1 being not at all and 10 being smashed, we were a 2 or 3 at best. The Devils played a strong game tonight. They are a team now. They all know they can do it and have the potential to get to where they need to be. Its nice to see again.


Eh we were outplayed by a fair margin, particularly in the first period but I expected that with this being a seventh game in eleven days, and a third in fourth with the first two being OT games. The fact they won a game which was almost an automatic L on paper (especially against a Shark team almost as hot as us) tells you there might be a little magic in the air.

Still a long way to go though...and with four days off between games the deficit might go up a couple of points by Wednesday. All I ask is just keep getting to the next home game with a chance. We might not make the playoffs this year but in a sense we already have, these whole last couple weeks have had playoff intensity and hopefully that continues for a while.

More positive Kovy numbers:

I've done my share of pointing out Kovy's struggles earlier, so it's only fair to post how well he's been doing lately:

Kovy's numbers over this 12-1-2 run:

15 GP, 9 G, 8 A, 17 Pts, +8, 46 SOG

He's been a minus player in just two of these games, and has been held without a point in only four.

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?

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.

I'm sure the bolded part has you wetting your pants, but in Marty's last 11 appearances, he's 8-1-1 with a 1.79 GAA and a .933 save%. Pretty damned good.

I think he'll still have them from time to time, but he's clearly becoming much more sound all-around. This wasn't one of his better games, yet he still found a way to get a couple of points, and scored on his one and only shot. I think he's up to 27 points in his last 31 GP...he keeps doing that, continues to improve the other parts of his game, and keeps the brainfarts to a minimum, I'll happily take it.

I agree Marty has been on fire as of late.

The bolded statement, however, gives me hope for when he hangs them up. They can win without him without having an Elite goalie between the pipes. Success can be accomplished once he is done being our cornerstone.

Either was, congratulations Devils, another hard fought, no quit effort.

Also, thank you to the fans that went tonight, I couldn't make it because I had a very important meeting this morning which I had to focus on, but hearing that atmosphere on TV was amazing. The 3rd period sounded like a playoff game... in Western Canada. So much energy, just freaking awesome.

Did Elias "score" an empty net goal at the end that was waived off? I hear it went in before the last second ticked away. Was there a reply of the goal?

If they did not replay it I can only assume that it was a good goal then. Why wouldnt they replay it otherwise?

I was hoping it would've counted too. All I know is that when they came back from the commercial break, Cangiolosi briefly mentioned that it crossed the line after time expired. I think that was the last time anyone mentioned it. I can only guess that because the Devils won the game, they figured it wasn't that important.

When they play baseball games in Cleveland they never show a poor call on the big screen. Probably because they know we're drunk and stupid enough to start rioting because of it.

They reviewed it and it went in after the buzzer.

It was pretty clear with no replay though that it was at least a half second late if not more than that. But who cares?

Actually, I was able to (miraculously if you ever deal with it) stop the OnDemand replay at .2 and .1 and it didn't look in either time. It was the angle from center ice, not the overhead net cam, but it looked like it crossed after 00:00, but like -.1 or -.2! So Close! If he ate Wheaties for breakfast it woulda been in! :koolaid:
