I've noticed that too, but not just this season - his whole career.  I think it's just his personality - he grimmaces when he misses the net or flubs the puck, not just when he gets hit.

Shesterkin is good. I'm giving a credit where it's due. Rangers are playing with a lot of confidence and they fully deserve their position in the standings...I still hate them though...

They should be good. They buy all the best players, the best available coach wanted to go there, etc. Hopefully they’ll choke like they always do.

Of course they'll choke. Buying all the best players isn't always the recipe (Edmonton), but they are well-coached for sure.

Who did Edmonton ever buy? Their problem is they don’t put enough around their 2 stars (and RNH).

Blackwood is not tracking pucks at all well this season. So many times last night he makes a save and is looking down for the puck and it's gone. At one point he thought he had it covered and a blue jacket has it behind the net.  

It's disappointing that two players we thought we could build around in Ty Smith and Blackwood are playing like they belong in the AHL.

One thing that I am NOT doing anytime soon is assuming that any Devils goaltending tandems with Blackwood in the mix has a chance to be above average…or even average at this point.  Not with a .900 save% and 3.12 GAA in 57 GP since the start of last season…yes, there are other issues, but there’s plenty to be desired when it comes to Mac’s play.

But given the state of the goaltending throughout the system, unless Fitz wants to give anything up to try to improve upon what’s here, Blackwood’s going to get a lot of games.  And he should really count his blessings that the Devils have little choice but to try to let him play his way out of this.

What also sucks is that the Devils are actually scoring some goals lately (23 in their last 6 GP)…but they also give up so damned many.  They’ve given up two goals or less in just 10 games this season…but allowed four or more in 16 GP.  And given the mistakes we see being made time and time again, I can see why the Devils can be so porous.

Which again begs the question…improved PK notwithstanding, why is nASS still fvcking here?!

Oh and BTW the Devils are 13-2-5 when allowing 3 goals or less in regulation + OT (there’s a pair of 4-3 shootout losses in there).  Which gives everyone an idea of how god-awful they are when they they give up 4+…which unfortunately is happening way too fvcking often.

oh RAZU.

wtf that is?

 

Careful, comments like that could be considered racist nowadays 😉

not here though, people have half a brain and realize you’re cracking jokes. But if it was a hockey quote… that’s the half of the brain that is questionable….

I had no clue what RAZU is either... oh well

Blackwood has issues, he was flopping all over the place on crossing passes. And other time too complacent on steering rebounds. The problems are in his head. He has an nhl skill set and good size.  Hopefully he fixes things,  he has next year to prove it. We will hedge again with a FA vet if Bernier is done

Unfortunately subban is still the strongest defenseman on the dump in... thats still a required skill too bad he can't stay behind our goal line, cause he's lazy infront.

Nico and Jack have decent wrist shots, but just a bit shy of beating goals glove high. Bratt has crossed over that line

Was at the game Thursday, erica is even better in person. Wow

Yeah it was an honest wtf is RAZU, white/black whatever. Hopefully you guys know were better than that here. If not I apologize for not making that clear.

Whatever it is, those ads certainly got us talking about it.

I think everyone here knew better (I had no idea what RAZU was either until I looked it up).  But yeah you definitely have people out there who are just looking for things to be offended about.

ruthless but funny at the same time.

 

 

And though I’ve largely gotten used to those jerseys, that damned crest remains the “gift” that will keep on giving.  If only they’d just gone with some variation of the classic NJ crest. Oh well.
