Game 5: Devils 3 - Rangers 5
I have nothing left to say for now. IPB may something to say. 2 Man Advantage basically sums up the 2008 Playoff Run. I'm sure Tom Gulitti will have plenty to report on. But me? Nothing else. I'm sorry, but what can I say?
Isn't it amazing that we can all have our hearts broken and the first thought is, "When do I get to see them again?" Ah, the life of a sports fan.
Well, another season has come and gone. Thanks for doing such a great job blogging about this team, John! From statbits to tra-la-la-feelings-bits, ILWT makes the Devils season more fun and interesting to follow.
It's funny. I feel just the opposite.
I think I missed tops 4 games on TV this season, by far the most I've ever watched in one year (thanks DVR!). This has easily been the most frustrating Devils team I've ever seen (since 1991 when I started following them). I'm a fan through and through, but I just couldn’t stand to watch them anymore and I'm kind of relieved this Devils team has been put out of its misery.
When they were on top of their game, they were great. But more often than not, they'd play sound hockey for only a fraction of a game. That just won't work, and it didn't in the end.
Anyway, your posts were great this season. There were a number of times that you put some real analytical thought into what you produced and I for one appreciate it. Enjoy the off-season.
thanks for writing a great blog and covering the Devils all season. Hopefully you can do some coverage in the off season as well. As for the Devils, they need to make some changes, no doubt about that. Hopefully sign a star center or defenseman, or both.
I'm going to say something unpopular here: I have no ill will against the Rangers and hope they go far in the playoffs. After all, if you lose, you may as well lose to the champs. Besides, I'd love to see Scotty Gomez succeed.
Thanks again, John.
