Hartford, CT, February 5, 2013 - On a night where Connecticut and the parent-team New York Rangers made some personnel swaps, the Devils bested both clubs Tuesday; the Whale suffered a loss at the hands of Albany, 4-3 in a shootout, while the Rangers fell to New Jersey, 3-1.
Brandon Mashinter was boomeranged to New York; he left for the Big Apple with J.T. Miller, and returned to Hartford with Benn Ferriero two days later without seeing any NHL ice time.
The first shot of Tuesday’s game got Albany on the board, when Brandon Burlon got the puck to Matt Anderson at the point. After two quick steps to the middle, Anderson wound and fired the puck over the stick side shoulder of starting goaltender Jason Missiaen for Anderson’s eighth of the year. The goal went under review, but would ultimately stand for a 1-0 Devils lead 27 seconds into the matchup.
Missiaen would make a glove save on Chad Wiseman shortly thereafter, but when Kyle Jean sat for holding ...

It looks the Stefan Matteau won't be returning to the QMJHL after all.
The 18-year-old forward, who was drafted 29th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, will burn the first year of his entry-level deal by playing his 6th NHL game tonight. Matteau is expected to skate on the top line with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk.
Matteau has zero points in five NHL games thus far...
That feeling a Devils fan gets when New Jersey beats the New York Rangers can’t be explained – but it sure does feel awesome! I hope we are all feeling that right now because for the 4th straight time (including playoffs), the Devils have proven that they are the better team in the Hudson River Rivalry.
This game had a terrific opening. Maybe I’m saying that...

Ilya Kovalchuk doesn't mind if his offensive production isn't up to his standards, so long as the New Jersey Devils keep winning.
If their goaltending is as good as it has been recently, they'll have a solid chance to earn a third consecutive victory Thursday night against a visiting Tampa Bay Lightning team that is suddenly...
Sunday afternoon Johan Hedberg and the New Jersey Devils shutout the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum. It was the Devils fourth win of the season and it snapped what was a four-game losing skid.
- What can you say about Johan Hedberg? He was outstanding Sunday afternoon and played a huge role in snapping a four-game losing streak. Hedberg made several big saves...
For the New York Rangers, tonight must have seemed familiar as the team was beaten by the strong performances of New Jersey Devils' forward David Clarkson and netminder Martin Brodeur in a 3-1 loss.
Clarkson continues to show that last year was not a fluke as he picked up his sixth and seventh goal of the year by doing something the Rangers have not done often enough this season...
David Clarkson scored twice and set up New Jersey's other goal, and Pat Elias matched his career best with three assists to lead the Devils to a 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night in their first meeting since last spring's Eastern Conference finals.
The Devils won that series in six games, and they still had the Rangers' number in getting 24 saves...
Brendan Shanahan, NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety, made an appearance Tuesday on Cisco NHL Live and provided analysis of a few plays from recent games that the League's Department of Player Safety determined did not warrant any supplemental discipline.
Three players have been suspended so far in the 2012-13 season -- Philadelphia's Brayden...
The New Jersey Devils have announced that they have acquired center Andrei Loktionov from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for their 5th round pick in 2013.
Loktionov, 22, had 22 points in 37 games with the Kings AHL affiliate, Manchester, this season.
The Devils have announced Loktionov will be assigned to Albany for the time being.
Loktionov is loaded with skill and has...

There will be anything but a shortage of talented, elite superstars tonight in Newark when the New York Rangers face off against the defending Eastern Conference Champions for the first time since game six of the Conference Finals last spring. The top lines from both sides of the Hudson will present equal threats to their opponent, but only...
In the first meeting between these two playoff bound teams, Martin Brodeur was the difference. He wasn’t called upon often, but he made some great saves when he needed to. The Rangers defense also fell asleep a few too many times this game, as their defensive miscues on goals one and three by the Devils turned out to be the difference in this game.
On a positive note, both Chris...

An overtime goal put the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup finals last spring, and sent the New York Rangers back home to regroup.
There isn't that much at stake this time at the Prudential Center, but the memory of that series is sure to further fuel the animosity between the bitter rivals Tuesday night.
