The New Jersey Devils Tie Series 1-1

The New Jersey Devils fell to The New York Rangers in game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Last night they took the ice with something to prove, they aren’t going down with out a fight. This series is evenly matched, and it will come down to the death. I say this will be a 7 game series. My gut tells me to call The Devils to take it, however, The Rangers are working hard, King Hank is owning the net, and players like Richards and Boyle are giving the Devils a run for their money. They too won’t go down with out a fight. I am personally rooting for the Rangers, however, I’m getting a bit sick of John Tortorella’s temper tantrums. Someone, please, give the man a pacifier so he’ll shut up. You know they little blurry patches they put over bad words on people’s shirts on TV? They need one of those over his mouth. I’m not Steve Downie, I don’t read lips that well. But I sure can read some of the words he throws out there, and let’s just say that they are words I’d never say as a lady. (Not where my mother could hear me anyway.) Here’s a box score of last night’s game:
