Wake Me When It’s Over: Hawks 3, Devils 1


If ever a team could be considered the root marm of the NHL, it is the New Jersey Devils.  There is absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing worth watching about this team. They are bad enough to be on the fringe of the McDavidstakes, but not comically bad enough to be entertaining. Sure they’ve got the Ghost of Jaromir Jagr, but has ceased to be interesting.  The Devils can’t even blame their badness on injuries, because all their injured players are terrible. Bryce Salvador? Ryane Clowe? Cripes.

As the self-appointed spokesmen/woman of the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, we are using the idea of “To the victors go the spoils” quite seriously. What we will do between now and the night the Stanley Cup banner is raised in the United Center is point out the shortcomings of all the teams that won’t have four crisp new banners in their rafters. We continue this series with the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils? Rejects.: Hawks 5, Devils 1

For some reason, Martin Brodeur didn’t cut down the net after this one. I guess it’s because he and his mates were completely outplayed by Cristobal Huet and the Blackhawks. Fans have been wondering why teams seem to always bring their A game for the Blackhawks, well, now you know why. The Devils were tied for the most points in the NHL going into tonight, feature several good young scorers, a Hall of Fame goaltender and an outstanding defense. But New Jersey came out a step slow, and the Blackhawks absolutely buried them.
