  1. i said this before and it just needs to be repeated: watch the replay and ONLY look at jack’s footwork. there are zero players with edgework like that. he looks like barry sanders in cleats on turf.
  2. Kane looks like when you’re playing NHL on the XBOX and your controller batteries run out. bizarre.
  3. i agree that it’s absolutely ridiculous that the referees awarded a 4 minute double minor for a run of the mill high stick that didn’t draw blood.
  4. hughes is passing taylor hall this season, which is absolutely fvcking terrible news for all of you and most importantly for jack hughes.
  5. penalty kill stunk but more people need to talk about the bogus 4 minute call. from what i know, a double minor can only be assessed if blood was drawn. they reviewed it — as allowed — to see if it was INTENTIONAL, which would be a 5 minute major and an ejection. the fact that they gave chicago a 4 minute powerplay for a run of the mill “happens every game” high stick is something Ruff needs to ask aloud publicly. Bratt’s penalty was absurd. No call on the boarding at the end of regulation was absurd. Horrific game by the zebras tonight made this game closer than it should’ve been. 1-0. Let’s go.
  6. i throw elbows, spit and poop on people until it’s mine if it touched my hand. sorry kid, it’s mine.
  7. that jack hughes goal was special, spectacular, incredible, amazing. the edgework with his skates; you watch that play and say “why can’t anyone else do this?”. it’s because they can’t. the ability to change direction, stop, and start on a fvcking dime on the ice is out of this world good. game-breaker good. best fvcking player in the national hockey league in a few years good. we are so lucky to watch this budding SUPERSTAR. that’s what he is. a fvcking superstar.
  8. my brother had to scalp tickets outside because his usual “walk to the box office 5 minutes before game time” trick didn’t work. they were sold out. not everyone who has a ticket goes to the game.
  9. subban’s been absolutely brutal. not only slow, but he’s also whiffed on like 4 shot attempts.
  10. Siegenthaler has had a really active stick so far. He's made a few solid plays.
  11. Mercer has first game jitters. Totally expected but he'll have to snap out of that quickly if Ruff is going to keep him up. Twice he had the chance to make the simple play -- get it deep or get it out of the zone -- and both times he futzed around trying to make a great pass. The second one cost the Devils a PK.
  12. that play and that pass from Zacha was *chefs kiss*.
  13. not going to overreact but dougie hamilton is on pace for 1,240 goals this year and that would be dooooope.
  14. hearing arlette makes me miss my season seats so much. ALL RIGHT ARLETTE!
  15. https://www.streameast.live/nhl/new-jersey-devils-chicago-blackhawks/ this has HD right now
  16. lol it’s being broadcast on NHL network so it’s not on ESPN+. i have to illegally stream the first game of the year, neat, can’t wait.
  17. Devils win 5-2. Empty net goal caps a 3-goal third period. Hughes with 3 points. Zacha with 2 goals. MB3 with 1 trip to the ER for an erection lasting longer than 6 hours.
  18. wasn’t us! i was worried it might be
  19. This is the "bold predictions" thread not the "what was in your last wet dream" thread.
  20. I misremembered and edited the post, you're 100% right. And it was Forsberg, not Sakic. I was 9 so you'll have to forgive the memory
  21. As Gomer tells it, that 2001 team was a little bit overconfident. Despite the fact that Colorado had a better season, despite the fact that Colorado was heavily favored, the team was like "yea this is ours." He said after the game 5 win, the feeling was "hey, awesome, now we get to win it in front of the fans." Even after the game, he said the feeling was "yea that's annoying that we've gotta travel back to Colorado, but there's no way we're actually gonna lose". He said Pepe was a HUGE voice in the locker room, and underrated in terms of how much he meant to the team during their runs at staying focused -- Stevens was more of a "lead by example" and "lead in practice", but Pep was the guy telling people not to get ahead of themselves. One of the interesting things he tells that fans probably don't give enough thought to is -- as he explains it -- the real reason the team lost the Stanley Cup that year... the first round matchup. The Devils were up 3-0 on Carolina and totally took their foot off the gas. Gomez said the feeling in the locker room was "we can beat these guys in our sleep". When they lost game 4 to Carolina in Raleigh, the room was actually laughing and relaxed -- too relaxed -- just saying "ah yea we'll wrap this up in game 5 at home". When they go lose that game, they have to fly back to raleigh, win, fly back to NJ and then face the very rested Maple Leafs. It kind of set the tone for a little bit of a slump going into the final two rounds, and every little bit helps.
  22. One of my earliest hockey memories is Jagr scoring with a minute left and then again in overtime in 1999. That finished up a back-to-back losing to the 8 seed as a 1 seed, right? When you hear players talk about what was missing in 97-99 AND what was missing in 2001, they all say it was Pepe. Scott Gomez even went as far to say if the Devils paid him what he wanted instead of letting him go to Phoenix, they "win in 5 games against Colorado."
