Will The Devils Write A New Script?

from Mike Vaccaro of the NY Post,

Afterward, they would recite from the familiar missals and mantras, talk about how they were outhustled and outworked and out-effort-ed, the whole laundry list of self-flagellation that accompanies all of the Rangers’ losses now.

It is possible that the Devils outplayed them, too, but we have come to realize that such concessions around the Rangers are tantamount to refusing to take a loyalty oath. The Senators outworked them three times. The Capitals outhustled them three times. Now the Devils have done it once.

Really, it doesn’t matter if you’re a Ranger this morning: blame yourself. Credit the Devils. Wake up tied, again, 1-1. Take the day off. Go back to work tomorrow. Litter the ice Saturday with bodies, litter those bodies with black-and-blue marks roughly the size of hockey parks.

Rinse. Return. Repeat.

And hope that the Devils, unlike the Senators, unlike the Capitals, aren’t ready to light the script on fire.
