Halak thought about going after that pass and came out of his net, realized he wasn't going to get to it and had to back up. A lucky break for NJ though but then that's NJ in a heartbeat isn't it.
Parise breaks his stick, goes to the bench and ends up with a ****ing breakaway.
Pleks played well tonight. Played with a lot of grit and emotion. In fact, I think the team overall played really well tonight. MAB wasn't great. Gill & Mara scared me at several points in the 3rd.
Oh well, we needed 3 out of 4 pts in these two games after losing two and we got'em.
Now, we get a 4 day break.
Let's see where we are in the standings when we play again next Thursday.
Lapierre may need a night off in the pressbox and maybe bring up Pyatt again and let Pyatt and White show him they are ready to step up to the big club. Lapierre is best when he is hounding and aggravating his opponent but he is not doing that right now.
The players on both sides change, the coaches come and go, heck even Brodeur was injured last year and yet the one constant remains: The Devils beat us every single time (aside from 07-08) and usually in the most excruciating ways possible.
Getting 1 point against them is parade worthy with our history against them.
