In January 2010, I was at a Rangers game against the Devils. Regulation and overtime both ended with the score 0-0. The first three shooters in the shootout all failed to score. Finally, in the fourth round of the shootout, Patrik Elias scored to give the Devils a 1-0 shootout win. Despite the lack of goals, it was unquestionably the best game of the season to that point and probably for the rest of he season.
Yesterday’s 1-0 overtime win against the Red Wings was not that.
