The New Jersey Devils are all tied up in their playoff series against their cross-river rivals the New York Rangers. Who are you rooting for?
While New Jersey has two NFL football teams who do everything in their power to deny that they're actually in New Jersey, and a basketball team that left the Garden State for Brooklyn, the Devils have done everything they can to capture the hearts of New Jersey residents.
They've won three Stanley Cups, declined an offer to move to Nashville in the mid-1990s and embraced their home state at nearly every turn.
So, if you live in New Jersey and are rooting for the Rangers, News 12's Brian Donohue - and a few other folks he met outside Madison Square Garden before Game 4 Monday night - would like a word with you.
