We won’t bore you with the mundane details that filled most of Day Four of IPB’s Great Hockey Road Trip ’07 — Schnookie beat Pookie in Boggle but Pookie evened the score winning 2 out of 3 hotly contested Chinese Checkers matches — and skip straight to the nutmeats: Devils 5, Penguins 4. We began the evening by showing remarkable restraint, arriving at the arena a mere 10 minutes early, rather than our usual hour or two. Not two minutes went by before we were approached by a Pens fan bringing some good-natured smack:
Pens Fan: We’re going to win toinght!
Schnookie: Oh ho, I don’t think so! The Devils will win!
Pens Fan: Excuse me, but didn’t you lose Scott Gomez to the Rangers?
Crickets: Chirp. Chirp.
Schnookie: Uh, yeah…
Pens Fan: I rest my case!
