What a gutless team that doesn't fight back and doesn't score.  

Devils are due for a win against these punks. Let’s put January behind us and start February off with a big divisional win.  LGD

Now beat Boston next week and pummel Marchand

So glad Hynes continued showing patience with Zacha, his talent is really starting to come through now and it looks like he's figured things out. We may have created a monster with this kid. Future 40 assist man.

I’m fvckin dying laughing here. Not saying you — I really don’t remember if it was you so I promise I’m not calling you out — but like three weeks ago 75% of this forum called him a bust and now we’re using the term “monster”.

for the record? I agree. I’ve been the most obnoxious Zacha supporter on the forum. Just think it’s hysterical.

Mixed feelings about this game - 2 regulation points vs what should've been a better performance against a "tired" team with a rookie goaltender in the net. Happy for Nico who finally got a break and a very timely one. It's Zacha's turn now.

Not sure how you can watch that game and say “mixed feelings”. They had a rookie goaltender? We had a borderline AHL goaltender. The first and third period of that game was domination.

I think Zacha gets a ton of support on this board. He has a couple good games and he’s a monster, etc. As I’ve said, I think a lot of it is wishful thinking, not based on what he’s done but what he could do. It was 2 weeks ago when he had a huge point scoring drought. 

I think he’s developing, he’s showing signs of being a solid player, and I hope he keeps doing so. He’s come a long way from being a healthy scratch.

Exactly right. We win that game easily but for soft goaltending and two terrible penalties that resulted in goals.

I say Zajac’s instigator penalty is terrible not because I don’t agree with his actions, but surely a guy like Gudas could have been goaded into fighting Travis Zajac without having to take the extra penalty. I mean really, it’s Gudas.

Also, Zajac beat the sh!t out of Gudas. It was GLORIOUS.

I don’t know what got into him, dude got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

Or, he’s Travis Zajac from an alternate Earth, and they switched places. I haven’t decided yet.

strange game tonight.

first off - a light crowd for thursday night vs flyers - maybe 13k. my season ticket rep said this was even a low priced game and they still had a surprisingly low draw. he honestly said it had something to do with pride night. he had a couple STH sell these tickets back to the devils and specifically said that pride night was the reason. honestly made me sick to hear that but whatever. what's great about this country is that you can be a disgusting bigot and still have the same rights as the most caring selfless person ever.

as for the game - i thought the flyers were the stronger team until mid way through the third. the devils weren't bad necessarily, but i thought the flyers played better.

greene HAS to clear that puck on the 2nd flyers PP goal - i was disgusted with that.

GWG notwithstanding, i didn't think nico had that great a night. he had several gaffes on the PP's and just was not crisp or quick tonight - he's absolutely getting to where he's wearing down as the youngest guy in the league in his first year.

zacha was really good tonight - two primary assists were great and he skated well tonight.

and gudas is just an absolute piece of sh!t - good on zajac to take him on.

He said in his postgame interview he has to contribute another way since the offense isn’t coming. Gotta respect that mentality.

Our borderline AHL goaltender has been a long term backup. This Lyon guy is our Appleby. If being outshot in the first period called domination then I guess I'm missing something here. We were better in the third, but how many of us including you were sure we wouldn't crap it up in the final minute? Flyers were faster and sharper despite our "domination". That's my mixed feelings.

You're right right it is funny most of the forum wrote him off. I've been a defender of his but also acknowledged when his performance has been poor. Bottom line though is 20 year old prospects take time. You don't give up on sixth overall picks so soon.

My uncle (Flyers fan) said this game proves that the NHL is in the devils pockets; they’re always the beneficiaries and get all of the calls.

i told him sorry wrong number.

I'm a die hard fan. I'm sure you are too. We'll take 2 points, but you need to take off your rose-colored glasses.

You don’t have to be happy if you don’t want to, but I’m gonna go ahead and not let you piss in my Cheerios. Go devils.

You do understand what the “but for” in his sentence means, right? Because you forgot to bold it and seems like you missed it.

I'm happy, just sharing some concerns. Go ahead with your Cheerios, it's safe.

Yeah I think you missed something. They scored on those two penalties. If they didn’t, they’d only have had one goal. Which they wouldn’t have had without soft goaltending. I’m not sure how that’s rose colored glasses stuff.

I hate Gudas as much as the next guy. I mean I really fvcking hate him. But.

1. That was an obvious unintentional hit on Palmieri. He was jumping out of the way of his own player, Palmieri happened to be where his big oaf ass was falling. That’s a clear interference penalty and they got it right. fvck him, but not a dirty play.

2. I watched that fight with Zajac and Gudas about 8 times. I think Gudas may have pulled back a little. A “I fvcked up and this is part of the game” type move. There is no way Zajac should have landed that many without taking one single swing.

The key word is IF. Both teams had 2 PP goals. The rose-colored glasses stuff is not seeing how "tired" flyers were giving us a hard time all night. It was anybody's game although we had an advantage...

I think our conversation is pointless. Let's just enjoy the win.

I doubt that was the main reason. The upper corner sections were almost completely empty, the vast majority of  those aren't season ticket holders anyway. The prices are just still priced wrong especially for those sections which are the highest in the building.

My whole post was premised on the concept of “if”. But that’s fine.

I agree the hit wasn’t dirty. But he’s a dirty player so it looked dirty.

I hope that was the case, otherwise he got his @ss beat by one of the slowest moving people in the league.
