Man, Nico is deadly down low, behind the net.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Hall and Nico show tonight. Both were flying the entire game. Especially Hall. And Nico made some beautiful passes. Really happy Boyle got a goal on Hockey Fights Cancer night was just awesome. Loved that Hynes gave him an A for the game too. Cory played great tonight. 

Also, fvck those officials. Can’t remember last time I was that pissed over a missed call.

I was at the game. Only home game I’ll be able to make it to this season. Was fortunate enough to sit two rows behind the glass above the circle. Here’s some observations:

1. Taylor Hall is the best player we’ve had on our team since Kovalchuk and it isn’t even close. Right now I’d say he should be getting mentioned in the Hart conversation.

2. Nico Hischier is 18 years old and is simply always one step ahead. With more strength, that will come from age, this is a franchise player. He is spectacular to watch.

3. Pavel Zacha looked like a top-6 player tonight. He had some smart plays on both ends of the ice. Hope this is a confidence builder for him. 

4. Will fvckin Butcher is dat dude. His assist was one of the prettier plays I’ve ever seen live, and it happened right in front of me. 

5. Kevin Clarke announced Taylor Hall as the second star, by saying “with 4 assists, Taylor Hall!!!!”. Hmm.

6. Adam Henrique was fvcking brutal to watch. Playing with no confidence and seemingly no skill. No idea what’s going on between the ears there, but it’s not pretty.

7. Stafford should be a healthy scratch as soon as we call someone up from the AHL or promote MoJo from the IR. Holy actual balls is he bad.

8. Kevin Hayes winked at my wife three times during warmups. nose.

9. My first game at the Rock in 2 years, felt almost like a playoff atmosphere. Loud, loud, loud. Also, there were a total of zero Rangers Suck chants, at least not that I heard. Will make some people here happy.

Good win.  Good 2 points.  This team can nail a mini run here if it keeps playing well and the schedule looks favorable..   I get the feeling that this Devils team isn't just a hot start team, and it's going to be in the mix for a spot.  The D and the exits seem much better and have been as this season has progressed.  The structure, maintaining pressure, holding the O zone..it's there.
