I am not a huge hockey fan I will admit, but I am always interested when it is a hometown team. It was a series that pinned New Jersey vs. New York. Two states that have some of the most passionate fans in the entire country. Of course, it would not be an East Coast battle without some drama. The Devils jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period, but that lead did not stick around for the entire game. The Rangers came back and tied the game. Overtime… here we come! Within the first two minutes the Devils came up with a huge play when Adam Henrique had a huge goal to win it for New Jersey. The win came on a monumental day for both teams when the Rangers beat the Devils at home in a Game 6 to force a Game 7, fourteen years ago. Yes, Martin Brodeur was there. The Devils try to win their fourth Stanley Cup. They will face the LA Kings. Finally, New Jersey has something to be proud of that does not involve “Real” Housewives or anyone with a nickname, like Snooki.
