Not much to divert from what Derek said. I only saw the third period, as my crazy swinging drinking teenage lifestyle (Read: Mock Trial) continued.
I'll agree, from what I saw, a fantastic game. I feel like the Devils proved they can keep themselves in a high-scoring game. Great goal by Madden in regularion, then Hossa in the Shootout.
A playoff series, particularly late-rounded, would be insane. Imagine Holik in the Swamp for a Conference Finals?
It'd probably go to the Devils in 6, but be a preamble to the Thrashers winning the Cup in 2008, similar to NJ's victory of the Lightning in 2003.
