we NEED to win in regulation when we play these guys on sunday. hopefully henrique is back in full swing by then, and PD tells kovy to chill when corralling the puck. hes my favorite player but holy **** man...if its on edge, settle it down first!!!!
Haha I know, but that's what Chico and Steve were saying early in the game, and in the pre game. ''Devils have done a good job keeping Tavares off the board!''

HAHA you make it sound like someone needs to take a contract out of them. You know it could be worse. We could be stuck with Homer Joe or good god Steggo!!! YUCK. I'll take Chico over Steggo every day of the week. Chico can be dumb, but steggo is dumb and sounds like the worst homer alive while doing it.

That wasn't lost on me. As it turned out, it was a HUGE point swing on the first minute and thirty of the PP at the end of regulation, to potentially get a 2-0 night out of it instead of a 1-2.

Did nabokov make saves on Elias and Zidlicky in ot? I can't believe we did not score. Lot of net was open on like 3 or 4 shots

Yes. We also need Kovy,Travis and Josefson to produce more often.

Biggest concern are the unforced giveaways.

sat behind a fat, drunk skank sitting on random guys' laps like a ****. also, except for the row in front of me, I was surrounded by asians. literally, doing homework and not looking up at all. just a weird atmosphere. thanks anyway, living social. I'll gladly pay full prices to not sit in a slutty circus.

the game- kovy seemed nearly disinterested. captaincy? hey can we make this guy happy, please? can we give him the position he truly, really wants? can we kiss his ass a little bit, parise-style? or, alternatively, at least, can we stop going out of our way to piss him off? lets be honest here- our success is going to be dependent on kovy and Marty this year.

...who has played better. not his best work, but we got some offense.

if the best line is gionta's, hate to say it, but we're ****ed.

I have a feeling Salvador's just holding the C for henrique, who looked a little slow at times, but he'll be back 100% in no time.

girl next to us was pretty hot though.

Marty needs to stay in the god damn net, and everyone needs to stop taking stupid penalties. The end.

Marty makes that mistake once every 100 times. the other 99 he plays the puck and either clears the zone or buys more time. you have to take the good with the bad.

Marty controls the game and screws so many opposition with his puck handling every game. Once in a blue moon mistakes are going to happen. Pucks bounce.

Most spoiled fan base in the world.

Salvador struggled but he's been solid aside from this game. Tallinder and Zidlicky suck something fierce. Very hard to watch those two play right now. Zidlicky has the hockey iq of a gnat...

Sure, Marty messed up, but he plays the puck so often its going to happen from time to time.

I've already tried this argument, some people will never listen

Zids has looked bad defensively, it is only the bit he adds offensively that makes him of any use at the moment.

First live game this year observations....
Agree with those who say kovy looked a bit ragged..don't think it means much yet
Clarkson best Devil on the ice. Starting to think last year was not a fluke
Larsson was OK...I'm not sold on him
The Islanders are pretty good
Aramack food sucks.

Not seeing passion or fire from Kovy yet aside from the reaction to his OT goal.

Cup of carvel ice cream was $5 and Ritas is $7. Is it that much better? Other concession food seems to be the same prices and value as centerplate. On hockey, Lou has work to do.

All I'm going to say on larsson is that there was another player I wanted more at the time. Don't want to cause a riot so ill leave it at that

Agree on clarkson. The guy has Parise's work ethic. Love his game...

Zubrus - Gio - Butler
Matteau - Carter - Bernier

Barch had a good possession stiff. HE was a fine goon today, but I don't think the Devils need a goon. If Matteau sticks, give him some 4th minutes

Matteau - Zubrus - Butler
CBGB would be fine by me too.

Josefson needs some players around him.
Enough is enough. Josefson is not, and most likely will NEVER be a #2 center. Poor man's John Madden as 3rd line C? Sure. And he has had players around him more often then not (some 4th line time w/ 2nd line time). Anyway, it's pretty clear our top 2 centers will be Zajac/Elias/Henrique.

And why are you breaking up the only line that has proven chemistry?

I like this team, but they are not a serious contender without adding a top 6 winger.

I thought Larsson was alright

made some nice defensive plays and some silly ones. also had a nice check or two that I am sure Scotty loved.

Overall I thought Larsson was pretty good. Definitely room for improvement, but after sitting the last 2 weeks, I didn't expect much more than what we saw. Definitely think he should stay in the lineup, as I expect him to take some strides as he strings together a few games in a row. Before anyone attacks me, I'm not saying he was great, didn't make mistakes, etc. But he wasn't bad, he didn't cost us the game, and wasn't anywhere close to our worst defenseman (or amongst the few worst defensemen either) tonight. I wasn't on here at all during the game and didn't read what was said here, but I think he deserves a good amount of credit for his decision making on the play that led to the first goal. I know he didn't get a point, but it was a good look to throw the puck towards the net which did lead to the goal there. Shame he didn't get a secondary on it, but obviously the puck hit one too many people before going in for that to happen.
