today was huge. they have the situation by the balls now. 2 out of three wins the division if the Pens will all 3. it could be over on Thursday but that'll be a tough spot for the Isles.

The thrasher fans got what they deserved after booing Kovy. Solid game by the devils, though the Lags, kovy, Elias line looked out of sync.

My guess is that Danis goes in the Buffalo game as there's a very good chance the Devils can clinch the division on Saturday against the Isles. Pittsburgh looked listless tonight against Washington. Buffalo clinched their division tonight and I don't see them burning out Miller in that game either.

just not going to happen. It would be suprising to see Danis in goal with all that is on the line in these last 3-games of the regular season. Brodeur to keep on rolling into the playoffs now. This is what he needs and this Devils team. Not Danis.


All that is on the line? There's not much on the line. They need to play well, and they need everyone on board - Danis included. Sitting Marty for a game is a good thing - it's happening to everyone else - Marty needs a day off.

Not much on the line? You're kidding right?

Lets see...

FIRST place in the Atlantic Division in a dogfight with Pittsburgh.

SECOND seed overall in the EC in a dogfight with Pittsburgh AND Buffalo.

I would say there is a LOT on the line right now for the Devils.

Danis is not going to play. Don't count on it. Brodeur will have his days of rest inbetween. more he has rest the worse he is. He is on a roll right now. Why would you stop that roll? No way sorry.

And I wouldn't lump all Devils fans that are also Red Sox fans in the same group as LD. We take no responsibility for him.

Contrary to what SD clearly knows...

I'd say Danis gets a shot on Sunday if most everything's wrapped up in a neat little package after Saturday. The game against Buffalo is earlier in the day (yes, not by much, but still) and may have little bearing on the standings.

I don't think we punt 2nd or 3rd in favor of resting Marty, but I don't think it's 100% nope nuh-uh no way when it comes to Danis getting in one more game.

IMO, the only way Danis gets a start IF the Devils clinch everything by the weekend or on Saturday vs. the NYI. Then he may get the start vs. Buffalo. If nothing is clinched and the Buffalo game neans the division and the second seed then we won't see Danis. From what Lemaire said in a TG article is that "Brodeur is playing the rest of the way."

And why would that be? Because he is playing his best hockey of the season and is incredibly focused? 2 GA in 4 games. less than a minute shy from having 4 straight shut outs? You're out of your mind....


In other news. I thought McAmmond had a GREAT game tonight. And did Fraser play at all after taking that penalty? I don't remember seeing him.

Ah Devils win, Marty gets a shut out, gets his 600th win, Pens lose, Yankees win (: , Red Sox lose and it's going to be 85 degree in NJ tomorrow. I feel like tonight is just too good of a night to waste, I should probably start drinking and call out of work and head to the beach instead.

This isn't the playoffs yet, I'd rather not burn him out just because he's on a roll now and he's in the zone partly because he got that long break during the Olympics and then sat another couple games besides.

If we win Thursday and Saturday, we clinch the division and if Buffalo loses even a point in their next two games we will have the two seed locked up with two wins so it becomes academic at that point.

And what does all that mean starting Wednesday or Thursday? Nada. We're going to have home-ice no matter what in the first round, we're basically playing for who gets home ice in the second round basically should we get there, and home ice hasn't meant all that much our first two years at the Rock anyway (2-5 in the playoffs).

Dear Jacques,

It took 79 games but I'm finally satisfied with the lineup and the lines. Let's not ruin a good thing.

if we don't end up with anything better, always nice to add another division banner to your ceiling. at least you don't end the season empty handed.
