Yeah, we know. We have to play them eight times. Let’s just get this over with, shall we?
19:26 The Jagr and Madden lines finish the first shift of the game. It was entirely in the Devils zone. We got up from our naps for this?
18:06 Chico: “There’s a lot of excitement in this building, and in [Henrik Lundqvist]’s body.” The residents of stately IPB Manor: “[Shudder]”
16:31 As the Devils do an uninspiring job of mounting some kind of breakout, Doc tells us that it’s impossible not to be excited tonight, just from the sheer anticipation of the awesomeness of this matchup. The season series is 4-0 Rangers, the Devils have 3 goals against them total, and these two teams have played 26 times in the last two and a half seasons. We are not excited.
16:00 What a surprise. We are ever so delighted that Marty has brought as much game tonight as we have. Dubinsky beats him from the faceoff dot, on a fast shot through Mottau. 1-0 Rangers.
