I still think kings in six. NJ will end the streak on Saturday.

Going 1-3 in game fours with a chance to sweep at home shows immaturity.
Yes, considering NHL teams in an 0-3 hole are 1.8% lifetime, which is another way of saying the team that is up 3-0 wins 98.2% of the time (I crunched the numbers in misery after the Kings won on Monday).

That said, and I know this sounds cheesy, if there was a team that could pull off a miracle, this Devils team never quits. Look at all the injuries they're playing with, and the bad breaks they've gotten, and they dont seem to feel sorry for themselves. I genuinely believe they will make the series 3-2. But beating LA again in LA will be a HUGE BURDEN to ask of them. However, if they could do that and somehow, someway get it to a Game 7 against a relatively young Kings team with a goalie that has never won an elimination game in his life....against Martin Brodeur? Woah, baby. But of course..... I'm pretty much dreaming here **sigh**

The seven hour drive will be worth it!!
It will be 8 hours or more for sure. Although, Saturday morning is about the best possible time to make that drive, but you cant go by GOOG maps given they're not counting the border, and breaks, etc....

Watch the replay. I know Eddy O said "Elias bumped Quick", but please keep in mind he's shamelessly, ridiculously, and unprofessionally rooting for the Kings on live television. If anything, Quick gives Elias a little rap, but either way it was no big deal, and not worthy of a penalty on either player.

Some of them are going with mustaches like Ryan Carter and calling it "Mustache Power". At least they're having fun and not laying down and dieing like a lot of teams do when down 0-3. Lets a fan feel good/proud about his/her team despite the miserable situation they're in.
