08:04 AM ET 04.15 | At this point, with the season winding down and the bubble looking as if it might burst, forgive the Devils for trying what they can. [Martin Brodeur] said he's switched up everything he can think of to try to change his and the team's luck. "I've changed all my watches every game, all little things like that, that I believe for my own doing," he said. "I know it sounds silly maybe for the common person, but for an athlete they know what we're talking about." ... [David Clarkson] usually is the last player off the ice at the end of warm-ups and takes a final shot at the empty net, but has tried going off the ice earlier at least once as well.

Detroit has its Octopus, maybe the Devils can throw a Catfish or something. If they're really that desperate.

I'd settle for a pitchfork and some diabolical laughter over the P.A. system.

There's an idea. During a break have pitchfork shined up and down the ice with the lazer lights and have the laughter over the PA. That would probably get the crowd going.

Or maybe a horse's head. You know as a tribute to the mob roots of New Jersey.

It's why he wants to bring back the tie game and drop regular season OT/shootouts...he's a huge fan of what is also known as the sister-kisser.
