  1. GDT: Devils @ Tampa Game 5 4/21/2018 3:00 PM NBC, NBCSN

    RECAP Perfect example of a game why you don't simply allow teams to possess and shoot the puck from the perimeter. All 3 goals scored in this game came from low danger shots. Overall, they battled hard all series. Tampa was the only team that the Devils were truly overmatched against. Boston or Pittsburgh would have been the best matchups for the Devils. Washington, Philly, or Columbus would have been tough, but are beatable teams. Tampa was basically a no chance matchup. Schneider's play in the series makes me feel confident he can bounce back next season. Next season we need, the following. A new system that is centered around constant pressure on the puck A true number 1 d-man, preferably a LHD, although I won't say no to Erik Karlsson. Zacha to not wait until the All-Star break to turn his game on. Overall though he's gotten better in each season Schneider to bounce back. A 2nd line center GOALS AGAINST RECAP Goal 1 Zajac needs to either ice it or flip that puck out. No chance for Schneider Goal 2 Similar to the 1st goal Not as much of a screen, but still a screen. More saveable than the 1st goal POSSESSION ES CF: 42 to 38 ES FF: 29 to 32 ES SF: 23 to 25 ES SCF: 19 to 17 ES HDCF: 9 to 4 All CF: 47 to 59 All FF: 34 to 51 All SF: 27 to 38 All SCF: 20 to 31 All HDCF: 10 to 7 SCORE AND VENUE ADJUSTED POSSESSION CF: 35.39 to 38.25 FF: 25.29 to 31.68 SF: 19.43 to 24.58 SCF: 14.97 to 17.06 HDCF: 7.08 to 3.99
  2. GAME 3: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, CNBC, MSG+

    RECAP Hedman must feel like a real tough guy cup checking a 19 year old. Resiliency, this team has it. Games like this one made me really miss playoff hockey. Schneider was awesome tonight. Games like this is why Brian Boyle was brought to this team. The Devils still have never been swept in a playoff series. GOALS AGAINST RECAP Goal 1 Missed assignment by Coleman Almost impossible save to make without getting lucky. Goal 2 Another missed assignment Stoppable and should have been saved.

  3. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    RECAP The Devils were the better team Play like that again on Monday, and they should win. Difference in the game was goaltending where oddly enough Kinkaid was not really at fault for any of the goals he allowed. Vasilevskiy was actually very good. Making the big save is extremely important, and Kinkaid did not do that despite the fact none of the goals against were his fault. Tampa didn't have the puck much this game, but they executed their plays very well. This game also shows the importance of simply getting the puck back rather than trying to keep the puck to the outside. The middle of the ice ISN'T the most important ice. The entire 200 by 85 sheet of ice IS the more important ice. Hynes needs to learn this if he wants to have any sustained success in this league. Hynes also needs to be more aggressive with pulling the goalie in the playoffs. If there's less than 4 minutes to go, and you're down by 2 with an offensive zone face-off, the goalie needs to be out. Face-offs are killing this team. GOALS AGAINST RECAP Goal 1 Missed defensive assignment Great shot by Point Stoppable Overall it wasn't Kinkaid's fault Goal 2 Great pass and great tip by Killorn. Stoppable Not Kinkaid's fault Goal 3 Nice deflection by Johnson Stoppable Difficult save, but probably should have been stopped. Goal 4 Terrible break Nothing Kinkaid could do Kinkaid is completely absolved. Goal 5 Another tough break Again, nothing Kinkaid could do POSSESSION ES CF: 55 to 48 ES FF: 47 to 37 ES SF: 38 to 22 ES SCF: 31 to 28 ES HDCF: 9 to 8 All CF: 64 to 55 All FF: 54 to 44 All SF: 44 to 26 All SCF: 35 to 34 All HDCF: 9 to 10 SVA POSSESSION CF: 43.77 to 47.57 FF: 37 to 36.77 SF: 29.5 to 21.03 SCF: 24.32 to 28.52 HDCF: 5.14 to 8.06
  4. GDT: Devils@Lightning, 4/12/18, 7:00pm, MSG+

