#1115057 GDT: Eastern Conference Semis - Game 2 NJ @ Philadelphia - 5/1/12

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 01 May 2012 - 09:07 PM

Funny story, I was at the movies and told my friend I wasn't seeing any updates until after the movie was over, cause I figured the game would almost be over at that point. Then my friend looks up the score on her phone and the Flyers were already up 1-0, I was like bah, that's why I didn't want to see the score till later, I wanted to just pull off the bandaid at once lol. Next time I see it it was 1-1 in the third, then by the time I get to my car it was 2-1, then by the time I started listening on the radio it was 3-1 and fortunately I got home just in time to turn on the TV telecast and see Salvador troll the Flyers with his 200-foot goal :rofl:

Still scarred from Andreychuk 1997...I wish we could just sub in Albany tomorrow


Fair point but I don't want to be the Colts or Packers either and just go in the deep freeze with long rests.

#1090816 GDT- the devils vs the sabres-7 pm eastern

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 14 February 2012 - 11:28 PM

Why do you guys even bother parsing the NHL front page? That ain't the first place I'm looking for Devils news before the Devils' own site, TG's Fire and Ice blog or message boards like this. Honestly I think some of you aren't happy unless you have something to complain about :P

I wouldn't call our attendance "terrible", compared to other teams in pro sports, some who have been better than us recently. Just not that good. But after the last 2 games don't be surprised if they get 11,000 at best on Tuesday.


The Devils haven't drawn below 12,000 all year, and Tuesday's one of the 'value' priced games (I refuse to use the 30th Anniversary designation lol). Today was one of the premium games, and yet another game that would have been a sellout last year fell way short because of it.

Plus even 'after the last two games' the Devils are still in playoff position. They are what we (or at least the sensible ones of us) thought they were. I admit for a moment when we were ahead against Boston thinking maybe the Devils will make the playoffs without a real struggle again, but no - they're exactly what their play says they've been for most of the season: A slightly above average team that's going to struggle to make the playoffs, if they do. Losing two of your top four defenseman and your top defensive forward doesn't exactly help when the weakness of your team was already...defense.

Since November they've been fine overall, beating the teams they're supposed to beat and on the same level with for the most part while losing to the teams better than them. They have a poor record against the top four...who exactly thought the Devils WERE a top four team going into the season? Or now for that matter?

Chico: "This is an inspiring victory"


Yeah real inspiring...there's a 99% chance we lose this game if it was actual playoff rules.

I better not see people pulling the don't worry, be happy routine tonight. When you blow a three-goal lead in the third, you don't deserve to win, I'm sorry.

#1071195 GDT: OTTAWA AT NEW JERSEY

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 09 December 2011 - 01:04 AM

No, I think mikeford is right, they should have played keep away. It was risky to do as they were doing - I know they wanted to get another goal, but they risked giving one up playing that way. Then the ref put his whistle away hilariously and there it is.


I'd rather they try and score, with how bad this team is at allowing breakaways on the power play of doom, all it would take is one mishandled pass against a team that's desperately forechecking and then it's off to the races. This isn't soccer, you can't hide in the corner.

#1069626 The Kovy Conundrum

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 03 December 2011 - 10:35 PM

He can put up all the points he wants, doesn't mean much if Kovy's giving them away and more besides on the defensive end.

Well if that goal gets allowed there's no reason the Parise one had to be disallowed, but hey we don't deserve a break right now. This game should have been 3-1 or 4-1 but again we don't convert chances (cue Tri saying we were 'unlucky' for the 2433th time in the last two years) and Moose handles the puck like a grenade. I guess if Kovy farts the wrong way on the ice he gets blamed for it though.

I can't see how Kovalchuk can control that pass (harder than cam janssen slap shot)


That looked a lot slower on the replay. I really don't want to blame Kovy AGAIN though, it seems like such an easy cop-out at this point, especially when Moose handles the puck like a grenade :P

lol so when Hedberg fires it hard enough to get out to the blueline quickly, Kovy's supposed to control that? Whatever, funny how when Hedberg turns it over people find an excuse to blame Kovy but when Kovy turns it over it's all him. Come on now. Hedberg's great when he's in the crease but he handles the puck about as well as Kovy does when he's on the point.

Moose really bailed the team out on that one. Bonehead move by Kovy.


Kovy wasn't the one with the stupid giveaway in the first place that caused the play. They were both equally culpable.

Just about anything could be a possible playoff matchup at this point with FIVE 6-3 teams :P

Posted by NJDevs4978 on 27 October 2011 - 07:32 PM

hell ya... that would be fantastic... and also because this whole arguement is hard to watch


Conversely, if the Devils miss the playoffs again and Zach does leave, this will never end.
