Devils Defeat Rangers, Head To Stanley Cup Finals!

Yeah, I’m a bit pumped today

( The City of Angels is about to get a June visit from the Devils.

And the $100 million superstar whom the Los Angeles Kings were unable to sign two summers ago has issued a warning: Anything less than a Stanley Cup championship is unacceptable.

“It will be the worst if we lose. I don’t even want to think about it,” said Ilya Kovalchuk, who chose the Devils over the Kings when he was a free agent in 2010. “I think we can get the job done.

“We’re in the Stanley Cup Finals for a reason. (The Kings) have been really good on the road the whole playoffs, but I don’t think they’ve faced a team like us.”

The Rangers would have to agree.

Ignoring the ghosts of 1994, when they lost the final two games of the Eastern Conference finals to their bitter rivals, the Devils booked a spot in the final round Friday night when rookie Adam Henrique scored after 1:03 of overtime for a 3-2 victory over the Rangers in Game 6 at the Prudential Center.

Game 1 is on Wednesday at 8pm in NJ. It’s simply amazing to me how far this team has come after the early collapse in the 2010-2011 season. They came back, and almost made the Playoffs. Now, a team which I figured was good to make it through the first round and bow out in the second is just 4 wins away from their 4th Lord Stanley’s Cup.

It’s hard to do, being a Devils fan, but, have to give credit to the Rangers for a tremendous series. They played hard, and they shouldn’t feel bad after what was a great season for them.

Adam Henrique, the final hero for the Devils in this series, did what ever player is supposed to do: keep his stick on the ice.

    See. Another reason why we still need the Christian religion in America.

    If a group of Devils can go around and beat up a good strong dedicated group of Texas Rangers, then there is still lots of work to do.

    huh? … … what?
