from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,
The Devils know exactly what they will face when they open their second-round playoff series against the Flyers Sunday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center.
“We know the kind of game they want to play and you can’t fall into that trap,” coach Pete DeBoer said today before a bus ride down the New Jersey Turnpike. “Pittsburgh did and they’re at home watching.”
The Flyers eliminated the Penguins in six games, provoking and then punishing Sidney Crosby and his teammates by scoring 12 power play goals.
“They got rattled,” Patrik Elias said. “They got out of their element with all the stuff going on—fighting, cheap shots behind the play, all the vocal stuff and off-the-ice stuff.
“Good coaches like Larry Robinson and Jacques Lemaire always told us don’t give them any reasons to use something against you, whether it’s words or any kind of a moment on or off the ice.”
