As for our website, you can continue to expect both pre game, and post game coverage and analysis of the series against the Devils. We’ll have posts leading up to Friday’s game, as well as coverage for all the playoff series.
Tomorrow I’ll have a post up in the morning with comments from some of you our loyal readers. Coming also will be what to expect from a playoff game and series, as I’ll give you my take on what this actually is going to feel like.
It’s a very exciting time, and I know you can’t wait until Friday.
