Bryzgalov played great for 2 out of the 5 games. He GAVE us game 5. Literally did everything except shoot the puck into his own net.

I don't think so. Look at the 3 goals, the Clarkson goal was the biggest fluke ever, goalies get away with that 99 out of 100 times, Ilya just has terrible luck. The Salvador goal was a perfect deflection off of Simmonds stick going in under the bar. Then the Kovy blast through a screen off the inside of the pipe was unstoppable. Even game 4 he had no shot. The Sykora and Zidliky deflections are amazing plays and Zubrus was left all by himself on the third goal. I thought his only bad game was game 1.

Bottom line he played great with having a god awful defense.

Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is!

i think since we are Devil fans, we dont appreciate how good they have been the last season and a half. Every loss pisses us off and makes us think its over. I think back to teh playoffs and i remember being bummed out many times and doubting they could come back but they did.Thats whats differnet about this years team, they came back. LIke Marty after a bad game, the whole team came back. Not like other years, like the playoffs agianst philly where they seemed to give up, they came back. they didnt let history tell them it wasnt possible to not beat the rangers, flyers and get out of the first round. Thats what made me proud this season even if they did loose in teh end (then i blame refs for allowing LA to shove Devils anytime they entered teh zone and many the bad call, even so i'll give LA credit). another big factor in my eyes is Pittsburgh got knocked out in the first round. I really dont see the Devils beating them but in fairness, i thougth they were done in Philly like i imagine so many others did. I like being wrong. Frankly i think the Devils are going to suck next year and players are getting older and wont put up numbers like last eyar , lots of injuries due to fatique from last year and age, Marty will loose it, and the 4th line will have blown its load but prove me wrong....please.

To me its more how the rangers made it to the conference finals... Everything went their way for the whole season i just cant believe they could do it again, they relied on their goalie, hard work and luck the whole time.

I saw that play out with the Devils since the lockout. You play 110 percent every game in the regular season and rely on the goalie to beat your opponents and there is no where to go in the playoffs. Yet the Rags made it barely past their first two opponents
