Devils Beat Rangers in OT posted by Richard Kagan
New Jersey beat the NY Rangers in game 6 in OT to oust the Rangers from the Eastern Conference Finals. I live in NY and follow hockey and admit I was rooting for the Devils to prevail 3-2. They did when rookie Adam Henrique scored early in OT to send New Jersey in the Finals, the fourth with Martin Brodeur as goalie. Brodeur is on his way to the Hall of Fame when his career ends, and it is fitting that he reaches the Finals to try to go out on top.
