Huh? I think Kovy and Zajac work very well together.. it's really the LW that is hurting that line even strength.

When Kovy and Zajac are out PKing together, they almost assuredly get at least one 2 on 1.. which Kovy usually tries to force to Zajac and is broken up.

Funny how the criticism blast the Devils though. Not a coincidence and a politician isn't going to hurt his publicity...

Kovy with Zajac and Palmieri worked great, if you'll recall. I actually do tend to think that Zajac and Kovy work better with Kovy on the left, because Zajac is a right-handed shot. For that reason I kinda want to see Henrique and Kovy together again, since I'd like to keep Kovy on the right, it makes him a better all-around player.

The criticism clearly blasts both the city and the Prudential Center. It in no way says the blame is solely on the Devils.

The roads were fine, but there wasn't much room to walk on the sidewalk. A fairly minor inconvenience though.

But it seems without that grinding forward Kovalchuk and Zajac by themselves aren't ideal.

It's almost like you need Zajac and player X to do the dirty work and find Kovalchuk. I don't know, but it appears to me that Zajac is most effective off of a cycle and Kovalchuk is just not good in the cycle.

Didn't seem to work with Henrique with Kovy and Zajac with Elias and Clarkson either. IDK Zajac is just in a bit of a funk I think.

Scoring funk. He's been fine elsewhere, but at the same time, he's whiffed on some open nets.

I'm not opposed to putting Henrique on the left wing whe everyone's healthy. Eventually we are going to see Loktionov, maybe he can play 2C well and we get a long term look at Henrique at 1LW

Everyone seems to think Kovy and Zajac are in a funk. With Zajac I think this is true, but with Kovy--he gets points, or is a factor in every game. Today was a blessing with an absurd amount of PP opportunities (seriously 10 PPs, whoa), where Kovy can really dictate from the point. What is so awesome about the Devils is the contributions they get from every player in the line-up. Clarkson/Bernier set up awesome screens down front, while random players pick-up the goals. Today having guys like Butler (who's been great in Albany) and Matteau score is what makes the Devils a great team. Production can come from anyone at any time. These guys are playing as a team, which makes them dangerous, every game.
Did anyone else have a weird/painful flashback when Matteau scored? I was surprised Lou kept the kid after 5 games. Nice for him to get his 1st.

Keeping one of the best offenses in the league to 1 goal total and 0 goals even strength?

Not sure how that's a B.. can't really do much better..

I didn't realize at first that Greene made a pass to Matteau, I thought it was a blocked shot that went to him.

That .gif is awesome. I love it.

And remember when Bergfors was our certified Penguin killer? If Greene wants to take up that role, I'm all for it.

It's beautiful to watch a PP like that Tick-Tac-Toe. Kovy-Greene-Matteau. The point men know when to just put a shot on net and try and get a greasy Clarkson/Bernier rebound goal, and when they have a good passing lane open they take it and make it look easy.
