During this stretch of coverage, New Jersey went 2-4. A complete lack of effort once again.
As a result, to be clear, my effort will be minimal here.
Lots of goals are being scored, but defense is rarely visible and has continued to diminish as games progress. The basement remains the Devils' habitat.
I do not in the slightest blame the players, though.
I have witnessed a lot of energy, skill, and luck from the squad all season and they've done well, especially Hughes, Bratt, Nico, etc., to live up to expectations.
I blame the tragically depressing coaching staff. It's similar to watching amazing wrestlers putting up with WWE writing.
Oh, and don't ever claim I'm not fair because I need to give major props to Laine for THIS.
Tonight, the Rangers are on the plate. Will the players manage to push past Ruff's "abilities" at the helm?
