Devils: 2003 Stanley Cup Finals Primer
The MantaRay Devil report May 25, 2003
(From the swamps of Jersey)
To many hockey fans around the league, the unofficial Stanley Cup final was played last week when the Devils defeated the best team in the NHL in the Ottawa Senators.
Here is a breakdown of how the Devils match-up against The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim:
Mike Milbury has been interviewing the players from this seasons team and has met with Peter Laviolette several times with regards to the poor performance the team had down the stretch and in the playoffs. It appears many of the players are looking at Laviolette as a big reason the team did not succeed.
WELL, they tried; but give the Ottawa Senators credit: they had, hands down, their greatest season ever and could promise to do even more damage next spring. Yes, it is very disappointing for Canadians to have sit through a record ninth straight year without a Canadian team in the Stanley Cup Finals, but, despite all the disappointment, there’s probably never been a better year than this in recent memory for Canadians to get excited about the Cup Finals, since these Finals are very Canadian in spirit.
Game seven is coming and without a doubt Brodeur has been amazing all season and all through the playoffs. But His game 6 loss might lead to his break down in this playoff series.
According to reports from ESPN Brodeur learned after game 5 that his wife had filed Divorce papers. He was not aware they were filed.
Igor Grigorenko, the Detroit Red Wings’ top prospect, is battling for his life in a hospital in his hometown of Togliatti.
