CONGRATULATIONS to the Chicago Blackhawks for Winning the 2010 Stanley Cup

The Chicago Blackhawks won in overtime in Game 6 on a sharp-angle Patrick Kane shot to the right corner to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 and to win the series 4-2. Jonathan Toews is the recipient of the Conn Smythe trophy for Playoff MVP. Former Devil John Madden now will get his third Stanley Cup ring, and Marian Hossa smashed a curse to win his first. Chicago was in "win-now" mode, played fantastic hockey at both ends all season, and deservedly won the Stanley Cup over a more fortunate, slightly better Montreal Canadiens-esque team in the Flyers. Congratulations to Chicago and their supporters. UPDATE: Here's a video of the play and the Stanley Cup winning goal by Kane, uploaded by Jefflered. Kane knew it was in and he was so, so right.

Travis Hughes of BSH: Buy some Devils playoff tickets!

For some reason, Travis Hughes wanted to let everyone know that you can still get Devils playoff tickets. It's a bit weird that a Flyers fan wants to let Devils fans know that they can get playoff tickets, but whatever. The Rock making money is money made for the Devils. By the way, feel free to get some deals for Game 3 and Game 4 at StubHub. Keep in mind that you'll have to go to Philly for the game itself. Thanks, Travis! P.S. Never? That word does not mean what you think it means.

1965 SI Article about the Rangers: They stunk...and were also cheap

Big thanks to don in central jersey for bringing up this article. Our Hated Rivals were ran poorly in the 1950s and the 1960s. The ironic aspect is that the owners were incredibly cheap. To me this is a big shock. The Rangers didn't go out and spend big money on free agents every season then - they just raised the ticket prices. Yes, this is the same organization who has been setting the standard of paying too much for inadequate results in recent memory. In an earlier era, they were extremely cheap...and were still bad! It's a great read and another uncomfortable point to raise to a Rangers supporter. Again, thanks don. By the way, feel free to join in the comments why you are a Devils fan.

Devils will finish second, third, or fourth in East

Gulitti already did the work necessary to figure out the Devils' playoff position. The good news is that the Devils are assured of home ice for the first round. Only Philadelphia could catch the Devils for the division, and that's assuming the Devils lose their next three in regulation. New Jersey should keep pushing for second, because I'm liking Rangers or Montreal in the first round instead of Pittsburgh or Carolina.

Fun Facts about Last Night's Win

Tom Gulitti has put together a list of interesting facts about last night's win. (And he has this one from a prior post: Brodeur has only come in for relief 12 times in his career - his first since 1998) Here's the most important one: The Devils clinch the Atlantic with a win tonight and a Flyers loss. Make it happen, Devils! (Oh, and go Sens!)

Quickie Thought: REVENGE IS OURS!

Link goes to the NHL.com recap and what a game that was. Pittsburgh is likely sitting there wondering how could they have missed so many glorious chances (including a WIDE OPEN NET in the second); only to leave the Devils to take advantage in the second half of the game. Sidney Crosby in particular was frustrated by the Devils defense and some bad bounces. You know he is when he's throwing Brian Gionta down and keeping him there with a clinch. Scott Clemmensen was excellent and he's continuing to roll on as the starting goaltender for the Devils. Bryce Salvador picked up 2 assists to go with some steady play. Despite getting hit hard in the face in the third period, he appears to be OK according to Gulitti - which is excellent news. Lastly, I want to say Dainius Zubrus flicking his wrist after scoring his goal from the half-boards was sweet. I need to find a video of that stat. Overall, good performance, great result; bring on hockey's answer to Chelsea FC!
