I have no particular affinity for the Devils, but I have a hell of a lot of respect for Marty Brodeur.
And while it’s great what the Ducks have done this year, I was most unhappy when they swept the Wings.
Of course, being a Coyotes fan…
And I watched the Braves game during Game 6 too…but I flipped back and forth betwixt the two. I can tear myself away from the Braves for the finals, I reckon!
Go Devils, if for nothing else than to stop the damned Mighty Ducks (and the ensuing media frenzy) from winning the Cup. That’d be a darker point that the glow puck/phosphorescent puck/whatever the hell they called that thing, for crying out loud.
I haven’t watched hockey lately like I did a year ago, but I shall watch this one.
I know you dont want to hear this Tripler, but as a hockey fan i would love to see the Ducks pick up at least one goal early in the third period.
The Ducks really need to come out and hit the Devils hard in their defensive zone… i dont know why they havent been doing that more… it seems like they aren’t being aggressive enough. The better they for-check, the less they have to try to break into the offensive zone cold.
A truely great and entertaining series. The only thing that would have made it better would be if the Devils fans had showed Giguere the credit and respect he deserved when we was given the Conn Smythe, instead of booing him like they did. Everyone knows that the only reason the Ducks were anywhere NEAR the Finals was him, and he clearly deserved that trophy. He deserved to be treated with respect and class… the fact that half of the Devils players were applauding him should tell the fans something.
<Dennis Miller> But thats just my opinion, I could be wrong </Dennis Miller>
It helped that there was only one baseball game…
And call me ace, baby
I only got to see the first two periods, unfortunately, but the Devils did seem to be resoundingly putting it away. You just can’t expect to get away with eight shots a period on Brodeur!
And a well-deserved Conn Smythe for Giguere. Even though he beat the Wings. On the bright side, he also beat the Stars.
