You’re down one game and they have home-ice advantage,” Devils coach Pete DeBoer said. “We’ve been in this spot before. We know we can play better and credit to them. They got the job done, found a way to get a win. Now it’s on us to respond the right way.
We just didn’t play well enough for a long enough period of time and that was a big difference. But we feel really comfortable with the way we played. I think we still have to be much better, and we will be. I don’t think we played nearly as good as we’re capable of playing. And so we’ll have to make sure we do that tonight.
I thought we played good," goaltender Martin Brodeur. "We had our chances as far as getting puck control in their zone. We just couldn't get the puck through. They blocked a lot of shots. That's the way they like to play, and that's kind of the way they've been successful so far all year in the playoffs. We have to find a way to break through that.
One shift at a time, one period at a time, one game at a time, GET IT DONE!
LET'S GO DEVILS!!!

Devils really need this win. It's not only about avoiding going down 2-0, it's also about them getting a win in the Garden and beating Lundvist who I believe is in their heads and has been for the last several years. And why all this complaining about how the Rangers play? I also find it boring and frustrating.
However, the Rangers have been playing this way all season long and play within the rules. There has been some talk by GM's about changing the rules regarding shot-blocking, but that's possibibly in the future, not now. And the Rangers also seem to score when they have to.
Excuses are for losers. Lou Lamoriello quote.
