2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Conference Finals Predictions
(1) New York Rangers vs. (6) New Jersey Devils
Matteau, Matteau, Matteau as the Rangers were able to edge the Devils then and they later won their first Stanley Cup since 1940. And what did the Devils do after that heartbreak? They've won three Cups since to New York's zero. I think the key for the Devils will be if the now forty-year old Marty Brodeur can hold up and I think he can because the Rangers' offense really has not been that good this postseason as they helped make Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson and Washington goalie Braden Holtby look tremendous as their lack of offense caused both series to go to seven games. New Jersey's offense is good enough and has the starpower to get past the great Rangers defense and their elite netminder in "King" Henrik Lundqvist. This will be a great series, nonetheless.
