Running With The Devils:
This week the Devils played 3 games in the Friday to Thursday stretch. We watched them finish up a 4 game road trip in Winnipeg on Saturday afternoon where they won 2-1 and then returned home to face the same Jets on Tuesday night where they won 5-1. That was followed up by a 4-1 loss to the Bruins at home last night but Devin will have a more in depth coverage of these games in his Second Look column coming up on Monday.
Ilya Kovalchuk – I have to start with him because he’s starting to turn heads around the NHL. Offensively he is finally starting to resemble the guy that played in Atlanta.

He has 7 goals in his last seven games, and five two-point games over the same span but it is his sudden defensive element that is allowing Peter Deboer to trust throwing Kovalchuk out on the ice in all types of situations.

Seconds before Nathan Hornton’s 17th goal of the season on the power play at 7:10 of the third period broke a 1-all tie, the Boston winger knocked into Matt Taormina at the blue line, sending the...
It wasn’t pretty, but the Bruins were once again dominant in the final period, scoring four unanswered goals in the third to beat the New Jersey Devils, 4-1.
Petr Sykora got the Devils on the board late in the first, beating Tim Thomas to give the Devils a 1-0 lead after the first 20, but Thomas was a mystery that New Jersey could not solve from that point on.
The second period...
