At CBC, Tim Wharnsby lists five storylines for the Rangers and Devils series including hte history between the two teams, the brawling regular seaosn that they have and the presence of General Managers who are both near 70 years old.
On the two teams meeting, Ken Daneyko said on HNL Saturday, “this is the dream matchup. We saw the animosity during the regular season. It’s going to be good tough hockey. They don’t like each other, that is a good thing and it will be a good series.”
Dave Maloney said that the key to this series for the Rangers is the same as all the other series: “can they find a goal when they need it.”
Ron Duguay said that with players like Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise, the Rangers need to stay away from bad penalties.
The Rangers won the season series 3-2-1.
