Stanley Cup Final Game 4 - NJD @ LAK 8pm - The Malfunctioning Boards Special
 


See what I did there?

Life is a journey.

Last season, the pain was unbearable....but we bared it...like a bear would.

Then something changed.



But it was not meant to be...

Or so we thought

In the hallowed history of HF Devils gif parties, this may have been the most glorious and unexpected of the bunch.

Of course, in only New Jersey Devils 2010-11 fashion, we fell second fiddle to Reggaeton in our own building...didn't stop us.

No fans inside brah.

Thus officially began our long off season.

After seeing other big name players go and having the chance to lock up our most important free agent, we signed him for one year.

After missing the playoffs for the first time since 1996, we hired a guy that never made the playoffs. Good job, Lou.

Finally, sense was reached and we signed that other guy...for a year.

The season came around and who knew this guy would be the best player in preseason

Well, it looks like he did.

The season began like any other, massive expectations of a fanbase disappointed for 8 straight years.

Then things started to happen.

http://media.nj.com/devils_main/phot...1759-large.jpg

We could have folded. But then our King arrived on the scene



The rest of the season until late February was a blur because I had hockey coaching myself...but I do remember this.



See what I did there?

It took over a year for the boards to repay their debt to us. But it happened.

February and March may have contained some of the most annoying hockey this team played all season, so I'll skip it.

What did happen was amazing:

http://media.nj.com/devils_main/phot...1759-large.jpg

Oh yeah, he got hurt...AGAIN...and we all predicted the replacement

http://media.nj.com/devils_main/phot...1211-large.jpg

We resigned BRIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh.

But we made the playoffs. From Lottery to Playoffs in one year.

We needed it against the Panthers



twice



We needed it against the Flyers



We needed it against the Rangers



From Lottery to Stanley Cup Final in one season. Let it sink in.

Everything malfunctioned for an entire season...what is 3 games?

I know that 3 games does not win a series.

I know that 3 games is possible for this Devils team to win.

I know that 3 games is ironically close to 3.6%.

I'm sick of Kings this, Kings that...

Did I lose my hand?

Those are good hockey players...let's go kill them.

Btw awesome gdt

manilaNJ 06-06-2012 06:37 AM

This is amazing. This GDT deserves a win.
Be winners for this thread, Devils. It must be done.

MadDog172430 06-06-2012 06:41 AM

Greatest GDT of all time. Everything perfectly put into perspective for those who could not see it.

LET'S GO DEVILS!!!!

Devils Unseen Hand 06-06-2012 06:54 AM

Just looking to vent here...

If I read about how "Near Perfect" & the "Zen-Like Play" of Quick is against the Devils one more time, I'll smash something!!!

The reality of it is (and this is for all you trolls out there) that unfortunately, the Devils players haven't truly tested the guy with any quality shoots. (That's been a Devils problem for many years, making average goalies like superstars)

Had they stayed calm & focused, and elevated their shots when in position, (especially on the PP) this series would be 3-0 Devils & Marty's save percentage would be swapped with that of Mr. Quick.

The Devils won't win this series & if they do, there truly is a God. All I ask of them tonight is to at least win & pull it together for another win at the Rock for us fans. If we lose in 6, as a fan I can live with that.

To have to read all of the papers from now till October about "the clinic" the Kings put on us, when in fact, the Devils did it to themselves with sloppy play, I'll feel like Herbert Morrison during the Hindenburg crash.

I'm done venting. Just win!!!

Go Devils!!!

Basement Cat 06-06-2012 06:59 AM

Just win this one.

RNCDevil 06-06-2012 07:02 AM

New Avatar. New Day. New Series.

Let's Go Devils!

Devils Trap 06-06-2012 07:04 AM

Please don't be swept

cj225 06-06-2012 07:22 AM

I have hope..and I'm a sucker for punishment...PLEASE WIN ONE GAME!!!

CerebralGenesis 06-06-2012 07:45 AM

Last year we had a 4% chance of winning the lottery

It landed us the #4 pick.

That's the past, tonight is game 4.

In order to make history as the 4th team to pull it off...

We need to win 4 games in a row.

Do this man proud http://images.wikia.com/icehockey/im..._Ice_2_new.JPG

4th time's a charm

kyle evs48 06-06-2012 08:03 AM

Who was the last team to make it to the finals after having a lottery pick the previous year?

Stigy 06-06-2012 08:10 AM

So glad to see the GDT even if it may be the last one for a while.

This is as excited as its ever been in a long time and I love every minute of it. For all the hate talking we made it to the SCF after having a lottery pick last year and no one can take that away from us. No matter what happens at the end of this series another banner will be raised at the Rock and that is okay with me.

The Rangers don't get a banner and neither do the Flyers and I think denial is setting in for some of their more hardcore fans.

What a season and I hope next year is just as exciting. Whatever happens tonight happens - I'd love to see it come back to the Rock. One game at a time boys, one game at a time.

NjDevs4994 06-06-2012 08:12 AM

Win!!

Saugus 06-06-2012 08:20 AM

Great retrospective of the season. What an odd journey it has been.

I want the Devils to win tonight. Don't get swept, and keep the season alive. No surrender.

Richer's Ghost 06-06-2012 08:22 AM
