If a game goes into an OT shootout 0-0 then that's no puck luck. I caught some of this game and I can confidently say we got outplayed by a Rangers team that was more driven than us.
No way, what part of the game you watched? We were the dominant team in the first, we had so many chances in the second period, EASILY could of had 3-4 goals in that period alone, there were so many high quality scoring chances, and the third was the Rangers trapping to keep the lead. We dictated the game, didnt get stuck in our zone for too long and had sustained pressure in their zone, we just had no finish as usual. Look at the Rangers three goals, Moose had a bad play but it was still a lucky ass goal and that was right after Kovy hitting the post, the second goal was just a perfect rebound off the boards, and the third was a 2 on 1 breakdown. Im sorry but the team played really good IMO, especially considering our forward group at the moment. With just a little more finish and better goal tending the Devils would of have won 6 of the last 8 games. I may be the only person who is not mad that they lost the last 3 games because the effort was there and they were able to play their game in every one of these last three. It is what it is, I still think the ship has already been righted and the wins will start coming again, but I am the minority I guess.

“I think winning against them in the big stage, not just for me, but for the fans of New Jersey, people that are supporting us and always take a second seat to these guys for whatever reason, now they’ve got to be pretty happy going to work and going to school and doing all their things that they do." - Martin Brodeur
