Win it with a good team effort. Hopefully Zids and MT have better games.

Get a win! Hope they have been enjoying their lighter schedule.

I think Ovi slams one home with him back on the LW for this game. Can't believe Oates moved him back to make him happy. lul

We haven't seen Holtby since our only dominant game under Maclean. Holtby was only starting his first couple games then. I hope we don't get some Cam Ward syndrome with him.

The ''I haven't done **** or won a game all season, but since Brodeur is playing on the other side I'll actually be motivated to pull out a win tonight, because beating Brodeur is better than breaking our winless streak against anybody!'' game.

I'll be there. No idea where yet.

All the pressure is on the Caps. I still like our chances.


Win it, Devils. 3-0

They certainly have the offense to drop 6 goals on a team with little effort.

I kinda feel bad for Oates. It took the Devils like 35-40 games to really get Deboer's system down and start playing like the team that went to the Finals. I think it's no surprise Oates is trying to implement a similar system, but with a short camp and no preseason and a 48 game season, they simply don't have enough time I think.

And if there's one thing we can assume about Oates, it takes him awhile to make adjustments. Who knows if he'll try to run an easier system for now or just push until they get it.

And for the record, it was Ovechkin that went to Oates and asked him to put him at RW. He thought it might give him different looks and shake up all the scouting reports that seem to have nullified his offense.

It does take him awhile to make adjustments. I think the whole board was calling for him to be fired during the shorthanded goal stretch. It seemed we gave up one every 2-3 games for a two month span, and I distinctly remember losing 4 games by one non empty net goal in which a shorty was scored.

I'm also confused on the Ovechkin thing. Oates said he moved him back because he wanted to make him happy. Though it was Ovechkin who asked to be moved in the first place.

Damn Adam, once you let the players dictate moves or stop you from making moves, you will lose the locker room.
Ya, that quote is not encouraging for his hold on the team.
