You know, there’s a lot of talk on the Internets tonight about how Game 4 has been sort of boring. I’m not sure boring is the right word.
Uneventful? Yes. A little bit dull on the offensive side of the puck? Yes.
But in all, this game has been pretty entertaining. It’s 0-0 entering the third period of an elimination game, and it’s certainly easy to complain when the teams go back and forth without scoring chances for a long stretch of time in the second period. And when the Devils go without a shot for what seems like an entire period.
But scoring chances alone aren’t what makes hockey interesting. Both goaltenders are playing phenomenal hockey, puck battles are complete with the intensity that you’d expect from a Stanley Cup Finals game, and you know what? When the teams do get scoring chances, they’ve been of the ridiculously fun variety.
Stop complaining. The Cup can be won tonight.
