I had to perform the Wake-Up Test first. You know, the feeling you get when you wake up the next morning and for a few moments as your brain reloads you've forgotten that your team was just eliminated in a Game 7 shocker that should never have happened? And then you remember, and your heart sinks. That's the Wake-Up Test.
Now with all the scientific evidence collected, I have concluded where last night's loss to Carolina in Game 7 in Newark ranks on the list of all time Painful Losses for a Devils Fan:
1. 2001, Game 7 vs. Colorado, Stanley Cup Finals
2. 1994, Game 7 vs. New York, Eastern Conference Finals
3. 2009, Game 7 vs. Carolina, Quarterfinals
When your team is leading 3-2 with 80 seconds left, you're fairly sure you're going to the next round.
This will take a while to get over. Cheers to a great season.
P.S. The Rangers still suck.
