Home Cookin'....or Spank You Very Much

Home cooking is a sports euphemism used to describe a successful win on your home ice (field, pitch..whatever). Generally, used when a team is red hot and a butt-whooping is applied. On Wednesday, the Devils were all in the kitchen and the stove was cranked up. Way up. The boys in Red who had lost 6 of their last 10 in the regular season looked like the Devils of old. The Devs from late February...they were firing on all cylinders and opened up their playoff run with an impressive 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. The 'Canes are no slouches and have a great team but looked out of place on the ice with the Devs. The boys played mostly seamless hockey. Controlling the puck for most of the game and were at one point peppering the Canes goalie for what seemed like fifteen minutes, but I have been known to exaggerate once in awhile.
The boys looked sharp and are back in action tonight. In just a few minutes actually.
Good luck guys!
