I know many of you are going to want to kill me for this...but this game is over really. They came out strong, scored the first goal, had chances to put them away (5 straight powerplays!) and that was it. One stupid penalty by Hale was all it took, and Carolina swarmed like madmen around out tired team late in the 2nd.

Still, it was one heck of a run by everybody, this team was a machine the last month of the season. As old ghosts fade away (Rangers) new one's crop up (Carolina in OT). They accomplished more than anybody imagined this year. They willed a great season out of nothing. For that I say thank you.

This team was left for dead in January, look what we did.

I consider our season a much bigger success than Ottawa's or Colorado's.

Thanks boys.

The way this season started I never thought they would make the playoffs let alone get the atlantic division title.

I was laughing to myself yesterday thinking about the non goal goal in Philly. It was quite a ride and can't wait to see what we have in store for next year.

Now go buffalo.

Thanks for finally not only beating the Rangers but embarassing them - in 10 years we'll forget this stupid series with the 'Canes but we'll never forget that one.

THANK YOU DEVILS!!!
As fans, you gave us a lot to be thankful for this year.
I think of that new year's eve game & thought it would be a very long year.
Then you turned it around & gave us a lot to cheer about.
My hilites:
Watching Kozlov in shootouts.
Elias returns with a vengeance
Gionta scores & scores & scores
Gomez continues to be a great play-maker.
Parise's rookie season, a lot to look forward to.
Incredible end to the regular season, with the Montreal division clincher to end it.
Sweeping of the rangers.
THANKS AGAIN, SEE YOU NEXT YEAR.

I just keep thinking back to November and December and how frustrated I was back then. This team went further than I ever dreamed they would go.

Thanks for keeping your heads up and fighting all the way until the end of the season in MTL.

After all the losses from the offseason, and the way things were going earlier in the year, this team recovered unbelievably and made it to the middle of the playoffs. The offseason will fill the gaps needed.

thank you devils for giving us a great 2006 (we'll forget 2005!).

thank you for yesterday too. in truth, this carolina team was superior in speed and execution, but the devils showed heart in refusing to be swept.

thank you.

First ever time as a Devils fan that I am not angry, mad, upset, frustrated or anything else after being knocked out. This series won't be bugging me at all. It was a successful season and our luck just ran out in this series.

I wasnt expecting too much from this Devs club,our coach had cancer,our best player had hepatitis,the best defenseman in the game left with nothing in return and our hall of fame leader had retired.We were left with more questions than answers to be sure.
There were some great thrills tho.The 2nd half run culminating in a Atlantic divison championship.The exorcising and embarrasment of the Rangers.The rise of Brian Gionta into an elite player...

That all said, this loss to the canes still stings.The effort in gm #1 and the bitter gift of game #2 ended the season too early.

Cant wait for training camp to open..........LETS GO DEVILS

As everyone has already said, with the struggles earlier in the season and losing our head coach, we have made something out of nothing. We've made a statement in the NHL, in my opinion. We've accomplished more then any team this year and pulled this far into the playoffs. I really thank the Devils for giving me one hell of a season, and as dissapointed as I am, I look forward to seeing what changes will be done in the off-season and I definately can't wait for next year.
