NHL Eastern Conference Final: Devils Look To Wrap It Up At The Rock

Devils Look For First Cup Final Appearance Since 2003

There’s a Cup carrot dangling in front of them, on their own home ice, as New Jersey aims to get the Eastern Conference Final series over in six games. They certainly don’t want to travel back across the Hudson River for a Game Seven in Manhattan. Flying under the radar for most of the season (35-23-4 heading into March) the Devils true colors have shone through in the playoffs. They have certainly opened our eyes!

Apart from an age difference of 14 years in the nets, there isn’t much that separates the Devils from the Kings. They are both solid defensively, they don’t whither away in tight checking contests, and they can roll four lines that can score during any shift. Until this Rangers series, we didn’t realize how good the Devils were. While NJ vs. LA doesn’t have the same ring as NY vs. LA does, a Devils win tonight sets up a fantastic Cup Final.

Rangers Look To Wrangle The East Final Back To The Big Apple

Despite being down 3-2 in the series, the Rangers have given the Devils all they can handle. The 5-3 Game 5 final score (NJ had an empty net goal) does not dictate the play as New York out-shot New Jersey 28-17 in the loss. The main difference being – Marty was Marty and King Henry was a no-show in the first period as the Devils jumped out to a 3-0 lead prior to the ten-minute mark. Going down early would spell doom tonight.

If the Rangers stand any chance of moving this series back to Madison Square Garden they are going to need a huge effort from Lundqvist in net tonight. New York will also need to get up early to avoid the “Jersey Trap” while erasing the enemy ice advantage at the Rock. Back on Wednesday we figured the Broadway Blueshirts would be looking to wrap up the series tonight  – instead they are fighting for their playoff lives.

New Jersey is the better of the two teams  and have more experience across the board. As such we’ll be looking for an empty netter late as we’ll give the pucks (1½ +265 puck betting line at Bovada) and back the Devils to advance to the Stanley Cup Final.
