Devils GM Rich Epstein was upset, no make that pissed off after his team lost game two of their opening round series by a score of 6-2. After ripping apart just about every player on his team, Mr. Epstein saved his strongest comments for the officials. "How the explitive deleted does our team get called for 6 penalties to their none? We were friggin up after the first, then the refs decide that they can't have the Devils winning again, and hand the explitive deleted game to the 'Ning." Mr. Epstein had no problem pointing to the source of the alleged bias "Kinda funny how during the regular season, when an impartial Mr. Niece was in charge of officiating we were the second least penalized team in the league, but now when Sean, our division rival runs the show, we are a bunch of explitive deleted goons." Mr. Epstein was of course referring to Mr. Sean Gaffney, who has taken over as supervisor of the officials in order to avoid a conflict of interest on Mr. Niece's part, while his Detroit Red Wings remain in the playoffs. Why would Mr. Gaffney put his integrity on the line just to hurt the Devils? According to Mr. Epstein "It's obvious. He's jealous. Two straight years we have run away with the division while the Rags have been a lottery team. He can't handle the fact that we are just a better organization. Well, explitive deleted him. We'll win this series no matter what the refs do. Now if you'll get out of my way, I need to go kick Hasek's explitive deleted"
