The Tampa Bay Lightning remain mathematically alive in the Eastern Conference playoff race but are holding on for dear life.
While captain Vincent Lecavalier's expected return to the lineup should provide a spark, Tampa Bay may have already run out of time...
Marty, Marty Marty….our old nemesis. We’ve been at this a long time. Ever since you were kind enough to give us MATTEAU! MATTEAU!, back in the ’94 playoffs. Marty Brodeur has had an unbelievable career and added plenty of fire and arrogant attitude to the rivalry the past 18 years or so. He holds many of the NHL’s goaltending records and is a sure fire first-ballot...
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New Jersey Devils are a point away from returning to the playoffs after a rare postseason absence a year ago.
Ilya Kovalchuk and Marek Zidlicky scored in a 1:11 span to cap a four-goal second period and the Devils put themselves on the doorstep of a playoff berth with a 6-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.
The Devils had a chance...
The New Jersey Devils and Chicago Blackhawks had a real defensive battle last night. Martin Brodeur played amazingly well considering his team was severely outshot in the game. With a 1-1 score, the game would need to be settled in a shootout. After just returning to the lineup the other game, Travis Zajac came out as the fifth shooter and snapped a shot over Corey Crawford to score...
It was 20 years ago yesterday, that a 19 year old Martin Brodeur played in his first NHL game. Since then (pre game stats) he has notched 651 victories while playing in 1,186 games. Add 118 (wow!) shut outs, all 3 of these NHL records, and you have a solid, Hall of Fame, career. He was the difference in this game, stopping some where around 38 shots, as the Hawks lost in a shoot...
That's right, folks. The New Jersey Devils' magic number is down to one. By defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning by a score of 6-4 on Thursday evening, the Devils moved closer to the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Washington Capitals defeated the Boston Bruins in a shooutout, 3-2, which prevented New Jersey from clinching. However, Martin Brodeur looked sharp tonight and the...
Though it wasn't pretty, last night the New Jersey Devils beat the Chicago Blackhawks in a shootout and got one step closer to clinching a playoff berth. Here are some notes on the game, and some other Devils related topics.
- Martin Brodeur was certainly on his 'A' game last night. As I noted in the preview, he had been fighting it a little bit over the past four...
Last night the New Jersey Devils beat the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Prudential Center in what was an evenly played game until the third period. Here are some notes on the game, and some other Devils topics.
- With last night's win, the Devils all but officially guaranteed a playoff position for themselves this season. The Capitals won, so they didn't clinch, but the Capitals...
The 11th place Tampa Bay Lightning visit the Rock for the final time this season. The Devils lead the season series 2-1 with both wins coming in Tampa Bay, which seems like a common theme this season. How many teams have we split the season series with this season? Tampa Bay is basically out of the playoffs, which having played in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, having...
New Jersey Devils captain (for now) Zach Parise, finding himself in the eye of the storm of full-on Tebowmania given that Tim Tebow is now a member of the New York Jets, an NFL team that just so happens to play its home games in the Garden State as Parise does, recently expressed his bewilderment [...]
