How Ilya Kovalchuk (& Habs) SCREWED OVER The New Jersey Devils ONCE AGAIN (2020 Stanley Cup News)

I stumbled upon this post on the New Jersey Devils subreddit, mentioning how the Devils were oh so close to the 2020 Stanley Cup Play-In Series, and by default the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The post put an emphasis on the game played on February 4th of this year, where the Montreal Canadiens bounced back and defeated the Devils in the shootout. This was a performance highlighted by former New Jersey Devils star Ilya Kovalchuk, and his dagger in the extra-extra frame. The funny thing about this game, as highlighted by the post on Reddit, is that the outcome could have vastly shifted the entire landscape of the 2020 Play-In Series today; altering who would face the Pittsburgh Penguins, and who would have a chance at a lottery pick at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.

Reddit Post:

The draft is stacked with guys like Alexis Lafrenière at the top, with Quinton Byfield, Tim Stützle, Lucas Raymond, Alexander Holtz, Jamie Drysdale, Marco Rossi, Cole Perfetti, Jake Sanderson, and Yaroslav Askarov rounding out the top 10. The rest of the draft has a ton of great talent as well, like Anton Lundell, Kaiden Guhle, Dawson Mercer, Braden Schneider, Dylan Holloway, Hendrix Lapierre, Connor Zary, Justin Barron, Jack Quinn, John-Jason Peterka, William Wallinder, Rodion Amirov, Jacob Perreault, Seth Jarvis, Ty Smilanic, Jeremie Poirer, Noel Gunler, Mavrik Bourque, Lukas Reichel, Tyler Kleven, Ridly Greig, Justin Sourdif, Shakir Mukhamadullin, Jake Neighbours, Luke Tuch, Helge Grans, Jan Mysak, Michael Benning, and Antonio Stranges.
