I don't want to take all the credit , but ever since I called Nico out in my festive Devil's song he has basically been on fire.  That's the player we were all hoping we drafted, he is trying thi

He's been using his shot much more effectively lately. Hopefully all part of the post-Hynes improvement the team is going through.

slim pickens these days outside of Palms.

Palms and Coleman. But it would be nice to see other players look dominant for large portions of games instead of just an occasional goal every so often. Lately Nico and Mac have been carrying the team most nights.

Be nice if him and Nico got some help. 

Palms has actually been pretty consistent this season...less streaky.  Some big goals too.  Goose has improved steadily since his sitdown with Elias.  And Coleman has a stubborn nose for the net.  I agree that they need MORE help, but there’s guys contributing.

Absolutely annoying game to be at. Can't stand these idiotic fans. Burn these awful white retro jerseys too.

Yeah as much as I hate Rangers fans first and foremost...the Islander faithful are moving up my sh!tlist.

brutal. 

These are the kind of games where they should take no solace in the point. Late lead blown and then terrible change to cost them the second point. Damn it.

Disagree completely.  They were trailing and had to battle back twice to tie the game and then again to get the lead. Yes they gave it up and it went to OT, but the Isles are no slouch, and played just as tough and better.  If we fix a few of the issues from tonight, we're a very solid team. 

This team really should be celebrating the fact that, over the past two weeks or so, not only have they been playing much better overall and consistently, but they've been doing it against basically the best teams in the league.  The Caps, the Bruins, the Stars, the Avs twice, the Isles twice, I mean c'mon...

This coaching staff has a huge opportunity to encourage this group of players and build some big time morale.  It's been well earned.

I was there tonight....Islander fans still have nothing on Rag fans in terms of obnoxiousness.

Yeah, I’m not even talking about just points and goals though. Palms, Goose, and Coleman have been good on that front. But we only have one guy right now who looks dominant night after night and is a total pain for the other team on a consistent basis.

It's really too bad, Gusev was possibly the Devils' best or second best player all night tonight - he had a really good game - and then ultimately he went full Gusev at the end and it cost the Devils. A better decision with the puck there probably keeps the game going.

That said, the Devils lost their legs in the second period again - big time - but they picked it back up and got enough luck to stay in the game and the chances for the Devils were pretty good at the end there - they weren't limited to a perimeter game. Still, the Islanders were the better team for most of the game.

Yep just 6 defensemen and we'll be a much better team on a consistent basis?

I mean, Vatanen and Subban are starters on any team in the league, so more like 4... :P

Speaking of PK, he notched his 10th point tonight...wish it hadn’t taken him 42 games to get it.

yeah but Vats sh!t the bed big time tonight so he can piss off for now too 💩. Plus I still think he gets dealt.

Actually Severson, Greene and Butcher could start on most teams too but the sum of the parts here is a major liability game in and game out.

Devils fans....Still dealing with sh!t

Haven’t the devils had a better record than Phoenix since Hall was traded?

Don’t care what happened, hope Sami Varanen steps on a fvcking LEGO tonight. 3-1 you have to at least GET A PUCK IN THE VICINITY OF THE GODDAMNED NET

And Boqvist flubbing the breakaway without getting a shot on net.  That's almost inconceivable, getting both a 3-on-1 and a breakaway and nary a shot on either.

Yet it still shouldn't have even come down to that if Brainless Severson wasn't directly responsible for two goals against.

You were lucky then, was miserable near me. 

I had quite a few Isles fans near me tonight, but they were fine. All they did was cheer for their team, and they they managed to do that without being overly obnoxious, vulgar, or confrontational. The worst that happened was they tried getting a ‘Let’s go Islanders’ chant going with the other Isles fans in our section, but we shut them down with an opposing ‘Let’s go Devils’ chant every time they tried.

Missed it during the game when it happened but MB ate a puck and lost some teeth. Hard to do with the mask on, no? Poor bastard deserves better.

They said on the post game radio show that's the fire time we ever played a game against the Islanders and didn't take a penalty. 

I heard that too. We witnessed history! 🤣
