It was a bit of a rough ride for the Devils this afternoon as they ran into the red hot Penguins in New Jersey. A 5-2 final is usually nothing to be particularly excited about and the game itself was kind of dull, but there were some gems for highlight junkies such as myself, including a wicked save from Martin Brodeur on Sid the Kid.
With Crosby streaking in on him – seriously, watch how he flies – a lot of things could have gone wrong for Marty. They didn’t necessarily go well, but Brodeur was up to the task after Crosby launched a huge clapper at him, forcing the Devils ‘tender to flash some leather.
Take a look at the save.
Despite the loss, the Devils are still one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference – even if they are fourth in their division – and as things stand they will likely play the Southeast Division winner in the first round of the playoffs barring unforeseen events. With all that in mind…
Do you think the Devils a legitimate Stanley Cup contender?
