Running With The Devils:
New Jersey Devils
The New Jersey Devils' five-game winning streak came to an abrupt end on Tuesday evening. The Devils were defeated by a fiesty Carolina Hurricanes team in a game that could have easily gone the Devils' way. After falling behind 2-1 going into the third, the Devils tied the game at two, but allowed two more unanswered goals before time ran out.
While the game did not turn out the way New Jersey had hoped, they remain at the top of the Eastern Conference at 8-2-3.
The Devils hit a road bump last week in Pittsburgh and responded well. Hopefully, they can do the same after yesterday's loss. The focus in the locker room must now be on the fact that the Philadelphia Flyers are rolling into town on Friday night.
Ilya Kovalchuk collected his fifth goal of the season last night on a first period Devils powerplay. The play was ruled "no goal" on the ice, but upon further review, the call was overturned. The powerplay was decent at best last night; good puc...

New Jersey Devils forward, David Clarkson, was the star of the evening in Newark once again last night, this time in front of 200 smiling, grateful faces from the Hockey In Newark program, where Clarkson and the NHLPA’s Goals and Dreams program donated 50 sets of brand new equipment.

Well, that didn't take long.
New Jersey Devils President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, announced today that recently acquired forward Andrei Loktionov has been called up to the big club.
The Devils have placed veteran forward Dainius Zubrus, who has missed the last few games with an upper-body injury, on injured reserve to make room for Loktionov.

Despite coming up short in the Stanley Cup Finals last season, New Jersey Devils head coach Pete DeBoer said one of the big pluses of the Devils remarkable playoff run were the playoff demons they exorcised along the way. Their first round triumph over the Florida Panthers snapped a postseason advancement drought that’s stretched back to 2008. Their...

The Hurricanes have a chance to end this six-game road trip on a high note by winning four out of six games and taking home nine out of a possible 12 points with a win tonight over the New Jersey Devils. At the beginning of the year, I said that the Hurricanes need to make it out of...

New Jersey Devils President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, announced via conference call that the Devils have acquired veteran forward and former Devil Alexei Ponikarovsky from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a 7th round pick in the 2013 draft and a 4th round pick in the 2014 draft.
This trade makes sense on a few...
Wednesday night New Jersey Devils President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, announced that the team had acquired veteran forward and former Devil Alexei Ponikarovksy from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a 4th round pick in 2014 and a 7th round pick in 2013.
My thoughts on the trade:
First and foremost, this move was made in large part due Dainius Zubrus' injury uncertainty...
The Hurricanes managed to pull out a 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils last night and they did it on the back of one of their weakest offensive performances of the young season. The Devils held Carolina to only nine scoring chances at even strength and 12 overall, which are season lows for the Hurricanes this season. New Jersey is also only the third team this season to outchance...
