Although I will say, perhaps blasphemously, will the Devils really be better with Clarkson and Zubrus? Dean-o has been good and CLIFF continues to be solid.

You know what's simply amazing?

48 of his shutouts have come in 0-0 1-0 or 2-0 games. A little under half. That just boggles the mind. On nights when he's not getting much offensive support in those shutouts he rises to the occasion. Very little if not any room for error in those close games. Letting in just one changes the whole complexion of the game.

I thank you, ESPN, for reminding me why I never turn on your dog **** station anymore.

ESPN's "king of the night."

Eli manning, kings basketball and kentucky basketball all beat out Brodeur..

That's what I'm saying. I am reminded why I don't watch ESPN anymore.

And Bergfors is emerging as a Penguins killer. Love it..

Even the game highlights on NHL.com are a massive fail, they used the Penguins feed instead of Doc and Chico for this historic game.

That is the feed they had for gamecenter. Probably has something to do with it. They do have Doc's call of the final seconds.

I'm still astounded by the way our depth is coming through in a big way the last couple months. What do we do when our players come back from injury? What lines do we run in the playoffs?

My guess:

Parise-Zajac-Bergfors
Rolston-Elias-Langenbrunner
McAmmond-Zubrus-Clarkson
Pandolfo-Niedermayer-Zharkov

The best part about our roster and this lineup is that nearly every player can be put with any other and the combination still produces. Lemaire has this team playing a smart brand of hockey, and it's amazing to watch.

Absolutely agree. You just can't say enough about the job Lemaire has done. Players are becoming familiar with everyone, not just two others. Parise with Elias and Deano tonight and they looked good. Classic lemaire.

Pikk and Peters, as you have reflected in your lineup, need to be out once Zubs and Clarkson come back. There's enough grit in that lineup. Plus, salvador is just bad ass this year. Sticking up for everyone and clearing the front. I love it...Salvy is just full of awesome.

So many combos we could have, this team is insanely deep right now. How many teams can sport such depth and interchangeability?

"Must-watch TV on Monday night as the defending Cup champs see where they measure up with the red-hot Devils."

This was the quote from espn's power rankings concerning the Penguins.
Probably not the result they were hoping for.

I still remember all their experts there pre-season ranting on about how NJ would miss the playoffs. Feel like writing into those two *******.

Our top 6 is just scary, every single one of them is a potential 20 goal scorer (and that's being conservative). Opposing teams cannot concentrate all their defensive efforts on just one scoring line, because then the other one will burn them.

Our bottom 6 is full of grit, heart, and experience, and we can get a decent amount of production from them too. I'd say the only thing we're missing in our bottom 6 is a reliable faceoff man.

Regardless of Parise's goal drought, he's 6th in the league in scoring.
