DeBoer is hilarious. His humor and ability to be a smart ass are incredibly understated.

Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice
DeBoer on adult film actress planning to attend again Monday. "We won last time she was there, so I'll buy here ticket if we do that again."

He's quick witted and always has that nice little drop of sass to add in to his pressers.

That's why I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't win.

Difference being the excuse given for Giguere winning the Smythe was there were no other legit candidates from the Ducks while the Devils had five or six legitimate candidates.

This year you could make the case that yes, Quick is the front-runner but you could also give it to Doughty or Brown, maybe even Kopitar. For the Devils, is there really another choice at this point? You can give me Kovy's numbers or Sal's magic stick but our choice would clearly be Marty.

Boy if that did happen though, I don't care who calls me classless I'd boo the media to the high heavens if we pulled the greatest comeback of all time with Marty beating Lundqvist and Quick back to back, and Quick still got the Smythe anyway.

I don't know how the voting works, and while Marty would be a frontrunner, I think Sal is attracting a lot of attention.

I really don't care either way to be honest. A Conn Smythe is nice, but I'd rather the Cup.

Plus in this particular case, with the Kings being up 3-0, if we happen to win this series, I would get so much satisfaction watching Quick hoist the trophy.

Here are all the videos from the Devils PR account

This is NHL.com's link for DeBoer's post game - the other interviews should be listed below.

Maybe the boys will run into Fletch while they are out in L.A. I remember he wasn't much of a Tommy Lasorda fan.

If this were any other year, I might worry about this.
But after last season, this season and this crazy run to where the team is at right now... I cannot muster up enough ***** to give about the Conn Smythe.

Two more victories are all I am concerned with at the moment.

Two guys that I would like to score tomorrow night are Ponikarovsky who only has that one overtime goal against the Flyers. He is due for one. I would also like Zubrus to net one. Hopefully a 4-2 win with Parise scoring another and Kovy with another empty netter.

While watching the replay of last night's game today I saw a stat that the team that scores 1st in a Stanley Cup Final game has won 17 straight games! Isn't that a streak thats about to end? Maybe the Kings go ahead tomorrow and get all giddy but we bear down and comeback to win.

If we win tomorrow wouldn't all the pressure shift to the Devils? Home ice., and not winning after tying the series 3-3 could be added pressure. Maybe Quick would steal a game 7, but historically home teams do very well in Stanley Cup Final Game Sevens.

By the way CBC is much better than NBC's coverage. I love the glimpses of Lombardi and Lamoriello. I was at the game last night and noticed today that CBC had a closeup of Volchenkov's swollen lip. I don't think NBC showed that.

lol if they gave him the Smythe he'd have to accept it via the jumbotron. They vote on the Smythe just before the game ends, not enough time for him to hop the bus (or take a plane if he lives outside of Philly) and get to the arena.

Think of him in that suit he was wearing after game 5 when he was suspended. I think of him on the jumbotron, and start to piss myself!

No way, the pressure is all on the Kings now, and it will stay that way even if we force Game 7.

Which king was trash talking Elias for not getting up after he was hit?

Lost respect for whoever did that.

No idea, but the worse one was Richards/whoever it was calling Volchenkov a "****ing p***y" for allegedly faking an injury on a play where a) he got him with the stick in the face and b) he was bleeding.

Brown, Richards and Carter I didn't respect before this series anyway, so whatever. What pisses me off is that I kinda liked Quick's style coming into the series and now he looks like a suckerpunching and overall dirty *******.

Is it me or does Quick ***** at the referee every time a goal is scored against him?

Especially after the Elias goal. He came into contact with Elias a couple seconds before the goal was scored. He wasn't impeded from making the save. Their bodies touched that's all.

I did enjoy Elias chirping back "Since when did you become a tough guy" The hate is starting to flow.

Frustrated and playing dirty, could only help us. That's the focus draining (see Pittsburgh)

Tomorrow night will be make or break for either team. Up to this point, we've been playing to survive; now we have something to play for...game 7 and the chance to...

The 4th line producing in the playoffs feels like the hockey gods are smiling at us for our "irrelevant signing" meme.

If we win, the below is post of the year.
