- Last night was by no means a good night for the Devils, but it was even worse for David Clarkson. Clarkson was minus-3 and 0-for-8 in the face-off circle in j...
BEST OF MAXIM
The New Jersey Devils have recalled defenseman Peter Harrold from Albany of the AHL.

The Devils also announced that University of Michigan center David...
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy will miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Tuesday. Lovejoy injured the knee in the first period of a 5-2 win over New Jersey on Sunday. The injury means Lovejoy would likely miss Pittsburgh's first-round playoff series.
Coach Dan Bylsma says defenseman Kris Letang will not play on Tuesday against...

The Rangers currently lead the Penguins by a single point, both with seven games remaining in the season.
