The one who makes the franchise go - and made it go beyond logic Sunday - is the man behind the bench.
You can tell the players know it. They violated hockey tradition and their own instincts after that heart-stopping, last-second Devils goal and the heart-thumping shootout win Sunday. Instead of jumping immediately onto the ice, which is what hockey players do when they are on the bench and something remarkable happens, they stood right where they were. They all had to congratulate coach Ted Nolan.
“That was unexpected,” Nolan said yesterday.

Although he hopes to participate in the playoffs, DiPietro said he first must be able to resume playing hockey in practice without symptoms before he even can take the neuro-psychological test he must pass in order to be cleared to play.
“The test is a few more steps away,” DiPietro told Newsday yesterday. “It’s an interesting process, but there’s a lot of things you need to do and be symptom-free before you go back to take that test. I’ll be doing some stuff on my own [today]. I think it depends on how I feel. It’s definitely a frustrating deal.”
