Still not completely sure how a lineup that featured Mike Sislo, Jordin Tootoo, Stephen Gionta, and Steve Bernier managed to pot 5 goals. More so I am still trying to figure out how 2 of those players were the actual scorers. Bernie and Gio in the goal column. What is this? The summer of 2012?!
I can't believe Scott Gomez is actually a serviceable NHL player. Legitimately can't believe I am saying that. He hasn't played for than 2 NHL games this season and he's probably already the second best passer on the team behind Jagr. Thats because 80% of the team can't make or receive a pass, but it's a bright spot none the less.
I think I played it right this time. Go up 2 goals and just become resigned to the fact that they would blow it. I started filling out my dream shootout lineup when they went up 5-2. Take 'dream' with a grain of salt. Anytime a Devils' game goes to a skills competition it is a fucking nightmare. Anyway, tonight is a night to focus on the positives. They worked hard, they created chances, Brunner and his 6 inch schnoz still can't finish worth a shit…oh wait, I said positives right? Cory is a stud. Zidlicky didn't kick anything in his own net. Merrill had a solid return. They didn't look like they were skating in quicksand. Good lord, it's a Christmas miracle, the Devils won a game comfortably! Are we back? Fuck it! Book your playoffs tickets, we're comin' in hot!
