"It is difficult to say anything else." the Nico Hischier is certainly not the only player of the New Jersey Devils, the after that memorable game against the Tampa Bay Lightning struggling for words. 6:7 after extra time, the devil, and this lose, after you achieve at the beginning of the final third of the 5:3. But then what has already happened so often, and what provides also shake the Swiss striker only for the head happened: "once again, we led with two goals in the final third to win without it."
The game at the Prudential Center in Newark is under the "Halloween"themed, in the end it is for the Devils to horror night.
The Devils have now in October, in fact, something amazing accomplished. Not only they lost games five of its previous seven home. No, in the case of four of these low-you led with at least two goals. The exception is the 3:4 against Edmonton after a penalty shoot-out: As they led by just a single goal, with 3:2, a Minute before the end of ... "What-if-calculations" are always so one thing, in this case, many a Devil is likely at the moment, the questions: "What if ...?"
Hischier searches and finds to this 6:7 against Tampa, something Positive: "It would have to be zero points, at least one was." This is true even in spite of late playful 5:3 lead. Because the 5:6 behind the Devils out of the same by Kyle Palmieri only 7.4 seconds before the end of the regular season. It is the third hit of the American, with his hat-Trick, the spectators celebrate as common in North America, with the Throwing of the Caps on the ice rink.
After the late 6:6-balancing the Devils will have to be removed the many Caps for Kyle Palmieris hat-Trick goal from the ice.
Otherwise, the relationship between Devils is complicated-Fans and players now. Once again, the team is booed several times during the game. Not Palmieri, Taylor Hall, the star striker of the Devils, the after the game on the palm: "It seems that we fight now against our Fans. The game is a draw and Boo. Something created for the away team is a good environment ..." Because of the frustration on hall's own-goal at the 5:5 maybe play along ...

And Speaking of star players and the wrong direction: be fat way PK gets Subban. The prominent new transfer in the Devils defense makes for resentment. In the build-up to complex game-prone defender in five of the seven goals against on the ice, makes for many confusing scenes and it is in a on both sides of defensive interruptions game to stand out in a negative out.
After the game, the otherwise rather as a speaker well-known Canadians in a quiet voice information: "I've influenced the game, but not in the desired direction. I think that was my worst game yet."
Hischier: "It is frustrating,"
And the Swiss for the Devils? Mirco Müller is surplus and is likely to ask when Viewing the often hair-raising and bustle secretly: Why? The small, offensively strong players peppered the Devils defense would not be a big, burly, defensively solid defenders such as the Winterthur damage, at least on this evening.
And Hischier there remains nothing, as to describe several facts as "just frustrating". It is a paradox: The Devils only have two won of their ten Games to date – exactly those who missed injured of the Valais less than two weeks ago, wrote in his new 7-year contract. The Center is also, after eight operations, not just on his first goal of the season, but also on "his" first win.
It will be tried against Tampa, but not both: if a new line of Its Swedish buddy Jesper Bratt, whose two hits prepared Hischier after all, as well as the learned Center Pavel Zachahatte the 20-year-old Valais in this combination have never had as a winger beside him.
If it is not running ...
"This is the first goal you want to bring as fast as possible behind you and I've always managed," says Hischier. There are two Time missing him on this night, the open gates, only very little. The two scenes are identical. Hischier scavenging in the Slot, go there, where there is from the opponent most of the punches, coming-to-shot, margining and "Onon shot" – the sense of achievement remains.
During his first Topchance is, after all, at the origin of the 2:2-compensation for hit and he is rewarded with his first of two assist points, he is the second of Tampa's defenders rudely, a Tackle in the American Football similar to the heap of dangers. The fit to the overall picture as well as the scene when Hischier after a against him, displayed a penalty with the referee collide.
Two-Time Johnson hurt
And if it is one of the service providers is not running, then does the opponent, the nerves are also not far. It is hardly a coincidence that Tampa's Tyler Johnson drive gives, ten minutes before the end, during a game break, of all things, Hischier when Passing a fine, but a nasty slashing from behind in the legs – just like that. It is the perfect subtle provocation, the young Swiss loses the version.
Even more Hischier and the Devils hurts but, as of this Johnson in Overtime to the 7:6 is true. "At the moment luck is not on my side," says the Swiss. "So I have to focus me on other things, to be able to helping out the Team." To a lot of missed goals he wanted to think about now, not at all, says Hischier. "But that's difficult at the Moment."
