Did you watch the series? The Devils certainly did not play a trap style defense very much. They abused us on the forecheck. Badly. Then when we skated up, they stacked the blue line and let their puck-handling goaltender eat us alive with the chip and chase game we relied on.

This Devils team plays considerably different than previous iterations.
