Each series had an insane urgency for different reasons. Now that we're through the other side of the tunnel though, it's exactly as you said. It's a 'wow, we're in the Finals?!' feeling. Instead of stress, now I have excitement. Instead of a dread about losing, I'm thinking about how we can win.
I knew our path to possibly winning was through a division winner and our rivals. The reason why I said that I wanted 6 seed so we play a gassed f'ers team after that dogfight and wanted the rags in ECF with their two 7 game series and multiple OT.

Now I will Take a 12-2 team, because this team historically has answered the bell. Anaheim was scarier prospect than LA is now. LA only has 1 sweep; Anaheim had 2. Not to mention their hot goalie...jiggy ended with a 1.62GAA and Marty 1.65.

Chere can go **** himself with his kings prediction.

So I'm in a position where I can't really call off of work. My two options right now seem to be 1. quit or 2. miss at least games 1-3. This sucks so much, but they do have a damn good record when I'm at work so maybe it won't be all bad...

LGD!

Don't forget boys and girls, watch for illegal curves on LA's sticks. Marty McSorley sorely lost in 93 trying to gain that advantage.

We must have a stick measured if it looks questionable. The stick was the turning point against Montreal and demers shoved it up mcsorley's ass when he pulled Roy and overtime was forced.

To this day, it stands as the only stick measurement I remember being done in the finals.

You don't want to play this game. Kovys stick is 100% illegal, and I'm sure many others are on both sides. It's kind of a taboo thing to call for IMO.

Go out and seize the first game, Devils. Show the Kings that they are not juggernauts, and they will have no easy time winning the Cup from us.

What? The rules on the curve of the stick was relaxed in the last few years. I really don't think Kovy's sticks are illegal - and certainly not the ones I've seen. The ones I've gotten a hold of for various purposes (including game used) haven't been modified from the factory, and you can be damn well sure that an NHL approved manufacturer isn't going to risk losing their approval on an illegal stick for one player.

And why would what the Kings did nearly 2 decades ago have ANY bearing on what the team is doing now?

not sure if serious...

Stick curve limit was raised from 1/2" to 3/4" years ago. You would have to see a straight up banana curve to exceed that.

I'm with brit - this still hasn't sunk yet. Feels like a regular day in 9-5ville.

It'll probably hit me when I get down to Newark.

Wow a SCF game. It's probably the norm for Devils fans now. I would be sick to my stomach right now.
