On that particular play I won't fault them. I agree they have been pretty crappy this series. But come on ... someone falls down in a pile, skate blade comes out of nowhere and cuts your face. It's really hard to assign blame for stuff like that.

Madden got cut by a skate accidentally. Ozolinsh was perhaps indirectly responsible since he knocked Madden down - you can't fault the refs on that one.

Most of the Ducks fans on LGD are morons (MOST, not all). For them, this series with NJ is not even about NJ; it's about Anaheim surpassing the Kings as the most accomplished franchise in California. When Anaheim loses, most of their anger is not directed at the Devils fans ... it's directed at the Kings fans who are trying their best to drive the Ducks fans crazy.

The Devils haven't made ALL the goalies they faced look ordinary. Grahame played quite well. It was only one game, but still. Khabibulin was really bad for Tampa. A hot goalie in that series and anything could have happened.

I despise the media. Article from The Sporting News:

The part that particularly bugs me:

The few players worth watching are in the West: Peter Forsberg, Markus Naslund, Joe Sakic, Sergei Fedorov, Todd Bertuzzi, Marian Gaborik, Jean-Sebastien Giguere, et al. If you subscribe to NHL Center Ice and you live in the East, start staying up late.

WHY is Giguere on that list? Has this series not yet shown people that he is giant pile of goalie equipment that can barely move in net?

Once again, it is clear that the media picked their storylines before the finals, and instead of watching, they just spout the same drivel. If NJ wins tonight and Giguere gets the Conn Smythe, and nobody in the media contests this, I swear heads are going to roll. I don't know where, but they are ...

If Giguere posts two incredible games, then even if the Ducks lose I can accept him winning the Conn Smythe. But not now; he still has something left to prove.

I don't think the Ducks themselves feel like they are playing "bonus hockey". Minnesota definitely did when they played Anaheim, but I think Anaheim feels they are the best in the West, and they think they should be able to beat NJ. This means they will be under a ton of pressure for Game 6.

Oddly enough, I think this all works in NJ's favor. Sure, NJ has had issues in closing out series before, but I see Game 5 generating a lot of positive momentum. They didn't win with defense; they won with overwhelming heart and determination. That is the sort of thing you can carry over with you. Games 1 and 2 were very one-sided, so I'm not surprised NJ didn't get any momentum from them heading into Anaheim. I think Game 5 is different ... the effort will linger and create a huge boost in Game 6. Everybody is contributing offensively. Stevenson hopefully has one or two more games in him, and he made a huge difference. Brodeur has something to prove, and he has always been strong following shaky games. If Nieuwendyk comes back, that's the icing on the cake.
