Running With The Devils:
New Jersey Devils
New York Rangers
Los Angeles Kings
The Devils are one win away from a date with the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals. After coming out quick and early, scoring 3 goals within the first 10 minutes of the game, New York "rallied" back, scoring & knotting up the game after 3 un answered goals. Two of the goals, questionable, as well as MANY calls in general, throughout, for BOTH teams. A blatent missed call on Callahan when he hi-sticked Zubrus in the face, drawing blood. How in Gods name THAT wasnt a penalty, is beyond me. While on the topic of Callahan, his 'goal', and I quote the word 'goal' because it was a real big turning point in the game. What most will believe was a kicking motion, the referee's thought otherwise. I can only begin to imagine how many fans were at home screaming at their television sets when the goal was allowed. Captain Cally's goal was the lone goal scored in the middle period, a mere 32 seconds in, would bring the Rangers to within one of the ...
BEST OF MAXIM
One of the NHL's accepted truisms is that Ilya Kovalchuk is a preeminent sniper.
The fact he's scored 406 goals in 779 games, including nine consecutive seasons of 30 or more goals, is proof enough that Kovalchuk knows how to put the puck in the back of the net.
But the biggest play Kovalchuk made in the Devils' 5-3 win over the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern...
Facing a potentially catastrophic collapse at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night, the New Jersey Devils instead turned Game 5 into an inspirational victory and a 3-2 lead in the series. With a victory over the New York Rangers Friday at Prudential Center, the Devils would advance to the Stanley Cup Final against the Los Angeles Kings. "It's a good feeling,"...
Mike Rupp isn't on the ice to score goals. He's on the ice to stir the pot. Well, consider the pot stirred. Rupp looked like a man on a mission when he took the ice with the Rangers trailing 3-0 in the third period of Monday's Game 4. He roughed up Steve Bernier at the faceoff circle, dropped Peter Harrold behind the net and gave Anton Volchenkov a decent push. Rupp&...
This was a commercial that I saw on the NHL Network tonight, it was the first time that I had seen it. Former Fighting Sioux forwards Zach Parise and Travis Zajac are one win away from putting three former Fighting Sioux players in the Stanley Cup Finals. Also, when the Stanley Cup is presented after the cup clinching game, an "American" Captain will accept the Stanley...
Last night the New Jersey Devils came out flying, capitalized on some scoring chances early and didn't look back as they went on to defeat the Rangers 4-1 to tie the series at two wins a piece. Here are some notes on the game.
- I'll start with the Pete DeBoer - John Tortorella incident as that's what is getting all the talk right now. From DeBoer's perspective...

Duh! I wonder if Sid has even been to a hockey game lately? I always get a kick out of Sid Hartman's writings - although hockey has never been a strong subject for Sid. Of course Parise would look better along side Mikael Granlund and or Mikko Koivu for that matter. There are probably 25-29 teams that are interested in...
from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, The franchise may be set to crumble around them but the New Jersey Devils are one win away from their first Stanley Cup final since 2003 because the Lou Lamoriello Way prevailed.
Oh, there were some tough years for the Devils general manager since he guided them to three NHL championships and one Cup final in the years between 1995 and 2003...
The Los Angeles Kings await. But the New Jersey Devils still have some work to do. Sixth-seeded New Jersey is within one win of going back to the finals for the first time since the Devils won their third Stanley Cup in 2003. After blowing a 3-0 lead and then pulling out a 5-3 victory over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night, the Devils can wrap it up...
Did anyone predict the Devils would be playing for the Stanley Cup?
Doug MacLean and Jeff Marek of Sportsnet with heap praise on the New Jersey Devils.
Last night the New Jersey Devils jumped out to a 3-0 lead, allowed the New York Rangers to come back and tie it, and then regrouped to come away with a 5-3 win to take a 3-2 series lead. Here are some notes on what turned out to be a very odd, yet eventful, game.
- Though the Devils have to be thrilled they went into Madison Square Garden with the series tied, and walked away...
