"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

The thing about the Rangers is that you could dominate and keep them pinned in their zone for a while. They somehow manage to keep the pucks out and prevent other teams from scoring on them by their blocking/collapsing defense. Then somehow they figure out a way to carry the puck across, create an opportunity and score on the other end. This is something they've done a lot during the season/playoffs. Devils have to be wary of that part.

The next thing about the Devils is they get their first goal but then have trouble trying to put in the second or third goal despite getting many chances.

In '94, a Rangers loss would have devastated them...........the Devils could survive it ( I still haven't), and the Devs obviously did.

2012, a Devils loss would be devastating (mainly for the organizations psyche), but I believe the Rag$ can survive it.

Let's see that play out.

The Rangers had to go to 14 games to take care of the eighth and seventh seeds respectively. They are without a doubt the most overrated team left in the playoffs. Their scorers are not effective and are solely relying on the play of Henrik. All the Devils need to do is exploit and find a way to beat Lundqvist and they will have this series within the palm of their hands. I don't think the Rangers will be a match for the New Jersey forecheck.

The Rangers are beatable and weary.. all we gotta do is play Devils hockey.

I dunno what they think, but the reaction of the Ranger players after beating the Caps had an air of 'we just won the Cup'

That right there is fodder for our boys.

Extinguish the ghosts of 94.

They're playing a "opponent doesn't matter" game, but that attitude says it does.

They're scared, and are dependent upon the Queen.. get to him early and often and we can make quick work of them.

Marty has to pull out all of his tricks and our forwards have to go high on the Swedish Meatball.

It will be hard. it will be hell, but when all is said and done it will be worth it.

LGD!

The Rangers top 4 def have logged a TON of minutes the first two rounds, they'll be a bit tired. We need to come in hard and wear them down, and force mistakes.

Anyone know where I can watch the game with devils fans in NYC? I was hoping for an official viewing party... but it hasnt happened. And I do not want to go to the bars in NYC as it will be crowded with Ranger fans.

I actually know 1 bar on times square that is sopposed to be a devils bar (on 47th street) but Ranger fans go in anyway and it turns out to be 50/50.

Very true, but that will help the Devils Fenwick and Corsi numbers, so it is good for the devils.

Wouldn't count on it. Rangers D is young and well conditioned.

not worried about it. This is not like me or you playing a game and then having to go to work the next day. They have access to the best therapy equipment money can buy and a staff of trainers and massage therapists to help get them fresh. Devils have had 5 full days off, but the Rangers have been off 3 of the last 4 days. Not as if they were playing a game every night while the Devils were resting.

Surprised they put that picture on the back of The Post. You'd think they'd put one a little bit more flattering for the Rangers.

The track record re: teams' play going into the 3rd round following two seven-game series wins is pretty bad. This is what I am hanging my hat on more than anything else, as far as the Devils winning the series goes. Lundqvist has really owned the Devils' shooters, as we all know. I'm glad many of my fellow Devil fans are feeling so confident, but I don't see how they're any closer to solving Lundqvist now than they were previously. I can see several games where the Devils outplay the Rangers, but Lundqvist's play steals a win. And if he shuts the Devils down for 3 or 4 periods to start the series, I can see the Devils already getting frustrated and gripping their sticks a little tighter.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Well, in that case I guess the Devils can't lose. I mean, NO PART of you, NONE! Funny, a Flyers fan said the same about the Caps-Rangers series. NO part of her thought the Caps would not beat the Rangers.
