  1. What a great first period! We need to bury our chances though. 2 shots beat the Lundquist - but not the post. That was a pre-season call by Mcreary at the end of the period, they owe us one. I hope we don't have a second period (or third period) slump, but if we keep playing like we did just now we will be in good shape! BTW - The defenseman look like a different group of guys. Confident, quick outlet passes, I like it! Bryce makes a big difference out there, good hits, and he is getting the puck out of the zone.
  2. 7 game series seem to come down to 2 things - goaltending, and scoring from guys you don't expect. I think the Devils have the inside track here on both... One, our goalie is better - and two, I don't exepect any of the Devil's to score. So we have a lot of chances to get some goals Seriously though... I think there has to be a reason the Rags lost so many games over the year. There may also be a reason they beat the Devil's in 7 of 8. If we are going to win the series, we need to win the first game. If we go in the hole, I think the emotional baggage will be too great. I don't think either team is going any where after this round, so I just hope we beat the Rags so we don't have to listen to them all summer!

  4. Win this draw... Fall on it if you have to. Just don't lose it clean.
  5. This is fine... A penalty is good - free icings. NEed to win the draw and kill that last 30 seconds. We can do this.
  6. Here's a question - if we tie, we get home ice - right? Do we give a sh!t about OT?
  7. Martin looked terrible on the 3rd goal - like he wasn't even trying. On the second goal, he looked like he was screening Marty and got out of position. Not getting down on the guy, but he played 2 bad minutes and cost us the game. Too bad, but it makes Sunday fun. Never seen an 8 game series before.
  8. 3 Things became apparent to me that period: 1) The Flyers have the worst broadcaster in the world. Jonesy is okay, the main commentator doesn't understand hockey, and has no sense of when to use voice inflections. It's like it was his first game or something. Total idiot, and should not be on NHL Network. Besides being biased, he gets excited if the Flyers come through the neutral zone 2 on 2... 2) Marty Brodeur should win the Hart Trophy. This period (whole game) is exhibit A. I don't have to preach to the converted - but how can you not see that he's the best player in the league right now? 3) Lupol is a jerk. Seriously, Brodeur has the puck covered up on one side - and Lupol is absolutely slashing away at Brodeur's leg on the OTHER side. Why isn't the ref calling that? More importantly, when is Clarkson going to "ask" him not to do that (ever) again. That was a fun period though... Honestly, this game means nothing if we lose. Sunday is for home ice, that's all that matters.
  9. Zach must have been practicing that - Chico thought he might do it, and it worked. How cool was that move? Devils deserved this, and it doesn't hurt my feelings to see Boston get a point - they played well. Fun night! I may have an ulcer, but fun night!
  10. That's a royal fvcking. I swear the league hates us. Has one review gone our way?
  11. No chance. The team has been so careful to keep Marty rested and out of too many practices. He's in good shape, not dinged up, and needs to play some games with a play-off atmosphere. The only chance that I see Weeks playing (barring injury) is if we are cemented to our position going into the Rags game. If we are playing the Rags in the playoffs, I would DEFINITELY play Weeks on Sunday.
  12. Regulation win with at least one or two even strength (non-special teams) goal. I'm sick of living off our power-play, shorty, 4:4 goals. We need to start scoring CONSISTENTLY on 5:5. LGD!
  13. Nice period by the Devils... They are finally showing some life. No let downs in the third - let's win this!
  14. Elias with an absolute CANNON! Nice power play.
  15. I can't resist starting this poll... I have never been more frustrated as a hockey fan, but I can't help but start to think that there's more to our losing streak than just poor play on our part. Honestly, as young as our team is it's possible that our players are tired, or aren't making the adjustments needed after playing so many divisional games to have success. After further thought, they shouldn't be tired as Sutter has been responsible in his # of practices. I'm starting to think that the reason we are losing so many divisional games, and having success against teams we see less often is that our rivals (like the Rags) have figured something out... Either they are exposing our defense, playing a better system, or plain just want it more. I just can't believe that guys like Greene and Brookbank suddenly have no talent. They've made it this far - there has to be other factors. Don't get me wrong. If I see either of those two clowns in the street, I can't promise I would swerve to avoid them!
