Yay!

Marty tonight, a better defense, some forwards starting to click ....

Looking forward to this last game of 2011.

Tonight will be the 82 and final game in the 2011 calendar year. Right now this year would be a 100 pt year for the team (a win tonight would make it a 102 pt year). Unfortunately the year is split over 2 seasons and 2010 was a horrible year.

Well, today's game not included, there are 5 games left to the halfway point. The team already has produced 20 wins. A 45 win season would be phenomenal for this team. From the preseason I figured if they got through December relatively well, which they have this team would be able to compete for a top spot in the conference. String together one of those 6 or 7 game undefeated streaks and that becomes a reality.

Letsss go

Lord Ned Stark

damnit. forgot to set my lineups and put henrique in.. oh well.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:10
At least Carter is back. Janssen over Boulton? Whatever. At least both aren't in the lineup.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:11
Not sure what Larsson was doing there...

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 12:12
Good job Sal

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:15
How in the hell is Malkin standing by himself for 30 seconds in one of the most dangerous areas of the ice???

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:16
Elias is just so smooth.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:18
This Zajac, Clarkson, Tedenby line is terrible. They seem to kill the momentum every time they come out.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:18
Ok Larsson, you probably shouldn't go charging into the offensive zone when the 4th line is out there :laugh:

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 12:21
Asshead decisions like the one that Foster made right there are the reason why this team has given up so many SHG. Scratch him and put Tao on the point.

Just an atrocious play

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:21
God they are so dumb when on the PP.

jkrdevil
12-31-2011, 12:22
With Zajac back how do we not have a natural center on the first PP unit?

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:23
Tedenby is so smart in the offensive zone. It's amazing how he can be so bad in the D zone.

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 12:24
Janssen out against the Malkin line...

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:26
I think the Devils should just roll with their regular lines for the PP

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:29
Larsson has made some questionable plays so far.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:30
Tedenby is so smart in the offensive zone. It's amazing how he can be so bad in the D zone.

A lot of his defensive problems begin in the O zone.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:31
Kovy turnover counter is already at what, like 3?

How did that not go?

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:31
Penalty Shot!!!!!

Vinnie
12-31-2011, 12:31
Turn on the game in time to see Moneybags pass it backwards in his own zone straight to a Penguin.


Penalty shot!


Ok, I forgive him...for now.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:32
Scars !!!!

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 12:33
I nearly threw my remote through the wall when they showed that Foster replay before. Just a moronic play.

Glad we are out playing them though.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:33
I sold it.

Zajac's Bowl Cut
12-31-2011, 12:33
did Orpik even cover that? lol

whatever, ill take it

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:34
A lot of his defensive problems begin in the O zone.

I'm not talking just about turnovers. When they get hemmed in the zone, he doesn't know where to go, who to cover, or even what to do if he gets the puck. You could say he's forced into that situation because of a turnover in the O zone, but I wouldn't say that's the case more for him than any other player.

Devilsfanatic
12-31-2011, 12:35
He's so clutch at the PS/SO attempt. Which is so odd because he usually sucks at it. If I set CI to 400KB, it looks like ****, but I can watch, so I'm contented.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:35
Zubrus needed to hit the net there.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:37
How the hell is that not a penalty on Depuis? Clear boarding...

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:37
Parise - Henrique PK is a thing of beauty.

Devilsfanatic
12-31-2011, 12:38
Damn, we should be up by two or three.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:39
That was a head shot on Parise.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:39
Now Larsson gets away with a board on Asham.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:40
Very soft call on Asham

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 12:40
Great, 4 mins to give up a shorty.

Wow full two minutes of 5 on 3

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 12:41
Foster is regressing big time. Devils are getting away with a lot, now have a 5 on 3. Have to score. Pens will get lots of makeup calls.

