Absolutely vital to play a sound game from the beginning. The more time the Devils go without scoring the more Henrik and the shot blocking will be in their heads. I don't care how disciplined they were vs Philly, the frustration they would have in the 2nd intermission staring at another goosegg on the scoreboard would be a different heavier animal.
First playoff game ever for me tonight. Got the tickets for free through a friend. Good news: in the 7 regular season games I went to the Rangers were 6-0-1 with the 1 OTL coming in the Anisimov "sniper" game against TB.
