play there.

Both goalies were great, but there were a lot of easy saves for both guys. I was actually disappointed that the game had very little snarl.

A concern that I have not seen mentioned. Andy Greene's last shift was at 17:15 of the 3rd and only lasted about 30 seconds. He did not see the ice in the closing moments or at all in overtime. The broadcast nor TG made any mention of it so far. I hope hes healthy as there isnt any reason for him to get rested then. He only had 23:30 of ice up till that point.

The problem this created was lots of icetime for Johnny Oduya, who continues his trend of up and down play, both were seen in single shifts tonight.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

Both goalies were great, but there were a lot of easy saves for both guys. I was actually disappointed that the game had very little snarl.



Glad someone noticed. I felt Lundqvist had more saves on scrambles while Marty off shots with no one getting to rebounds. Yeah. There was no edge but it didn't need it cause the 2 teams just played hockey. The Devs got away with a couple of poor line changes. Obvious calls. Other than that, it was a tremendous game, epitomizing why this rivalry is so good.


Both me and Has had takes over at Battle. I'm going to link 'em up for ya 'll.


Late in the second period, I recall thinking 'oh my god, this game is going to be scoreless going into the shootout'. Yet ironically tonight might have been the biggest indictment of the shootout yet. I'm not as steadfast against the shootout like Derek or other purists, but tonight was really one of the few times I thought, 'why can't this game just end in a tie?'. Somewhat fittingly none of the first seven shooters scored, increasing the tension tenfold and sending the shootout into sudden death.


Forget All The Analysis


A grand total of ninety-six shots were taken through regulation and four-on-four overtime. Not a single one went in or struck a goalpost/crossbar. This doesn't even include the offerings that missed or got blocked by dedicated players from each side who competed fiercely for every inch of ice. Yeah. Over a hundred were attempted without any success because MB30 and King Henrik wouldn't allow one to get by them. If you love the sport, this was absolutely tremendous. Each tried their best but neither budged, taking it the distance where a skill competition was needed to decide a winner.

Marty-Henrik duel one for ages

This was one of those games where a loss can easily start a pretty bad losing streak. So glad we were able to get this one.
