Devils Weekly: NJ in Free Fall

I’m going to make this short and sweet. The Devils got outscored 14-5 last week, allowing no less than 4 goals in each of the three games. Their losing streak has also hit four games. Every single player has played to a negative rating except for the Devils fourth line and D Mark Fraser, who only played one game. To make matters worse, the only Devils to finish a game with a positive rating in any of the three games was C Adam Henrique against Winnipeg. Their play in their own zone is particularly sloppy. They continue to give up short-handed opportunities. They need to play better, plain and simple.

Quick Notes:

  • Parise-Henrique-Kovalchuk have combined for four of the five goals the Devils scored last week. The problem is that they were also on the ice for most of the goals against also.
  • D Larsson is back to logging the most ice-time for defensemen on the Devils and one has to begin wondering why? His mistakes are multiplying.
  • Neither Moose more Marty looked particularly good in net this week and that was reflected in them giving up 14 goals.
  • Marty had his second shortest start ever against Minnesota. He was pulled after 8:17 because he allowed three goals on the first four shots he faced.

Three Stars:

LW Eric Boulton-C Tim Sestito-RW Cam Janssen

They didn’t allow a goal, nor did they score a goal. This warrants them being named the three stars. Yes, it’s been that kind of week for the Devils.

I'm as happy as the Mets, Knicks, Lions, and Devils allow me to be.
