the point i'm trying to make is that it doesn't go to game 7 if they are playing the way they are playing now. it might not even go 5. as it was, they were extremely lucky to get out of that series and as i said at the time, we should've beaten them - they were extremely vulnerable. i don't think we get past philly but the east looks a lot different now if we knock them off. as it is, the better team and better coached team luckily slipped past us and now is playing the type of hockey that might bring home the cup. but the quotes are out there as i mentioned above.
Never Satisfied? Will you not give this team an ounce of credit? Nor our rookie coach? Come on now. Surely the devils are playing better now but this panthers team was excellent all series long. The only reason we lost this series was the first 10 minutes of game 1. Other than that our pp was outstanding, our goaltending was astounding, defense was terrific, and everyone contributed on offense.
I find it hypocritical that you say the better team and the better coach
