The Devils were able to play extremely well when they needed to against a very hot Ducks team. The penalty kill was really strong and aggressive, giving the Ducks nothing on the power play. Brodeur was playing out of his mind and kept the Devils in the game. The only thing that worried me was the fact that the Devils couldn’t convert on some nice chances but a great overall effort. Alexei Ponikarovsky is fitting in very well, I really want to see him in a Devils’ uniform next season.
