Series: 3-1 Devils


Projected starting goaltenders:

NJD-    Martin Brodeur (Playoff stats: 7-3, 2.15 GAA)

PHI-    Ilya Bryzgalov (Playoff stats: 5-5, 3.49 GAA)

Game thoughts:

Tonight, the New Jersey Devils will try to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2003. And like 2003, they will try to capture the Stanley Cup. However, they face the tough task of trying to eliminate the Flyers on home ice. 


The Flyers have been spurned by the Devils' aggressive style of play and need to counter with elevated play of their own. But they will need to do so without offensive leader Claude Giroux, who was suspended for his questionable hit on Dainius Zubrus. Can the Flyers hold off elimination and force a Game 6? This game could go either way. 
Prediction: Devils 2, Flyers 1 (OT)
