Devils/Islanders (Nov 21)….. Thoughts from Section 209!

Damn.. I just did this a day ago :p (it’s not like anyone had much to say about it… guess it’s hard to comment when they WIN eh?)… pretty darn good win against a lesser team (I told you there is a lot more suck in the East then the Devils… amazing how people can’t see past the wise-ass, and see there is HOCKEY TRUTH in there too, I get that alot in my section because GOD FORBID my goal at a hockey game is ENJOY MYSELF right??)

Sadly I’m kinda short on pre-game banter… it takes more then 24 hours to re-charge pre-game wackiness… the cigar girls were sick of me and I only got one free soda for my lap motivation… ah well, least no one did Batman songs… or that weird moment…”Hey I’m a friend of Lynn’s… errr we like broke up in Feburary” (awwkkkwwwaaaarrrrddddddddddddd)… so anyway this game was fun… sooo

the Good:
— The Crowd was into it (a few too many people here for my like) and I don’t hate the Islanders… in fact.. I feel nothing but apathy for them and like I said when they came into our row and they booed them… Hey I’ve BEEN to their building… I’d come here too!!!
— the offense has COME TO LIFE (Lord knows how), but it’s good to see Elias and Clarkson and Salvador and Martin (2 games in a row) getting on the damn scoreboard!
— ZACH PARISE… OMMMMMGGGGGG… AAHHHHHH!!!! THREE ASSISTSSSSSSSS!!! (ok you need to be near 209 for that one :p)
— Langenbrunner also with the 3 helpers, he’s very quietly FIXING shit!
— Weekes was solid and nice to see him off mothballs… didn’t make any big saves but with the Islanders you shouldn’t have to!
— the Devils are starting to dominate play in chunks and entire periods of play… maybe this team is “getting Sutter hockey” (or the damn coach is figuring out his team!)
— MIKE MOTTAU 3:16 SAYS I JUST LINDROS-ED YOUR ASS!! WHAT A HIT!! (and ensusing fight, again proving how flamingly homosexual the instaigator rule is)
— Brian Gionta… short guy… shorter goal (had to do it once)… again good to see him come to life with Elias and Zubrus
— that 5 on 3 was the most hilarious thing I think I’ve ever seen…. the whole damn team was collapsed to under the faceoff dot… shot shot miss shot shot miss… Parise missed the layup… but Witt lost his stick making that kick save (I swear the Islanders D had more saves then the goalie), then Langenbrunner damn near breaks the other D-s shin with that bomb… and FINALLY Martin finished it off in a near 2:00 of comic gold!!!
— Paul Martin had SIX SHOTS… and it’s no coincidence this team got going with the best defenseman on the team starting to look borderline all-star out there!

the Bad:
— How the hell come we could never support Brodeur with all this offense on the stiff Islanders?
— no Madden… and Barry Tallackson… blah.. nice story but now they need a linemate with heart problems to finish off the combo of him and Mike Rupp (if you think that was improper you missed my baby seals jokes in 209 tonight!)
— Rupp/Pandolfo/Clarkson?? EEEEPPPPP… that needs to change!
— that pitiful attempt at the wave from 208 to about 212 all 3rd period…. LAME!!! I even got texted about it like it was my damn fault people suck in 213 and beyond!
— Petr Vrana ON THE PP!?!?!? (and still 4:04 of ice time *sigh*)

Devil’s Got A New Diguise

Holy quotable Aerosmith, batman! Martin Brodeur has a new mask design!

Breathe…

I was just as shocked as you are. The main design of Marty’s world-famous mask will remain the same, but the devilish “J” that has always graced the upper part of his helmet, has now been changed over into an “MB30” logo.

The new design relates to the new website Marty will be releasing soon: martinbrodeur30.com.

There are some great quotes and insider info about all of this over at Tom Gulitti’s Fire & Ice Blog.

A new look for a new style, perhaps?
