GDT: Flyers @ Devils 2-1-18 7:00PM


Recommended Posts

Great win last night.  Glad to see Zacha's improved play finally translating to points.   It feels like we've been saying he's played his best game as a Devil for 3 weeks straight but yet his production was still Josefson-esque.  I was starting to get a little nervous.    

Huge goal by Hischier as well and it was good to see Palmieri finally get a true sniper type goal.  Very little space for him to bury that shot.

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

If I could figure out how to keep this page of the thread open and then also go back to quote you and I both, I'd love to re-read what we wrote about the team having some come-from-behind victories earlier in the year after everyone else was seeming to pile on and say this team was dead, gutless, heartless, soft, etc.  I'm not sure who else might have said the same thing, but you and I echoed essentially the same thing and recalled how they had at least a few games where they showed some late rallies and a never-say-die attitude.  Oh, and my Zacha prediction about him heating up soon was dead on too.  And it only took one game :D 

I missed most of this game because I had to work late, but I caught glimpses here and there, and saw the very end in the car on the way home.  Folks, this team is rough around the edges, but they're special.  They need a little polish in certain areas, but they have promise and potential. There's another level to this team that we haven't seen yet.  I don't know if they'll be able to reach it by the end of this season, but good things are coming.  We saw part of it last night.  Let's all relax again.  Breathe.  Enjoy yesterday's win for another 24 hours.  Then on to the Penguins tomorrow.

Oh and also, while that wasn't the best game from Kinkaid, I think he's getting way too much sh!t from people.  3 goals allowed, but the first two were pure luck and not his fault at all.  The first one the guy was wide open, and it was on the PP (actually, 5 on 3, wasn't it?), and the second one, also another PP goal, and he made the first save with his pad which was nice, but none of our defenders cleared that idiot Simmonds from the crease.   Hell, even the 3rd one wasn't that bad....it caromed off Severson's skate and changed direction at the last minute, leaving him just barely not enough time to get over to the other post.  Again, not his best game, but by no means did he leave the team out to try.  If anything, he played fairly well.  Not only that, but he's not used to playing this many games, at least not this often.  Cut him some slack.

Pride night wasn't even close to being the reason the majority of people didn't go to the game last night. You all should know that our attendance issues have been an ongoing issue. This is why I think it's a joke the ticket rep even tried to blame what was most likely only a handful of stupid people and not a large portion of our fan base for not wanting to go to the game cause of pride night. Besides the one Saturday game which had plenty of empty seats too the attendance for January has been horrible. The ticket prices are just too high for a lot of sections, especially the upper corners...

The ticket prices have been high. Of course I'm always trying to go on weekends. I hate the whole concept of different games on different nights being a different price. Just set a price and then if you anticipate difficulty selling during the week, offer coupons/discounts.

Not sure what the prices were for this game but I will say that I did see plenty of people threatening on social media of selling their tickets to last night's game specifically because of pride night.  I found it both funny and sad that so many people got bent out of shape over what amounted to a few rainbow colors splashed around the arena and a couple of acknowledgements.

So ignorant. You wouldn't expect that of people on social media.

Yeah it is a cesspool.  The other funny thing is that most of the people upset about pride night have plenty of posts calling others snowflakes.

I saw that before and would love for the Devils to put more of these types of videos out.
