The Blues and Red Wings are a rivalry? I thought that ended a long time ago?

The sustained pressure from that last shift was exactly what we needed.

I still can't believe that Clarkson is 2nd-highest goal-scorer in the NHL right now.

Ok. Count me in the Clarkson bandwagon. He's currently playing like a legit top 6 forward.

We're beating them almost everywhere. Really want a 4th goal.

Yesterday Pens fans were *****ing about the refs calling every little thing, now they're *****ing about them not calling every little thing.

They are demeaning the Devils. Nobody uses "they're playing the trap" as a compliment.

The hockey media isn't necessarily against the Devils, they are just outdated in their analysis of why the Devils are successful. Conventional wisdom says it's the trap, we know that it's actually the forecheck and solid defence and goaltending.

When there's no imminent scoring chance, they will blow it dead. And that was one of those situations, it was a Pittsburgh PP and they were regrouping behind their net when Gio blew a tire on the forecheck. They'd always stop play in that situation.

Maybe it's like the Clippers and the Lakers. It's only a rivalry during those brief eras when the Clippers aren't terrible.

Crosby is gonna look back in 20 years and say to himself "what the hell was I thinking with that stupid mustache?"

Wipe that dirt off. You look like a walk-on character in Boardwalk Empire.

It's not the media being "against" the Devils, its the jaw-dropping negligence and ignorance they always display in regards to the Devils. NJ is one of the league's elite franchises since the late 80's, yet so much of the NHL media (print, TV, and radio) cling to images of the Devils that are now nearly 20 years old, and act like just because Marty's been there the whole time it means that's just always how the team has played.

I mean, God's sake, it took us making the freaking Finals for the NHL media to stop calling the Devils "Swamp Things" (they left the Meadowlands years ago now!) in headlines, and we STILL can't shake the trap label, or at least code words that suggest it, even though the Devils have not been a trap reliant team in ages.

So it's not "they're out to get us", it's "they don't even bother reading a wiki article about us."

I'd say they need a 4th. I'm having flashbacks of all the blown leads last year. Hopefully I'm just being paranoid.

No coincidence that the D is now getting points in every game. Great "new" dimension to see.

^^this. If he's on the ice when another Devil gets checked in the other end it's his fault. I noticed Larsson turn a puck over to Malkin our zone yesterday but no one said a thing. If Volchenkov did it people would be calling for his release. By the way, I love Larsson and his play, I'm just using one bad play as an example.
