I forget who scored the goals, but you got the right team and it
was the Senators.

No maybe. It was Tampa's only playoff season. I guess what I'm
getting at is it's still likely New Jersey can go on a serious roll
and win the conference and the Cup. It's also possible they may not.
I finally forced myself to watch a Devils game yesterday, or watch
it with my back to the television. They did not win and lost to Manny
Lagace, but they still had great chances and did not look out of
place against the team that is running away with the league. My point
is they play this kind of hockey they will win a lot of games.
With that said their winless streak is near double-digits.
