I love taking Greene to task for a -3 when it's Severson who lost his man on goal #2 and Larsson who did on goal #4.  But since Salvador or Zidlicky isn't out there in the waning minutes, can't go crazy about DeBoer's selections anymore, so I guess it's now protest what he says.

 

it's not the -3. he's been not great coming off what was a terrific season last year. and yes, larsson and severson were big issues the end of the game.

 

we've discussed how they're trying to turn larsson into something different than he was, but he's becoming very strong in his own zone as they essentially squeeze any offensive life out of him. what he hasn't learned to do yet is take care of the front of the net. with 5-10 seconds left, you murder anyone in front of the net, penalty or not. take the penalty. i'm not going to go crazy over it, and severson's dzone work has also not been great lately.

it doesn't make sense, but i'm not as furious about this loss as i should be. maybe it's because western canada is usually a house of horrors for the devils.

 

there was a lot to like about the devils play last night. i thought each line did plenty of good things and the defense, for the most part, was pretty solid.

 

regarding pulling the goalie with a bunch of time left, you see how this affects the entire league. devils did it vs st louis and nearly got 3 goals in 2 minutes. edmonton did it two nights ago and had splendid chances. and obviously calgary last night.

 

there was no reason as 4-2 w/ 3:30 left that the devils should have gone into a shell, but that's what they did. that is on pdb for sure. i think it's something they will now be plenty conscious of.

 

re: clemmensen - i honestly think you got the best you possibly could out of him. he looked like a beer league goalie, but made some terrific saves and was in position on all initial shots. the two late goals, themselves, were a bit flukey but its what led to those situations in the first place.

 

i wanted 5/8 points on this west coast trip. if they win in Vancouver, they'll have accomplished that and I'll be ok with it.

you don't need a seperate voucher - if it's loaded, it's loaded. but the face of the ticket is higher if it's loaded. that's a pretty good indication.

I haven't seen it with severson lately. Yes, he's getting his shots but he and Greene have been ordinary at best lately - at least to the eye test.
