Devils Handed Flyers All The Momentum In Game One Loss

The biggest key for the New Jersey Devils in their game one matchup with the Philadelphia Flyers was momentum, according to SBN Devils blogger John Fischer, who runs the show over at In Lou We Trust. Instead of capturing it, Fischer says the Devils handed it right to their opponent while losing 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Here's ILWT:

Thanks to that, the Flyers faithful and the players they support are now totally validated by being confident in their regular season success over New Jersey carrying over into the playoffs. The Devils didn't just lose home-ice advantage, they essentially handed momentum right back to the Flyers.

That scares me. That angers me. That irritates me. That frustrates me.

We'll see on Wednesday night if the Devils can steal the mojo back.
