“Well you may not have known it, but we’re division leaders too
And if you care to take a dare, we’ll play a game with you.
We’re real strong down the middle boys, so give this team its due
We’ll bet a stick of gold, to hook and hold, cause we might be better than you”
Aaaand that song will be in my head for the rest of the day.

Look at our special teams over the last 9 seasons:

PP
02-03:27th 13.8%
03-04:30th 10.6%
05-06:17th 17.9%
06-07:25th 15.0%
07-08:8th 18.8%
08-09:18th 18.7%
09-10:22nd 16.9%
10-11:24th 15.9%
11-12:20th 16.7%
average: 21st 16.03%

PK
02-03:22nd 81.8%
03-04:25th 81.6%
05-06:19th 81.8%
06-07:7th 84.6%
07-08:26th 78.9%
08-09:19th 80.4%
09-10:19th 80.6%
10-11:20th 81.2%
11-12:22nd 80.6%
average:20th 81.28%

I expect nothing but mediocrity going into every season from our special teams.

Devils line up tonight:

Matteau - Zajac - Kovalchuk
Elias - Henrique - Clarkson
Carter - Gionta - Bernier
Barch - Josefson - Butler

Greene - Larsson
Salvador - Fayne
Volchenkov - Zidlicky

Good luck tonight.. we've been hot overall and extremely hot at home (haven't lost in regulation there).. so I fully expect you guys to ruin things for us like you typically do

It's still weird to me to see a Matteau on the devils and not the Rangers..

Try the program Paint.NET (Google it, since Paint.net - the website - is something completely different)

Free download, and it's about as close to Photoshop that I've seen without actually paying for Photoshop.

Debating being in the house tonight, depends when I have to leave a customer site in NJ and if I can make it to Newark in time. My record of seeing the 'Canes on the road is 3-0-0-0 so hoping to add a 4 to that.

If you don't get there and we lose, it's on you.

If we could get to mediocre, we'd be unstoppable.

According to my crystal ball that just means the Devils lose to Thrashers in overtime.

Just heard on NHL network Ward is getting the start.
This team just never seems to learn its lesson about overworking goalies.
What is the point of even having Ellis on the roster, if you don't start him in a game like this you basically never will. Cam has not even looked that good the last two games.

Cam Start = 5-1 loss

Ward is historically great in second halves of back to backs.

I would have been shocked had Ellis gotten the start tonight even though Cam got a hell of a workout last night. He (Ellis) should get the start on Thursday.

Also, excellent GDT.

He should if Cam starts tonight - but he won't unless he gets blasted. Then again you are right Ellis gets the start after Cam gets lit up tonight.

Thursday (home game) is the game we really need to win, Cam should be in that one if he is your #1.

I think we exhausted everything last night, so i'm seeing a blow out tonight. Jussi likes to 'bump a marty', so maybe he gets off the snide tonight, channels his buddy Ruutu and gets us the useless goal.

I went for lunch after my dentist cleaning today. Random hole in the wall I've never been to before and they had a pulled pork sammy called "The Carolinian"

Not only was the slaw vinegar based (mayo is gross) but they put it *ON* the sandwich, aka the proper way. Best pulled pork I've had north of Virginia tbh and the sweet potato fries were equally amazing.

Good karma me thinks. I also picked up a case of Rolling Rock. My favorite game day beer.

On hand for Canes/Devils: RT @DRdiabloTHW By my count, 12 scouts here tonight: Phil, Fla, Win, Wash, Chi, Det, Nash, CBJ, Ana, Sj, LA, Phx

Quite a few Western teams.
