2001 Devils scored 295 goals, 3.60 gpg, the highest total of any team from 1996-97 to 2003-04. They scored 58 goals in 18 games, 3.22 gpg through three rounds of the playoffs. Roy helped hold them to 11 goals in 7 games, 1.57 gpg, in the finals, and allowed only 1 goal in games 6 and 7 combined. Colorado's defense played very well, but Roy was the most important part

As a Devils' fan, it was shocking how much trouble that offensive juggernaut had at getting the puck past Roy. The injury to Randy McKay badly hurt the second PP unit, but that was the only major injury to the team.
