Certainly there was no one more relieved by the New Jersey Devils' win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 2 than rookie Adam Henrique.
The hero of Game 7 in the first round against Florida was tied for the game high with four shots and likely had half a dozen glorious scoring chances on his stick but was held off the score sheet.
“You noticed that? Oh my God. I don’t think there’s anybody more relieved than me right now,” the Calder Trophy finalist told ESPN.com.
“Obviously, [when] you get chances it gets frustrating you don’t get one. You get so many chances like that. But hats off, [Bryzgalov] played a great game. Tried to keep my cool, stay with it. And when Larsson got that one four-on-four, I was so happy for him and just a little bit of relief and then, you know, the next couple of goals, and I’m probably the most relieved guy here."
