Bratt has been so frustrating lately. In a perfect world he’s not on the top line. 

Bratt leading the team in SOG (5) and scored a goal. This post didn’t age well lol

Red Wings really are historically bad. I mean nowadays in the NHL...it's hard to be this level of bad. Not winning 20 games is hard to do

I’m worried about Blackwood. I can’t believe he let in 1 goal.

And iirc it was a laser beam.

Why in the hell was Louie Dung given a start in the middle of what should have been a 4 game win streak

Domingue definitely was capable of letting in 5 and losing this game. 

I think his forum nickname should be Cinco, after his favorite number of goals to give up. 

In other news, 4 minutes of excitement got the job done, it was like the 9th grade all over again lol.

At least that 3rd period was fun. 4 goals in like 4 minutes. Fun to get a home win at least 

Seems like every Devils home game is an OT/SO loss. I'm certain they must lead the NHL in it

Canadian Hynes said Domingue is playing tomorrow. Sal currently rationalizing about ‘managing’ Blackwood. 🙄

I was at the game tonight. Quiet crowd for the first two periods and rightly so. 
 

So the first two periods my hat was facing forwards. Then I decided to put it backwards right before the 3rd period. And poof! 4 goals in 4 minutes!😀

So my man Pavel Zacha is now 5th on the team in points and 1st in short handed points while being 12th on the team in average time on ice. 

he’s starting to turn into a player, y’all.

Yup he’s killing it. He’s got basically the same scoring stats as Wayne Simmonds. A lot to be excited about.

Well, to be fair, he now has the same scoring stats as Hall did as a Devil...

...just took him 22 more games than Hall to get there.

7 points in Zacha’s last 7 games, but we’ve seen these surges before.  Did notch his 100th and 101st career points tonight.  But  yeah, I have a hard time getting too excited about yet another tease.

I patented the phrase “flashes of adequacy” to describe when Pavel plays well. 7 points in 7 games is great. 6 goals in 55 games, not so much.

Especially when the games stop counting.  Wake me when Zacha has one of these stretches when it isn't second-half twenty points out junktime.

Yeah, it’s really hard to get excited about single digit goals and 25-30 points out of a 4th year player. It’s nice he doesn’t look totally awful, but the fact that he’s tied for 5th in scoring is more an indictment of the team, than it is anything impressive by him. It’s entirely possible he could still break out at some point but I sure as hell wouldn’t bet on it.

He scored the game winning goal in the must-win game to get the Devils into the playoffs against the leafs in 2017, on an absolute beauty too.

but it seems ridiculous (see: right on par with you paste eaters) to say “he hasn’t scored much when it counts”. Since, ya know, he hasn’t played much when it counts either. This team is dog sh!t for the second calendar year in a row.

Tinfoil hat -- Ownership is pulling strings to force playing Domingue for tanking reasons.

Tinfoil hat 2-- They're worried Blackwood might still be dealing with concussion-like issue and would rather not force a heavy schedule on him since the season is lost.

“21 year old Pavel Zacha is not as good as 27 year old former MVP Taylor Hall”, positively riveting analysis like always CR.

I don’t really agree with he only does it when there’s no pressure. That’s more of a goalie thing. Like Cory. Points are points in hockey. It’s not like garbage time in football.

He’s 22. Turns 23 in April.
