"And some of us even scored twice!" Brian Rolston(notes) squealed, unable to contain his delight over having matched the goal total of league-renowned sniper Dan Carcillo.
The essence of Carcillo still sat in the back of the minds of these men, eating away at their brains. They simply couldn't erase the image of his mustache-encrusted face yelping for joy at the end of overtime just a few days earlier. Many still held the fear that their women would be mesmerized by The Carcillo, and that he would draw away from the Devils and towards Him like a magnet, never to return.
"It's just unfair we had to face that ringer Brian Boucher(notes)," Dainius Zubrus(notes) added. "There should be rules against a team using more than one goalie during a season. We lost to three different Flyers goalies this year, and yet on our side, I can't remember anybody but Brodeur ever starting even one game for us this season."
Yann Denis hailed a cab.
"If only we had gotten to play against their sixth-stringer, that Jeremy Duschene kid," added the dimpled and dreamy Zach Parise(notes). "Then maybe we would have been able to at least make it a six-game series. That would have doubled Ilya's career playoff win total, too."
