Running With The Devils:
New Jersey Devils
Johan Hedberg kept the Devils in the game as long as he could, but New Jersey fell to the Boston Bruins by a score of 2-1 after an extended shootout. The Devils looked better than they did on Sunday in Montreal, but the offense just was not enough to slip by Boston tonight.
New Jersey and Boston played in a scoreless first period that saw nine shots on goal for both teams. Despite this statistic, the period seemed heavily dominated by the Bruins. Johan Hedberg was strong, as he was all night, in the opening twenty minutes and denied several scoring opportunities at his door step. The Devils were not as physical as we would like them to be, but looked better than they did on Sunday--that's for certain.
David Clarkson scored the lone goal for Jersey's team 8:30 into the middle period. The goal, Clarkson's fourth of the year, came on the power play and seemed to shift the momentum towards the visitor's side. Through strong defense and outstanding goaltending t...
BEST OF MAXIM
The New Jersey Devils were active on the waiver wire today as they have placed veteran tough-guy Cam Janssen on waivers, according to Darren Dreger of TSN.
No announcement has been made but I assume the Devils do this with the intention of sending Janssen to Albany if and when he clears waivers.
My guess is the Devils feel they have enough toughness on the big club with David...
The New Jersey Devils have announced that left winger Mattias Tedenby has been assigned to the Devils AHL affiliate, the Albany Devils.
Devils President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello said that someone will be recalled from Albany before tomorrow's game against Boston. My guess is that someone is Bobby Butler.
Sometimes the game-changing plays aren’t always the flashiest ones, but just making a heads-up decision at the right moment.

Shawn Thornton and Krys Barch are old friends, if friends were the type to beat each other’s faces in each time they met.
The two foes, who have a bit of a history together, squared off again on Tuesday night. It marked the sixth bout between the two tough guys, but this time the scorecards were clearly in favor of the Bruins’ enforcer. The marathon affair lasted a whopping minute...

The Bruins are home tonight against the defending Eastern Conference Champion New Jersey Devils just after playing last night against the Carolina Hurrricanes. The Bruins beat the Hurricanes 5-3, Seguin had an empty netter at the end of the game. Now the Bruins will have to face the Devils. The Devils, like the Bruins, have not yet lost in regulation. The Devils are 3-0-1 coming...
New Jersey Devils (3-0-1) @ Boston Bruins (4-0-1)
The Devils visit the TD Bank Garden tonight as the Devils and Bruins, the last two Eastern Conference teams without a regulation loss square off.
Let’s not beat around the bush. This is not an easy game the Devils are facing tonight. By making that statement, I am not taking away from what the Devils have accomplished...
It had been over nine months since New Jersey goaltender Johan Hedberg found himself in an NHL crease. Stagnant during the NHL lockout, you had to go all the way back to Apr. 17 to find the 39-year-oldâs last game-action, a 36-minute, 13-save relief outing back in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Florida Panthers.
But the Boston Bruins, entering...
The New Jersey Devils opened this lockout-shortened season by continuing their success against the New York Islanders.
The Islanders have a chance to change that with two meetings in the next four days and their impressive play on special teams could be key.
The Devils seek their 11th win in 13 home meetings against their Atlantic Division rivals on Thursday night.
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins used a lot of energy and hard work to get the win Monday in Carolina, but they better have something left over for Tuesday night as well.
Things won’t get any easier for the B’s, as they return home to host the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. The Devils, who had Monday off, will be rested and waiting for the Bruins in a matchup of two first-place teams...
Tuesday night’s shootout victory over the Devils could have
ended in horrific fashion for the Bruins. If Seguin wasn't filthy when no one else is on the ice and had missed his “second”
breakaway attempt the B’s would have only received one point and lost the game.
In a bizarre turn of events a spectator felt the need to
hurl a sausage sub at Johan Hedberg while...
