Like Antithesis and Tony, I'm expecting an absolute dog fight that's too close to call before a minute of hockey has been played. The size if the rivalry alone is enough for me to pretty ignore the statistical breakdowns. It's like looking at the Islanders place in the standings during the season and expecting to walk away with easy wins against them. It just doesn't work that way when there is this much history and hatred between 2 teams.
Nervous excitement right now.
OBVIOUSLY, the fanbase with the better GDT dictates the outcome of the game. Duh. and you call yourself a mod...
It's funny...'cause they were true. And I heard that earlier this year, when the Devils honored Sykora playing his 1000th game, he was given a plaque with every team he had played those games with. Although the Rangers were missing from that.
