The bad PK is a recurring thing for exactly 6 games. Last year the Devils had the best PK in the NHL and was in the top 5 the year before and the year before that set the modern NHL record for best full season PK%.
The Devils are 3-2-1, exactly one point out of first, have dared to go 0-2-1 in three games, and for some, the sky is already falling. Biz as usual at njdevs.com.
The game against the Rags sucked (well, some of it did), but I can't go into friggin' panic mode this early...you'd think the Devils were 0-5-1 from some of the posts. Cory's not going to keep stopping pucks at a .898 rate. I'm not saying this team is a lock to make the playoffs, but I fully expect them to be competitive, and I'm definitely not going to jump to any conclusions based on a 6-game sample. Especially since the D has some youth and is still sorting itself out (if Sal keeps up the suckage, it's only a matter of time before his ice time is reduced).
