Biggest key is weathering their storms. We might get jammed in our own zone but stay responsible and keep them outside.

Special teams are going to be the difference.

We're not going to survive just "weathering the storm"

Time for a change in strategy.... Let's see if DeNier has the guts... He's made so many right decisions already

I say Trap!.

If they're going to go down they have to go down sticking to their structure. They can't switch philosophies after 105 games.

There's too many key guys on the team hurt or shot, Marty's going to have to carry them across the finish. It would be nice if Zajac came to life though, he's capable of being a big gun offensively and he's one of the few that isn't hurt (afaik) or shot.

"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

A trap isn't going to stop them, they're too good in the offensive zone, and the Devils aren't going to be able to keep them out of there.

After witnessing the successful result of Clarkson's pass to Henrique late in Game 4, I wonder if it would be possible to try some passes upon entering the O-zone once in a while. The Kings lately have been adept at stopping our dump-ins. Maybe a change-up like that would throw them off. Of course, the Devs would have to wait till the opportunity presents itself. So we would need to be on the lookout for such openings.

Score first. The Queens are better than we are, but we're tougher. If we somehow bury the first one, I could see them unravelling. If they bury the first one, I don't know that we have the talent to come back with the injuries.

When they are out-chancing us 4-1 it is hard to score the first goal unless you get lucky

I think we're gonna get outchanced no matter what. We can make changes, but the only change that would make us the better team would be getting healthy. We need Marty to be brilliant, or to get a little lucky. I think if we do get lucky, they'll handle it poorly.

I don't recall which game it was, but I remember Zajac taking a pretty nice slash to the wrist. Not sure if that hurt him, but it could have.

Id settle for some more d to d passes in their own end , trying to always forward the puck results in some dicey turnovers

You do know that Devil fans are so used to being in the playoffs that people save their money for the later rounds, right? Triumph
