  2. Said it elsewhere but one of the best things about this crazy streak is that it’s not based on anything freakish. The Devils rank middle of the pack in shooting% and save%…yes, they are going to lose some games eventually, but at least it won’t be due to severe regression to the mean. They’re not a fluke. They’re just really fvcking GOOD. Will be a blast to find out HOW good as this season unfolds. L G M F D!!!

  6. Tough one tonight, obviously…Oilers are giving them up in bunches but we all know they can score in bunches too. Glad VV got a little extra rest by not playing on Saturday…hopefully he can continue his own personal streak (8 wins and counting). Would love to see Dawson find the net tonight. L G M F D!!!

  11. Thoughts on the game: - This team is damn good. Even when we don’t play our best games (as has been the case the last week) we still find ways to win and control play. - Trouba is piece of sh!t. Not only doesn’t shake our captain’s hand at the ceremonial puck drop but he then tries to throw his patented flying elbow on him. Should’ve been a charging call. - The Rag players are the whiniest players, complaining about every single call. Every penalty against them was clear cut yet they still bitched. - All the Devil fans at the Garden were loud. Even with MSG not miking arenas anymore, Devil fans came through loud and clear. You all are beauties, God bless you all and the Igor serenade.

  12. Can we just leave Hughes and Hischier out of it going forward and start comparing the development of Lafreniere and Kakko with Holtz and Zetterlund? We still might come out ahead

  15. You guys can defend the letter of the law all you want but if you think tonight was anything other than an embarrassment for the NHL, i'm not sure what to say. 1. The video posted shows that the 1st goal called back had nothing to do with the attempted save. Murray was getting set for the shot when the contact occurred with Bastian. Murray never lost his balance and he still made an attempt to save the puck which was not impeded. There was no attempt to make the save in one motion 2. You can sit here until you're blue in the face debating if Tatar made a reasonable effort to avoid Murray but at the end of the day, the goal occurred because Murray made a sh!tty clearing attempt. Also, I've never seen in writing where Tatar needs to anticipate that Murrays first move after the playing the puck was to skate back to the net. It might be common sense but making a reasonable attempt has nothing to do with anticipating the goalies next move. 3. The entire reason for the kicking rule is so you don't have players making a front/back slicing motion with a literal blade on the bottom of their foot. There is no difference in risk between the play Haula made turning his foot tonight and directing the puck with the Elias playoff kick pass that the NHL still celebrates as one of the 10 best assists ever.

  16. The leafs basically had the puck for 1.5 seconds in OT. Great play by Hughes

  17. That blue stripe is just so anti-Devils to me. They really could have used that space on the jersey for something more fitting for the team, maybe something like a purple bar.

  18. As of today: NHL save%: .901 Devils save%: .901 Yep...FINALLY, the Devils are getting league-average goaltending...obviously VV has been even better than that (.915). Nice to have that too.

  19. Mentioned it in passing but Tomas Tatar deserves his own post from me. The guy has played a really solid stretch of hockey, and it's noticeably coming from more effort in the defensive goal. I don't think he really has any "vanity" points where he just happened to touch the puck -- he's been making stuff happen and it's great to see. Credit @SterioDesignfor sticking with him when the rest of the forum was pretty close to stabbing him with an xacto blade. Speaking of SD, where've ya been you weirdo?

  22. My buddies went to the game and said there was a loud VAN-E-CEK! VAN-E-CEK! chant going as the game ended, and Vitek pointed up at them and “pumped them up” as the team was skating off the ice. this team is unbelievable.

  23. My last fvck Trouba tonight, just for good measure. What a clown franchise for giving that dirty asshat the C over 2 guys they have that lead the team for years. It just makes no sense at all, so completely on par for them. Congrats on picking a giant turd to be the ambassador of your team. I am so happy he missed that hit on Nico, the only thing that could have made it better is if he broke something going into the boards so he couldn't try to elbow someone else for a while.

  26. Just got back…one of those weird games where the score doesn’t truly match what happened on the ice, but when your goalie has a great game and your budding superstar notches a hat trick, you leave happy regardless. Everyone lost their minds when Jack finished off his trick…the place just exploded and it was an awesome moment to be a part of. And Zetterlund’s goal celly was hysterical. This season feels like one endless exorcism, and now it’s the Capitals and their seemingly endless domination that’s the latest ghost to be banished. I’m loving every last moment of this. Oh and bought myself a Hughes RR 2.0 jersey tonight. Gotta admit…I like these things. I do.

