    Our first homegrown superstar forward anyway. And certainly the most electrifying player we’ve had since Kovy. 

    Slump seems like a bit much considering they’re still finding ways to win (or at least get a point like against the Preds). They were never going to keep outshooting every team they played by almost double, or keep winning every game 5-2. 

    Anyway, I just finished the game on the dvr, and I thought Wood had his best game in weeks. Nice to see after a pretty rough stretch, and with Bastian missing from that line. 

    Hell of a game for Schmid, too. Hope he’s ok from that collusion at the end. He looked pretty shaken up when Vanecek came out to celebrate with him. 

    Agree, slump does probably sound a bit much. Rather, they just cooled off, but finding ways to get it done is definitely a huge positive. I'm just worried whether they'll be able to handle the entire season. Even though they've played well without Palat; and Schmid has exceeded all expectations, another big injury (God forbid) may actually expose their lack of depth. Interesting to see what the trade period will bring. Meanwhile I'm hoping they remain excited and motivated.

    Think about it…Devils have banked three points in their last two games.  They could’ve come away with none.  They’ll start playing better again, but nice to get goaltending that keeps them in games while they’re fighting it.  And a team that can finish just enough when opportunities are limited.

    True. Goaltending is day and night compared with last year. I'm already thinking about the trade period lol.

    No team is on top of their game all season.  When you find a way to still get points out of those games, that’s a skill in itself.

    Devils are 20-2-1 in their last 23 GP.  That’s sick.

    That goes without saying and I'm rather upset than worried. I kinda expected it and it's better at this time of the season than later. I'm still pleasantly surprised to see them on top of the division.

    They probably could have pulled it out if they had stuck to the original plan for the full two minutes…but just not in the mood to kill them for tonight.  They’re still 9 points clear of the second-place team with the same number of games played.  

    Absolutely. Not a tragedy but certainly a wake-up call.

    Is this a serious question? For the same reason it’s annoying when former Devils players score against us. Can’t believe I have to explain this. 

    Cmon man...former players, former coach...

    The key word is former. Why does it matter who coaches the Preds and how we have a hard time beating them. We want the cup, we need to find the way.

    the devils thoroughly dominated play in the first period. predators got a softy for the first goal and then a lucky bounce for the second. 

    the devils dominated the 2nd period so much it was a miracle they only got 3 goals. 

    third period was slightly more even. but overall I think the devils dominate that game and lose because of a poor decision from their coach and a mediocre effort from their goalie against a gargantuan effort from their opposition’s goalie.

    I lost the count of how many times they turned the puck over.

  7. It's a great season so far but they haven't been sharp lately. Apart from the Rag game, They played very poorly against the caps but got a W. Today they were good only for the first 5 min of the second pd. Preds controlled the game and the last 3 min was absolute crap. Hope they learned the lesson. Being on top of the division is a hard task.
