The New Jersey Devils squeaked out a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders to open up the shortened 2012-2013 NHL season. While the victory is encouraging, concerns surrounding the team’s offensive depth and if the Devils will be able to produce offensively this season were conjured up as the Devils only managed to score twice on 28 shots.
The Devil’s next game will take place this Tuesday on opening night against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers are off to an 0-2 start and very hungry to attain their first victory of the shortened season. I don’t need to emphasize that the Flyers are going to be extremely motivated going into Tuesday night’s match up against the Devils, motivation that is backed by three big reasons.
To reiterate, the Flyers have yet to register a victory on the season. As each day passes, this team gets more and more anxious to finally get over that hump. Any team will be fired up going into a game against a rival opponent. Whil...

AROUND THE WEB
NEWARK, N.J. -- It was the 658th time in his sure-fire Hall of Fame and storied career that Martin Brodeur sat at his locker after a victory. It was also the 120th time that Brodeur posted a shutout, extending both NHL records. But they're just numbers now for the 40-year-old Brodeur, who was victorious once again Tuesday night, helping the New Jersey Devils to a 3-0 shutout...
from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News,
Contrary to popular belief, the New Jersey Devils are not a bunch of automatons. Too much personality. But you’d be excused for thinking that GM Lou Lamoriello spends his time in some elaborate control room in the Prudential Center meticulously guiding all the movements of his players.
How else do you explain this franchise? In what...
Martin Brodeur made 24 saves for his 120th NHL shutout, Ilya Kovalchuk scored on a short-handed penalty shot, and the New Jersey Devils won their home opener in front of an enthusiastic sellout crowd with a 3-0 victory over the winless Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.
Travis Zajac and David Clarkson scored first-period goals for the defending Eastern Conference champions, 2...
After knocking off the Flyers 3-0 last night at The Rock, the over-all feeling about this team was a good feeling. I thought they put in a great effort, did some good things and stuck up for one another. That isn’t to say that there are things to work on because there are ALWAYS things that need a little work. Then I started thinking about Cam Janssen and I am just confused...
Brendan Shanahan has spoken for the first time this season, and that’s not good news for Brayden Schenn and the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Flyers forward was suspended one game Wednesday for his hit on New Jersey’s Anton Volchenkov in the Devils’ 3-0 win over the winless Flyers on Tuesday night.
Shanahan explained that the supplemental discipline comes from the fact that Schenn...
Philadelphia Flyers (0-2-0) @ New Jersey Devils (1-0-0)
The Devils return home tonight for the first time this season. There will be a new banner in the ceiling (although it’s not the banner 99.999% of us REALLY wanted but it did come at the expense of the Rangers so if you are bummed it’s not a Stanley Cup banner, at least find comfort in knowing that it isn’t...
The New Jersey Devils played in their home opener Tuesday night and didn't disappoint as they shutout the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0.
Here are some notes the game.
- That was a big win for the Devils. They didn't seem to have their legs under them for almost the entire first period, yet they had a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes of play. New Jersey started to find their game...
NEWARK, N.J. -- Veteran goaltender Martin Brodeur stopped 21 shots for his 658th career victory and 120th shutout, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night in the Devils' home opener of the shortened season. Travis Zajac, David Clarkson and Ilya Kovalchuk (on a penalty shot) scored goals for the Devils, who improved to 2-0...

New Jersey will look to win their first home season- opener against the Flyers since 1991 and extend their all-time home-opener record to 17-8-5 when they play host to the Flyers in their 31st home season-opener tonight at the Prudential Center. The meeting will be the first of three to take place in Newark this season between the clubs...
Let’s start with the pre-game coverage because it bothered me. Before we even get to the broadcast, NBC cuts to an interview between Salvador and Brian Engblom and all he’s interest is the team’s mindset now that Parise is in Minnesota. In fact, according to Engblom, the Devils have remained intact from last season except for the departure of Zach Parise. No mention...
