Found May 12, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
With the New Jersey Devils having so many days off before their first game of the Eastern Conference Finals, which will be played Monday regardless of who wins between New York and Washington tonight, I decided to change things up and answer any Devils questions you had. Yesterday I asked that you post, tweet or email me your questions and quite a few of you did so. Without further ado, here is th...

USA's Alex Goligosky boarded by Finland's Anssi Salmela (Video)

At the IIHF World Championship hockey tournament, Finland's Anssi Salmela was ejected for drilling USA's Alex Goligosky into the boards from behind during the third period of Sunday's game, which USA won handily by a 5-0 score. The hit was so brutal that both announcers said "Oh my goodness!" at the same time. Goligosky was OK afterwards and stayed in...

Rangers-Devils renew rivalry, Cup berth on line

It's been 18 years since Stephane Matteau forever etched his name into hockey history with a wraparound goal that launched the New York Rangers-New Jersey Devils rivalry well beyond just a common border war. Matteau ended Game 7 of the 1994 Eastern Conference finals with an unlikely goal in double overtime, beating goalie Martin Brodeur and the Devils and sending the Rangers...

New Jersey Devils resting Zidlicky, Volchenkov

  After two rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the New Jersey Devils can welcome a couple days of relative rest and relaxation as they await the start of the Eastern Conference Finals against either the New York Rangers or Washington Capitals.  With the seventh game of that series not scheduled until Saturday, it gives the Devils some extra time to not only sharpen their game...

Opponent’s scouting report: Martin Brodeur

Marty, Marty Marty….our old nemesis.  We’ve been at this a long time.  Ever since you were kind enough to give us MATTEAU! MATTEAU!, back in the ’94 playoffs.  Marty Brodeur has had an unbelievable career and added plenty of fire and arrogant attitude to the rivalry the past 18 years or so.  He holds many of the NHL’s goaltending records and is a sure fire first-ballot...

Eastern Conference Finals Preview

While divisional foes Los Angeles and Phoenix are on the verge of their first all-time playoff meeting, Hudson River rivals New York and New Jersey will be taking part in their sixth series since first meeting in the 1992 postseason. The Devils have lost four of the five previous head to head matchups, including the epic 1994 Mark Messier-driven Eastern Conference finals. Like 1994...

Alex Goligoski boarded by Ansi Salmela

This is a dirty and unnecessary hit by Finnish defenseman Anssi Salmela on USA Defenseman Alex Goligoski during yesterday's game at the World Championship, which the Americans won 5-0. Salmela was given a five minute major and a game misconduct and will probably face supplemental discipline. I like the fact that there is no hesitation from the IIHF official in calling a penalty...

Todd Cordell: Taking your New Jersey Devils questions: 11/05//12

The NHL announced yesterday that Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers/Washington Capitals will be played Monday at 8 Eastern Time, meaning the Devils will have a total of six days off before that game.

Talking Devils/Coyotes Stanley Cup Final

from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News, Of all the teams remaining in the 2012 NHL playoffs, the New Jersey Devils are the most offense-minded. I’ll pause for a second while that sinks in. You heard me right. The franchise least associated with a thrilling brand of hockey has become the lone on-ice answer to the drone-like defensive systems employed to varying degrees by the Washington...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Packing Up

Locker cleanout day is never much fun. The sting of the Flyers' playoff defeat at the hands of the New Jersey Devils has not had time to truly give way to optimism about next season. This was a Philadelphia team that appeared capable of least getting to the Eastern Conference Finals if not coming out of the East. Here were the major and minor items to come out of yesterday...
