The difference between the way we have been playing and the way the Devils play is that they have an incredible counter attack game, which we lack....but we have much more skilled forwards who forecheck and control the puck in the other end better than the Devils. We also aren't as strong infront of our own net as the Devils, although we have gotten much better in that department.

We also don't seem to have the true "Shut Down" line like the Devils have.
