Sometime past midnight Friday, Adam Henrique scored in the second overtime to lift the New Jersey Devils, 3-2, double overtime win past the Florida Panthers in the seventh game of the Eastern Conference opening round playoffs.
After the Rangers won, the winner of New Jersey-Florida would face the Flyers.
I had hoped to parlay the Eagles’ draft party into XFinity Live, but as the Devils played on, the party was just starting, i.e. the music was blasting, so I left.
Anyway, the Rangers play the Capitals and should win that series.
Marty Brodeur, the Devils goalie, had his confidence shaken much of the Panthers’ series, but it could be one game that brings him back.
However, Brodeur is nearing the end of career and eventually the Flyers should solve him.
Figure the Flyers in six games again.
That would set up a Flyers-Rangers Eastern Conference Finals.
The Flyers were 0-6 in regular season play against the Rangers.
The Flyers beat the Penguins so convincingly, Claude Giroux was so good...
