New Jersey Devils vs Buffalo Sabres – The Morning After

Posted by on November 17, 2011

The Morning After series of posts will try to present an idea of what fans are talking about and how they’re feeling after every Devils game.

Good, bad or indifferent, it will be fun to see what the reaction is from most fans the morning after a game. I will pull reactions from Twitter, Facebook, and any other public source where I find something good.

I will also include links to reactions and recaps of the game from some other sites.

Most will be post-game thoughts, but I will also pull some from during the game.

On Twitter, I will take a sampling of tweets sent to me and tweets I find by searching the #NJDevils and related (also opposing team’s) hashtags and include the user name.

From other sources, I will include only a first name and last initial. If you see something of yours here and would like to be linked or unlinked, feel free to let me know.

Here we go…

Devils 5 – 3 Sabres (videos of all the goals are below)

The Reactions:

@kgkramer: Killer saves. Brodeur’s still got it #Legend #NJDevils

Daniel V. (Facebook):will the Kovy haters speak up now? sure seemed to be loud enough when he was injured, saying we should trade him

@jiggakate: Would have preferred a cleaner 3rd period, but I’ll most definitely take that win! #NJDevils

@Lipari22: 5 goals tonight by the #NJDevils and a victory! Such a great game tonight by them! #LETSGODEVILS

@shadowpwny: Great effort tonight by my #NjDevils <3 way to give Zubie an outstanding 1,000th game! :D

George L. (Facebook): I’m glad that a guy like Clarkson has 6 goals already…He deserves the hot start alone based on how much people throw the guy on the “lets trade him” list when trade rumors light up….

@radametz: The effects of the NBA lockout are clearly present, as the #NJDevils get 2 of the Top 3 plays on the @SportsCenter Top 10

Mikey M. (Facebook): Even with the Blueskirts winning streak, the Devs are only 4 points behind them. Hahaha! This is gonna be a fun rivalry this year.

Tim H. (Facebook):Watching highlights this AM. So nice to see Marty and the Devils back in form. Amazing.

And, of course, some of my own tweets:

@SpeakoftheDevs: #NJDevils are in the 8th playoff spot in the east! Just gotta hold on for these next 65 games…

@SpeakoftheDevs: Thru 11/16 last season: #NJDevils had played 18 gms. 5-11-2 (12 pts). This season: 17 gms. 9-7-1 (19 pts). 9th win last season came 12/15.
