When we play Pittsburgh it's always Richard Park and Ben Lovejoy potting the goals. It seems to always be someone stupid against the Lightning as well.

The thing is I'm not exactly sure where the source of this problem lies, but it needs to be corrected.
Speaking strictly about the Devils here, the reason their 4th line tore us up was because we had a mediocre 3rd pairing D, we were rolling 5 D in the playoffs. Girardi and McDonagh were doing a great job against NJs big guns, but we had a completely tired out lower pair who got dominated by the Devs 4th line. Adding some depth defenseman would fix that problem in my estimation.
