This team, has been a thorn in the Devils side since 2001. Even though we beat them, they forced six after jumped out to a 3-0 series lead. They are pesky and will look to create more havoc.

Plus, they force youngsters to suck their dicks in the audience. So, lets get that point, or two, and clinch a playoff spot. It's time to lock up that sixth seed.

I guess the lines are:

Parise-Zajac-Kovalchuk
Sykora-Elias-Zubrus
Ponikarovsky-Henrique-Clarkson
Carter-Josefson-Bernier

Volchenkov-Harrold
Salvador-Zidlicky
Greene-Fayne

Brodeur will start

Florida has one line. You shut that line down and they are nothing. We also have Zajac back.

You've been fooled if you think that. They just haven't been healthy for long stretches of time. They have pretty decent depth now that they are healthy. Samuelsson, Wolski, Goc, Kopecky, and Bergenheim have all been playing well lately. And their D is deadly top to bottom offensively.

And we were 2-2 against them, and one of those losses we got off to a big lead. We've played well against them in spurts, and not so well against them in spurts.

And remember that 3 of the 4 games against FLA was when they were playing really well to start the season.

Exactly, the other choices are total poison. The one advantage this team has over others is the ability to take advantage of sloppy messes. Well, Boston doesn't allow sloppy messes and Pittsburgh has decided to adopt our style. Who's your money on in a slopfest between those two teams. :laugh:

Yep, it's our Stanley Cup final, haven't won a playoff series in 5 years. If you get handed that and can't win, it's time to fold up shop. After that, barring a wipeout, it's gonna get deep fast. So they gotta get that one, get it as quickly as possible and hope everyone else gets maimed.

all you get out of Florida this year is that they got off to a good start in a brutal division, where the best team made an odd choice early in the season that hampered them. then they limped home by extending every game they possibly could. you don't get half a win for extending games in the playoffs. of course, the counter argument is that you can't win playoff games in the SO after blowing leads, but I'll put my chips on the line against them, instead of getting destroyed by the Pens in 5.

In the playoffs, speed isn't a tremendous factor as it is in the regular season. The 2011 Bruins, and 2008, 2009 Red Wings are proof of that.

So can Parise and Kovalchuk. The Devils have tremendous passers too, it just hasn't shown in the last little bit. But Zidlicky, Elias, Kovalchuk, Zajac are all tremendous assist men.

The speed factor is a bit overrated for me. Having Zajac back creates such a ripple effect through the entire lineup.

And as Getzo said the Wings can move the puck like no other team. They overcome their lack of speed with pure skill.
