"Lemaire on no Devs' PPs tonight: 'We feel that we don't play hard enough. That's the reason we don't get a power play.' "

Yikes! JL demanding more. I LIKE IT!

He also was pissed at Volchenkov for the penalties. Only played two shifts after the last penalty.


lol there were at least five or six times where they could have whistled Carolina but of course they always get the calls (or non-calls) against us, particularly in the third period. Usually you get at least one or two calls when you dominate to the tune of 19 shots to 3 in five-on-five.

But it's good to hear that he benched Volchenkov...it's this Lemaire I was hoping for last year when he came back but he never really held people accountable or was too afraid of stepping on toes. Now that he's coaching like it's his last season he's back to being the demanding '95 Jacques :)

Agreed. He needs to keep demanding a lot. Though we had a nice comeback tonight it was still another game with some sloppiness to it, sort of like the Florida game from last week. We can be better. Volchenkov had a tough game but I expect he'll bounce back. A few other players were sloppy too, like Palmieri. Elias has also been snake-bitten lately - couple of missed breakaways plus that chance with 14 seconds left that wouldn't go. He can be better too.

Another chance to gain some ground Thursday against Toronto.

Salvador is out for forever and Taormina is probably done for the season. So from here on out it's probably going to be either Fraser or Salmela in the six-hole, take your pick.

What a turnaround. Considering the feeling of embarrassment I had leaving the 12/23 blowout by the Isles, I didn't think I could be this excited at a game this season. Sitting in the Rock, watching the game, there was just a buzz in the air. Like, I really never felt they were out of it and I lost it on both of the last two goals. It feels great to be a fan again.

Oh yeah. I guess so. But I don't know if he's much better than Fraser or Salmela. Maybe marginally better.

I nearly punched out my friend by accident celebrating Palmeri's goal tonight, luckilly no one was sitting to my right so i could step out for Teds' winner

I was up in 230 so couldn't really see the Volchenkov "elbow" but was it really worthy of a freaking disciplinary hearing?! apparently he has one tomorrow cause of it, per Bob MacKenzie

this was an edge of your seat comeback.

reading how the posts change so dramatically on page 3 is epic.

also i love Doc: "Tim Gleason, a name which is a part of a bad memory for the devils, that game tying goal during game 7, and now the Devils fans are cringing and saying 'Doc, knock it off'"

Games like that make me say screw the playoffs. I mean, yeah, keep gunning for them. But if we don't make it, we'll be fine. Let's keep teaching Teddy and Palmieri how to be winners and get big goals like they did tonight. That's just as important for this franchise as making an improbable playoff run. I thought Palmieri had a bit of a tough game most of the way, but if he keeps driving the net and picking up the dirty goals, that makes it a lot better. And Teddy played smart all night. And you can't teach finishing skills like that. He's got 'em.


Yeah, I'm just enjoying watching them play competitive hockey again. The playoff dream has gone from impossible to a longshot, but even if they don't make it, I'd much rather see this than a "fvck it, we're probably not making it anyway, let's just mail it in" approach. This is far more entertaining and constructive, for vets and youth alike.

Even with this surge, the Devils are STILL last in the NHL in GF and STILL have more regulation losses than any other team. Just a reminder of how putrid those first 41 games were.

BTW, I'm sure many have noticed this, but:

1st 41 GP: 10 wins, 2 OT losses
Next 13 GP: 10 wins, 2 OT losses

Unbelievable...

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

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.

Since we weren't playing an original six franchise, there's still a chance he'll just get a fine.

TG:

Even with an effort they did not think was their best, the Devils improved to 10-1-2 in their last 13 games. They’re enjoying it, but aren’t satisfied.

“It’s nice, but it just started,” Kovalchuk said of the team’s roll. “We’ll have way more fun.”
