Why Avery is sitting is beyond me. Holy hell. Torts is starting to piss me off with this.

I'm all about Mitchell sitting for Avery, WTF!

Big game for both teams.

Going to take at least 3 goals to win this tonight. Hank has to come up big.

Kovy & Parise will be looking to exploit our D for sure.

"playoff like atmosphere" is not and overstatement.

If Richards is back to normal it could make all the difference.

Let's go boys!

I was really against not signing Stralman. I was a fan of his even though he didn't have the best camp. I think it was the 900k price tag that turned Lou away (seeing as they only signed Sykora for 650). Then he realized we needed a guy like that and traded for Foster. I wish we had Tallinder and Greene though!

I'm pumped for tonight. Can't believe we had to wait so long to see the Devils.

Debut for Bickel though and Erixon hasn't been up since October though, now they're a pairing. I'm expecting a "period of adjustment".


How's Zajac looked since he's been back?

Just thinking about the MDZ-Stralman pairing getting stuck on the ice against Kovy and Parise is enough to give me nightmares. It's going to happen, too. I'm not incredibly worried about the Erixon-Bickel pair, because I know Torts' will give them sheltered minutes, as he always does with that bottom pair. But our 2nd pairing is going to be playing big minutes, there's no way around it. Stralman, for as well as he has been playing lately, is soft and prone to getting torched on the outside.

Benching Avery for this game is just a bad roster move. For as inconsistant as he is, you have to know he's going to bring his A-Game against Broduer, Kovy, and Clarkson. Torts doing his best to get Avery waived again it would seem.

Hank is going to have to go God Mode, because I see the Devils getting some high-quality chances against our D.

LGR!

Surprisingly good. Still needs to get his speed and acceleration to 100% and probably some timing too... but he looks a lot better than I thought he would. He does more for this team than anyone knows. He had at least 5 or 6 good chances against Dallas and I wouldn't be surprised if he gets his first of the season tonight.

Should be a good game tonight. Studying for finals and will miss some. Any reason to why we wait till nearly January to play a division rival?

Looks like no Elias tonight. With Tallinder and Greene also out and you guys having such an injury riddled D, we won't be seeing either team's best tonight. Oh well, should still be fun.

Respect Zach. **** up Kovy.

Maybe we'll get lucky and the "ex-Ranger" thing will be on our side tonight.

Stralman scores a hatty tonight against those *******s who cut him from camp

Is it confirmed that Avery is not playing? Haven`t seen anything from the beat writers on twitter so far today and morning skate has not begun.

The debs have only won 11 games in regulation this year.. they are a lot worse than their record suggests, because they are a staggering 7-1 in the shootout. Our D is depleted, but losing Woywitka and Eminger for Erixon and Bickel is a lateral move. I don't think Torts can use anybody less than Woewitkas regular 8 minutes per game (that's Averyesque TOI..)
