Shootouts have been a problem for the Devils for far too long. It’s not just this season, in which they have lost each of their four shootouts without scoring on all 14 attempts. Going back to last season they’ve now lost eight straight shootouts since Patrik Elias gave them a victory over the Winnipeg Jets on March 10. That’s one short of the NHL record of nine in a row, done three times, including a current nine shootout losing streak by the Calgary Flames. The Devils’ 20 consecutive shootout attempts without scoring has tied the record set by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2009, according to Elias Sports Bureau. The issue has reached the point where Devils goalies cringe when games reach a shootout. “Right now I think that’s obvious,” said Martin Brodeur, who will be in goal Sunday night when the Devils face the Nashville Predators at Prudential Center. “It’s one of those things. You try to keep your team in it and give them a chance. (Cory Schneider) did and on other nights I ...

Predators on hand for history by Jagr in loss to Devils

NEWARK, N.J. -- Jaromir Jagr and Martin Brodeur, two 41-year-old veterans, did what they've done throughout their brilliant careers on Sunday night for New Jersey.

Jagr became the eighth player in NHL history to top 1,700 points, Brodeur got his 123rd shutout, and Janssen got his fifth...

Jaromir Jagr Becomes Eighth Player to Reach 1,700 Points With Fifth Goal of Season (Video)

Jaromir Jagr added yet another bullet point to his impressive resume on Sunday night. The 41-year-old winger didn’t wait long to reach his latest milestone, scoring just 90 seconds into the game against the Predators to record his fifth goal of the season.

Shanahan the disciplinarian > Shanahan the player?

Three Stanley Cups, 656 goals, 1,354 points in 1,524 games played and the "Shanahan Summit" under his belt. "Meh?" Maybe, per NHL.com's Dan Rosen: While praising the five new members who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman singled out his own employee as his "personal favorite." Brendan Shanahan...

Shanahan still carving place in NHL history

It's a ritual of Hockey Hall of Fame induction weekend for members of the selection committee to read the plaques of incoming members. As chairman Pat Quinn read Brendan Shanahan's on Friday, he paused to go off script. ''The only player in NHL history to record 600 goals and 2,000 penalty minutes,'' Quinn read aloud before ad-libbing. ''You can...

Devils’ Stephen Gionta day-to-day with sore foot

New Jersey Devils forward Stephen Gionta is out day-to-day with a sore foot, as reported by Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record. Gionta got tangled up and fell into the boards feet-first during Friday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He left the game because he rolled his ankle and didn’t return. He was not on the ice for the Devils’ morning skate Sunday. Through 16 games...

Devils’ Jaromir Jagr in it Until the End

During a recent interview with the Courier-Post, the soon to be 42 year old New Jersey Devils player Jaromir Jagr said he is not ready to hang up his skates just yet. He said, “I’ll tell you one thing, as long as I don’t die, it’s not my last year of playing hockey.” Jagr who ended the shortened season with the Bruins (after being traded by the Dallas Stars in April), became...

Jagr with his 686th goal and 1700th point in the NHL. The first European to reach that figure. First the Nashville broadcast call, then below the call by the New Jersey crew.     Continue reading "Video- Jaromir Jagr Reaches 1700 Points"

Jagr, Brodeur lead Devils rout of Predators

Just a ho-hum game ripped from the annals of 1996. Or so it seemed Sunday night at Prudential Center, where Jaromir Jagr and Martin Brodeur were two of the best players on the ice, joining forces to lead the Devils to a dominating 5-0 win over the Predators. “It’s the way we like it,” Brodeur said. “Solid game, that’s the bottom line. That’s the way we need to play.”...

Van Riemsdyk leads Maple Leafs past Devils in SO

James van Riemsdyk scored on a low wrist shot in the shootout to give the Toronto Maple Leafs a 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night. Cory Schneider stopped Toronto's Mason Raymond and Phil Kessel before van Riemsdyk's goal. Adam Henrique then fired wide for the Devils.

Patten’s Plus-Minus: Nashville Predators at New Jersey Devils

The best and worst from Nashville’s 5-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday night. Plus: The McRib is back. The Predators did not have a holding call in their own end zone that resulted in a safety which would ultimately become the deciding score in a game that the team desperately needed to stay relevant in their division. After crashing awkwardly into Derek Morris against...
