The New Jersey Devils’ playoffs hopes are slowly fading (via photos.nj)
For the ninth time in 10 shootouts this season, the New Jersey Devils were shutout. This time, it came at the hands of a New York Islanders team that had 10 rookies dressed in it’s lineup including goaltender Anders Nilsson.
Dating back to last season, the Devils have now lost an NHL record 14 consecutive shootouts. If that’s not bad enough, the Devils’ forwards are shooting at a hair above a 3-percent success rate. As a team, the Devils are 1-for-30 this season. Their only shootout goal came from rookie Reid Boucher, who is currently with the Devils’ AHL affiliate, the Albany Devils.

The shootout losses sting more and more given the Devils’ situation in the standings. With eight games remaining on the schedule, New Jersey is sitting five points out of the last Wild Card spot. If the Devils had won jus...

Martin Brodeur is a New Jersey Devil. For many of us, who have been following hockey since or before his rookie season at age 19, he is the New Jersey Devils. I would be lying if I didn’t breathe a sigh of relief when the trade deadline ended and he was still in New Jersey. The thought of Brodeur on any other team seems foreign.
Of course, team loyalty is but part of the equation...
Martin Brodeur has said that he is 80% sure that he will pay again next season, whether with the Devils or another team, and will test the free agent market, this summer.Brodeur has not been happy about the amount of playing time that he has had this season, the first time in his career, that Brodeur has not been the number one goaltender on the Devils roster. When the Devils acquired...

For the 12th time in his Devils career, Patrik Elias has scored 50 or more points in a season. No one is close to that franchise record, with John MacLean and Kirk Muller each doing it seven times.
Elias credits his mental approach since the Olympic break, as well as being linemates with Adam Henrique in nine of the 14 games since returning from Sochi, Russia.
“I feel much better...

It’s hard to think this may be the final time Martin Brodeur plays for the Devils, but if it were … goodness, the indignity.
With 6:35 gone by in the second period on Monday night, Brodeur fell over his own feet as the puck trickled through his legs and over the goal line, boos reigning down from those scattered about Prudential Center as the Hall of Famer to be and career Devil...
