Devils 3, Rangers 2 -- Eastern Conference Finals, Game 2: Peter DeBoer Reaction

New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer thought his team’s “overall game was much better” in Game 2 of the NHL Eastern Conference Finals, a game the Devils won, 3-2, to knot their series with the New York Rangers at 1-1.

“I thought we established our forecheck right off the bat in the first period and we’re creating zone time and chances. I think in the second a couple of the penalties took us out of it and they regained some momentum with couple of power play goals,” DeBoer said. “But we felt that if we could play five‑on‑five and stick with it, that we were going to get rewarded, and that’s what happened.”

The Devils now head home for games 3 and 4.

“We have to take care of business at home. It’s [Madison Square Garden] a tough building to win in. And it’s nice to get a split. But there’s a lot of hockey left. And glad to be going home for two.”