Zajac's Bowl Cut
12-31-2011, 12:41

LETS GO

Almost halfway through the season and Clarkson has out scored Kovalchuk the entire time.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:50
Get ready for the makeup calls this period.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:51
If the Dev's breath funny they are going to get called.

jkrdevil
12-31-2011, 12:54

They play better holding a lead down a man than at 5 on 5.

Devilsfanatic
12-31-2011, 12:57
I didn't even see what Staalsy did.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 12:59
Pittsburgh had some really bad calls against them.

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 13:00
Neither did I. Also weird they blew the whistle when the Devils had the puck.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 13:02
3rd period Steve?

Yeah, Pitt has kinda been screwed with calls so far. However, they WILL get tons of makeup calls as the game goes on.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 13:05
Henrique is so smart with the puck.

Devilsfanatic
12-31-2011, 13:06

Sykora must have blamed Staal. Would like to have heard the douches in Pittsburgh about that, Erry and Steggy must've lost it.

Still easing in Zajac?

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 13:07
Zubie, you got more time dude.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 13:09
Another weak call.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 13:09

jkrdevil
12-31-2011, 13:11
Foster is clueless out there. Horrible pinch leading to that shorthanded chance.

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 13:12
Yeah, he's really stiff as a board back there. Can't make risky plays if you can't skate.

Devilsfanatic
12-31-2011, 13:12
I want to see how many SHGs we give up this year for the lulz.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 13:13
Terrible D by Kovy.

This is utter insanity by Oates, DeBoer and crew. Kovy can't play the point. He can't be counted on to play D. And Foster is far too slow to be in that position. It's not working. It won't ever work. It needs to change. Why can't they see that? Are they just stubborn?

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 13:13
Kovalchuk looks sick to me. Seriously he looks ill.

Zajac's Bowl Cut
12-31-2011, 13:14
lol the Pens broadcast team has to make the point that recent games with the Devils-Pens "haven't exactly been the most exciting hockey"

That problem with that play was the defensemen on the ice idiotically pinching after the puck got turned over leaving the forward back alone. Honestly you put any of our forwards back there on that play they get beat like that.

TheUnseenHand
12-31-2011, 13:16
No Volchie :(

Clarkson Falls Down
12-31-2011, 13:17

I know. But Kovy has made some terrible plays on the PP too leading to breaks the other way. The point is, it has to change. When the offense isn't going, Pete changes the lines. When the D pairs don't look good, they get switched. When the PP gives up SHGs every time out, it stays the same. I don't understand.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 13:20
I can't believe how much I look forward to watching the PK.

JimEIV
12-31-2011, 13:22
Sykora looks like he is skating in mud.

His legs are pumping but he really isn't going anywhere.

Janssen goes head first into the boards.


Is it too much to hope it might knock sense into him? Man, I have such an appreciation for our Euro fans who do this every night. It's 3:10AM here and the 2nd just ended, and, yeah, I'm ready to sleep. Mad props to Getzo, RNWC, and the rest. It is a pain in the ***.

Brodeur bailed them out that period. They owe him this period.

BTW, Does anyone know if this game is a sellout?

TheUnseenHand

Yet another offensive zone penalty by Carter.

Carter must take more offensive zone penalties than any other player in the league.

If one goes in here, look out.

TheUnseenHand

Malkin is a monster. Great D by Fayne and Malkin still gets a chance then draws a penalty.

JimEIV

Fayne got a little graby and still couldn't slow down Malkin.

Zajac's Bowl Cut

Oh and an odd use of a timeout. Everything was going fine.

Devilsfanatic
12-31-2011, 14:12

And now we're on the right track to that OT. Good grief. I'm so sick of the inability to keep it drama free. Not like they didn't have chances. Ugh, please end this in REG NJD.

Thanks and same to you! We just arrived in Montreal, had three awesome days in Lake Placid. Skating at the oval is fantastic, Stars on Ice was great. They have something called "skate in the New Year" here, we will go to that, apparently you skate until 1am and they have fireworks and ****. Ottawa game on Wed. then back home. Weather here right now is AWFUL though, haha.
