GDT: Philadelphia @ DEVILS 10/3/09 - 7pm

Devils NHL.com preview

Devils -- Following a first-round ouster from the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season, the Devils enter the 2009-10 campaign with a new coach (Jacques Lemaire), new backup goalie (Yann Danis) and some new skaters (defenseman Cory Murphy and forwards Ilkka Pikkarainen and Rob Niedermayer). Brodeur played 10 games last season before his biceps injury and returned to appear in 21 more during the regular season -- posting a 2.42 GAA and .916 save percentage while setting the NHL's all-time wins record (557) for goalies. While Lemaire will obviously change a few areas by incorporating his own unique style, expect the Zach Parise-Jamie Langenbrunner-Travis Zajac line to remain intact. The trio combined for 94 goals and 225 points last season.

"This team had a great season last year," Lemaire said. "They must've done something good. I want to keep that. What they did good last year we don't want to change. We'll look where they can improve."

Flyers -- A healthy Daniel Briere, who missed 53 games to injury in 2008-09, will go a long way in solidifying the offensive depth chart for Philadelphia. Defensively, the hard-hitting Chris Pronger was acquired in the offseason to add some muscle and flair along the blue line and goalie Ray Emery returns to the NHL following a one-year hiatus in Europe. Forward James van Riemsdyk, the second overall pick behind Patrick Kane in 2007, will be making his professional debut in hometown New Jersey. The 20-year-old wing, who added 10 pounds of muscle in the offseason and could bolster the Flyers power-play, is from Middletown, N.J.

"Sometimes in sports, the future is now," Flyers chairman Ed Snider said. "And we didn't want to wait too long. Our goal every single year is to win the Stanley Cup and this is no different. But you can't put that burden on one guy (Chris Pronger). People say this is the piece that's going to do it, but it's unfair to him, totally unfair."

Well the Devils 2009-2010 NHL season is finally here! It was a long off summer and here is to a long and successful season this year that hopefully goes all the way to June and celebrating our 4th Stanley Cup Championship! :cheers:

Tonight's game will be Martin Brodeur's 1000th game as a goalie and only Patrick Roy is the only other goalie to reach that milestone (1029). It will be another record Brodeur will have in 30 games or most likely around Christmas time in December. So congrats to Brodeur! Tonight's game if the Devils win will be coach Lemaire's 200th win as a Devils coach.

Flyers Swallow!!!

LETS GO DEVILS!!! :evil:

Without question the HD. That 3rd line has nothing over the franchise in complete disrepair having the keys to the penthouse tonight. I call Shenanigans.
