Devils 3, Rangers 0 (Game Three, New Jersey leads 3-0)
If nothing else, I think we’ve firmly established that Jaromir Jagr isn’t Willis Reed. I think we’re also close to establishing — sorry to all the folks in recovery who are still allowed to read this — that Sandis Ozolinsh is out of his depth in this series.
Ward had 27 saves in the ‘Canes’ 2-1 OT win at Montreal, one of ’em on a tremendous stop of a Frances Bouillon breakaway in the 2nd period. Without such heroics, the Habs would hold a commanding 3-0 lead.
7 power plays tonight for the Avalanche, and just one goal to show for it (Joe Sakic in the first period). Dallas is leading 3-2 with 2 minutes left. Even worse, Kenyon Martin was seen cursing at Joel Quenneville.
