Gotta think were due to beat Boston at some point so hopefully Wednesday is the turn around
We came real close to beating them last time, we gotta stay positive no matter what...as far as I'm concerned this next game is the hardest down the stretch

Truthfully I am just confused by the Leafs hate. I hope the Leafs do you guys favours and beat the teams ahead of you. I hate the isles and the Jets with a burning passion. Brodeur deserves playoff action more than any of those 2 clubs put together.

We'll take a win Wednesday and then you guys can lose the rest :p Unless you play NYI, then one more win!

I don't hate the Leafs. I just think they're illegitimate. Luck's definitely on their side this season. And I'm jealous of it.

Overall I agree, we have had a lot of lucky bounces. The biggest thing going for us seems to be endless offensive depth and actually hitting people. If Reimer can just keep his basics and play his position with consistency, we may actually be a decent team for more years. In the mean while, I will milk the **** out of this streak

Wish you good luck man. Don't read too much into my comments though, I'm a very frustrated Devils fan right now. Constantly outshooting the opposition but still couldn't get 2 pts since Methuselah.

Do that as long as you can. As we know streaks can come to an end and last for what feels like forever. Good luck Wednesday and the rest of the way. That is as long as your helping us out.

I don't really hate the Leafs that much. A lot of the visiting Leafs fans on here have been pretty cool actually. Right now they're so far ahead of us too that there's no reason to root against them. Right now we have to worry about the Isles and Rangers. Maybe the Flyers too. The Jets I do not take seriously at all.

Good. Now that I have your trust. Give me Larsson and Josefson.

All the best for the player drive, Marty is too good to not get into the playoffs. I think he might be the only goalie I dont curse at when he shuts down our team or Kessel Just love that guy too much

I've never really hated the Leafs at all. There a really exciting team to watch this year. With the way we have been going, watching their offense makes me jealous.

I haven't actually 'hated' the Leafs since the Pat Quinn/Tie Domi/Darcy Tucker days, though it's sometimes fun to laugh at their futility since. I don't have a real axe to grind with this year's team and they are entertaining. It'd be nice to see an Original Six 4-5 series (either Boston or Montreal vs. the Leafs in the first round).

Reimer really has improved too. Not sure if it would hold up, but he looks better than the last couple years I'll say that much. His rebound control is a little shaky though, but it didn't really cost him tonight.

I don't really hate the Leafs. Any team we're playing is usually a target until the game is over, and I've made fun of the Leafs sometimes, but all in good fun. Their fans on here who have come to our board have been pretty classy too. I remember one was very encouraging and confident in us on here after Parise left.

No problem, I've had a soft spot for you guys since Scotty Neidermayer, Patrick Elias and Brodeur ofc, were in your team. Also when Gomez wasn't crap and Gionta was a 40 goal scorer

I hope we do. Our boys are young and the fruits of our labour are finally showing up. One night we can hold the fort and feel like an army of men controls the team. The next time we recede back and it feels like high school kids are playing

Hope kovy comes back for you guys soon and help that PP. I watch games from time to time and you guys seem off in the PP for sure.

Would be nice if your Leafs win @ MSG next game. Think they will?

He's lesser of the two evils for us. I missed tonights game so I can't say much, however our back up is scrivens who prolly gives half of leaf nation a heart attack when he handles the puck. Also he can't redirect the puck as well properly and gives bigger rebounds. Reimer is still trying to improve in that aspect, I believe it's mainly due to Rick St. croix is trying to make him more aggressive in his game, from a passive goalie who would go back inside the net ala Francois Allaire. Some nights he'll barely give it up other nights he'll have more control.

I honestly can't say. We've done it in the past and gave them a good beating of it too. We might be able to since our first line finally woke up while second line has gone to sleep and third line is due to wake up. It's always a Jekyll and Hyde game for us as we are playing well defensively now under Carlyle but we can't be sure if we will explode offensively or not. PP isn't also a strong part of our game so even if we do go on the PP, we tend to struggle.
