I didn't have that issue, but I'm just glad I don't have to watch it on crappy MSG+2...which is ALSO what the game is on on Saturday.

On four separate occasions, they were doing the segway from commercial to game play, usually where Deb is talking about her hair or something, and the went back to commercial. When they came back, the game was going on.

And it's not just tonight, it happens every single game, and even on the nights where I'm watching live.
Never had that problem either on other game nights. Very weird.

Everything on this board is half-assed, you know that by now. I can't do the GDT every time.

I'm pretty sure Larsson got sat last night after the shift where he took a big hit and Horton rang one off the crossbar

Larsson didn't have his strongest game last night. I hope he bounces back tonight.

It's only normal for him to have a off game here and there. He's our best d-men at the age of 19, we have to expect those kinds of games once in a while.

The one thing that I've noticed and I don't really like about his game is the lack of hustle he has when he commits a turnover. I'd like for him to skate back into the play like a madman instead of seing him "glide" back into the action.

Maybe he has so much poise that it looks like he's gliding but I'd like a little more effort on his part when he screws up.

I'd like it if a defenceman who will remain nameless would stop trying to do the centre's job in the defensive zone and just play positional hockey

He's 13-0-1 in the calendar year. Pretty incredible.

He was a healthy scratch last game. Ruff is/was sending him a message. He had two -3 games in the three games prior to the scratch, and he was on the ice when Miller got trucked--it's one thing for Andrej Sekera to do nothing, it's a separate thing for the 6'8'' Myers to do nothing. He'll be a game-time decision. If he does play, I'd guess that Gragnani comes out.
________

Also, Ruff put Roy with Vanek-Pominville in the 3rd period the other night, so I wouldn't be surprised if he goes back to them tonight. In addition, McCormick is ill, so they've called up Corey Tropp from Rochester. My guess on the lines:

Vanek-Roy-Pominville
Leino-Adam-Stafford
Gerbe-Gaustad-Boyes
Kaleta-Ellis-Tropp

Good luck tonight, but not too much.

He was a healthy scratch. He's been having a couple of rough games and did absolutely nothing to defend Miller when he got steamrolled by Lucic.

Ruff was probably sending his giant a message.

Maybe slammer should stop watching with his friends. When he watched with his Toronto friend, we lost 5-3. Yesterday he watched with his Bruins buddy, 4-3L. Stop it already, slammer!!
We should make set up a petition to ban Slammer from watching Devils hockey with his mates

No Doc

I've been waiting for this one since it was announced on ESPN America for us Euros. Was planning on watching Zubbie's 1000th game on big screen in HD and with Doc calling it, even putting it all on THX surround did not seem too much

Well, the boys better make this one truly memorable for our Daniusaurus Rex !
Go Zubbie

No Doc makes me sad.

Maybe that`s the way NBC wants us to forget. It`s a conspiracy!

I'd like to also ask that the center or strong side winger also do his job and stay below the blue line when the D are coming around the net to give him an outlet pass rather than trying to throw the puck through the forecheck creating turnover after turnover.

Way too many times the D was presented with no good pass options and they threw it off the boards, or try to go through someone only to have it stay in the zone. I think we're getting a little to anxious to exit the zone lately. Normally if the pass wasn't there they would curl back and go D to D waiting for the forwards to come back an reset. The Boston forecheck was preventing that, but there should still be a short pass to be had.

Our wingers were better about presenting targets for the defencemen on the breakout under Lemaire. He even had Kovalchuk coming low to help. Now we have a lot of guys flying the zone early.
