For as horrendous the power play has been, it would be a helluva time for them to score and tie this up. It may not technically be a must win but I don't see how the Devils win this series without winning this game. Gotta take the 3rd Devils!


devils do play strong third perids.

Gonna be rooting like crazy!

this is probably the worst 5 on 5 Devils team since they've been good. that period was absolutely putrid, just had enough PP's to break up the suck.

they're taking a bullet to the dome sometime, might as well be now.

well, it's like i said after the last game.. at least i'll see my Giants beat the Eagles this year without McNabb and Westbrook in the building. Gotta look at the bright side i suppose, right? Since our Devils suck as usual when it matters most.

Bouche is out dueling Marty, unbelievable.

I don't think Boucher is out dueling Marty. When was the last time he was forced to make a good save? We just don't have any forecheck or sustained pressure.

This is Devils/Hurricanes 2009 all over again. Last postseason showed the Devils were too slow on D...Lou did nothing to upgrade team speed on D during the offseason and it's coming back to bite us.

you cannot have 4 immobile piles of dogsh!t like Salvador, White, Mottau, and Skoula/Fraser in the lineup at the same time. We need SPEED on D


Add that all 4 handle and pass the puck like it's a live grenade. Can't break out, can't get the puck on net, can't get the puck out of trouble...

Unfortunately, I've lost most of the hope that I had for this series. I might get surprised and we will win this game, and go on to win the series, but the fact is that the Flyers are playing us perfectly in this series. They are exposing all of our weaknesses and stifling whatever offensive threats we have. They forecheck extremely hard, muscle our smaller players off the puck, beat us along the boards, and put their big bodies in front of us every time we want to take a shot. The Devils are very talented, but the Flyers are using their size advantage to perfection, and it's very hard to play against that. They had some problems with our 5on5 play in the first two games, but they have really adjusted their game, and are now outplaying us at even strength pretty consistently.

If I believed we could hold our own against them on a regular basis, I would even hold out hope if we went down 3-1 in the series. But as it stands, I doubt we can win another game against this team, let alone three straight.

Is there some special reason that our team can't hit the net?

And Rolston's dump in with 5 seconds left was classic. Coward. I see a few guys on this team who already have their cup ring(s) and apparently don't want another one.

Its frustrating when you have to concede that the Flyers are the better team. Bouche is out dueling Marty, unbelievable.


Boucher has nothing to do with this series... Marty is the only reason the last two games have been close. Boucher hasn't done anything but stop unscreened shots. I don't know if our guys are hurt, tired, or afraid to try. We look like it's mid-October and we are playing a western conference team... Pathetic.

Where is Jamie?

What the fvck has gotten into Travis? He is a complete waste of space this series, very surprising.

If Neidermayer sees another shift, I am going to punch a kitten.

Kovalchuk was a nice experiment, can we send him back yet?

I love the play of Andy Greene - pleasant surprise!

Can we quadruple shift Zach and Zub's? If not, we have no chance.


We'll see if we have *any* leadership in this locker room in the next 20 minutes.

Lou has to seriously re evaluate how he builds a team this offseason. No more White and Mottau please. too slow, too stupid, always pressured into dumb plays and failed clears by aggressive forcheckers. Can't pass. The Devils only have 2 defenders who are quality passer. That doesn't cut it.

ha thank you Dano for backing me up... at least i'm not the only one who thinks it's obvious the refs are being influenced by the crowd. It's like they are afraid someone's gonna throw a bottle at them or start a riot if they don't call something everytime a flyer gets touched.

You can't be mad at Kovy for anything he has done this game. Well I guess not finishing his chances would be something to be mad about.

THIS IS THE SEASON!
HOPE THAT YOUR BETTER AT GOLF THAN ON THE ICE!
YOU ARE PLAYING LIKE SH!T!! :soap: :soap: :soap: :soap: :soap: :soap: :soap: :soap: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh:

GOD I HATE WATCHING THIS!


Now THIS is what I like to read!! :rofl:

you know -- they aren't playing like sh!t though -- Greene is looking great Martin is right there -- Whitey - the CALMING force out there on a play? Some of the guys aren't all there they're playing like they feel and see what you see and thus play for sh!t -- WHY if they are feeling and seeing what you brilliant hockey minds are they SUCKING? Because they're not playing their game they're watching it and not playing in the moment. You know and Dano is actually right on here. Chip it in... that when to I think WIN HOW YOU CAN WIN -- I dont think be a filthy fvck and skate all over peoples fvcking hands sticks and feat stick your knees in between guys legs and sh!t - and hope the DEVIL gets the penalty when you trip yourself up -- that's not a brilliant forecheck --- I'll MARRY fvcking dum and chase before I root for that garbage you all are saying you wish the Devils were playing like. <_<

I can't? Thanks, mom...

He scored a goal 4 on 2, on a screened AHL goalie. I like his effort at times, but he is way too soft on the boards. This is a guy that is supposed to be a difference maker - he's transparent 5 on 5 except when he's turning the puck over in the neutral zone.

As much as this sucks for us as fans, I wonder how Dano and Stevens feel. They played their hearts out for this club and won 3 cups. To see this team so clueless must be hard for them. Anyone who sees Dano after a loss knows how much this team means to him.
