The third installment of the two-week trilogy with the Devils ended last night, and it was as disappointing as Godfather III. OK, no one’s daughter was made into swiss cheese from a gangster machine gun, but it hurt never-the-less.
New Jersey earned their seventh consecutive win. The Devils are passionately fighting for a play-off spot, as they are 15-1-2 in the past 18 games. New Jersey trails the Hurricanes by ten points in the Eastern Conference standings.
Despite the 4-1 loss, the 17,000-plus Hurricane fans were glad to have their boys home this weekend. Canes host the New York Rangers on Tuesday. The Rangers are in 7th place with two points ahead of Carolina in the playoff standings.
Speaking of trilogies, here are some famous series and their hockey counterparts for kicks and giggles…
Back to the Future…Back to a Fracture
Lord of the Rings…Lord of the Wings
Star Wars…Staal Wars
The Godfather…The Goaltender
Look Who’s Talking…Look Who’s Tripping
The Matrix…The Hat Trix (ok, that was a stretch)
