On the bright side, Kovy scored his 20th goal as a Devil.

Fewest goals: 133, by 1953–54 Chicago Black Hawks


That's only a 70-game sched though.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

You can celebrate that one with Tri.

20 goals in 65 GP as a Devil, with plenty of boneheaded plays. Ugh.

Truly a joke in the Verizon tower. We waited to the point that people had to walk backwards on the escalators as the lobby was full. Three people in slow motion giving out hats. There where easily 2,000 plus people trying to get out standing there only to find out there were no hats. They were calling for extra security because they were afraid of the crowd.

truly pathetic end to a sad night. Worst managed give away I have ever seen.

I saw positives tonight, especially after the softie Moose let in, the devils did not DIE on the ice completely. They still shows signs of life, and tried to score the tying goal. I thought for sure after that they would be less effective than orange cones nailed to mulberry street in stopping the other team. I am glad they proved me wrong.


I think that goal, will be talked about for 15 years, "yes I at the game when 'that goal' was scored"... In the end however it does not mean a thing for this season, other than something we can laugh at.

Yeah it very badly organized where I went out as well, I don't know why they just didn't give them out on the way in. Would have made things easier.

They are pretty nice though so they got that part right.

It was really that hideous?! I heard a description on the WFAN 20/20 but jesus f'ing christ I'm glad I missed this one :lol:

Good thing I didn't care enough about the dopey hat to go to this game (especially since it sounds like that was a joke too...how can they run out of hats when there were likely 12-14,000 people there) :P

They didn't give them out coming in because they remember last year - they gave them out before the Lightning game in which the lights when out, and people were throwing them on the ice afterwards.

If just one person who threw his hat on the ice last year didn't get one this year, it makes up for the fact that I missed out on one. (okay, it doesn't bother me much that I missed out because they're always too small for my head anyway, but still).

What cup contender would want Brodeur? There was a window to trade him that would have made sense for this team, and we're at least a year past that window.
