I'm just drained. Can't bring myself to look forward to the game.
This is a very young team so already making it this far is a good sign

Scratch Hagelin, Rupp and Bickel

Play Zuccs, Mitchell and Eminger


We're gonna win this thing, but we need to scratch the players who aren't contributing and play the players who potentially can.

I don't even know what to say. I've never felt so ****** after a sports game in my life. There's no way to explain how I feel, just completely empty. I went from being so happy to extremely depressed in a matter of minutes.

Guys like Bickel are good stop gaps but after a while they get exposed. I just wish they played this way when they were down 2-0 in game 4- we probably would've won it.

If we win game 6 and 7 we will just get steamrolled by the Kings. Might as well give them the cup now

This is where Torts is a failure as a coach, we have played more games than any other team, but hey keep wearing down our guys.
He has a fetish for big body grinders......

Lundqvist is fatigued just like the rest of the team, perhaps even moreso considering how he is bailed this team out. He was bound to go through a rough patch sooner or later. Unfortunately our team isn't capable of bailing Lundqvist out, defensively or offensively, when he looks shaky like he did tonight.

I saw Lundqvist lose the puck after its shot right into his chest on goal #1 and let in a high-school-level-shot on goal #3.

Is it really that hard to call it how it is? He has been our rock all season, but he let this one go. Needs to come back strong next game, or we are are toast. If we score 3 goals, we should at LEAST be in OT, not losing in regulation.

This is why (not this specifically but the idea) this game was so infuriating. SO many shanked pucks. SO many terrible plays. And can someone please tell Prust the Oscars were a few months ago?

Think about if Gabby buries that open net or if AA doesn't have that puck go off his skate. This game wasn't solely about horrendously sloppy play...it was about a plethora of missed and unexploited chances

Nope it was never connecting cleanly. Our forwards are too high in the neutral zone to receive them. They almost never have any forward momentum because they stay still at the blue line waiting for the pass.

The team needs to execute a 5 man transition with the D man dumping the puck at the red line. We try WAY too many plays from our corners out of zone. Its god awful.

Very honestly would have rather been blown out. To fight and claw your way back, only to lose.. its just so deflating.

Hank was dreadful tonight, no way around that.
that's it right there, every single night with that pass. you would think after it fails for the ten thousandth time, they's stop doing it! why can't they move the puck up the ice as a unit?

Biggest friggin game of the year and Lundqvist plays his Worst game of the year.

NY's Luongo.

Hank was bad in the 1st...What do you expect, 4 goals in a row is not something that happens that easily.

Seriously regarding Lundqvist. I don't want to keep harping on this. Until he becomes more consistent. We'll be on the wrong end on the hand shake line. With him it's not if but when he has that game that leaves you shaking your head. Unbelievable. I never learn. When he puts up great performances I expect him to be the goalie that he can be. He never ceases to disappoint me with efforts like he had tonight and yes even last game.

Somehow, someway the Devils not only gained momentum but also dictated the rest of the game AFTER WE TIED IT UP ON OUR OWN HOME ICE.

How little sense does that make?

That 3rd goal, he was positioned to make a save. Big time goalie makes that save. He better step it up next 2 game, or hes going to get that "Loungo-choke" label.
