Quickie – Playoff Game vs Bruins

It resulted in a loss, but the Devils held up very well against the best team in the East, only allowing one goal, and that goal came on the heels of a Bruins power play.

Yes, two goals were scored by Boston; the second goals was an empty net goal after the Devils pulled Scott Clemmensen near the end of the third.

The Devils had the most difficulty setting up in the Boston zone. Their normal game of dumping the puck in and then going after it didn’t work, and their attempts at passing the puck in was well covered by Boston defensemen.

The game was played so tight, and so carefully, it looked like this was Game 1 of a playoff series between the two teams.  I’d give the Devils an A for effort.
