UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- David Clarkson scored the tie-breaking goal with 11:43 left in the third period as the reigning Eastern Conference champion New Jersey Devils edged the New York Islanders, 2-1, in the season opener for both teams Saturday night. Clarkson scored just 65 seconds after the Islanders' Travis Hamonic tied it with a power play goal. The sellout crowd of 16,170 was still cheering Hamonic's tally when Clarkson's slap shot threaded the needle between teammate Patrik Elias as well as the Islanders' Brian Strait and Mark Streit and flew past goalie Evgeni Nabokov. Travis Zajac scored the first goal of the game for the Devils, who lost to the Los Angeles Kings in six games in last year's Stanley Cup Finals, while goaltender Martin Brodeur began his 20th NHL season by recording 17 saves as the Devils improved to 18-8-4 in season openers since moving to New Jersey in 1982. The Islanders, who are trying to snap a streak of five straight last-place finis...

New York Islanders head coach Jack Capuano is out of the hospital following surgery to treat kidney stones, but it is unknown when he will make his season debut behind the bench.
Capuano was released Sunday morning after having surgery Saturday night, when the Islanders opened the season with a 2-1 home loss to the New Jersey Devils.
It wasn't until about 25 minutes before...
UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New Jersey Devils began their run as one of the NHL's most dominant teams during the last lockout-shortened season. Eighteen years later, the Devils are still playing the same efficient and collective type of hockey that's defined their generation of success. David Clarkson scored the tie-breaking goal with 11:43 left in the third period as the reigning...
Martin Brodeur is entering his 19th season in the NHL with a little excitement, some expectation and a new teammate who is a blast from the past:
''Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!''
The Devils started the season off with a surprise Friday, placing top draft pick Stefan Matteau, 18, on their 23-man roster for the opener against the New York Islanders Saturday.

Recently, New Jersey Devils head coach Pete DeBoer made it official that Zach Parise’s successor as captain will be defenseman Bryce Salvador.
The Devils’ community has primarily reflected three main views on the decision to paste the “C” on Salvador’s jersey. Fans have either supported the decision, were against it, or focused more on the hypocrisy...
The New York Islanders suspended defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky on Friday after he failed to report to the team and signed former Pittsburgh defenseman Brian Strait off waivers. Visnovsky, 36, has played in the Kontinental Hockey League in his native Russia during the lockout. He was traded to the Islanders from the Anaheim Ducks during the offseason. Visnovsky had told the Islanders...
The New Jersey Devils opened the 2013 season with a win against the division-rival New York Islanders. Martin Brodeur played well between the pipes, Travis Zajac and David Clarkson provided the offense, and the Devils jumped out to a quick two points.
I was extremely impressed with the pace of the game in the first period. The Devils moved the puck well and had a few good...
Brian Strait has been claimed by the New York Islanders.
It looked like a risk sending him down...

NYI claim Brian Strait from PIT.

In a few years we will stop having to visit that place they call an arena on Long Island and head to Brooklyn to play the Islanders but for now, we will continue to play in them in the Nassau Coliseum.
Here we go… CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?? Finally, after months and months of fighting over money and more money and contract...

Just some news and notes for anyone who is interested before the Devils take on the Islanders tomorrow on the Island.
Bryce Salvador has been named the captain of the New Jersey Devils, replacing Zach Parise who has since moved on to play for Minnesota. Seems to be a pretty well-supported pick by the players.
“I think it’s a great choice,” said Ilya Kovalchuk to Tom...
With just one day remaining until the 2013 NHL season begins, we could see a familiar face back in the black and red by the time New Jersey opens the season against the New York Islanders.
The New Jersey Devils are among a group of six teams that have expressed interest in Scott Gomez, according to Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet.
The Carolina Hurricanes, New York Islanders and Anaheim...
Another Martin Luther King Day kids even for the New York Islanders. This one stocked with Marvel Super Heros. But the one who has been deadly for the Islanders for years has always been Marty St. Louis.
The two teams has split the last four games they have played against each other but that's ancient history. Today is what counts.
The Bolts did a number on the Caps...
Reaching the Stanley Cup finals hasn't made the New Jersey Devils one of the favorites to win the NHL title in this lockout-shortened season.
Far from it.
Despite returning Ilya Kovalchuk, Martin Brodeur and much of the club that came within two games of winning its fourth Cup, the Devils have a lot of doubters heading into the 48-game regular season, which begins Saturday...
No Zach Parise, no problem. The New Jersey Devils opened up a new era without their former captain in fine fashion as they topped the New York Islanders 2-1.
Here are some notes on the Devils 2-1 win as well as some prospect updates.
- Given the circumstances, things went about as well as they could have for the Devils. That was a big win for them to open the season as not...
