If a single video clip could sum up the Devils' season to this point, this would be it. Down one in the fourth round of last night's shootout against Buffalo, New Jersey turned to Devil-for-life Ilya Kovalchuk to keep the game alive. It did not go well. See for yourself below.
Naturally, someone's already created a "History Will Be Made" parody, one that references this memorable blooper.
The Devils, by the way, dropped to 4-10-2 on the season, good for ten points, the fewest of any team in the Eastern Conference.
