so as i'm watching game 7 of the 2003 cup I started thinking about the similarities between the 2000-2003 Devils and the 2008-2011 Wings are.
NJ 2000:Wins cup in 6 games
NJ 2001:Lost game 7 in finals after having 3-2 lead in series
NJ 2002:First round loss
NJ 2003:Won cup in 7 games
DET 2008:Wins cup in 6 games
DET 2009:Lost game 7 in finals after having 3-2 lead in series
DET 2010:Second round loss
with the exception of the game 7's(NJ road, DET home) and which round the teams lost after the game 7 loss they are the same results.
Is this foreshadowing or just a coincidence?
that would be a coincidence. unless it gives you hope then, yeah, foreshadowing. definitely foreshadowing.
