Yeah, I've managed to get sucked in now. It almost feels like the prelude to disappointment. Before I could just be disappointed in them losing and just "meh" my way to the offseason. Now... especially if the Rangers choke too...


Yeah, same here. It would be a big enough disaster if they lost tomorrow even if Boston won. Now... it would be Chernobyl level.

the bruins losing, the rangers possibly losing, and so forth, just shows yet again that the playoffs are one giant crapshoot. tonight has no impact on my disappointment if NJ loses tomorrow.

As it shouldn't. The disappointment should be that the Devils should not be tied 3-3 right now with Florida, and whatever happens tomorrow, they most likely the better team throughout the series. The Rangers have certainly not been the better team. The Bruins ran into Ken Dryden 2.0. The Devils didn't run into any special goaltending at all.

Yeah but if we do it'll really be a good opportunity wasted like max said earlier, with the way this draw's working out.

And even if the Rangers win tomorrow, they'd get stuck playing the Caps who've beaten them out of the playoffs two of the prior three seasons.


if the devils win and the nyr lose, its officially a crapshoot even with their bipolar play, the headcases in washington, the dirty flyers and the green sens.

if it comes down to it the caps wont upset the nyr this year unless holtby turns into varlamov 2.0 and they stop with their own head issues. im still sticking by my guns it's the nyr representing the east.

I think no matter what team it was that there would be similar comments if it happened in a different city. Even from Devils fans.

That is an outright lie. IT has the same problems that any place in NJ or any other urban city has.

Top remaining seed vs bottom remaining seed and so on.
Assuming we win:
Rags win = Rags vs Caps, NJ vs Philly.
Sens win = Philly (top remaining seed) vs Sens, NJ vs Caps.
It's 1 vs 7 and 5 vs 6
or
5 vs 8 and 6 vs 7.

Sorry, that's still a copout. You sound like a bitter Billy Beane crying the playoffs are strictly luck.

The season's an utter failure if they don't win tonight. Just because the Pens got beat by a rival, the Canucks ran into great goaltending and the Bruins had the wrong matchup, doesn't excuse the Devils for their lack of urgency at different points during 4 of the 6 games in the series.

They have one last chance to make it right but if they don't, it's on them.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Did anyone else have a delayed feed of the game yesterday? When I checked my computer after the end of regulation I was surprised to see that Washington had won in OT. At first I thought I had messed something up with the DVR, but I was defiantly see the live I was getting from my provider, just weird

lol, no. the playoffs are largely luck. haven't you seen enough favorites drummed out of the playoffs to realize that? 'The Bruins had the wrong matchup?' No - the Bruins weren't that much better, they ran into a hot goaltender, and they lost. It's the NHL playoffs.

The real ridiculous claim is that the Bruins had the wrong matchup, but it's the Devils' lack of urgency that's going to cost them the series. What about Boston's lack of urgency? No - they had 'the wrong matchup'.

If the Sens can take down the Rags, they might have a chance to tak down Philly as well. I was shocked that in 2002, when choker Lalime shut them out 3 times...
