#36 | Islanders @ Devils | 7:00 EST

IT'S NOW THE RETURN OF ZUBRUS EDITION!

vs.

You know it is at the Rock
You know it's on MSG+
You know to listen to Matt and Sherry on 660AM

LINEUPS - TO BE UPDATED LATER TODAY




Elias-Loktionov-Bernier
Ponikarovsky-Zajac-Clarkson
Zubrus-Henrique-D'Agostini
Carter-Gionta-Kostopoulos

Defense: Trade Bait

Goalie: The Franchise



Forwards: Bunch of 1st Round Picks

Defense: Some good, some bad

Goalie: Not bad at all



THE FIVE STAGES OF OVERTIME AND SHOOTOUT LOSS GRIEF


STAGE 1: ANGER

At first, there are a lot of posts like this


Then some posters start responding like this


...and on and on and on

STAGE 2: DEPRESSION



This team has no heart, trade everybody, we suck, blah blah

STAGE 3: DENIAL



When we get Kovalchuk and Zubrus back everything will be fine. Crosby is out for a month, Rangers haven't scored in 2 hours of play, Islanders aren't really gaining on us and Flyers lol

STAGE 4: GO INSANE!



I mean, I've been watching a lot of Albany games and I think Tedenby is finally ready to contribute. Also we should trade Tallinder for Doughty straight up, it's a win-win for both teams. Lokti is a legit 1st line player.

STAGE 5: GET REAL



Truth: There is so much mediocrity in the East this year, your team doesn't even really have to be that good to get into the playoffs. I think the Devils are good enough. LGD.

STAGE 6: GO GIF CRAZY













Inspirational Movie Clip for this Game: Rage Against the Dying of the Light



Mandatory Mocking of Opposition: Nassau County State of Mind



LET'S GO DEVILS! BEAT THE ISLANDERS AND I WILL MAKE A BETTER GDT NEXT TIME. I HATE GOING TO LONG ISLAND TO VISIT MY INLAWS AND I HATE LOSING TO THE ISLANDERS EVEN MORE, SO BEAT THEM IN REGULATION DAMNIT!!!! LGD!!!!

I always hate playing this team. It's no secret our Devils sometimes don't come out to play this team with the same energy as our more competitive division rivals. Even the Moose shutout was just a couple minutes away from possibly being a dual shutout between Nabby and Moose going to a shootout. Also if Gragner isn't stopped by Moose on the breakaway it could have ended 1-0 Isles. The last game against them seemed to be when our troubles started too.

Also Larsson, and Tally again PLZ. Keep Volch and Harrold upstairs bored in the suite.

Ya it happens to often over the years with this team. Just win and we continue to put seperation between us and being outside of the playoffs and the sting of those lost points on this road trip won't hurt as much.

Yeah me too. I don't hate them like the Rangers or Flyers, but I can't stand all the love they get from Devils fans. If they were competing with us for a playoff spot (Which they are right now) or were actually competitive all these years then no Devils fans would be sympathizing with them. This whole ''We respect the Isles as Devils fans because we're allies in our hate against the Rangers'' though I'm a rebel to that. It's just like saying ''We love and respect the Pens because we're allies in our hate against the Flyers'' but no one is saying that because the Penguins are actually competitive.

I hate them almost as much as the Rags to be honest. They're a joke of a franchise and I want NJ to kick the **** out of them tomorrow.

i have more hate for the canes and sabres then the isles by far. isles are like the leafs to me....a joke.

its quite sad to see the toronto above the devils in the standings......i would love to see the team fully healthy and meet them in the playoffs only to expose them as the farce they are and watch all the leafs' sheep cry.

Seriously.. Islanders have been irrelevant for so long that I find it hard to hate them.

I mean, will I root for them if they make the playoffs? No.

But am I actively caring whether or not they do get there? Nope..

I would love for them to knock the Rangers out... as would almost every Ranger fan would like to see them do with us.

My hate for the Sabres only really grew after Miller's antics. Have to hate the Canes though. Isles just annoy me, will annoy me more when they go to Brooklyn as I kind of loath that place.

Here here and the Laffs. Love to do it ourselves, but will still be great when someone exposes them for the fools goal they are. IF we can just get a bit of a winning streak going maybe we can swap spots with them and they can get smacked around by the Habs (maybe Boston but I don't know anymore, they are slumping). Hate for that soft 3 vs 6 seed match up to be wasted on the Leafs.

I'd like to see the Devils blow another lead with under a minute left, causing a huge meltdown on this board, then they'll be all ''April Fools!'' and score with under 10 seconds left to win.

Lets be real here, no team is a joke... It's almost disrespectful to say so. But with that being said, the Leafs are plainly doing better than us, and so they deserve to be above us in the standings.

As for the Islanders, the Devils never play too well against them, but we do need these 2 (at least 1) point(s) from tonight if we want to make the playoffs.
