Hell, we may find that whoever has the forecheck rolling in the
few minutes will be the winner!
Thus far this playoff season, there hasn't been too much ebb in flow in the Devils games. They won about 15 of 20 periods in the Rangers series, and probably 15 of 15 in the Flyers series - at least 5-on-5. There were times when it seemed the puck didn't cross the red line for an entire period. Ironically, the Panthers were our toughest test because they had strong Dmen and could get the puck out.
I expect a tough series, and I don't expect some team to wilt - but I'm just saying it should be pretty apparent by the end of the first period if one team can consistently impose its will or not, and whether it is going to go 7 games.
Best of luck - Hope you guys are first losers.
