Zach Parise is a man of no words following Game 3

Trying to say less than John Tortorella after a loss takes a lot of work. For Devils captain Zach Parise, that’s the exact kind of work he put in today.

After the Devils dropped Game 3 to New York 3-0, Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice reports Parise declined to talk with the press following the game. When Devils coach Peter DeBoer was asked about Parise’s silence, he said he didn’t know anything about it but if Parise wasn’t talking “he’s got good reason to.” Is Parise frustrated dealing with the Rangers on the ice? DeBoer said he didn’t think that was the case.

Parise already wasn’t answering questions regarding his father, J.P. Parise, said Zach would “fit right in” playing for the Rangers next season. While the elder Parise later clarified his comments, it’s clear that it’s a subject that the captain would rather not be asked about.

Wrong time for a big distraction or just a one-game cooling off period to let things blow over after a loss? We’ll see soon enough.

    He had to run home to change his “feminine napkin”.

    Detroit can have him. He was as invisible in the locker room as he was on the ice today.

    Nice knowing you, Zach.

      Amen Vin, amen. Send him packing to the 313.

      Can’t be any more invisible than Hossa was in 2009……
