"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."

Awesome. Simply awesome. I'm telling you- when I saw the puck in the net and the ref pointing (I was afraid they were gonna blow the whistle, so I looked over at the ref just to MAKE SURE), I just went NUTS. Blacked out. Hugged everyone. Jumped up and down like a 7-year old. In 27 years of going to Devils games and being a die-hard Devs fan, I've been fortunate to witness some great moments- many in person, including game 7 in 2003. But I've never got to experience a single moment quite like this, with section 214, as I have every home game they've played in this run so far. It was just incredible, and I'll never forget it. This is soooooooooo sweet right now. I know we have 4 wins to go, trust me on that- I'm not satisfied yet. But this has been 18 years- no- 30 years in the making. We finally stuck it to those fvcking a$$holes. FINALLY. I'm gonna enjoy this til Tuesday or so. Just amazing. We're in the Finals baby!!!!!


I was at both games too...and you're right about the singular moment. The other reason I was able to physically celebrate more than 2003 Game 7 was I wasn't sick as a dog with the flu the way I was at that game :lol: After celebrating with the guy I've been sitting next to all year, I went back to 208 and found a few of the guys I had sat with before this year and said a quick hi and hugged my former seatmate too.

It was just insane...I was trying to text my friend to give her the final score update just after the buzzer and someone just jumped out of nowhere and hugged me and I dropped my phone into the next row behind the seat lol. Fortunately the seats in front of me were empty (they'd been filled with opposition fans pretty much the last two rounds) so I had to spend a minute or so retrieving it so I could finish the text and take pictures with it haha.

I was holding my breath for several seconds on that play cause I thought it was going to be blown dead any second, but it didn't occur to me to look at the ref. Thank god it didn't matter.

"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

Beating the Rangers to go the finals, is right up there with the greatest moments for us fans. What a great night. We finally stuck it to them and made it hurt.

Haha, that's awesome bro! I would love to hear everyone's stories about how they reacted. It's a moment we will tell our grandkids about one day in terms of Devils history. It's huge in so many ways. And what's awesome is I was on line for the restroom between the 3rd and OT and this Ranger fan with a Krieder t-shirt fresh off the Modell's rack was talking all kinds of sh!t, saying "you think you're nervous now, you're gonna be sh!tting your pants Sunday night". Actually, I'll be enjoying a nice Memorial Day BBQ Sunday night dipsh!t. Hope you finish crying by then.

The video of all the guys walking down the hallway hugging Lou, puts the biggest smile on my face. This is a team. Every man has had there role and deserves it. I feel bad for Boulton and Janssen, but god this is amazing!

I've literally watched the video 5 times. Really wanted to be there tonight, but you gotta love this team!

Dude where in 214 were you? I was in a Parise jersey and red hat (I know, very distinguishable) all the way on the left in the second row, which is actually row 3.

I seriously almost passed out while celebrating Henrique's goal. I have vasovagal syndrome and had to sit down for a second to regain myself, if I didn't do that I definitely would have passed out. It was fun watching almost all the Rangers fans head for the exits the second the puck went in the net, and the Rangers fans who went to the game with their Devils fan friends sitting there waiting for the celebration to be over so they can get out of there bahahaha. Glorious.

I'm in row 5- there were a couple dudes a few rows in front of me who were Ranger fans stuck there because they were there with Devils fans. All the other Ranger fans BOOKED- and I mean BOOKED for the exits. They were ghosts. Glorious is right bro!!

I have missed a lot of you guys fwiw. I know there are a lot of old timers here and people who will go to the ends of the Earth for this team. Congrats to you all. The negativity at this place can really be a drain sometimes, but honestly, this is well deserved. Enjoy this. I know a lot of you have waited a long time for this.

In a very odd coincidence, I've had the good fortune of meeting a great Devils fan and an even better person during these playoffs. MadDog, you're the man buddy. Die-hard doesn't being to describe this guy. Nothing else I can really say. It;s been a pleasure to sit with you during this run. The little group we have there in 214, well this has honestly been just an amazing experience. We'll have these memories forever.

Congrats to you all again. Relax and enjoy the next few days off. It's okay to breathe now.
