Ryan Carter snapped a tie with 4:24 left, and the New Jersey Devils posted a 5-3 victory over the New York Rangers after blowing a three-goal lead in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday night. The Devils, who led 3-0 before the first period was half over, have a 3-2 edge in the series and can advance to face the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup finals with a win at home on Friday night. If the Rangers can stay alive then, Game 7 would be back in Madison Square Garden on Sunday. The Devils seemed primed for an easy win when Stephen Gionta and Patrik Elias scored within the first 4:13 of the game. Travis Zajac made it 3-0 before the Rangers woke up and began chipping away. Brandon Prust brought New York within 3-1 before the first period was over, and Ryan Callahan made it a one-goal game in the first minute of the second. The Garden really rocked when Marian Gaborik tied it at 3 just 17 seconds into the third with his first goal of the series. But the comeback was all for naught. Carter put the Devils back in front, and Zach Parise sealed it with an empty-net goal in the closing seconds.

Kovalchuk helps out with big hit

One of the NHL's accepted truisms is that Ilya Kovalchuk is a preeminent sniper. The fact he's scored 406 goals in 779 games, including nine consecutive seasons of 30 or more goals, is proof enough that Kovalchuk knows how to put the puck in the back of the net. But the biggest play Kovalchuk made in the Devils' 5-3 win over the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern...

President Carter: 5 goal outing pushes King Henrik to the Edge of his Throne

 The Devils are one win away from a date with the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals. After coming out quick and early, scoring 3 goals within the first 10 minutes of the game, New York "rallied" back, scoring & knotting up the game after 3 un answered goals. Two of the goals, questionable, as well as MANY calls in general, throughout, for BOTH teams. A blatent...

Mike Rupp's 'Sucker Punch' Not Exactly Clean, But Suspension Talk Is Ludicrous (Video)

Mike Rupp isn't on the ice to score goals. He's on the ice to stir the pot. Well, consider the pot stirred. Rupp looked like a man on a mission when he took the ice with the Rangers trailing 3-0 in the third period of Monday's Game 4. He roughed up Steve Bernier at the faceoff circle, dropped Peter Harrold behind the net and gave Anton Volchenkov a decent push. Rupp&...

Zach Parise - Because It's The Cup

Classic Sid - Granlund would look better with Parise

English: Zach Parise (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Duh! I wonder if Sid has even been to a hockey game lately? I always get a kick out of Sid Hartman's writings - although hockey has never been a strong subject for Sid. Of course Parise would look better along side Mikael Granlund and or Mikko Koivu for that matter. There are probably 25-29 teams that are interested in...

Lou Still Has It

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, The franchise may be set to crumble around them but the New Jersey Devils are one win away from their first Stanley Cup final since 2003 because the Lou Lamoriello Way prevailed.
