5-4 this month. Outscored 14-3 against Boston (twice) and Philly in 3 losses.

The teams we need to hang with are Boston and Philly and teams like that and we're failing SPECTACULARLY.
I think he is being a fan as instead ripping his team apart all the time. **** that homer ****.

Likewise, Marty was fine. If one wants to get Hedberg a game, great. But please don’t imply that he should play based on Marty’s game.

Yes, Foster is inferior; some of us said this the day the deal was made. And he won’t be playing once people come back healthy. But geez. Hatred for the guy? Take a look at what the guy has been through in his life, both the major injuries he has incurred and off the ice…and I feel no need to hate him. But that’s me. It’s just a game...and these are human beings, not cartoon characters.

No, I’m not “worried” about Buffalo coming up, either. I'll leave that to worriers. Simply need to get in a good practice on Monday and finish strong before the much needed break. Team looks tired and the Dog Days of the season may have caught up with them, temporarily. No excuse, whatsoever. But understandable.

Two game losing streak. Sorry, not worried. They've bounced back many times before and will again.
ahhhh thank you

Not to pile on to Pete, but I wish he woulda called something before a PK or some where.

I'm beginning to think he needs to break up the top 2 lines if they continue to struggle to score. 1 G is going to get you nothing in games with our team the way it is built.

We'll see how Buffalo goes first.

The team still has missing pieces.

Kiprusoff was Tim Thomas last week. Khabibulin had his best game in a while against us, and so did Pavelec.
i thought we didn't have any really good quality shots today, and if so, very few. we had a lot of scoring chances but they were just.. average.

i might need some validation, or maybe i'm wrong, but did we play in front of the net well enough against bryzgalov?

I wouldn't have wanted home-ice anyway with how 'great' it's been for us since moving to the Rock in April

Problem is finishing 5-7-8 means one of the Flyers-Rangers-Bruins, none of whom we match up well with. 6 is a crapshoot, but if the Caps (specifically Ovechkin) ever wake up and win the division, we don't match up with them either.

This is an absurd notion. I'm really glad you're not the GM.

Lou is not done making moves, and the team hasn't been full healthy all season. This won't be the defence heading into the playoffs. The forwards won't stay in this scoring slump for much longer. The goalies have been better of late.

Just have to get through the dog days of the season, and they always happen at this time of year, and then make a strong push down the stretch. We might be on the bubble, but this team will not be a pushover in the playoffs.

That whole top line was shut down by the Flyers today. I think it might be time to split the two superstars. Of course, every time I say this they go on a scoring binge right after. Let's hope it happens again.

Fayne won't be sitting. He has been very solid all season. Foster should be the one to sit when Greene gets back, but it will probably be Tao.

There may be the rare game or two where you do significantly outplay an opponent but lose due to freaky bounces and the like, but generally, that's not the case when you lose especially by more than a single goal. Some of you haven't played the sport and it shows with your comments. Outplaying for "much" of a game is not at all the same as outplaying for "all" of a game -- and those letdowns can be quite bad and cause you to lose if the other team is playing consistently!
Flyers highly outplayed the Devils Defensively in the 3rd. You could see that. The Devils outplayed them MOSTLY in the 1st, and parts of the 2nd.

After SEVERAL poor performances against teams ahead of us in the standing. I never said "tank" ever. Ever. Reading comprehension is poor again. If you are unclear, ask.

If it is difficult for you to read this I feel for you. I'm referencing this month's record [we did not play the Flyers more than once] and including specific goal tallies of three particular games [denoting Bruins were played twice of those three]. Pretty clear to me. I'll use bigger letters just for you next time? Or were you just looking to jump on someone [yes]

Not unless we get healthy and get an upgrade on defense. Need to play a more fluid game offensively as well.

It's the Marty Brodeur factor.

Face it....Opposing goalies want to play well against the GOAT at the other end.

Perhaps that's why when they saw Moose on the other end, they weren't as amped up.

Not sure about that.

Taormina has gone from being scratched and getting lowest TOI to getting the most TOI since being called up.

As I said before Foster is a plug filling a hole until Taormina is ready.

If Taormina were getting the TOI and made similar errors to Foster, it would not help his development. Tao is slowly getting more responsibility instead of being thrown into fire with Greene, Tallinder, and previously Volchenkov out.

Salvador
Foster
Volchenkov
Larsson
Fayne
Taormina

And yet every time we lose the anti-Marty threads get bumped

A few times I thought we did. I think we played better in front of Thomas though, but I don't see why we couldn't have gotten 2 goals out of this effort.

All of this Ryan Miller talk they will probably trade him for Tim Thomas for Tuesday. Only it won't be the real Tim Thomas.

If Poni can play like he did today consistently I think he'll be a good fit in the bottom 6. Goal aside, he did some nice things. Was decent defensively, got to the front of the net and actually threw some nice checks. I just hope he doesn't go the way of Foster and play well for a few games then regress to suckitude.

I don't think he played well today at all. I'm the first to defend him, but hands down Marty sucked today that's all I can say. It sucks cause other people will say ''No he didn't it wasn't his fault!'' yet they are the same people who complain when he gets 41 saves that the one goal he gave up was soft.
