That one wasn't luck, that one was karma.

I'm not trolling or saying you guys dont deserve it, you definitely came out flying in overtime and deserved to win it, but to say that our only goal was a "lucky bounce" is a little much. It was a beautiful deflection, give credit where credit is due.

It's not that much of a stretch to say a deflection is luck. Of course it takes some skill to get your stick on a puck to deflect it but a lot of times it's luck that it ends up back in the net since you never know which way a puck is going to deflect most of the time. I'll also say Staal was pretty lucky Whitney missed and the puck bounced off the end board right to him, but like cptjeff said it's karma since that sort of thing happened two times for the Devils in the last game of the season.

No, the only reason that the game even went to OT is because Van Massenhoven doesn't know the rulebook. He blew that high stick call.

The way you phrased the first response seemed like you were. I do agree with you though.

Don't know if this has been posted yet, but I thought it was interesting to have the actual players admit that our Castle is loud... This is posted on NHL.com http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=418789


-- Without question, the RBC Center will be rocking for Sunday's Game 3. But don't expect New Jersey to be intimidated.

"Some people might find it chaotic, but I actually find it fun," John Madden said of playing in Carolina. "It's a really loud building. I don't if it's the way the building's designed, but it's a lot louder there than it is here. It's a good environment to have fun in."

-- Brian Compton

Let's exceed expectations Caniacs!!!

That was absolutely sick hand/eye coordination. I'm guessing you've never played ice hockey?
I have, but an inch higher and that's off the crossbar and who knows what happens from there, that's the luck part to me. If there's any player on either team that looks like they're on the verge of taking over the series to me it's been Parise. But I still think that was a rather fortunate shot as someone that's scored his share of deflections and redirections before destroying my knee. I felt the same way about those goals every time I got one too.

I'm not going to get into that one any more though. Simply put, it was an extremely biased opening paragraph (whether it was the writer or our friends up in Bristol that still hold a grudge) that discredited what was a great game.

I agree with everything said here, I just thought that to call a nice deflection "lucky" was unfair. Good luck in game 3, looking forward to a good one.

That gives the use a little credibility, but it is still a bit shady.

So while it is not as egregious or unethical as first appeared, it is at least gratuitous and an unnecessary interjection given the history of our friends in Bristol.
That line was on the yahoo recap of the game. It wasn't espn that wrote that. They care so little for hockey that I would be shocked if they took the time to do anything but post the story as is.

Translation: I'm bitter that my team's not up 2-0.

Just sayin'.
