Yep. Kovy made one mistake which was the Bruins goal. Overall he played pretty well defensively, but wasnt great on offense

KOvalchuk had one solid back check all game. Doesn't make up for his sorry effort. Very bad game for him, don't try and sugar coat it

Josefson does have a place in the NHL. But it is becoming obvious he isn't a 2 way threat.

In this thread we have Devils fans throwing fits after getting 8 out of a possible 10 points, and taking a very tough Boston team on the road to a shootout, which is a gimmick either way. Power play is looking better, and it broke down what was the best PK in the league up to now.

Still work to be done, but that wasn't so bad. Moose was fantastic, but the 1 goal and the shootout winner was a bit weak.

Still wonder if Rask is allowed to just take Travis's legs out like that.

To me it looks like Travis is either nursing an injury or is under the weather.

He played his worst game in a Devils uniform tonight.
Zubrus was equally bad.

Moose & Clarky played great, Tallinder & Gio played well, Zids & Patty ok, Kovy-not that good, most everyone else was below par with the above mentioned Zajac and Zubrus off the charts poor.

Wish we would have stolen the SO point, it was there for the taking 3 consecutive SO attempts in a row.

Tedenby has sick hands and his speedy. Blows everywhere else.

I consider this a bounce back game given that they cleaned up a lot of the mistakes made in the Montreal game. Know I'm beating a dead horse here, but definitely need more offensive depth. Confident Lou will provide when the time is most opportune.
I haven't looked at a highlight yet (got stuck going to a crappy horror movie) but how was the third-period goal a softie if it went off Tallinder? And yeah almost thirty shots, one goal allowed against the best team in the conference in their building is freaking terrific for a guy that hadn't played competitively in nine months. We're fortunate to have one of the best tandems in the league.

He really had matured into a great two-way player once joining our organization. Also some outstanding moves on the PK.

People wanted him to get a shot at the top 6 a couple games back and now he is in the doghouse primarily over a missed shootout attempt.

I agree 100%, for a player of his stature he did not bring an impressive effort to the ice tonight.

I see guys like Horton, Lucic and Krecji on Boston who may not be as talented, but they were bringing it every shift.

It's disappointing because for the most part in last year's playoffs we saw Kovy battle 100% every shift, not tonight though.

He was not alone though, Travis was a no-show too.

For me, it feels a little like Larsson last year. Larsson could have a horrible game, but there would be people who were raving about how amazing he played that night. To point out that, for me, those players did not have an amazing game, is tantamount to sacrilege.

This. He's great defensively, a good skater, and an effective penalty killer. Nothing more. I know people think that the offense will just surface at some point, but there haven't even been flashes of an ability to finish. Of his 5 goals, 3 or 4 were rebounds, deflections, or weird bounces. If he has more than one goal which shows an ability to create and finish, I would be shocked.

Not sure about this, IK played RW on that goal, it came from Bruins RW. Don't know why but Josefson was LW and he was late.

sloppy game but we stole a point so it's all good

Hopefully Henrique is back soon because Josefson shouldn't be in our top six

How was that not a penalty on Rask in the SO, he took out Zajac's legs without touching the puck. Still thought if Trav had his head up it's an easy goal.

he WAS really good on pk

that said two-way player...ehhh....he was much improved tho. I think this was his best defensive game, ironically the first with a GA tho. one of the worst ever offensively tho, but I believe that's a huge credit to chara

The problem with Kovy is that he is playing like 30 minutes a game and now playing both ends of the ice. It's taking away from scoring and this team is lacking a forward presence right now.

Get a top 6 winger and I bet a lot of things start looking better:

Kovy, the D, depth scoring, etc.

good point

another thing before I nod off: Clarkson's puck control was really good. Held it for god knows how long one shift. Good work, unlucky nothing more happened.

Even with Henrique coming back soon, we still desperately need another top 6 FW.

Before this game, Boston was 5-0 on home ice and had not let up a Power play goal in 6 games. We played with them, took a home point from them, and broke through on the power play.

Despite a lot of negativity, the glass is half full - disappointed with the blown lead OK but no reason to jump off the ledge...

Watch a report come out saying some Bruins fans saw someone in a Devils jersey throw the object. Just like the rats in Florida last year.
