Postgame

Devils coach Pete DeBoer said after the game that he believes the Devils didn’t deserve to win Game 1.

Katie Strang of ESPN NY tweeted, “Couple of Devils players said they thought that was team’s worst game of playoffs, guys fighting nerves at the start.”

Martin Brodeur said after the game, “The ice was bad, we made turnovers, we panicked w/ the puck…it was a weird game. Not a great game for hockey, that’s for sure.”
