I will just agree with many others here. Ame was boring. Flyers were easily outplayed, but they still won by some miracle...

I don't think it's completely there fault. Schenn has a negative reputation on HF because of Pens fans and a slow start to his NHL career. They'll warm up.

Horn guy definitely needs a beatin. I don't know how his section put up with it all game. Then again, it was a devils game, so it was probably only fourteen people.

It will be a weight off them all. Hopefully they can build on that and stop thinking and fretting and start playing.
I meant the confidence of the fans. As far as the team goes, maybe it did maybe it didn't. We've won before and have come out looking just as much ass as ever the games after.

Ah... fair enough! Yeh, fans can't take anything apart from a few player performances, no collapse and 2 points from this.

It's a shame to see Timonen suck so bad. The only thing he has going for him anymore is that he's positionally sound. But he's so small and so slow and he's not getting point shots through EVER. He can't finish a check or take a decent sized forward off the puck either.

He's such a smart guy - I guarantee if he got scratched he would know exactly why and wouldn't whine about it either.

Too bad we can't take his brain and give it to Coburn...

I feel bad for him as well ! When the old legs go its all down hill from there . He is such a proud guy as well which leads me to believe that he will probably retire and not tarnish the outstanding career he has had, always will have nothing but good things to say about Kimmo ! Just a great no nonsense pro !I hope he has a GREAT Olympics this year !

Indeed it is, especially for the price. Enjoy the Makers. Not to shabby itself.

Timonen is 17th among all NHL defensemen >10 GP in Corsi Rel, and half of those ahead of him have a negative QoC (he doesn't). Small sample size, but based on it, Timonen is doing just fine.

His experience and overall hockey IQ are whats keeping him going at this point in his career. His speed is really down, perhaps if we can keep his minutes down he can carry on effectively through the season . Although Jagr is not too quick these days and is still quite effective , so who knows ? No matter what i am a big fan of the Fin .

He has been pretty fine in his own zone when the opposition set up apart from a few silly penalties... but his speed has fell off a cliff and it seems to be really affecting him getting up and down the ice, so even with his IQ he is finding himself out of position and unable to clean up after his own mistakes as we are all so used to seeing him do, and having to force plays more that he would usually already be past a guy or in more space for.

I think that is what is making him look bad... he has 55 minutes of ok hockey each game, but when a play is blown once or twice a game he looks so out of place it looks like he has played it far worse than he actually had as a goalscoring chance is guaranteed, and those things stick in peoples minds.

There was a period where Buffalo Trace was pretty cheap; I'm sad to see it's gone up quite a bit in the last few years.

Couturier was great, I agree, but I don't get what people see in Raffl. He is not strong on the puck, is an average skater and made some brutal passes tonight.

I'd have preferred McGinn in his place on line 2.

A Sportsnet guy just wrote an article about quality shots and shooting percentages from those shots. Link to Part II. You should check it out; it's a good read.

5% is certainly unsustainable, but it's probably most reflective of the team's inability to create quality scoring chances.

Hey guys, new here. Lurked a long time, finally decided to sign up.

Ugly win, but aren't we something like 0-8 against this Devils team the past two seasons? I know they're missing Elias and kovalchuk, but at least that's something.
