The leagues iconic goaltender leads the Devils into a border battle with the southern neighbours in Philadelphia, a town where solid goaltending of late means holding the other team to under six goals a night.
Such is one of the themes to round two with Philly and Jersey, the Flyers clearly have more offensive talent to choose from, going up against a team that still after all these years knows how to shut down an offence.
Something of course will have to give, either the Flyers get frustrated and shut down or possibly the Devils begin to find goals by the bushel full, regardless considering the proximity of the two cities, this is yet another series where familiarity could very well breed contempt.
Game One-- New Jersey 3 at Philadelphia 4 (OT)
Philadelphia leads the series 1 game to 0
