As soon as Kovy went into turbo mode, I thought, god I hope he scores!

Jamie is thinking " Good for them". Deep deep down he might acknowledge he might have been being kind of an a$$hole. Questioning his personal accountability in all situations he appeared blameless for. I think it will actually help him let go and move on. Sometimes all you need to move forward is to honestly see that while you CAN'T see it, maybe you were out of touch and despite your huge generous heart, you might have to give just a little more to get beyond it all. And that is ok. Doable. Acceptable

Lemaire needs to be back next year or at the very least a Lemaire type of coach needs to be here.

Furthermore, it continues to show the embarrassment of a head coach that John MacLean was. I honestly wonder whether he even spent time going over little things with players or running drills. Players seem to be in better shape, seem to understand what to do in situations and how to react, almost like they are learning how to play winning hockey.

Kovalchuk's play under Lemaire is so ridiculously better, it's not even funny.


Other notes:

On defense: Fayne had one of his best games I felt on both sides of the ice. Tallinder looked bad tonight at times, as did Fraser who I pray is not back next year. Zubrus has been hot lately.

So not fair to macLean. Jacques not only has YEARS on MacLean. He also had the benefit of screwing up then stepping back to get a good clear picture then the chance to tackle the same problem. You're giving Lemaire an undeserved Mulligan on the score sheet

That is to say your comparing apples to oranges. Not to say I want MacLean back. I honestly hoped he'd be smart enough to refuse the job in that little space when Lou said the job was his if he wanted it to the press but there was still no official appointment. Did I post that? I thought it. If Mac knows what's good for him he'll ask to stay in Albany. I truly hoped against hope for that

I thought Fayne struggled enormously on the defensive side tonight. Was overly aggressive and lost his man or let up odd man rushes a few times because of it.

His offense was on thought, great shot selection and placement.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Not sure if this was mentioned, but give Fraser credit for basically saving the game. If he didn't take that penalty, I'm not sure the Devils would have been able to come back from 2 goals down.

Anyway, solid game for the Devils, despite some sloppiness in the second, they played pretty well.

Just got in from being at this game......I don't know if this has been mentioned... but....
KOVY was given penalty kill time tonight!!!!!!

This to me was huge and I made it known to the dumb ass Leaf fans around me. Kovy is getting more confidence and is now more reliable in all situations. I was shocked at first, then totally impressed. He did good.....

Hedberg rocked the hizzy.... solid effort!!! Our 4th didn't do what it normally does in my opinion (Mair played), and we got the shaft on a few calls tonight, but overall a solid effort. I wish PP didn't suck worse than my 15 year old Hoover though.

Kovy flew tonight, it is crazy how Elias is EVERYWHERE, Zubs is a count on guy, 4th line is fun to watch, Zajac is crazy good on faceoffs, the D is reliable.....and this is a big one.... they GET to rebounds, clear out players from in front, etc. Noticable difference from the earlier stages of the season.

Damn is was good to scream happy things at the ACC tonight............Woooo Hoooooo................

I believe it was the end of this glorious franchise's winning ways.

Something like we'll never be good again until we rid ourselves of that cancer.

Of course Manta runs and hides when things start to turn around.

No surprise here. But he better come pay the piper soon. Kovy will likely hit 30 goals this season, despite the worst start for our entire team ever

EDIT: HE IS SCORING HUGE GOALS RIGHT NOW

the first half of this season is such a shame for this team. i know manta loved it, but there is a lot of talent here and that was inexcusable. more on john maclean and lou than the players. kovalchuk is becoming more beastly with every passing day in this uniform. i'm willing to bet that manta will not be posting at all by the all star break next season.

And Lemaire has had the advantage of coaching a team without it's biggest cancer on it anymore since he sent Langenbrunner packing like we needed do six months sooner :P

I went NUTS tonight when I was at the game. I was pretty quiet for most of the part, except making smart @ss Kessel remarks to some d-bag sitting a few rows over. Good game, would've like to seen some more goals but we worked hard, and lol at Phaneuf. I knew when I saw Kovy streaking down the ice, it was game over lol. Happy Birthday to me, I'm drunk, going to bed.
