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.


haha nice bday present, happy birthday.

Kovy had his booster on while skating down there, so fast, nice stick handling, and an even better goal! Great, that's really really great :)

Any sharks seen yet? Don't think so...i hope they are not too tired.

TGfireandice Tom Gulitti
Kovalchuk on scoring to get Lemaire his 600th: “It’s nice. We knew he had 599 and I think he’s the best coach I ever played for definitely"


Gotta give both coach and player tons of credit for this. Kovy's OT winner was wonderful, but it's everything else that Kovy's been doing that has me blown away. Lemaire has somehow undone YEARS of Kovy's bad habits and poor instincts and has turned him into a competent all-around hockey player who's putting up points to boot, in a very short period of time. Is it because Lemaire is truly that great a coach? Is it because after a incredibly dreadful first half, Kovy broke down and finally had his Richard Gere "I AIN'T GOT NOWHERE ELSE TO GO!" moment, allowing Lemaire to build him back up?

There's a part of me that wonders what will happen if Lemaire doesn't coach next year, if Kovy will retain what he's learned.

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.

The $100 million dollar man wants to prove he is worth it. We got an amazing talent here for the next decade+. Enjoy it folks, we are going to witness a Hall of Famer during the peak of his career. He will score his 500th goal in a Devils jersey, and hopefully hoist a Cup or 3 in a Devils jersey as well!

Hey Phaneuf..

THIS +1 LOL and like other posters have mentioned I like Kovy playing at the point on the PK team
The guy plays wide and long. he's a great angler and pressures the point passing. I can't wait to see him steal one.

He simply plays at a different speed than the rest of the NHL

BTW, Thanks Moose quality goaltending last night

he's certainly entitled to his opinion on kovalchuk. however, vanishing while the devils are succeeding raises serious questions about his fandom.

He was doom and gloom re: Kovy from the beginning. He was definitely sooooo happy that his "prediction" was right; for at least a few months. Now that Kovy is playing like we all hoped he would, Manta has vanished like Houdini! He is probably terribly upset that he is not nostradamus after all. Maybe MANTA was the problem with the Devs this year. He was a jinx and now that he is MIA, the boys are on a hotttt streak. Here's to hoping Manta never comes back, and the Devs keep on keepin on all the way to the PLAYOFFS?!?!? :cheers:

Furthermore, it continues to show the embarrassment of a head coach that John MacLean was.

i suppose your right. aside from 2003, what had he ever done to earn that C? like I can't even picture him being a leader in the locker room. Whenever i used to visualize him talking to the team in the locker room, all i could think of was him standing in front of a dry-erase board mumbling to his team.

Jamie is great. He's team centric, generous to a fault, loves and understands hockey. He's articulate as well actually. He's also Fiercely loyal. and when that gets messed up -- and he supports the individual over the team -- well then there are problems.

I dont think he's had any effect on Dallas yet. Unless he's blabbing about what was wrong for him in NJ... that can take a toll. but he doesn't seem a recreational bitcher as much as a knee-jerk defender of truth justice and the hockey player way. He just lost sight of the ACTUAL HOCKEY part. :noclue:
