Eastern Conference Finals Game 5 Preview: Devils Looking to Dominate at MSG Tonight

2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Eastern Conference Finals

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Round 3
New Jersey Devils at New York Rangers
8:00 P.M. ET
TV: NBCSN
Radio: WFAN 660AM

Tonight is the night that one team will be one game closer to the Stanley Cup Finals. It’s the pivotal Game 5.  So far in the playoffs, the Devils and Rangers are 1-1 in Game 5’s.  Who will come out victorious tonight?

The Devils completely dominated the Rangers from start to finish in Game 4.  Scoring early on in the 1st period was Bryce Salvador, a defenseman, who has more points in the postseason than he did in the regular season. This is something that the Devils, especially the defense, need to keep doing. Shooting from the point, getting in the face of Henrik Lundqvist, not letting the Rangers block shots and scoring the first goal are some key’s to tonight’s game.

ECF Game 4 Recap: The Captain steps up and MB30 sets another record

2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Eastern Conference Finals

Three stars of the game:

3rd star: Bryce Salvador (1 goal, 1 assist)

2nd star: Martin Brodeur (28 saves)

1st star: Zach Parise (2 goals, 1 assist)

It’s funny what a difference two days can make.  On Saturday afternoon, the Devils played a decent all-around game, but you need to outscore your opponent to win games (at least that’s the only known way to win as far as I know), and the Devils couldn’t beat Henrik Lundqvist on Saturday.  Two days and a few tweaks to the lineup later, the Devils tied the series once again with the Rangers in a strong, 4-1 victory at the Prudential Center in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

(headline by @TheProgramBTR)

Three stars of the game:

3rd star: Bryce Salvador (2 assists, 23:37 ice time)

2nd star: Chris Kreider (Rangers – 1 goal)

1st star: David Clarkson (Game-winning goal, 3 shots)

“Every goal he scores is a game winner.  I hope he can get 7 more.”  Those were the words of Ilya Kovalchuk in his postgame interview at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.  He was referring to David Clarkson’s third period goal that held up as the game-winning goal that tied the Eastern Conference Finals at one game apiece after dropping Game 1 on Monday night.  The Devils got the job done, winning 3-2, and will make the short trip across the Hudson River before Saturday’s Game 3 against the Rangers.
