*** Follow me on Twitter @NJDAdvocate What happened to the Devils in such short period of time??!! The easy answer is, Kovalchuk is hurt. But a team relying on one player so heavily is exactly what Uncle Lou Lamoriello has preached against and avoided. So what happened???? Do not let last night's result of 5-4 loss to the Bruins fool you - it was not that close! Early breakdowns, short...

Roger Mussa: Are the NJ Devils the Calgary of the East??? No, they will not flame!

Follow me @NJDAdvocate Has the New Jersey Devils, and Uncle Lou, lost their way? Is it time to rebuild? After reading a very good article by Damien Cox (see here: http://www.thestar.com/sports/hockey/2013/04/12/new_jersey_devils_in_dire_need_of_reboot_cox.html ) I thought Id share some of my thoughts. There has been debate, for years, that Uncle Lou and the Devils should...

Volchenkov Suspended 4 Games

Anton Volchenkov has been suspended by the NHL Department of Players Safety for four games for his hit on Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand. The hit was obviously dirty and was well due for a suspension. Anton Volchenkov has had previous disciplinary action before which is why he probably received four games.

The Devils Way Going Away

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, Lamoriello’s team is now 10th in the East and has lost eight in a row, the 40-year-old Brodeur hasn’t won a game since March 15, Ilya Kovalchuk can’t get healthy and defenceman Anton Volchenkov was sat down for four games on Thursday for elbowing Brad Marchand. Suddenly, this is starting to look a little like Calgary East, a situation...

Anton Volchenkov's dirty elbow on Brad Marchand

This is a dirty, bush-league hit and it’s a violation of the NHL’s rule 48. The Head is targeted; it’s pretty cut and dried. I am going to be very surprised and disappointed if Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov isn’t given a 3-4 game suspension for this dirty and unnecessary hit on Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand. Seriously, there is no defending this hit. I don’t...
