Posted - 05/23/2012 : 10:40:42 I still say the Rangers.
The Devils have been resilient, and Brodeur has probably been even better than expected; but when the chips are down and their backs are against the wall . . . this Rangers team can play a super-tight, extremely good game.
And in those games, Lundqvist will make that great save that eludes Brodeur, and Parise won't be able to fight through suffocating defence like Brad Richards will at times. And the clincher for me, is that Kovalchuk is definitely playing hurt, and is less of a gamebreaker here.
Rangers, maybe in 7 again, but . . . I still feel they will prevail like they have before in every MUST win.

Posted - 05/23/2012 : 07:16:15 Rangers eeked out victories over both of their round 1 and 2 opponents. They're lucky to even still be here. They've also been outplayed for the majority of the games against NJ, so I think it's something like a 60-40 chance that NJ goes ahead.
Yeah, Lundy is a better goalie but NJ has shown they know how to solve him and it's not like Brodeur's bad. He's always been a big game goalie. He's also got more points than a third of the remaining players... lol.
