So are these Finals karma or what? Is this the universe’s way of showing Anaheim how it feels to have your offense shut down?
The Devils have definitely gotten to the Ducks. The Ducks are hardly even shooting the puck now.
It’s also interesting how much a factor Jeff Friesen and Oleg Tverdovsky have been in this series against their former team. The way players move from team to team, it’s pretty rare to see players taking it personally and stepping up to stick it to their old friends the way Friesen and Tverdovsky are.
You also have to be pretty impressed with Martin Brodeur. Two back-to-back Stanley Cup shut-outs? That’s pretty good. But doing it while all of the hockey world is calling you the heir-apparent to Patrick Roy? That’s amazing. Brodeur is pure focus.
