There is no doubt that the winner of Game 5 will take the inside lane to a series victory, so we can expect one of the hardest fought games of the postseason.
It’s down to the best of three now between these Atlantic Division foes.
Who Ya Got in Game 5?
When: Wednesday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET
Watch: NBCS, CBC

Over/Under: 4.5, Spread: New York -1.5
As great as the duo of Martin Brodeur and Henrik Lunqvist have been in net this series, there are too many offensive stars on the ice for the scores to stay as low as they were through the first three games. With five goals scored in Game 4, I will ride that trend and take the over and New York winning by two goals.
Injuries (via TSN)
Chad Kolarik: on injured reserve, out indefinitely
Michael Sauer: on injured reserve
Mats Zuccarello: out indefinitely
Brandon Dubinsky: out indefinitely
Henrik Tallinder: on injured reserve, out indefinitely
What They're Saying
The official New Jersey Devils Twitter account reported an amazing statistic that could once again come into play in Game 5:
Devils 5-0-0 when leading after two periods. Rangers 0-3-0 when trailing after two.— New Jersey Devils (@NHLDevils) May 22, 2012
Sports columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Jason Gay, resorts to using Seinfeld clips that never get old:
Seinfeld Puddy clip is 17 years old and talks about Rangers-Devils being tied 2-2 after Game 4. Things never change! youtube.com/watch?v=ftUR6A…— Jason Gay (@jasonWSJ) May 22, 2012
Brodeur has been lights out all series. With two goals allowed in each game and just one in Game 4, the veteran goalie has shown that even at his age, there is still more than enough in the tank for another run at the cup.
If the Devils' netminder keeps playing the way he has, Lord Stanley’s Cup may be heading to Jersey.
Key Matchup: Brandon Prust vs. Zach Parise
Prediction: New York 4, New Jersey 2
After a hard-fought battle in New Jersey, the Rangers will come out swinging in Game 5. If they can solve the Brodeur riddle early, New York will put the Devils in a whole too deep to get out of.
