    Agree on Cory. He made a big save there. Maroon. Jeez. What a chance.

    That puck looked in but ya know Toronto hates the devils. Positives go with Corey imo if he gained confidence a hot goalie is clutch in the play offs. And the Devils gained some serious momentum in the third

    Crazy as it sounds but I still like our chances. Start Cory bench Lovejoy and get that win Monday night. 3rd period is exactly what I hoped for.

    I can see why we would think it's in but not enough evidence.... I mean, it looks like it did but can't see it. But had that been the devils, goal.

    God Damn that game was frustrating to watch. We had no business losing taht game, but Lovejoy decided to take all momentum we had and turn it to Tampa's side with an inexcusable penalty that jumpstarted the Bolts and gave tehm life. After that, they go on a 5 minute spurt taht ended the game. We literally played the entire 3rd period in tehir end nd dominated 45 minutes of that game, but still lost by 2 due to stupid as penalties by our "experienced veteran" players with playoff experience. Christ, Nico loks more composed as a 19 year old rookie than LoveJoy and Palms.

    Lovejoy needs to be out of the lineup, Palms needs bumped off the Hall/Nico line. Hopefully they can put togethr a full 60 minutes in game 3, they certainly haven't been dominated or outmanned by any stretch, bonehead mistakes are murdering them.

    On plus side, Schneids looked good. Maybe he gets a chip on his shoulder, plays like he's capable of and covers up a few of our dumbass plays we will inevitably make every game.

    Totally agree Linebacker. Weird but down 2-0 I don’t feel this team is out at all.
    By the way. What is up with Marchand? Seriously lick a player? What a dork.

    So definitely Lovejoy right? Bratt or Gibbons has to be in. I'm guessing those 2 in, Lovejoy/Stafford out? Would love to see Santini get a crack.

    Grabner.... Lovejoy....Greene(never)....Severson(not his biggest fan).... Boyle(never).... Pals(shouldn't but his lack of play).... name anyone, a lot don't deserve to be out there... biggest LoveJoy and Greene IMO.

    How pathetic that our 2nd rd pick traded away can't even validate his playoff roster spot right now... what a joke!

    Bump Palmieri to the 2nd line? Maybe swap him with Maroon?
    If Mojo is back bye bye Grabner... Bring Bratt in and let him work with the 4th... why not? can't double up Hall like this.

    I’ll tell you this all stems from the rest job in Washington. You will never be able to convince me it was a good idea. The team took the foot off the gas and haven’t been able to get it back. Every time into Tampa zone it’s 1 against 3. Going the other way the d can’t clear the puck and get pinned in and the forecheck can’t get anything going. It’s like they are just happy to be here and it’s strange because them wanting to rest in dc is the reason they are here and not in Washington or Pitt!


    I would start Cory and I think that’s what Hynes will do. He is the future and will need him next year maybe just maybe this is the spark to turn him around and the team too.

    Boyle has to come out just has to. He can’t even win a fucking face off and is useless on the second pp.
    Take love joy out please we all know he sucks but for some reason coaches love their vets I will never understand it

    Bratt and mojo for Boyle and lovejoy that’s my lineup with Cory in net

    Idk about the WSH gm.... I see it either way... My stance would be, no 20/20 involved, to rest the likes of a few that we need healthy and their energy/health recouped....

    It was Hall, Pal, Zajac that rested right? no excuse for the others.

    I'm torn on the Schneider in/out question. I mean Kinkaid is FARRRRRRRRRRRRR from the reason we're down this series. I do felt he looks a bit slow to react, pressure may be mounting against him and IMO he should've made that stop on the first goal in gm2(throw in there terrible position for goal #4 in gm 1). Did Cory really go all out to look better? were the Lightning trying as hard rather than playing prevent D.... idk... I don't see Hynes doing it, maybe he will(he does whatever), but I could see a quick hook if the game is close.

    I like the Boyle physical play but yes, his lack of faceoffs are killing us(among other players hurting the whole team as well) but do you break up Coleman/Zajac/Noeson?? I'd do it only that meant MoJo is coming back

    Bratt definitely in for LoveJoy.... Lovejoy shouldn't have had a seat on the plane on the way back in my mean opinion

    I agree... how much stock can you put into Cory coming in in the third when TB is up by 3 or 4 goals.... I mean really.... how hard are they trying to score at this point... The last thing you need is Cory starting and letting a few week goals in (ala all of 2018 so far) and his confidence will be shot... Which could then cost us game 3 and for sure the series.... The only major change I would do that to me HAS to be done is benching Lovejoy... the guy is just terrible.... They will never sit Green, but Lovejoy needs to go... As for the others, I would switch up some of the lines, demote/promote.... but that's about it... I really cant blame Kinkaid for a lot of those goals.... d didn't help him out, hell we even scored one for them.... How often does that happen.... Every lucky bounce is going their way and we are not burying any of our chances when we get them....

    I hope someone is getting fired up in the locker room and calling people out... wether its a coach or player.... something has to be done...
