It’s seven games into the 2013-14 season and they Devils have yet to win a game.
Tonight, early struggles by goaltender Martin Brodeur and a three-goal deficit proved too much for the Devils to overcome in a 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators that dropped their record to 0-4-3.
They completed their five-game Canadian road trip with a 0-3-2 record and now head home to host the rival Rangers, who, no doubt, would like nothing more to add to their misery.
“We’re being tested right now. That’s for sure,” Devils captain Bryce Salvador said. “All of our character is being tested right now and we’ve got to make sure that we have our head up and realize that no one’s coming in to do anything for us. It’s everyone in here that’s going to have to continue to put on our work hats and make sure we’re coming and sticking to it.”

AROUND THE WEB
Devils players and general manager Lou Lamoriello remain convinced that coach Pete DeBoer has one of the brightest hockey minds in the NHL and that he is still the man who can turn the team’s season around before it’s too late.
But as the 0-4-3 Devils look for their first victory of the season when they host the Rangers (2-4-0) tonight at Prudential Center how patient will Lamoriello...
from Tom Gulitti of The Record,
So far, the players and Lamoriello have given every indication that they still believe in head coach Pete DeBoer. But, if a team keeps losing like this one has been dating back to last season – 4-12-7 in its last 23 games overall – eventually the head coach pays for it no matter how much the players want to play for him or how much of the...
Despite outplaying the Ottawa Senators for much of the night in their home opener, the New Jersey Devils once again left the ice the losing team.
The Senators jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, added another in the second period and ultimately that was too much for the Devils to overcome.
Craig Anderson stopped 40 pucks while Martin Brodeur only stopped 18-22 and that was the...
Martin Brodeur will start Thursday when the Devils play in Ottawa.

New Jersey (0-4-3) has started a season with seven straight losses...

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
Watching Martin Brodeur yield a boatload of soft goals through his first four games has been like watching Derek Jeter hit a succession of soft ground balls through the first half of the 2011 season.
It has been tough on the eyes, difficult to absorb and more difficult to process, because the mind’s eye freezes Brodeur in time as...
