Feels wrong not to have a game day thread so better late than never. 

They didn't play their best but it was a fantastic crowd and Vitek was awesome. Dougie with another ot winner too. Hope they keep the wins coming on home ice and Vegas is gonna be tough. 

Also the hibachi stuff was great lol...

Yeah I was there in the Lofts and it felt like damned near the whole second period was played in my end of the ice…Devils have gotten their fair share of breaks as of late.  Was surreal…you see the Pens score in OT, then the too many men call, then a Devils PP, then Hamilton’s laser-beam winner.  Ugly win but a win all the same.  I’ll take it.

I only saw the 1st period (was watching the Bengals game), did Nico look ok in the 2nd and 3rd? I know he was out there for the OT winner, so I assume he’s good. 

Yeah seemed ok.  Got the secondary assist on the GW goal.

Has that ever happened before? I don't recall seeing it. I actually didn't hear the whistle in the arena even though it was crystal clear on the TV broadcast. 

Can’t say I ever saw it either, but the refs waved it off quickly.  Was nice to have renewed hope.

Whew, welcome back njdevs.com.   I thought we lost you there.   

As for the game, that VV save with his blocker was the save of the year for NJ, right?   Especially since it ultimately helped lead to the Devils winning 2-1.

It got bumped to 7:30 cause of it too, I hate that even more 

That doesn’t bother me quite as much but the ESPN+ experience just feels…wrong.

I’m going tomorrow. So I get to avoid whatever sh!tty announcers they saddle everyone with 🤣

Nice…still gotta do a game with you and Crisis this year.  Circumstances will be just a tad better this year, heh heh.

Honestly I’ll take whatever ESPN+ gives us- it beats the coverage from NHL Network - whoever the girl was and Weekes calling the game from the studio sounded a lot more like they were calling a parade than doing pbp and color.   I don’t get why they can’t just cover in person.   It saves money, but it cheapens production value greatly.

Hopefully we have a beer at the season finale in June rather than April.

I refreshed NJDevs about 700 times during the game. No one is happier that this site is back than my wife. Another game that the Devils would have lost a year ago. It’s so cool having goaltending win games for us instead of lose them for us.

Yeah I really thought the site was dead.  Glad that it’s not.

Tomorrow’s game is on ESPN+.  Hate that sh!t.  

Meanwhile I love it cause the Msg Go app sucks, streams have been awful lately and I’m not spending the money to get NHL Network
