Rooney is a little twerp drunk with power. His history with the Devils started back with the infamous icing call while we were on the PK in the playoffs vs. the Rangers.

Madden tore into him and he's held the Devils in contempt ever since. He's the one with issues and deserves all the crap thrown his way.

A pair of tough calls hampered the Devils' efforts to draw even late in regulation. The Devils had pulled Brodeur with about a minute left, and Jamie Langenbrunner was called for hooking on the ensuing 6-on-5 at 19:06.

Needing a goal, New Jersey kept Brodeur on the bench, which kept manpower even at 5-on-5 with Langenbrunner in the box.

Moments later, Paul Martin was pestered by Blair Betts as he carried the puck through the neutral zone, and dumped the puck in from the Devils' side of the red line. Michal Rozsival touched up behind the New York goal line, and the whistle was inexplicably blown for icing with 36 seconds left.

Instead of having the chance to fight for possession in New York territory, play stopped and the faceoff went to center ice.
