New Jersey Devils vs Toronto Maple Leafs – The Morning After

Posted by on December 7, 2011

The Morning After series of posts will present an idea of what fans are talking about and how they’re feeling after Devils games.

Good, bad or indifferent, it will be fun to see what the reaction is from most fans the morning after a game. I will pull reactions from Twitter, Facebook, and any other public source where I find something good.

I will also include links to reactions and recaps of the game from some other sites.

Most will be post-game thoughts, but I will also pull some from during the game.

On Twitter, I will take a sampling of tweets sent to me and tweets I find by searching the #NJDevils and related (also opposing team’s) hashtags and include the user name.

From other sources, I will include only a first name and last initial. If you see something of yours here and would like to be linked or unlinked, feel free to let me know.

Here we go…
