New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
Johan Hedberg made 22 saves for his 22nd career shutout and the New Jersey Devils beat the New York Islanders 2-0 Sunday.
Steve Bernier scored for New Jersey in the third period and David Clarkson added an empty-netter to help the Devils snap a four-game winless streak (0-1-3).
While neither the Islanders nor Devils was able to break through in the opening 55 minutes, both teams alternated periods in which they controlled play. New York outshot the Devils 10-7 in a high-tempo first period, while New Jersey implemented its trademark defensive system in the second.
Hedberg's biggest save came 8:08 into the third period when he stoned New York right wing Michael Grabner on a short-handed breakaway with the game scoreless.
Evgeni Nabokov had 24 saves. His best one occurred 2:05 into the second when he swallowed a drive by Patrik Elias following Brian Strait's giveaway in his own zone.

Fans, inebriated or not, have been attempting to distract opposing players for years, from nude overaggressive on-field dashes to the air horn.

While it appears Hedberg was never affected...
UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- In a span of a little more than half an hour Sunday, the New Jersey Devils went from fretting over the possibility of suffering their fifth straight loss to boarding the team bus fresh off a lopsided win that catapulted them into second place in the Atlantic Division. Welcome to the 48-game NHL season, where the path from panic to relief - and vice versa - is...
That's right folks. Whenever the Devils play on Super Bowl Sunday, they usually win and that did not change today. After a disappointing finish in Pittsburgh last afternoon, the Devils headed to Long Island to play the New York Islanders for the second time in three games. This game was a crucial one for New Jersey as it would give them the opportunity to make up...
It was just that kind of day for the New Jersey Devils. I was not able to catch the game on TV today as I was out the majority of the day with my family, but I listened to it on a radio app on my iphone. Nonetheless, I hope I speak for all Devils fans that the game played earlier this afternoon was the most embarrassing game New Jersey has played this season.

An overtime goal put the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup finals last spring, and sent the New York Rangers back home to regroup.
There isn't that much at stake this time at the Prudential Center, but the memory of that series is sure to further fuel the animosity between the bitter rivals Tuesday night.
