Clarkson made a deal with the Devil. Either that or he's due to cool off big time. Really one saving grace I have with this Devils team. One of their best players is playing so far over his head that it's ridiculous. Prior to last year. 17 goals was his high. Had 12 goals and 18 points just the year before that (yes that's in 82 games). Now here's the topper. The fact that he scored 30 goals after scoring like a mediocre 3rd liner his whole career is not even what's amazing. What's amazing is that including last season, his career high is 46 points. For a little reference, Sean Avery's career high was 39 points. Now he's more than a point per game player. Yeah that's sustainable.
NJD refuse to lose. As great as Hank is it sure would be nice I he could play the puck just a little . After all these years and the changing of the rules Marty's puck handling is a huge difference maker in whether the NJD win or lose.
