    You won’t win many games when you’re 0 for 9 on the powerplay and your opponents score 2 from 5 with the man advantage.
    Decent game though.

    We are Losing the plot at the wrong time and I think Sheffield will be the team to beat in playoffs... please don’t let them win that again :(

    The steelers were too physical tonight and finished every hit why can't batch play more shifts would have liked to seen him put in defence when we lost Strachen ,
    Apart from Strachen and Myers our big hitters didn't turn up tonight ,can't remember the last time I saw Paris and Pope give a good big hit such big words in off season but haven't come true but very pleased we signed Strachen he is the true package

    Re-signing Strachan would be one of my first priorities if I was coach. We were looking shaky defensively before he arrived and he`s made a huge difference, making us much more solid at the back end and covering for the shortcomings in Reddick`s game. If he’s on an MBA package, I think that’s a 2 year course anyway isn’t it? In the running for our most influential player this season for me.

    Was I watching the same game as you guys tonight? I was there and a thought the best team lost tonight. We outshot them 50-27, and that’s not including the 3 times we hit the post. I thought Moose had a fantastic game in goal and should’ve won MOM. The boys put in a full 60 minute performance and I can’t blame their effort. There is no need to worry, WE WILL win this league comfortably. And I’m also not worried about Sheffield in the playoffs, it’s Manchester and Belfast I’m worried about.

    Very very unfortunate if Bownsey is carrying an injury...let's hope he is being rested as a precautionary.

    No disrespect meant to Capitals (but I can't put it any other way) but the 'easy' games are the ones where one team puts 8 goals passed the backup goalie of the 12th ranked team in the league. The REAL challenge at the moment is to get results against teams like the Steelers and the Giants who the Devils still play twice each very soon.

    In the last 7 games, Devils have actually only played 50% hockey - losing to Panthers, Storm , Giants and Steelers. That is a real cause for concern......at a time when the Devils should be getting in their stride.

    The team is tantalisingly close to achieving another dream. Steelers played physical and solid defensively. They and all our other opponents will be trying to build momentum for the playoffs. Let's hope it's not at our expense.

    Missing one or two influential/impact players from the roster at such a critical time surely requires a rethink in style and strategy of gameplan.

    Championship winning teams usually have the ability to adapt and execute to get job done.

    I'm beginning to suspect that some accounts on the inferno are bots that just make up posts from random combinations of the phrases "physical" "bullied" "Bordy" "happy clappers" "boring" etc
    We were unlucky to lose tonight - both their first two goals came against the run of play after concerted pressure on our part. And the Strachan pen sealed it.
    Yes, our PP was unsatisfactory, but it's been working well all season. And we need to be more direct on goal sometimes, I'll admit I was screaming "shoot!" a few times. Both of those are valid criticisms of tonight's game. But from the comments on here you'd think the Steelers and our league positions were reversed.
    On a positive note (is that allowed?) thought Murdy looked solid, goals weren't really his fault. Sweet goal from Martin. Good offensive zone time and shots on target. Hopefully all those will pay dividends on Wednesday.

    Granted wasn't great tonight but don't think there's been to many games where we've not scored a pp goal. There top PP % in the league so he must be doing something right plus Lord can't do it from the bench, up to the players on the ice

    So unlucky to hit the posts 3 times tonight, but to me we were second best, we played pretty fancy but we weren’t clinical enough, losing Strachan who is such a great player was a massive blow, and then coming up against the best netminder in the league didn’t help our cause. Steelers are coming back into their own again, and they will be the biggest threat in the play offs. We will win the league, and rightly so, after that I think it’s a lottery. Hopefully those words will be shoved up where the sun don’t shine.

    It depends on the structure but if full time (which doesn’t mean you attend every day however...) it is generally an academic year and then the Summer to complete your dissertation.

    Agree about his influence. An excellent signing.
