Whatever. Wake me when the playoffs start, which we are like 99.9% to make at this point and more than likely in the 6th seed. Whatever happens in the first round will depend on which Devils team shows up.
The first goal was a bad bounce and we just couldn't convert on our PP. You change that and it goes the other way. Hell, maybe even take the bad bounce out and it goes the other way. There were other games in the season where we were dominated more than tonight.
I just want Zajac back so that Boulton and Janssen don't play. I would even call someone up from Albany and play them before those two.
I'd even call up Mills/Tedenby/Zharkov and put them in before those two in the playoffs. No one wants to fight in the playoffs, because they know how important it is to not be in the box for 5 min.
After the Rangers loss on Feb 27, the Devils' third in a row, people at HF were going crazy about a huge losing streak after having won, what? 8 in a row. And about losing to Boston and Washington in the next two games. My comment was:
Devils now only have 4 more games left against division rivals (Pitts x2, NYR, NYI) in the 11 games remaining. The rest of their schedule isn't easy, but it doesn't appear to be nearly as difficult as the last little stretch.
Yeah we got 2 left with Ottawa (those are very important games), TOR, TB, CAR, games with Western teams DET, CHI, and Colorado.
It's a lot more manageable than what the team has gone through for sure.
I came in peace.
