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.
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'.
