And all of a sudden, the Devils are 4-1-2 in their last seven, losing once in regulation in their last seven games.

If they can get Gusev to not get buried every shift this team looks very formidable. They’ve figured things out!

Huge win to start the Western Canada road trip. These trips have felt like death sentences for the past few years. Nice to start it off the right way!

Was about to post the same thing.  Obviously still plenty of work to do, but nice early rebound from 0-4-2.

What’s Blackwoods nickname anyway? Usually hockey players just add a “Y” or “er” after someone’s name but Wood is already “Woodsy“ and I know they can’t call him “Blacky”. What about John Holmes? Too far?

Gusev badly needs to be removed from the lineup. He can't play on the fourth line because Hynes likes to have checking players on that unit that he can put out there for d-zone faceoffs, and he can't play with Zajac because that line is relied on to be two-way. So, he has to play him with Hughes, and thus, he has to protect that line and as you saw tonight, we basically had 3.5 lines, and Hughes is rendered ineffective.

Hynes need to give another chances to Hughes with hall and Hischier with Gusev. It’s more balanced. And Boqvist deserve his place in a squad. He’s playing more mature than Hughes and Gusev.

Yup not taking advantage at all of Hughes this way...

On a positive note, Blackwood wasn't just good tonight, he was fantastic. We lose that game handily with Schneider in net, and possibly some other NHL goaltenders as well.

But let's talk about Boqvist. His game was awesome - not that he was spectacular but for his third or so game, I loved what I saw. He was fairly responsible out there, he made some things happen - drew that penalty at the end of OT - and he has a clever snarl to his game I didn't know about. He did some very veteran things out there to be a pest to Winnipeg. With our roster, that man should be playing nightly.

Kind of hard when you come to North America and get less than a handful of games on small ice before you're a healthy scratch over a period where the team only plays 2 games in a 2 week period, then you get thrown in against a hard hitting skilled western conference playoff bound team for the first game back. 

I agree. Goose needs work, but he also needs some time to play. He can't play 3 games in North America, sit in a press box, not play a game for weeks, then expected to come in and look A+ against a good team. Also, will add, don't like him on the Hughes line. He should be with Zajac and Coleman and move Boqvist up.

Ok. Gonna give you guys a scenario. A genie can promise you that the Devils win 5-4 in overtime, but it comes with the caveat that the Devils blew a 4-0 third period lead. Do you say yes or no?

Does a 2-1 SO win mean someone rubbed the genie the right way?

Or in another line. Any line but not Gusev and Hughes on the same. They didn’t work together when opponents are taller and forchecker. Can I say forechecker or I need to use more forecheck?

By the way @SterioDesign, you ever considered moving to Winnipeg? They booed Subban every single time he touched the puck in an apparent “wink wink nudge nudge this has nothing to do with his race”, that seems like your peoples.

Big win - nice to get off the shootout schneid, nicer to do it 2-0 so there's no real sweat at the end.  

They need to work on 3 on 3 - that's been horrible the last two games and they've been lucky to escape without losing there.  No real chances for except on the late power play.

They've got to find someone to fill in for Tennyson.  Can't have someone dragging Butcher down like that.  It's weird, he doesn't look that bad but the results are really awful so far.

One thing I like about this stretch also - Hynes is not coaching like someone who is coaching for his job.  Gusev and Hughes got a late shift in a tie game.  Boqvist got a shift with a minute left.  It would've been easy to bench all 3 guys and ride 9 forwards down the stretch.

Far be it from me to defend either Sterio or the people of Winnipeg, but Nashville and Winnipeg had some pretty big playoff battles when Subban was there.  Is there probably a racial element to it, yeah, but that's at least not all of it.

Their heads are devide. South Park should teach you to not take them seriously
