Driven DeBoer delivers Devils back to NHL's elite

Peter DeBoer, in the eyes of many, was a surprise choice as the next coach of the New Jersey Devils. Fresh off the franchise's worst season in recent memory, Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello last summer turned to DeBoer to rescue a team that was low on morale, lower on scoring punch and desperate for a new identity. But why DeBoer? In three seasons with Florida, he could...

Motivated "Redemption Line" lifting Kings

Early March losses in Columbus and Detroit on consecutive nights could have sunken this Los Angeles team after months of treading water in the gut of the Western Conference. The second loss was particularly deflating. Against an injury-riddled Red Wings team, the Kings surrendered a late third period lead on a quick succession of plays that left Mike Richards exasperated at both...

Gagne back at practice, enjoying Kings' success

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Simon Gagne thought the Los Angeles Kings would be a Stanley Cup contender. That's why he signed with them as a free agent last summer. Gagne's projection was correct. He just wishes he had played a bigger role in it. The high-scoring forward hasn't played for the Kings since Dec. 26, when he suffered his latest concussion. It's been bittersweet...

Vote: Will Devils or Kings Win the Stanley Cup?

And then there were two. With the Devils defeating the Rangers in Game 6 on Friday night, this year's Stanley Cup Final is set, and it should be an entertaining series.

LA Kings rested for Cup final meeting with Devils

Justin Williams and the Los Angeles Kings realize the Stanley Cup playoffs aren't usually as easy as they've made them look so far. The Kings say they've prepared for lengthy series in every round of the postseason, but they haven't even had to play a Game 6 yet. Los Angeles went on a 12-2 rampage through the Western Conference playoffs, earning a date with the...

Parise and Zajac never played together at UND

NJ.COM This seems to be a common historical point of discussion – but incorrect – while it’s true that Zach Parise and Travis Zajac both played their collegiate hockey for the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux – Parise and Zajac never played together. It never happened; this could be cleared up by doing a simple search on Google. So it would be impossible for...

Playoff Preview Party - Know Your Stanley Cup Final Opponent: New Jersey Devils

Oh... this is happening, people. When Brigitte from One Girl, One Puck started writing her Know Your Opponent series for The Royal Half just 2 1/2 months ago... I had no idea that her record when she previewed the opposing teams in the most sexist, objectifying way would be 5-1. (Curse you, regular season game against Vancouver!) So basically what I'm saying is that if...
