Devils and Rangers Start Game Off With A Bang

Just two seconds after the puck dropped, Cam Janssen and Eric Boulton of the Devils and Mike Rupp and Brandon Prust decided to put on a show simultaneously for the crowd at Madison Square Garden that night. Both combatants dropped their gloves and decided to duke it out for a little while. The video can be seen here.

“The last time we both squared off like that I was in St. Louis and I got kicked out,” Janssen told Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger. “So I didn’t know what they were going to call with that. They gave us the benefit of the doubt. They knew we both dropped our gloves at the same time. They kind of gave us a break there. I appreciate that. They probably could’ve kicked one of us out.”

“No, I challenged him,” Janssen said. “I said to him, ‘How’s the hand?’ He said, ‘It feels good.’ I said, ‘Want to do it?’ He said yes. Simple as that. That’s what we do.”

About Devil's Advocate

I am an all around NHL fan. I love to watch Atlantic Division, and root for the Philadelphia Flyers. Just because I cheer for the Flyers, doesn’t mean I don’t keep up with the other teams in the division, specifically the New Jersey Devils. Devils Advocate will provide you with the most important Devils news, filled with my opinion about the selected topic.
