Geez, it was a massacre. What a beating! It would be super great for the King's fans if the team can win the cup in front of them in the next game. SC win at home and a four game sweep to boot. Also if so the best playoff record to the cup ever.
You know the Devils will be coming hard, and they are good.
quote:The Devils have had a brilliant run this spring, one hardly anyone expected when the postseason began. They came back to beat the Panthers, clobbered the Flyers and had the oh-so-satisfying victory over the hated Rangers to get here.
Nothing can take that away. But the 4-0 loss Monday night was more than just the better team winning again. The Devils didnt look like they belonged on the same ice with the Kings in the third period.
The Cup is history. Itll take a miracle to win four straight against a team thats won 15 of 17 games this spring. But they can still show a national audience that theyre better than this, because they are better than this, and that has to be the most frustrating part of this now.
The Devils had come so far in this postseason, showing so much grit and toughness along the way. There is no shame in losing the Stanley Cup to a team as good as the Kings. But not like this.
Despite the Kings overall generally shutting them down as they did the previous three teams, (in nine full periods and the time played in two OT periods the Devils have only scored one earned goal), the Devils are still a very good and motivated team so there is hope.
One could analyze their chances in many ways but I think the one single most fact is what are the chances they are going to beat Quick, (maybe the best goalie in the NHL and a 26 year old American to boot), four straight games?
Whatever happens the Devils have played a great season and playoffs and are one of the premier franchises in the NHL.
That was an ugly game. Devils are still missing way to many chances. I have hope still as it seems the Devils have solved Quick. Brodeur will have to play the two best games of his life for the Devils to have a chance and I feel like he is up to the challenge. -- Mets, Cowboys, Devils
If Kings lose this series,it'll haunt them for years and be the ''Choke of the Century''.
Lots of pressure on Monday...........I personally don't want to see a game 7.
I agree, but being that it'll be the first ever Stanley Cup won for the Kings, the hockey gods want it to be extra special and have the Kings win it here at home in the beautiful City of the Los Angeles..:+) -- I work hard. I play hard. I stay hard.
Congratulations to the LA Kings and their Fans for winning the Stanley Cup.
As much as it pains me to say it as i am a Rangers Fan, Congratulations to the Eastern Conference Champion NJ Devils and their ..er..let's see.....1....2.....3.......you can't hold both hands up.......6 Devils Fans for a nice run.
I gave fair warning that i was a Rangers Fan, I am obligated to take a shot when i can.
OK, fine. in all serious now Congratulation to the Eastern Conference Champion NJ Devils on a nice Playoff Run, they did beat the Flyers after all. -- R.I.P. Mike D. 10-12-78 5-30-08
That's not even a scratch for A-Train. He plays so hurt at times it's a wonder he can walk, let alone play the punishing style of hockey he's known for. He's a Russian with heart -- in other words, the opposite of a Semin or Radulov. -- All of us get lost in the darkness, dreamers learn to steer by the stars All of us do time in the gutter, dreamers turn to look at the cars - Peart / Lifeson / Lee Join Team Helix
