8 a.m. ET: The Bruins used a lot of energy and hard work to get the win Monday in Carolina, but they better have something left over for Tuesday night as well. Things won’t get any easier for the B’s, as they return home to host the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. The Devils, who had Monday off, will be rested and waiting for the Bruins in a matchup of two first-place teams. The Devils, the reigning Eastern Conference champions, have picked up right where they left off last year. Like the Bruins, their only loss came in overtime, being edged by Andrei Markov and the Canadiens on Sunday night in Montreal. The Devils are getting contributions from all over, with Patrik Elias and David Clarkson leading the way with six points. Ilya Kovalchuk returned to the NHL after some debate about whether he’d stay in Russia. It’s a good thing for the Devils they got him back, too, as he’s got two goals and three assists already this year. In net, it’s the same old story for the Devils. Martin ...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils Place Cam Janssen On Waivers

The New Jersey Devils were active on the waiver wire today as they have placed veteran tough-guy Cam Janssen on waivers, according to Darren Dreger of TSN. No announcement has been made but I assume the Devils do this with the intention of sending Janssen to Albany if and when he clears waivers. My guess is the Devils feel they have enough toughness on the big club with David...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils Assign Mattias Tedenby To Albany

The New Jersey Devils have announced that left winger Mattias Tedenby has been assigned to the Devils AHL affiliate, the Albany Devils.

My guess is that someone is Bobby Butler. -------------------------------------------------------...

Hedberg Not Enough: Devils Fall 2-1

Johan Hedberg kept the Devils in the game as long as he could, but New Jersey fell to the Boston Bruins by a score of 2-1 after an extended shootout. The Devils looked better than they did on Sunday in Montreal, but the offense just was not enough to slip by Boston tonight. New Jersey and Boston played in a scoreless first period that saw nine shots on goal for both teams. Despite...

Todd Cordell: Patrik Elias Records 900th Point Against The Montreal Canadiens

Arguably the best forward to ever play for the New Jersey Devils, Patrik Elias, has hit the 900-point plateau in his career. Elias entered tonight's game against Montreal three points shy of the mark, but scored the Devils 1st goal and picked up primary assists on two more to reach the mark. Elias still plans on playing a few more seasons in the NHL so barring any major...

Shawn Thornton, Krys Barch Continue Their Bad Blood in Marathon Fight (Video)

Shawn Thornton and Krys Barch are old friends, if friends were the type to beat each other’s faces in each time they met. The two foes, who have a bit of a history together, squared off again on Tuesday night. It marked the sixth bout between the two tough guys, but this time the scorecards were clearly in favor of the Bruins’ enforcer. The marathon affair lasted a whopping minute...
