One more thing I would like to add. Before this series a lot of Devils fans liked the matchup with the Panthers. Thought we matched up well with them cause of our regular season record. Truth is the Panthers aside from Boston who swept us were the only non divisional team to beat us more than once in regulation this season. Toronto beat us once in regulation, and once in a shootout. That big lead we blew in game 3? That was not the first time that happened against you guys this season. Even game 1 we were lucky to get out of there without you guys tying it. Our first game together this season the Devils scored 3 goals in the first, and wound up losing 4-3.

We never had a problem with Philly catching up against us in that series, and Philly caught up against Pittsburgh from big leads a few times in their series. I felt the Devils protected leads very well late in the game vs Philly, and against the Rangers early in the series. The Rangers were falling behind, and playing with the most desperation when they tied us after 3-0, and 2-0 leads in the last two games of the series. So Florida matched up with the Devils very good, and a lot of what was happening in the playoffs happened between us in the regular season too!
