Game 1 was a thoroughly disappointing affair for the Devils, who had a putrid power play, did little to challenge Igor Shesterkin and were saved from being shut out only by a brilliant penalty shot goal from Jack Hughes. Rangers claimed a 5-1 win on Tuesday night. [Devils NHL]

Nerves, jitters, whatever it is, hopefully it’s out of the system.

Mark Lazerus: “Newborn fawns look more composed than these guys did in the first period. By the time the Devils settled down — and even took control of the game for significant stretches — it was too late. The Rangers sat back and blocked seemingly every puck the Devils could throw at them, content to basically execute a 40-minute penalty kill.” [The Athletic ($)]

Great piece from Dawson Mercer in The Players’ Tribune here ahead of the playoffs: “I know what we have here. You know what we have here. This feels like the start of something special.” [The Players’ Tribune]
