Yeah they did pass poorly and didnt get many shots in but thats just it. They defended superbly. That puck off the post isnt a fluke. The d is forcing the play a little outside. The d does block shots. The goalie does make good saves but how many plays did the Devils bail on or got broken up because of the defensive play. The Rangers have won all season long and won two seven game series against two severely under rated clubs. The Devils almost lost to a club that probably had no business getting further than the first round. There is a reason they are whete they are. The credit doesn't go to luck and a goalie with five additional net minders. Credit the team. As long as the attitude is that the Rangers luck will run out soon, it's not going to end well for them. Give other club the credit and respect they deserve.
