2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Flyers Vs. Devils: Reaction To Philadelphia Bowing Out

The season came to a close Tuesday night for the Philadelphia Flyers.

The New Jersey Devils thoroughly handled Philly in five games, a team many felt would go to the Stanley Cup Finals after knocking out the Pittsburgh Penguins.

New Jersey never let up and the Flyers just couldn't find an answer in the series.

Ben Rothenberg sums it up perfectly for Broad Street Hockey:

The Flyers got so thoroughly outworked, outplayed, and outcoached in this series that it was almost numbing. The Devils, a team no one saw as a real contender in this series or this season, played letter-perfect hockey for the last 11 periods of this series to absolutely obliterate the Flyers and ultimately win the series in five games. The Devils flat out embarrassed this team, and in so doing reignited a rivalry that had been pretty dead for the last decade.

After watching these last four games, it will be a long offseason for anybody associated with the orange and black.
