this game kind of gets me scared i dont want the rangers to change their game plan and i think they will. i want them to play defensively.. dubinsky really helped the rangers fore check.
was it just that devils needed to find there game? or were the rangers that good?
Both. When the Rangers decide to stop playing their defensive shell game, they do have a decent forecheck. But the Devils relaxed too much after jumping out to an early lead in the last game. If the Devils play their game tonight, I think they will win, no matter how the Rangers change their strategy.
“Great moments are born from great opportunity.
And that’s what you have here tonight, boys.
That’s what you’ve earned here, tonight.
If we played ‘em ten times, they might win nine.
But not this game. Not tonight.
Tonight, we skate with ‘em.
Tonight, we stay with ‘em, and we shut them down because we can!
Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world.
You were born to be hockey players—every one of ya.
And you were meant to be here tonight.
This is your time.
Their time—is done. It’s over.
I’m sick and tired of hearin’ about what a great hockey team the Rangers have. Screw ‘em!
This is your time!! Go and take it”
Most of that(except the Rags part) was from Herb Brooks. It certainly applies to the Devils tonight. GET IT DONE NOW!!!