  29. Purple bars. Win after win after win. My kid getting to see what a good Devils team looks like. Thank you for slogging your way through all of those lean years with me! What an absurdly insanely impossibly fun run this has been! Just…wow. L G M F D!

  30. What else is there to say? Going for 10 in a row and 13 out of 14. Opponents and media alike taking notice of the skills on display. We have ourselves a good hockey team…an honest-to-goodness, good hockey team. And this thing is just getting started. L G M F D! ** EDIT: That weird purple bar at the top of this post is a meme gone bad that for some reason I can't fully get rid of. Oh well.

  32. If the price is too high for a Marino or Siegs GW I’ll tap out. Or possibly pivot to Bastian. On another note, bought my daughter a personalized HFC jersey…#22 for this year (my wife being diagnosed with breast cancer back in June…last chemo treatment is today) and “FOR MY MOM” as the nameplate. She will absolutely love that.

  34. Even if I have my doubts about Lindy long-term and how much he really has to do with what we’re seeing…this was still a really cool (and creative) gesture on the fans’ part, and an equally cool response by Lindy. Just glad to see everyone (coaches, players and fans) having a such good time with this hockey thing. We’ve just had so little of that. And on that note, I think the core really needed this too. If that 0-2 start had turned into another hole to dig out of…guys like Nico and Jesper are probably starting to head into “Jesus H are we EVER going to stop sucking?!” mode. Now they’re really believing, and it’s a blast to watch.

  36. Another game with a defenseman scoring a big goal. Spaulding made a comment about how Graves had 6 goals in all of last season, compared to 3 already this season. I don't think this necessarily has to do with Graves turning a corner in his offensive ability - he's always had a good shot. The Devils' system this season seems to really include the defensemen in the attack. I've noticed on multiple occasions that Siegenthaler gets a really nice look, but his shot is neither powerful nor accurate, so it rarely leads to anything (or it gets deflected in, but gets called off anyway). He's obviously not known for his offense, but if he worked on his shot, he could probably score quite a few goals in this system. I'm just as excited about this team as anyone, so I don't mean to make this sound negative, but I had a couple of observations... That second power play unit is just atrocious. Tatar looked decent, but Severson doesn't have his normal confidence, and it is otherwise a group of players that haven't scored much all season. Sharangovich must really not be good on the power play, because he's the best shooter on the team, and they still won't put him out there. I really wonder when Ruff is going to shuffle the lines. Probably not until a loss, but a game like this could have easily gone the other way, and you wonder whether the lineup could be optimized. Is Haula adding much to the Hughes/Bratt line other than faceoffs? I'm not sure it's much more valuable than what Mercer could add. I think Mercer could play a role similar to Palat, which would complement Bratt and Hughes well IMO. And as great as Nico has been, he really needs some better linemates. I really like Zetterlund, but I think Shara might be a better option in that spot. Or if Tatar goes invisible again, he could be swapped with Sharangovich. I'm all in favor of balanced lines, but not when it leaves one of our star centers with little to work with. And it's not like that third line has been contributing all that much, other than a couple of disallowed goals. As for Smith, he's still not getting all that much ice time. I really think he is holding Severson back. Severson does not seem like his normal self lately, even if his normal self has those glaring mistakes. It does seem time to give Bahl a try. It's not like Smith is another Lovejoy who is at least somewhat reliable defensively. At worst, there's hardly a difference there between Bahl and Smith. Shara-Hischier-Tatar Bratt-Hughes-Mercer Boqvist-Haula-Zetterlund BMW Siegs-Hamilton Graves-Marino Bahl-Severson Overall, couldn't have said it better than Nico did at the end of the game. Definitely was not a pretty win, but we will take it. Nico is just such a beast. He had an interesting development curve, which started with him on an offense that ran through one player for a couple of years. Then he had to develop a complete game on an absolute garbage team that needed him to be defensively reliable. Not much liberty or opportunity to become that major scorer that we were hoping for. And then there were injuries that never allowed him to gain momentum. He always showed flashes of what he could be, just a monster on the puck. But now that the team has taken a step, it has allowed him to blossom into the offensive threat that he is. Outside of Makar, is there anyone from that draft we are still taking over Hischier? First it was Pettersson, Heiskanen, and Makar (and Suzuki?). Then just Heiskanen and Makar. Now are we at a point where it's just Makar? Didn't mean for that to turn into a novel. LGD.
