Already calling our demise before the nhl website has the series up?

"Let's go home babyyyyy"
I hate to gang up on DD here, as I consider him a friend of mine on the forum, but one really tough miss he had was that we'd finish with 12-14 fewer points than the Rangers back in November.
I don't think the Devils will win, but I can see them stealing a couple of games. I think they are going to get some rush scoring chances vs. Tampa (they will give them up as well). Against Boston it would be more of a cycle game, which isn't our strong suit.
Playoff hockey in Florida !!!
For us though, not the Panthers.
Says the guy who picked against the Devils like 90% of the time in the predict the score thread...
This is my issue. We were thoroughly outplayed by Tampa in each meeting. Let's just hope we didn't use up all of our bounces, including Lack's unicorn performance. They're a deeper and better version of us with deadly special teams. I'll be praying for a miracle.
What a Great night....for me.
Tampa is a better match up in the sense that the Devils HAVE beaten them(though it was a struggle) before.
Boston would've been in the Devils heads all series long with how much Rask would've shut them down.
Vasilevsky? I think we'll see Hall get his first ever NHL Playoff Goal this series(as well as Nico).
Keep doubting this team.
I'd probably still be mad at MacLean and Langenbrunner if that happened.
Oh? We know who our opponent is? LETS GO!
Tampa will lockdown on Hall. I don't think we can keep up with them with Hall under control. Zacha has to have the series of his life for us to win.
Then I suppose you'll be watching Baseball then since you know the result of the series.
Devils in 7.
We must have watched different games because the Devils game Tampa all it could handle. I know you watched at least 1 different game because they only played 3 times this season.
Devils vs everyone. Including their own fans
Perhaps a simple and honest typo, but that was my first thought too.
We looked pretty decent against them, outside of that game in Tampa where Eddie Lack played. We were dead even with them in the game we won in a shootout in October. We were on the right end of atrocious goaltending from Budaj, but it was evenly played. It was one of our better games in October, where we weren't outshot by a whole bunch, which happened a lot in October and November. We looked pretty good against them last time. Score effects and a lot of Greene/Vatanen tilted things in the 3rd period, but we had a pretty good game against them recently.
I didn't notice that. @Tundra just exposed himself there.
I'll watch regardless, but matchups are matchups. Pens and bruins were very beatable. Tampa has the d to break our forecheck. Plus, their scoring depth can grind us up.
In all fairness, no one here is more right than you and me.
We may be wrong at times but we stick our necks out there while others don't or are wrong themselves such as that absurd prediction of Pitts being done.
It's part of what makes following sports fun.
It will be a competitive series at the very least. I don't think we're going down in 4 or 5 games and we definitely have a chance.
Devils were competitive in games 1 and 3 against Tampa. Game 2 we were heavily outplayed but found a way.
Geez, we ended up needing every last one of those points we collected. It didn't feel that close a few days ago.
It will be either Tampa in 6.....
...or Devils in 7.
(or if things break right as far as Puck Luck goes....Devils in 6)
Going to be one hell of a FUN SERIES.
More like 99%, you were not paying attention.
