NEWARK -- Hockey has been considered Canada’s game, but U.S. hockey has slowly been making inroads.
When the puck drops tonight in Newark two American born captains will be on the ice for each squad, a rarity in the Stanley Cup Finals. Zach Parise, the captain of the Devils, may be best known by the casual fan for his game tying shot in the gold medal game against Canada in...
Aside from ocean views, Newark, New Jersey and Los Angeles, California have nothing in common. L.A. has smog. Newark has snow. L.A. has seven professional sports teams (including the Anaheim teams and USC football). Newark has one. L.A. has bleach-blonde toeheads. Newark has gorilla juiceheads. There are no commonalities. There is no rivalry. There is no hatred...
It was the lamentation of a man who was forced to admit a hard truth to himself.
"It would have been nice to get a bounce but I don't believe we deserved to win tonight," coach Pete DeBoer said a few minutes after his New Jersey Devils dropped Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final to the Los Angeles Kings, 2-1, in overtime at The Prudential Center.

Check this out, former Fighting Sioux and current New Jersey Devils forward Zach Parise is a hot commodity off the ice as well as two reporters almost end up slugging it out over positioning at the press conference.
Here is a great description of the incident from via Jill Painter of Inside the Kings,
There was a big scrum around Devils winger Zach Parise, and Parise almost...
Two summers ago, Ilya Kovalchuk was the biggest prize on the NHL free-agent market, and the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings went head to head for his services -- a battle the Devils eventually won when they signed the superstar left-winger to a 15-year, $100 million contract.
These days, it's nothing if not fitting that the road to the first Stanley Cup championship...
Mark Fayne knew the puck was heading his way and he knew Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick was out of position.
When the New Jersey defenseman went to fire a rebound into a seemingly wide-open net, an untimely bounce off the unsettled ice turned a potential go-ahead goal midway through the third period into another dose of frustration for the Eastern Conference champions.
If the Devils are going to win their fourth Stanley Cup, one would think they will have to be better offensively than they were in their overtime loss to the Kings in the first game of the Stanley Cup final Wednesday night. New Jersey mustered only 17 shots on Jonathan Quick in 68:13 of hockey as the Kings, kings of the road in these playoffs, took a 2-1 victory. Game 2 is Saturday...
Devils goalie Martin Brodeur with teammate Ilya Kovalchuk
An unlikely stage is set for this year’s Stanley Cup as two long shots will face off for a chance to hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup. The New Jersey Devils take on the Los Angeles Kings in this year’s final as 6th and 8th seeds, respectively.
It’s the fifth trip for the Devils in their team history, coming away as champions...
via Jill Painter of Inside the Kings, There was a big scrum around Devils winger Zach Parise, and Parise almost had to break up a fight between reporters. The two men were jockeying for position with their tape recorder and microphone, respectively, when one yelled ``Stop it!’’ while Parise was talking.
The reporter smacked his notebook against the microphone, then used the...

Without offending fans of the Kings, try to imagine this: The New Jersey Devils could win the Stanley Cup Finals, and in that aftermath, banks could seize the club and sell it. Think about that: In New Jersey… the Stanley Cup Champion…. seized and sold.
This is the NHL’s biggest issue off the rink. While the league itself sees in-roads with sponsorships, broadcast deals...
