Even at 39 years old, Marty Brodeur still flops with the best of 'em..... Good job by the refs not being baited by his theatrics.

The half-arsed coverage on AA was just bad puck luck.

The fact that Marty wasn't even on the ice to stop gabby's 2nd was actually just bad puck luck.......

I don't know if it's a Broeduer thing that's just rubbed off on the team, or whether they all actually believe it, but it seems that the only reason the Devils ever lose is because of bad luck....

Torts also impressed with Stu Bickel in first NHL game: "He's not afraid to step in and try to make a difference." Used him on PK as well
Torts on Bickel

Considering we beat up the devils in the playoffs in multiple series in the 90's id say no. Early 2000's when we were a nonplayoff team, sure.

It is small, yes. We have literally tens of thousands of users here, so it's a strain on the servers to have all those people with huge avatars.

FWIW, sponsors get 50kb avatars at 150x150.

Good: Our Super Keeper, even though it was a 3 goal win, he stole the show. Anisimov is really starting to make plays when he has the puck, and Dubinsky seemed to play with some confidence today


BAD: Still very poor with breaking out of our defensive zones, as well as entering the zone on offense. It seems this team has a lot of trouble anticipating plays, even I know when someone is in trouble we shoot the puck around the boards and switch sides. Problem is a lot of the time the of winger is not anticipating the pass, and the opposing team either intercepts and keeps the puck in our zone, or leads the opposing team to an easy break out and an odd man rush


REDDEN
: Second Line, there is no one on this line who is able to carry the puck in and control it. While I think Hagelin will be a good addition to the line, he kind of reminds me of the guy from mighty ducks 2, that would fly all over the ice, but didn't know how to stop. Kinda like the Forrest Gump of the NHL.

Since the all three Stepan Gaborik and Anisimov, seem comfortable controlling the puck in the offensive zone. Withe the way Anisimov is playing I wouldn't mind seeing him paired with Hagelin and Richards, and put Callahan up with Stepan and Gaborik and see if that would help the second line cycle and control the puck better.

That is all for today kids, dont forget to brush your teeth and wash behind your ears

Wouldn't be a strain on the servers if the images are externally hosted

I still can't believe the 6 devils skaters made all those saves on the ENG attempt.

That was incredibly entertaining to watch, wasn't it? I can't recall a team having possession in the zone of the empty net for such an extended period of time, with all the shots blocked. Crazy stuff.

I don't think they allow externally hosted images.

Externally hosted images leads to problems. For example, on a torrent site I use they posted warnings to people not to use certain image hosting sites (I think tinypic was the one mentioned) because after a certain amount of time the URLs expire and are reused, which means you get a random picture. Some of those random pictures obviously ended up being porno, which is why it became an issue.

I couldn't believe it. I was like "well, they're going to seal the deal now" then the puck gets cleared. Even funnier because of how badly brodeur played tonight
