Lineups stolen borrowed from J.R.'s morning skate and the Devils' GDT, respectively. Didn't see a GDT up so I figured I'd throw one together. Don't mean to step on anybody's toes. ;)


Let's Go Blues!

Thanks for getting this up.

Anyways, this should be one hell of a boring game. Trap vs. Trap 2.0. Wonder what team will bore the other one to sleep in order to get the win. All I know is I'm sure the league-wide TV ratings will be high as ever for this one! :sarcasm:

Need a win to stay ahead of Nashville, as I expect them to beat Ottawa.

SirPaste 02-09-2012 04:40 PM

Been waiting for this GDT all day, slow day at work but still too lazy to make one myself. Excited to see what Grachev can do this time around, I like that he is on a line with Bergy and Langs, gives him a chance to succeed. Gotta get this road thing turned around, Lets go Blues!

ItsOnlytheRiver 02-09-2012 04:48 PM

Not expecting much here. The Devils are on a roll, and we're missing too many forwards.

No excuses accepted.

3-0 Devils. :shakehead

My sad prediction. May I be wrong! Please!

bleedblue1223 02-09-2012 04:59 PM

Apparently our system traps the opposition, but it's not a trap.

Hey now, we're not Philadelphia :laugh:

CarvinSigX 02-09-2012 06:30 PM

It's a trap! Maybe the Blues will score short handed tonight. Crazy talk, I know, but I'm predicting another 4-3 game. Good chance to scout Parise too. ;)

Edit: And Cam gets knocked out by Reaves...:)

dao256 02-09-2012 06:49 PM

On paper, this might be the weakest team we've had all year.

St. Louis 1
New Jersey 2

STL: Berglund
NJ: Parise, Clarkson

CarvinSigX 02-09-2012 06:55 PM

Well? Let's be reality here...Reaves is a big bad dude. Cam may be in trouble with Reaves.

Stillflexin* 02-09-2012 06:57 PM

Anyone got a stream for tonight

TylerD1 02-09-2012 06:57 PM

As somebody said in a previous thread I could see Halak stealing this game for us. It's going to be a low scoring game for sure. But I have a feeling the Devils are going to lose one soon or later. What better team to lose to then St Louis!!

Reaves does literally everything better than Janssen did (fisticuffs included) but Cam was a good guy and I wish him well. I could see them dropping em just for ****s and grins but I doubt either is gonna try to murder the other. Come to think of it, I don't even know if Janssen will be dressed tonight.

And yeah, this is definitely the thinnest we've been at forward all year. With the way the Devils are playing I'd be satisfied with an OT point, but NJ is without Brodeur and Larsson and we're capable of winning. We need the second and third lines to manufacture some scoring chances though.

kittensmasher 02-09-2012 07:08 PM

Holy cow...a ton of empty seats.

dao256 02-09-2012 07:10 PM

need a stream.... again... sorry boys.

Where do you find them?

Oberyn 02-09-2012 07:10 PM

Ugh, our forward lines are just...

I'm hoping for a good game for Grachev, I really think he can play a top 9 role for us in the future. Just needs some confidence with more minutes, which he will presumably get on the second line.

Spektre 02-09-2012 07:16 PM

Just score three like last game.

Fred Murtz 02-09-2012 07:19 PM

Halakness gonna eat em up them pucks
