Just read the Devils GDT. I respect this Devils team for what they have done to make it this far in the playoffs, but it seems like the majority of their fans here on HF are quite immature. They never give any credit to anything NYR related. If you go to our Around the League thread, we give credit where credit is do. Not so much over there. It's like talking to a bunch of 10 year olds.

I'm looking forward to a great series. I honestly think it's up for grabs. The Devils have a formidable set of forwards. Their defensemen can be exposed by a hard forecheck, however, and I hope that Torts continues to play that way. Philly tried to finesse them to death, but when you have forwards that are committed to playing a two-way game, you will not win that way. Both goalies can steal a series. Can't wait, DROP THE PUCK!

Who knows, Rangers might score 3-4 a game on average this series and get a serious confidence boost when it comes to putting the puck in the net.
I also dont think marty is what he use to be in playoffs. When he was in his prime you were LUCKYYYYY to score 1 goal

Crash the crease. When Marty sees people in front, he begins to flop like a whale. Hopefully, refs won't be buying his fake goalie interference BS.

Oh relax guys with the Devils GDT it's all in good fun.

I actually found it pretty funny. It's a great rivalry, let's just have fun with it. No need to get all bunched up over something so small as that.

Gotta start the series off right. Don't want to make Game 2 a "close to" must-win game so early in the series.

Sixty minutes of NYR hockey, let's get Fatso and Kovy off their games tonight...need to be prepared for the Devils because they'll have fresh legs.

Get it done.

This. It actually provided the LULZ when I went in there. That whole potato thing is hilarious. Like the poster above me said it's all in good fun. But let's not do the same thing here just because they're doing it on their board. Let them have their fun, let's focus on the hockey game and the series itself.

Seems to me almost every guest caller on WFAN are strongly favoring the Devils in the series. Same with NHL Home Ice on XM.

I love that. Remember the '08 series? I love a 50/50 split in the Maus. or in Jersey. Won't be the case for games 3-4 though I'd imagine, since the Devils fans have were able to buy tickets before the NYR/WSH series was over. The Devils home games will be rockin' with the majority of fans wearing red, white + black.

Devils fans thought the streamers and fireworks were over the top for our wins. I hope we ordered even more for this series just for them.

The table is set for the Ultimate once and for all Pwnage of the all the sour Ranger haters.

8 wins away for the Rangers to win the cup and for Henrik to earn his nickname in the eyes of even his most critical detractors.

1. Beat Brodeur and the Devils... again

2. Win the Cup

3. Win the Vezina

Than the man who would be King will truly hold that title in the eyes of the all. Lovers and haters alike. There will be no dispute... they will all bow in respect.

The King

8 wins away

A lot of cocky Devils fans out there. They had a strong 2nd round and are feeling like their team is unbeatable. They might not realize this is a new series against a team that not only plays defense to the man, but like it or not... has a better goaltender.


Right now the Rangers and the Kings have the lowest GAA in the playoffs. The two teams with the two regular season Vezina candidates... just putting that out there. You know because sometimes defense has been known to win championships.

I don't know why. The Devils have little to no advantage.

Most of the matchups favor the Rangers.

From a Rangers perspective, only think I would be concerned about is the Devils do have a good 3rd and 4th line.

That's it though.


Too many people are banking on the Rangers being tired out. imo.

the flyers played foolish hockey. they skated right at the devils into constant turnovers, they never adjusted their style against NJ.

Look no futher than how NJ fared against a defensive, scrappy Florida team... nearly eliminated and took a game 7 OT to win it.
We're alot better than Florida.

Rangers in 6, maybe 5.

Some of you are being equally arrogant. This is a 50-50 series. I'm nervous as hell.

the NYR defenders have had problems with teams that pin us in our own zone. We can block shots, but history has shown that if we get very little puck possession we do tend to lose the game.

Haha..I don't know if it was 50/50, but it was close. I'd say close to 60/40. There was a regular season game back in December of 2010 that I'd say was 50/50..bout as close as I've ever seen! But yes, most likely they will be able to get mostly Devils fans there for the games in Newark..and good for them. But I won't complain if we get more in there than they think we will!

Haha..oh you and me BOTH. I want streamers, I want fireworks. I want Maaaarty chants before the puck drops, and after he gives up a goal. And I want we want the cup chants after each win. The more pissed off they are, the better!

Devils are playing great hockey right now no doubt. Key to the series is the forecheck IMO.

They bring that up every victory in NY almost guaranteed you'll find something on streamers and fireworks after a victory they need to get over it

Very much agree. This is going to be a long, grueling series. I'll be happy if we win it in 6. I'm expecting 7 though.
