I'll admit I'm not even going to watch this game. In the past, win or lose, I'll catch up on the game on DVR but I'm not going to waste my time tonight.
I am so tired of these guys and would love to see them moved on draft day. Ryder no goals in 18 games. Brunner no goals in 10 games. I get that these guys tend to run hot and cold but this is a bit ridiculous.
I'd like to see at least one of them moved, but I can't see either one bringing much back.
As for the game...sucks that Schneider didn't have the kind of game the Devils really needed him to have, but I'm definitely not in "the last couple of games completely negates the terrific stretch that came before it" mode. If Cory has proven anything in his career, it's that he's a very good puck-stopper. I fully believe he will recover.
OK Marty, you wanted playing time, looks like you will have a shot to get it. Make the most of it.
Last night was so weird...once the Devils took that 3-2 lead, I kept waiting for them to settle the game down. It just never happened.
Would've been nice to see PDB to call a timeout when it was 4-3 or 5-3, but it probably wouldn't have made much of a difference. If there's anything disheartening about the last couple of games, it's that Detroit isn't at full strength and the Devils still had their hands full. Devils are actually pretty fortunate to have earned a draw.
