Your expected starting goaltenders and their 2008-09 season statlines:
|NJD - Martin Brodeur||31||1814||19||9||3||2||73||2.41||870||797||.916||5|
|CAR - Cam Ward||68||3928||39||23||5||10||160||2.44||1901||1741||.916||6|
One last cautionary note: The winner of this game will not necessarily go on to win the series, the Cup, or a leftover chocolate bunny. The winner of this game, hopefully the Devils, will have won exactly one game. In a series as close as this one, looking ahead and/or taking games for granted is not a wise choice. Disappointment will only occur when the other team takes the unfocused ones to the Learning Tree™.
Feel free to leave any comments you have about tonight's game or the series or either team. Please keep the comments clean and relevant. I will be at The Rock for Games 1 and 2; remaining as the loudest one in Section 1 - likely failing to start a "I'm Devils 'til I die, I'm Devils 'til I die, I know I am, I'm sure I am, I'm Devils 'til I die" chant. Regardless if you're at the Rock or elsewhere, support the Devils as they take their first step on what will hopefully be a long and successful journey.
