I have a few more games to play this block and won't be able to play until Monday, hopefully the advance isn't until then.

Also hoping I can get in a couple wins this block, currently 0-3-1

Not getting all of this wrist shot hate. If you're giving up shots in the slot, you're asking to get scored on. I dont complain about your little breakaway move that works 9/10 times. Playing solid D solves all these problems.

Winnipeg shuts down Devils, 2-1

New Jersey was given the false impression that they were ready to run the table this schedule period, but Winnipeg put those discussions to rest. "This is like meeting a very hot girl at the bar, you hit it off, she invites you over to her house and you think things are going great. Once you arrive, you knock on the door and she lets you in. You go upstairs to the bedroom, she throws you on the bed and locks the door. She proceeds to slowly take her clothes off, but before her shirt gets over her head, she stops, looks at you and goes 'haha, I was just ****ing with you, get out of my house you moron'. That's what this run has felt like, a giant tease" said RW Mathiew Perreault to the media this morning.

Winnipeg has beaten the New Jersey Devils 6 times in a row now. "We might as well just put it in the 'L' column before we even play them, save us some time", said center Dainus Zubrus, he was later scolded for his comment after the game. The Devils will look to regroup and continue their voyage towards a playoff spot against Washington. In what is going to be the most interesting game of the season, New Jersey will play the Capitals for the first time since the big trade. A loss will mean ridicule by the fans, and commissioner Fuss, who have all been very critical of the trade that sent Larsson to Washington. Chessarmy would not comment on his issues with commissioner fuss, "everything is status quo", he said. Rumors are that there was a heated dispute between the GMs last night, with Fuss eventually threatening to begin fraternizing with Chessarmy's girlfriend. "He seems to want to give everything away", said the Commissioner, "so I guess he wouldn't care if we added his girlfriend to the list"

"Trading Larsson was stupid", he concluded.

Devils vs Washington is set for Monday afternoon on NBC Sports Network.

We all have our go to move. Ill just adjust. My breakaway goal involve me actually getting on a breakaway but the goals Kane scored involves you just crossing a blue lone and taking a wrist shot from far out that you and I can save. But like I said we all have our moves ill adjust so that next game either Kane gets decapitated or ill leave someone their so Kane won't take that shot

Other than that solid game was tight until the end

If you're giving up a lot of breakaways you deserve to get scored on. But in all fairness, If I have a lead and I get a breakaway I'll typically try something different than my few go-to moves... whether it's backhand/shelf, or dangle/five-hole, I won't score with the same move more than twice.

I hate people who all they do is circles in the offensive zone looking for the wrist shot in the slot. Circle all you want, but spread the puck around... pass it to the point, make a little dangle here and there, look for a one-timer or a tip-in, or just crash the net. There's so many fun ways to score in this game it boggles my mind why someone would want to be so repetitive and boring.

Haha, if you had a player as dominant as Ovi I think you'd double shift him too.

And talk is cheap so I won't get into it on here. I think you'll see a different Washington team the next time we play

Yes, you are my fiercest challenge so far - good games all around, maybe one day I'll win a game

I wasn't even mad last night though, you played a good clean game and I can't gripe about losing. I made two more mistakes than you, end of story. Good luck the rest of the season brother

I dont know man, this is just my opinion but "actually getting on a breakaway" is a little sketchy. I'm not a fan of how EA handled this when they made the new skating engine. I love how important acceleration is in this game but i think that, especially defenseman, got screwed over in this regard. It takes so freaking long to get up to speed as a defenseman in this game and i think Dmen are especially sloppy when it comes to changing direction.

Your "go to move" is just a real short backhand-forehand that squeaks in behind the goalie. Its a result of poor programming. If you watch the replay the goalie always leaves waaaaay too much net open. Wrist shots are essentially the same thing, a result of poor programming which leads to goals that are almost Automatic.. I watched both of those Kane goals because i wanted to see exactly where i scored them. They weren't "far out" shots, they were in the slot.

Nonetheless, both of our situations are instantly fixed with better defense so i cant really complain.
