Game 79: Playoff Flame All But Extinguished

Posted in on by Dan Pennucci

Quietly, the Devils’ improbable climb into the playoffs was dealt a catastrophic, yet not fatal blow Monday evening in Newark, as New Jersey fell 1-0 to Calgary and goalie Karri Ramo. Monday’s loss was a game Devils’ fans have become all too familiar with this season: a strong effort from Cory Schneider squandered with no goal support, the Devils outshooting their opponent, an opposing goalie stopping seemingly every shot, pucks falling inches short of their intended target and a team desperately scrambling for an equalizer against a bottom dwelling opponent.

Monstrous Win Over Wings, Little Gio Steals Victory

Posted in on by Dan Pennucci

The Devils received the biggest victory of the season on Tuesday, snagging a 4-3 win over Detroit and closing the Red Wings’ lead in the Wild Card race to just one point. The Devils potted goals in the first minute of the game and the last minute of the game with some spotty play in between along with a few bright spots in what could have been Martin Brodeur’s last game with the Devils, but won’t be.

Stephen Gionta’s deflection with under 40 seconds remaining in the contest off a Mark Fayne wrist show flew past the shoulder of Wings’ netminder Jimmy Howard and rewarded an aggressive New Jersey team with a victory after generating pressure in the offensive zone.

To say the win was vital for New Jersey’s playoff hopes is an understatement, especially after the Devils ceded the equalizer off of Todd Bertuzzi with 10 minutes remaining in the third, looking utterly lost on the penalty kill. Franzen proved to be a force in the Detroit lineup, scoring once and firing the shot that hit Bertuzzi in the absence of the team’s two most dynamic players, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk.

Tuesday’s win was the kind of game the Devils had seen go the other team’s way earlier in the season, especially in the stretch of games leading up to the Olympic break. In that span of contests, the Devils allowed late equalizing and winning goals from opponents, showing themselves seemingly incapable of getting that next goal to close out games. Tuesday was different, almost a microcosm of New Jersey’s season.

Trailing 2-1 entering the third period, the Devils grabbed an equalizer on one of the most bizarre plays hockey fans will see.

Following a glove save on a Marek Zidlicky point shot, Howard snagged the puck in his catching mitt, only to see it knocked from there and into the net by the stick of teammate Jonathan Ericsson and that of Patrik Elias. Travis Zajacj put the Devils ahead several minutes later on a tremendous backhand finish on a Howard rebound. The goal was assisted by Jaromir Jagr, good enough to pass former Los Angeles Kings’ great Marcel Dionne on the league’s all-time scoring list.

The Devils have won three of their last four games and face these same Red Wings Friday night in Detroit before a must-win game against Carolina Saturday.
