Is that really what is happening in the Atlantic this year?
The Flyers were barely better than the Penguins.
The Devils demolished the Flyers.
The Rangers are doing to the Devils what the Devils did to the Flyers.
Are these teams that far apart or is it coaching coming through at the right times?
I think match-ups had a lot to do with.
I know I didn't want the Rangers to ever face the Pens in the playoffs.
Philly was a match-up nightmare for Pitt. Devils were a nightmare match-up for Philly. And I think the Rangers have a favorable match-up in the Devils - well at least compared to Ottawa and Washington who give us fits.
Who knows what will happen in this NYR/NJD series though. Far from over.
Obviously one game is just a sign of what is to come
lol seriously, jump the gun much?
well since the rangers beat the devils in game one 3-0, theyll win the series.
kings beat phx 4-2, so theyll win as well, but since the rangers gave up less goals while scoring only one less, the NYR win the stanley cup over the kangs.
updated title to thread
Can we please wait more than one game before starting threads about how much better the Rangers are than opponents? They won the first games against Ottawa and Washington, and we all know neither was an easy series. This is quite premature. It's a seven game series, not one.
If team A can beat B and B can beat C it doesn't necessarily mean A can then beat C. What's so hard about this notion for people to understand? As a NYR fan I believe if we played the Penguins in round one they would have beaten us and we would all be talking about how the NYR choked.
