Are the Devils still considered a trap team?

Collapsing in the defensive zone and blocking shots is not the gameplan. Its a last resort when the forecheck is non-existent and the breakout is putrid.
Agreed, no team wants to be in their own end. Rangers would rather be on the forcheck like NJ with quick shifts.

The opposing team attempts shots every game. It sounds pretty simple. The Devils dominated that 2nd period - the Rangers stood their ground, blocked shots, and got a key save or two from Lundqvist.

I dont see many Devils fans admitting their team got smoked in the 3rd period last night. I guess the Rangers blocked their way to 2 goals and an empty netter.