    RECAP Too many mistakes were made. The game wasn't all bad. There were definitely spurts where the Devils outplayed them. Energy and compete level were certainly there. They were able to contain Kucherov and Stamkos. GOALIE RECAP Goal 1: Missed defensive assignment, not on Kinkaid. Goal 2: Face-off loss plus bad defense, not on Kinkaid. Goal 3: Bad break plus bad defense by Moore, not on Kinkaid. Goal 4: Forced turnover, plus a screen plus a perfect shot, not on Kinkaid. POSSESSION ES CF: 48 to 60 ES FF: 35 to 45 ES SF: 24 to 28 ES SCF: 14 to 28 ES HDCF: 3 to 7 All CF: 58 to 65 All FF: 43 to 49 All SF: 31 to 32 All SCF: 21 to 30 All HDCF: 4 to 7 SCORE AND VENUE ADJUSTED POSSESSION CF: 41.46 to 61.91 FF: 30.65 to 45.47 SF: 22.07 to 27.74 SCF: 13.7 to 27.44 HDCF: 2.91 to 6.73
  5. Who do you want in the playoffs?

    Against Boston 5 on 5 CF: 135 to 97 FF: 104 to 72 SF: 82 to 54 GF: 6 to 5 SCF: 69 to 44 HDCF: 26 to 15 Against Tampa 5 on 5 CF: 120 to 152 FF: 104 to 122 SF: 75 to 84 GF: 7 to 4 SCF: 59 to 73 HDCF: 25 to 27
  6. Who do you want in the playoffs?

    We went 3-0 against Tampa, but we were outoplayed in the final 2 games of the series. We got help from bad Tampa goaltending in one of those games. Game 1 was back in October, and ended in a shootout which doesn't really tell us much. Visually, we were much better against Boston than Tampa.
  7. Who do you want in the playoffs?

    Only from dumb mistakes and bad penalties. We dominated them in every other area, and they showed they really struggled with the Devils speed.
  8. Who do you want in the playoffs?

    I want Boston. They can't handle our speed, and we dominated them during the regular season despite the head to head record.
  9. Devils vs. Maple Leafs, 4/5/18, 7:00 pm

    RECAP YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!

    It's all moot now, but don't act as if the Devils losing 2 in a row, and the Panthers winning 3 in a row is all that unthinkable. Thankfully it's all moot now.
  11. 2017-2018 Out of Town Thread

    Ok and where did I dispute any of this?
  12. 2017-2018 Out of Town Thread

    It's called being realistic. If the Devils were the Panthers, I'd say that if we win our last 3, we'd be in good shape to make the playoffs.
  13. GDT: Devils vs. Rangers, 4/3/18, 7:00 pm

    But why did he say "noose"? That's what makes it eery . He probably meant "leash" though.
  14. 2017-2018 Out of Town Thread

    Being 5 points ahead this late in the season has never felt more uncomfortable. The fact we have to beat one of Toronto or Washington doesn't make me feel too good. Good news is, neither team has anything to play for. I just hope Boston really cares about the division and plays hard on Thursday. I also don't see the Flyers losing to both the Canes and Rags.
  15. GDT: Devils vs. Rangers, 4/3/18, 7:00 pm

    RECAP They didn't just win this game, the dominated it which showed me they were focused. This game was needed, because you don't want to go in a situation having to play both Toronto and Washington with your season on the line. It's still the case that the season is on the line for now, but at least now winning BOTH games doesn't become a necessity. Hall is good at playing the sport of ice hockey. One thing I did not like is how Severson has been treated He's incredibly important to the blue line Both Mueller and Lovejoy have been great, but they should either go with 7 D, or rotate them in and out. Those guys being in should not be at the expense of Severson. BTW, did Dano say that Lou put the "noose" on him? I get what he was getting at where Lou wanted Kenny to be a shut down guy instead of an offensive puck moving guy, but I think Kenny meant to say "leash". GOALIE RECAP Goal 1: Impossible to stop Goal 2: Stoppable, but you can't really kill him here.
