He is their best DDDD-man. He really is one of those guys like Grosmann, who no-one realises until he plays for their team.

I don't recall seeing him that much. Thank god Lavi finally started cutting his minutes. He's been worthless as of late.

If JVR played a more physical game he would be JLeClair mark 2. Hope he becomes that.

So who would love to see Bryz skate down and knock Brodeur out if he gets into a scrum again?

On the flip side, Schenn wasn't going to score with 0 sec on the clock, so you have to not be stupid and take a useless penalty. I agree it's a really soft call, but it's more of a penalty than what they'd called.

The Flyers came out storming and honestly the Devils were kind of lucky they were only down by 1.

And then Chris Lee happened...

It really felt like the refs were penalizing the Flyers to try and slow the game down, we were just never the same after the two PK's and that's how the Devils started to push back.

At this point I'd split Simmonds/Schenn and Jagr 5 on 5 on the top line and let Jagr stay out a little longer on PPs. It'll take more than the 2nd round to give Jags adrenaline.

Pretty decent first period. We're playing a high tempo game, and when we get it going the Devils defense can't cope. They're trying their best to slow us down though. Brodeur's been having some trouble finding the puck. Keep crashing the net, and there will be a rebound for the taking sooner or later. We're really going hard at him, not allowing him to play the puck. Nice to see. It's almost paid off a couple of times too.

Bryzgalov's made a few really nice stops. Hopefully both he and the rest of the team can keep up the solid defensive play for the full 60 minutes. There's been a few really good defensive plays by guys like Coburn and Timonen, and in general we're clearing the porch a lot better than we usually do. Meanwhile the forwards are doing their job on the backcheck. Gustafsson's having another pretty strong game so far. He looks a lot more assertive out there, and doesn't lose quite as many board battles as he's done in the past. I wish Lilja wouldn't back off as much as he does however, he's allowing the Devils zone entrance much too easily.

Good job by JvR going to the net, no way he should be penalized for that. Nice hit after coming out of the penalty box as well. A physical JvR? He's even playing good defensively. Hope he keeps it up. Timonen's penalty was really weak as well, btw, as was the Gionta slashing.

Wellwood is just ridiculous right now. He's creating half our chances. He won't make the Canadian team for the Sotchi Olympics, but maybe he could try out for the speed skating team instead? His job on the pk, along with the others, was outstanding.

Great job on the goal by the fourth line. Read looking a lot better than he's done lately. Our 4th line is a lot better than theirs. That must be a great feeling for Lavy and the coaching staff.

Salvador taking an interference penalty with one second left on the clock... That's not smart.



Oh, and when did Grossmann turn into a power forward? That was a solid move by him, going to the first post.

Indeed. Incredibly annoying.

Wellwood had 4 shots in the first. Dude's everywhere.

PP goal would be a nice start. I don't want the Devils hanging around too long. Finish them!

That's actually not entirely unlikely. Could have been looking for a faceoff. It was a pretty solid play anyway.
