The Devils have been bad the last two games. Like, really, really bad. The type of hockey where you sit back and scratch your head at how a team that looks so lost mentally is actually beating another group of professionals. Turnovers everywhere. Inability to clear the zone. There's not enough negative words in the English language to accurately describe the brand of hockey that is being played.
With that said, If that's what is takes to win games, I fully endorse it. I'll take ugly wins over undeserved losses every single day. I will sit in the stands and cheer every turnover. Root for Cory Schneider to play the puck more. Hope that Salvador's minutes go up. If I know the end result is going to be 2 points, I will cheer for every dumb ass decision this team makes on the ice.
Win ugly, Win often, Just Win Baby. I said it last game and it may have to become the motto for the season. You know how bad these two wins were? The players in the locker room were being interviewed like they lost. The first thing Jagr mentioned was how piss poor they were for a majority of the game. A 3rd period come from behind win, and Jagr can't even justify how they have been winning. He looked like he had a migraine even thinking about the first two periods of Saturday's game.
Good for Adam Larsson. Finally getting a big tally in a big spot. Hopefully, that makes it impossible for Petey to drop him out of the lineup. He looked like he got a 10,000 pound monkey off his back when he was celebrating that goal. The kid needs to get a legitimate shot to contribute. He's not nearly as bad as some make him out to be. He's still young and the potential is still there.
Are all the people who were on Cory Schneider suicide watch back off the ledge? He's easily been their best player in the last two wins. He's managed to hold the opposition to 3 combined goals in games where his supporting class has been one step above brain dead. The way the rest of them have been playing I am shocked they are even able to dress themselves. However, a win is a win. I will take them however they want to come, even if they are barely watchable.
