    I said it lol. If you get a chance to go back and look you'll see it.

    You're down a goal with just under 3 mins left. You don't have Hischier and Bratt on your top unit, and you don't pull the goalie to get a 6-4 advantage? that is extremely bad coaching.

    I know. They owned us. That was a shot at us, not vegas. Vegas played like crap for what they are capable of and still killed us. The score didn't really reflect how much the ice was tilted.

    I thought the entire defense played pretty darn well. You can't fault them for goal 1 which was a brutal Zacha turnover. Goal 2 was bizarre although I wish someone would try to push Carpenter out of the way. Goal 3 was a bizarre deflection off Pacioretty beside the net.

    The entire defensive corps played well. Need more from the forwards

    I am as disappointed as anyone about how this season has played out but so many just can't give the Devils credit for playing Vegas tough on the road. It was a 1 goal game for **** sake

    I give credit when it's due. I'll admit the top line had a decent game. The rest were not good and couldn't take advantage of playing a garbage goalie and a good team that played a bad game for what they are capable of. I know this team can do more. Even with Hall out. But this team has 2 speeds this year: A competent, decent looking team or dumpster fire. The game only seemed close because Vegas played like garbage and their goalie has no right being in the NHL.

    Subban had a solid 3rd period including a couple of deflection saves in close. The one on Bratt was as good as it gets

    Yes you can. Greene could've stopped that from ever happening but had horrible positioning, par for the course with him this year.

    No because then we had a sliver(however slight) of hope of getting back into the Playoff race but we had to put on a hell of a run.

    If we won tonight, hope would remain.

    Now it's all gone.

    So NOW we can all go give out Participation Trophies to all the children. Yay. :eviltongu

    Not a chance I'm pinning that on Greene when Zacha gave the puck to Reaves just inside the blue line

    That is on all 3 players involved on that goal againt. Zacha for a bad pass, Greene for atrocious defense, and Kinkaid for letting it trickle through. It can be more than just one person at fault for a goal against.

    They're just Hynes' words parroted by the players.

    Clearly Hynes has not done a good job trying to teach these guys how to manage the game.

    Absolute garbage. I'll give you that Keith would want that one back as it wasn't a good shot at all but I'm not riding Greene for that. Am I nuts here?

    Fine, be in denial about him also being at fault. doesnt change it from being a fact and that it happened and they scored there.

    Palmieri in that shooting spot at the top of the circle on the PP makes me cringe. He's not creative enough to run a PP - you know he's going to just shoot it and score every 10th try.

    I don't understand why he isn't slotted on his off-wing in the shooting spot. Just have Butcher/Nico feed him one-timers.

    They fell asleep in the second period. The first and third periods were good for the Devils.

    LMAO blaming Greene when Zacha literally hands Reaves the puck on a silver platter.
