I fully expect the Devils to be much, much, much better tonight, and obviously more desperate. And it will be up to the Rangers to be much, much, much better and try to match that desperation.
But as I’ve said, I expect this series to be 1-1 after two … only because most series between teams that are pretty even are 1-1 after two, and because there is no such thing as home-ice advantage in the playoffs. In fact, I truly believe it’s easier to be the road team, especially early in a series.
No changes for ya boys. Devils probably will move future Ranger Zach Parise up to Kovalchuk’s line, and insert D Peter Harrold in place of Adam Larsson.
Let’s Go Tony!
