08:30 AM ET 05.11 | Believe it or not, there was a time Martin Brodeur played a backup role. [There's] already been a lot of discussion in the area of a possible Devils-Rangers series and their memorable seven-game showdown in the 1994 conference finals. [Brodeur] is the only player still active from that 1994 series, but his postseason history against the Rangers goes back two years earlier than that to a seven-game slugfest between the rivals in the 1992 Patrick Division Semifinals. ... It was during that series that Brodeur first learned to dislike the rivals from across the Hudson. "I was part of the whole seven games," Brodeur said. "I was on the bench. I was in the locker room. I got to hate the Rangers early on, got the taste of it."

Nice one. Pssst. Don't tell the Devils that there is a game 7.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, stop the clock. Caps need to weather the storm of the first 10 minutes of that game first before they can think about the next round.

" I got to hate the Rangers early on, got the taste of it."

That's a shame because The Raners and the MSG fans are so fond of him.

Too bad we have to wait until tomorrow evening for game 7 Slappy.

True that. I hope it's another good one. 13 games so far, 12 by one goal and, what, 6 in OT? Apparently my heart is in better shape than I thought. I agree with your post 14 btw. Enjoy your reign until the buzzer sounds on the final game of the Cup Final!
