Well, the 2012 semi-finals are over. If you didn't see it, the New Jersey Devils defeated the Rangers in Game 6, last night.
It was yet another hard fought victory for the grinding Devils. You've got to hand it to the Rangers though, down 2-0 after one only to comeback and tie it up in the second.
The third solved nothing and it was overtime again where Jersey playoff standout, Adam Henrique, potted the series winner a few short minutes in.
And with that, the Devils are off to the finals versus a well primed and rest Kings squad. That should be one hell of a series! For what it's worth, I'm picking the Kings in 6. They just look unbeatable right now.
On that Habs front, GM Marc Bergevin made his first appointment, naming Rick Dudley as his assistant GM. You can read the full press release below, but suffice it to say that the Habs now have three all-world talent evaluators in their ranks (Bergevin, Dudley, and Timmins).
That can only bode well for the future of this franchise.
