Offical Devils vs Rangers thread

There's only one true number 30. Let's Go!! Take down the pretender to the throne!

That being said, I hope PDB and the gang have a plan to get around the blocked shots.

Obviously as the lower seeded team, you always 'need' the split in games 1 and 2.

But they REALLY need to get that split. Going home 0-2 is a scary proposition

The Devils CANNOT lose. So as far as am concerned they won't. There's too much at risk here: on one hand we would be done, on the other we'd be giving the Rangers the chance to play for the puke.gif...oops.

We can't give them the rite of passage....

I like that we play at the Garden first. I like just trying to go in there and only have the pressure of winning one.

I can't even begin to put into words what it would mean to win this series.

For me it means that I can, not shoot myself in the face.

Rangers have played a LOT of hockey thus far in the tournament. Devils need to take advantage of that.

I only watched the last two games of the Rags/Caps series, but Lundqvist gave up soft goals in both. He's human.

The Flyers were so impressive coming out of their series with Pittsburgh that they overlooked NJ. Hopefully NJ's impressiveness against Philly doesn't have them overlooking NYR.

Devils can win this. No doubt.

There's no way on earth they'll overlook the Rangers, that's about the 'only' thing I'm confident in this series.

We need the good Marty in this series. Game 7 against Florida, second half of the season Marty, otherwise we don't have much of a chance. Marty could make mistakes against Clemmer/Theodore and Bryz cause they would make them back. Against Lundqvist and their five other goalies it becomes that much harder to overcome a mistake though.

Devils have to stay out of the box, even though the Rangers PP stinks,

If you ask a Ranger fan that should be easy since the league apparently has it in for them.

Devils in 5.

The Rangers will win in 6 but the Devils will win in 7. You know what I'm talking about New York Post. wink.gif

How fitting is this series? We already killed the ghosts of Carolina. Now lets kill the ghosts of 1-9-9-4.

Lets Go Devils.

Nothing else matters.

The Rangers are going to be gassed. Two seven-game rounds is going to be a huge factor if the Devils keep playing like they did last round - they can wear 'em down.

I agree. Devils in 5.

The is a much better defensive team than we've faced our first 2 rounds.

we're also a better defensive team than Ottawa and Washington, and the Rags had a tough time getting consistent pressure against them as well.

I get the feeling it's gonna be a classic. They're better in goal. Their d is slightly better. Our forwards are much better. If Greene and Zid keep playing as well as they have, our d is plenty good enough.

Set up the forecheck, keep the pressure on Lundquist, hope you can get a couple past him.
