Great win. Marty and Zajac were the standouts for me they were both great. Greene-Fayne were solid as usual. I still want Larsson in lol I've been waiting to see him for a while now. This team is really solid though.
As much as it hurts to say I think I would roll with this lineup again defensively, and keep Larsson out one more game. It's been pretty good. I was hoping Moose would get the start Friday to give him some work since Marty will definitely start up in Montreal this weekend.
I think we should ride the hot hand with Marty though. He's been pretty phenomenal. Hasn't looked this good in quite a while first two games in. Especially with no pre season work at all too it's pretty incredible. The team has been playing very good in front of him, and he's there to make the big saves that he has to. I'm pretty impressed overall.
Team definitely could have looked better. Can also say that about a number of different aspects or points along the way. But ultimately it wasn't a bad game. Brodeur definitely earned every bit of that shutout. Curious to see if we have any lineup changes for Friday despite the win. Zidlicky was awful tonight. Just not sure if either a) this is enough to consider scratching him for a game or b) if they even feel that they could replace him given his role on the PP. I do want to see Larsson get in though as I wasn't exactly wowed with the defense at times along the way.
Not a good sign for Tedenby when an 18 year old rookie is getting played over you in a 3-0 game.
Well Matteau's clock is pretty limited too as far as auditioning, although at the rate things are going Tedenby will be on the same plane out of town Matteau will be in two weeks, only Matteau will get a return trip ticket to take with him and Tedenby won't.
The last half of that game was pretty boring, even given the fact that it's always fun to watch the Flyers implode and short-circuit. With about five minutes to go it's like, 'okay let's just get this over already, enough with the nonsense'.
Probably the best thing about the game (besides Marty) is the Devils got some extended PP practice time. God knows they need it.
