Yeah if I was gionta I would've got up and knocked him the ******* out, suspension be damned

Because Gionta is fine, absolutely nothing will happen to the Panther.

BUT....

Had Gionta tore his ACL or broke his leg, the Panther would probably be suspended for 5 to 8 games.

From my vantage point in section 3, very good. Shot had velocity,he took the body a few times and he was smart with the puck.
Just his presence on the ice as a threat helped.

Really hope kovy gets the C next year, I wouldn't be opposed to him and sal switching the A and C, kovy already acts like our captain but the C on his chest will help our brand more than anything else I think.

We have moved the puck and skated much better without Volch and Sal. Much better.

Nice touch in the national anthem today with tribute to Boston.

Thought crowd was better than expected today too considering the circumstances.

If it was classic pricing rather than premier it may have even Gomezed.

I'm with you. Before the season, I wasn't really sure who should get it. And i didnt want Sal to have it due to age and performance. But IK is
clearly the captain out there. I don't know if it'd turn into a big "thing" to swap the C and the A with those two but I'd like to see it.

Ya, that push in the back wasn't cool. No reason to do that. I guess he just wasn't thinking.

Any point(even a loser point) allowed to the Rags will basically end any slim playoff-hopes.

Getting 2 points IN REGULATION IS A *MUST* tomorrow.

Would be interesting to make it to the last game of the season needing a win in regulation. Tie game with 2 minutes left? Gotta pull the goalie.

Then Henrique takes over.

If the Devils are not going to make the postseason, I sure as hell DO *NOT* want the Rags to be the ones who knock our team out due to either a win against them in regulation/ot/shooout or even a loser point gained in OT/Shootout.


Let's beat them and make them work for that 8th spot...

of course. my plan includes beating them 10-0 tomorrow and fails if we score less than 10 or give up a goal.

Or more accurately, don't allow the Rangers to get any points so the Devils earn a net gain of 2 points.

i hate how freaking gutless this team is. if stevens or daneyko were still in the lineup they'd have pulled that little **** from his own bench and rearranged his face. but of course we did nothing i feel bad for gio. he works so hard and takes such big hits for the team and literally nobody has his back. good win tho

Is Doc calling the game? We could end up with deja vu.

T.J. Brennan..nothing?!?

Couldn't find a thread on this so I created my own...feel free to move this if needed.

But I cannot believe that T.J. Brennan was not only not given a game misconduct but not even suspended for at least a game? How dangerous was this play?!? In the league the way it is today...you don't have to actually hurt someone to get suspended..just putting someone in that position is enough. To me, this is more intentional and just as dangerous as say...Patrick Keletta's hit on Brad Richards. T.J. Brennan is a repeat offender too..is he not? This is just as bad as leaving the bench to fight.

That play was not only embarrassing, but unsportsmanlike and dangerous. S Gionta landed hard and awkwardly. WTH? Why didn't the Devils at least do something about it? Aren't devils fans mad?

As a fan of the Rangers..human nature probably make me judge the Devils a bit differently, although I try to be fair and honest with my opinions...but that play was complete B.S. and I can't believe it's not being talked about more!

I commented on this in the GDT, it was a very dangerous play, and extremely irresponsible.
It's another example of how in the NHL, you generally only get punishment if someone gets hurt = dumb.

Since Gionta wasnt hurt = **crickets**

Had Gionta broken his leg or tore his ACL = 5 to 8 game suspension probably
