Larsson was amazing tonight, probably the best "complete" game I've seen from him (in my opinion). Poise, making key interventions, smart with the puck, playing the body heavily at the right times.
Solid team effort no complaints at all tonight. All lines were rolling well (particularly in the 2nd and 3rd there were streaks of offensive dominance), passes were crisp, very few misplays, an efficient machine.
This team is ****ing awesome! Damn impressive how they dominated the 2nd and not less impressive how they not let the Pens come back after their early goal in the 3rd and avoided any sustained pressure. They just keep on dominating. I didn't have as much confidence in a Devils team in many years.
Great game. Huge sweep of that team from Pennsylvania or wherever they play. Great game by Clarky and the second line. Larsson is a stud as well. He's physical and a good passer and he did a good job of staying in front of Malkin on that one-on-one in the second. What else? It was good to see Kovy get another goal. He had the shot and he took it which is what we had to do. We got outplayed in the first but turned it around from there on out.
"Devils just trap trap trap trap. Sure it's a modified trap different than LeMaire's but even with two forecheckers they have the defense sitting back with the third guy clogging up the middle of the ice." - explanation of how the Devils still employ the trap
Great win tonight! Larsson is looking better and better each game that I watch him play. However, this is has to be said...is there any scarier defensive tandem than Zidlicky and Volchenkov? I do not mean as in scary good, I mean as in every time I see them on the ice together some part of my lower body puckers up just a little tighter than usual
