The Devils beat the Philadelphia Flyers in Philadelphia by a score of 7-3! 7-3! The game started off a bit poor for the Devils, but they came back to go ahead in the first period. They dominated the second and third periods. They blow out the Flyers and retain the Atlantic! And how did they do it? Well, a big part of it was:

36 shots on net! Only 7 times were they blocked! Only missing the net 11 times! Out hitting the Flyers 19-13! A killed off 2 man disadvantage late in the first period! And most importantly:


Johnny Oduya was great! He played fantastic and you're going to see his rush deep into the zone with a little dish to Patrik Elias hammering home PPG #4 of the night over and over. His power play goal was a bomb from the point and an instant reply to Daniel Briere's goal early in the game. His three assists were important, fully justifying his position on the power play unit. That's not all. Patrik Elias and his three-point night was great. Travis Zajac and his three assists were great. Zach Parise and his brace was great. Hell, the entire team was great after that first period - and they weren't terrible then either just shaky to start. They successfully made the Flyers pay, made their home crowd rather irate and beside themselves, tied a Devils record for most power play goals in a game, tied their season high in goals this season with 7, and chased out the starting Antero Niittymaki for Martin Biron.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this game a 6.023 x 10^23.


As excited as I am about the big nite for the Devils, I am potentially even more excited for the use of Avogadro's Number in tonight's entry! Sparkling, witty writing, plus the cleverness of insanely large numbers! Bravo John!
