Matvichuk played a phenomenal game...he had a two shift sequence in the second where he saved two goals. Way to step it up!


Also, I think Patrik Elias may be some sort of demigod.

I am watching Rangers in 60 for kicks, and now I know why Rangers fans say how lucky the Devils are. JD is said, "I bet you the puck was in the Devils' zone probably 15 minutes of the 20, 14 minutes of the 20. Yet the Devils play one of those games where they're all back in their zone, they try not to get much, they have Lady Luck on their side with the two goal-posts, no question, and the Rangers made two mistakes and both ended up in the net."

Hey JD, goal-posts do not concern Marty Brodeur. He blocks the space between them.

I am in awe, as are probably the Rangers, with what this team has accomplished. The Devils are a freakin' machine and they don't seem to be running out of gas. Ridiculous.
No. It was an attempted funny by me. I was hoping people were listening to Lou Lamoriello's press conference while viewing this thread. What happened was the first guy got up to ask a question, and his a bunch of feed-back was heard, similar to guitar feed-back, ergo Jimi Hendrix. I had to pick an artist that would likely be well know. I could have gone with the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth or My Bloody Valentine.

Anyone else been slightly impressed with Ken Klee? Maybe it's just because my expectations were so low for him ( ), but I think he's been very solid paired up with Hale.

And, I just hope the Rangers don't goon it up if it looks like we're gonna sweep them. Last thing we need is injuries heading into the next round.

And On that Note: Hale had his first Bad game of the year. Looked very nervous.

Over the Devils last 14 games, the Devils have outscored their opponents 55-24. They have scored the first goal 11 times.

All six defensemen were great again tonight.

I think Klee had two things working against him with some Devils fans, (1) he had some early adjustment problems and (2) the fact that he was traded for Suglobov, to whom some had given "next coming of Elias" status.

Klee has really played well down the stretch and now in the playoffs.

I have the same feeling. It's nice for the Devils to beat their arch-enemies in the fashion that they have.

The other night I kept laughing after seeing Madden's second goal aided by Ozolinsh.

Just to clarify, by "impressed", I meant he hasn't done anything ridiculously stupid. Which he hasn't. And that's really all you can ask for from him.

Sure would be nice for Brodeur to move to second on that list with his 100th victory this year

I'm watching the replay of Hockey Night in NY and finally Matt has the balls to call Stan out on his stupid contrary going against everyone's opinion BS. Sure say the series isn't over, say the last game is the hardest to win, but to come out and say "if the Rangers score in the second it's a completely different game" is just too much. If this was in December sure one bad break for the Devils and they would have fallen apart, but this team is so steady even in the face of adversity I doubt it would have made a big deal.

The Rangers have played alright in this series, the score is not indicative of the play, I'll give them that. But the simple fact is they just don't have the slightest bit of finish on this team. Prucha hasn't been the same since his injury in February, Jagr is playing with one arm (I'm impressed that he's playing at all, completely different player than the one that was in DC), Rucchin can barely walk, and the only guys with jump are Ortmeyer Hollweg and Betts, not the most skilled but I'm impressed with their play. However hard work does not always equal pucks in the net and that's a shame because after the great series in 94 I've been waiting for that atmosphere to come to NJ-NYR.

I am just sick of Stan being Mr. Contrary that's all he seems to be good for. From articles to interviews all he tries to do is piss people off.

Zach Parise played his best game in the NHL tonight. I turned on the game halfway through the second and I was shocked at how well he was seeing the ice and what confidence he showed with the puck. The only sore spot I saw was when he missed that pass to Marshall on a 2 on 1. I figured since he usually plays with Gomez and Gionta he is used to putting a different lead on players and Grant just didn't have the speed to track it down.

Congrats on your first playoff goal, Zach. Here's to many more.

During Game 3, Doc talked about when he returned to the Devils broadcast booth in 1993. He said after the third game, he said something to Peter McNab about it, and McNab asked, "You're just getting that now?"

I don't think you can overstate the importance of how the Devils scored that first goal so early on in the game. Took the home team fans right out of it from the get go.

68 seconds! I love that. I wish that I was in charge of the back-page sports covers for the New York Post. I would put a giant "68" headline with a subheadline of "that's how long it took for Langenbrunner to put the Devils up for good" beneath it.

Yeah know, I was always of the opinion that Jagr had no "heart".

That guy showed so much of it yesterday. I have a new found respect Jagr.

You certainly don't want injuries, you don't want the feeling us Rangers fan have had for the last 8 games of the year.

Or even better, "68" "that's how long it took Ozo to end the game for the Rangers"

I was in the same boat when the Rangers traded for him but after watching him for a full year, it's unbelievable how much heart this guy really has. He just wants to win at all costs.
