Game 6: The Devils had a great start and led 1-0 in the first period, but the Rangers came roaring back and forced a Game 7. New York won 5-2, and the series is all tied up at 3-3. [Devils NHL]

Lindy Ruff: “What a game to be in. Where would you rather be? Playing at home in front of your fans ... Game 7. It’s something that if you’re a little kid growing up, you’re going to sit there and go, ‘Man, I’d love to play in that game.’” []

Candidates for a breakthrough or two?

Rachel Doerrie: “The Devils are on their way up, the Rangers are in the peak of their contending window, and the Islanders have a brand-new building with the likes of Barzal, Sorokin, Dobson and Horvat to entertain their raucous fan base. Sure, the Islanders didn’t win. But the three rinks in the New York area were among the loudest buildings I’ve heard in the NHL. There is no shortage of stars in this three-way rivalry, no shortage of marketing opportunities or merchandise to be sold, and certainly, no shortage of money in the metropolitan area to make these three teams a key piece of growing the NHL’s bottom line.” [The Hockey News]
