I never thought I'd be so happy to see the 2cnd round.
Like I've said - I think we're playing with house money now.
Obviouslly, play to win - but I think this moment deserves its own thread for right now.

I think, even given the collapse, the resiliency of beating out the GM7 CAR curse will do wonders to exorcise some demons for the fans, management, and a few players.

I'm quite guilty of being on the negative side so far - but having seen some resiliency now I can have more faith - Let's take a moment to celebrate!

:cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Hey, we already vastly improved from the crap show last year, not only got back in the playoffs, but advanced to the second round. I call that a huge improvement. PDB!

Now, it's 12:30 and I gotta get up around 7ish and get to work in Somerset about 45mins away :wacko: good thing tomorrow is Friday. don't think I can fall asleep right now no matter how tired I am

Hey, second round! We've already surpassed the expectations of most analysts and fans. I'm good with it even if we lose.

Philly is a much stronger team and they really need to play their butts off the entire series.

It feels good to be in the second round again- been a while lol. But you know what would feel even better? Being in the conference finals. Let's take it to the Phailures. This 'aint 2010.

We have been out before the second round for so long, this feels almost. That said, we have the best team in the league coming up next.

I actually said after game 5 or 6 that if the Devils won this series somehow, I'd be fine with the Devils losing in the 2nd round in 3 games.

So satisfying to finally get another playoff series win. Considering where this team was a year ago, I'll gladly take it. Anything else is gravy.

Stayed up until 345AM to watch the game after recording it before because I was in NYC. went the whole night not finding out who won either game Rags or Devils. Totally worth it. SECOND ROUND HERE WE COME!
