Finland is to International Hockey as the Devils were to the NHL starting in 95. 

 

Not that exciting to watch and the bigger ice surface makes it harder to break a really good defensive system.

 

Can't say I am surprised in the slightest. I felt Finland should have been a favourite going in (Anyone know what the odds were?)

 

 

At least Kovy scored the only goal, so it takes some heat off of him as he stays back in Russia.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Anyone else find it hilarious that after the handshake they saluted the fans, who then booed (whistled?) them right off the ice?  Haha

The Russians are Finnished (see what I did there).
Right about now I expect Kovy to be on the phone “take me back Lou!”

Sorta good news for the Devils; Zuccarello broke his hand. :(

 

 

You can easily say the Zuccarello has been the Rangers best and most consistent forward all year. He was quoted as saying he'll be ready to play when the NHL season resumes but I guess will see.

As DR33 said, at least Kovy can point as say "hey, I scored.  I did my part" so he'll probably avoid some of the heat.

 

I wonder how hard everything crashes down on Ovie, if at all.

I feel like this pic would make a good "capture this" thread.

I'm going to withhold most of my bashing until the US wins its game today - don't need to invoke any bad karma for our guys.

Didn't see it, but was it similar to this reaction?

 

Wow.... What a goal.... This is depressing, I miss those days.

I'm sorta looking forward to rooting against Elias today for the first time in ages..it feels pretty weird. It'll be interesting to watch him from the other side for once.

It would be good for the Czechs to lose so that Jagr, Elias and Zids can get some rest before the seasons continues. Jagr and Elias are not the youngest anymore.

Does it make you a bad American if you're kinda sorta rooting for Elias/Jagr/Zidlicky to win today, or can we chalk it up to being a good Devils fan?


I take that back. Go team USA!
