Czeched Out

I'm happy to have been wrong. Despite the Rangers administrative changes, there was nothing even resembling the team that accumulated 100 points and was 18 games over .500 on the year to keep the Devils from winning their 15th in a row.

Our long-standing Czech, who missed half the season, was fresh, while their seven ranged from oops
Brian Gionta scored 4:30 into the third period with the Devils' third short-handed goal of the series after a terrible turnover by Petr Sykora, and Elias ripped in his fifth of the series, with 6:39 left to make it 4-1.

to not lasting a minute
[T]hings got much worse [for the Rangers] just 53 seconds in when team scoring leader Jaromir Jagr aggravated his injured left shoulder and was forced out of the game.

Giving up only four goals in four games to a team that averaged over three goals a game during the regular season leaves me cautiously optimistic about playing the winner of Philadelphia/Buffalo, and arguably beyond.
