I have a feeling this is going to be a CRAZY series.

I'm not even that upset by the loss. During the game I felt overwhelmed. There were stretches of the game (especially in the 2nd) that were BRILLIANT from a hockey fan's perspective. Some of the funnest stuff I've seen.

A few things:

First, I couldn't help but keep thinking how much the Devils could have used Elias, and his shot, last night.

Ottawa really came out physical. The Devils need to be able to match that without taking penalties.

That was as bad as I've seen Rafalski look. On the other hand, I thought White and Martin were rock-solid.

There were several shifts that game where I thought Parise and Zajac were the best players on the ice. No exaggeration. Obviously Parise's turned into a 5'11 beast. And Zajac uses his body to protect the puck as well as I've seen in a while for such a young player. He's very strong on his skates and knows how to win loose pucks. That line might be the X-factor of the series.

Marty being Marty? He's been pretty inconsistent so far in the playoffs. But, he'll still be the difference-maker in this series. I can't imagine the Devils will allow 5 goals again in this series. When things settle down, I think the contrast between Marty and Emery will really stand out.

Finally, I have no idea what to expect for the rest of this series. I'll reinterate my belief that it's going to be completely nuts and a lot of fun. Devils/Senators in the playoffs makes for some of my favorite hockey. I wish Game 2 was tonight (although the players definately don't!).

ugh tough luck not being able to run out the clock there... onto OT we go. hopefully they won't blow it. going down 2-0 going to Ottawa would be tough.

Crazy game.

Not as dominating as I would have liked, but we got the job done.

Now we have to steal one in Ottawa.

Well aware, but we do not win the series if we do not improve our game.

Langenbrunner had an AWFUL game tonight. I couldn't believe that he was the guy to actually score the goal in OT to finish the game off. He was actually lucky that the shot went in. Emery went down, and Langs just tried to push it past him instead of going up...and somehow, it got past him.
