Rooting Against The Devils - it's all we have left

It's really good to see the Devils losing. Even if it is to the Flyers - a team we also don't like - especially after they tossed us out of the playoffs when Olli's shoot out shot was shut out.

But first things first. We outlasted the Islanders in the playoff race - and now we can root for the Devils to go down in 5 games.

The Devils have scored just 4 goals in their 3 losses - and the old man Boucher is outplaying the other old man Brodeur. Anything bad for Marty is good for us - and the chubby aging has let up 12 goals in 4 games. When the Devils can't goal tend, when they can't score, when they get out-worked, well, it gives me what little happiness there is left in this broken season.

So, while Flyer (and former Ranger) Balir Betts looks good to advance to round 2, things are not going so well for former Ranger and current Canadien Scotty Gomez. His Montreal team just can keep up with the Capital's fire power. Washington has scored 17 goals in the last 3 games to take a 3-1 series lead. But - to take the long view - we may need the Caps to take out the hated Penguins later on - so maybe this is for the best.

Sidney's team is also up 3-1, having won 3 straight over the Senators.

And finally - Ryan Miller - who hates the Rangers even if he is a national here - is losing 3-1 to the Bruins.

Tonight we root Ottawa and Philadelphia.

And, hey, sorry I haven’t been around as much lately. With the season ending so abruptly and in such a terrible way – It’s been a little tough to keep up the posts every day. Thanks for checking in.
