The league is going to do everything in it's power to keep NJ afloat and back on track much the same way it's done for PITT , PHO etc .

You seem to be more of a Devils fan than Rangers fan. I made some negative posts on this board, but EVERY post that I've seen is either a negative Rangers thread (because g0d forbid we beat a team in OT that took Boston during their hot streak to shootout, beat St. Louis, Detroit, and lost in a shootout to Columbus).

P.S. They're 9 points behind us and we have 1 game in hand. That's the second biggest gap for a division lead in the league. The biggest gap is the Canucks, but they play in a joke of a division and we play in the 2nd best.
Just to add to what you said Snowblind. On 2/1 the Rangers were 10 points ahead of the Devils with a game in hand and 2/20 they are 9 points ahead still with a game in hand. So as much as the Devil's have been "rolling lately" they made up a whole 1 points in 9 games played.
