After a convincing win over the Washington Capitals on Friday, the New Jersey Devils went into Long Island yesterday and were shutout by rookie goaltender Anders Nilsson, and the New York Islanders. Here are some notes on that game, Zach Parise, Adam Larsson and more..
- First off, I'd like to congratulate Anders Nilsson on picking up the first win and shutout of his young NHL career. He wasn't...

New Jersey Devils captain Zach Parise is dealing with a sore left hand following Sunday's 1-0 loss to the New York Islanders.
"(X-rays) showed nothing," Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello told Newark Star-Ledger on Monday. "It's just soreness."
Although Parise insisted that "it's OK" to the newspaper on Sunday, the team exercised caution...
New Jersey Devils captain Zach Parise will play in Tuesday's game against the Atlantic Division rival New York Rangers.

The 17th overall pick of the 2003 draft, Parise collected 27 goals, 29 assists and 28 penalty minutes in 65 games this season.
David Clarkson and Ryan Carter scored 1:54 apart early in the third period, and the New Jersey Devils' slumbering offense broke out in a 4-1 victory over the NHL-leading New York Rangers on Tuesday night.
Clarkson tipped Petr Sykora's hard drive past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist at 2:27 to give the Devils their second lead of the game, and Carter pushed New Jersey ahead...
A red mark ran from Zach Parise's mouth toward his right ear after Friday's game, the result of a collision with the stick of Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich.
The Devils' captain had already recorded his second career hat trick when he was forced to the locker room for a league-mandated concussion evaluation in the second period. He was soon cleared and returned...

from Dave Caldwell of the New York Times, Lou Lamoriello, the Devils’ general manager, said: “There’s no question he’s a decided asset to our team. He’s fit in. He’s a team player and he’s one of our core players. That’s the best thing you can say about a player. I would have been extremely disappointed if you make a trade like that and a player with the character...
The past 7 days of Devils hockey was, well, in a sense, hellish. New Jersey had a 1-2-1 record in 4 games played against 4 very difficult NHL clubs in the Rangers, Bruins, Capitals, and Islanders yesterday afternoon. The Devils one victory would be the third game of the week after losing two straight; an Atlantic Division rival matchup between the Rangers in MSG, in which the game...
The Islanders head into a three-day break with a 1-0 win over the New Jersey Devils. Islander rookie goaltender Anders Nilsson earned his first career NHL win and stopped 25 shots in the shootout.
It would take until the second period for either side to put a point on the board. At the 2:39 mark of the second period, Kyle okposo was able to fire a shot past the glove of Martin Brodeur...

That's right, it's Bridgeport call-up Anders Nilsson who gets the nod today between the pipes for the Isles vs. Devils 3 pm start.
Anders isn't the only Sound Tiger to get the call either. Aaron Ness has been recalled on emergency basis as Mark Eaton and Dylan Reese are both questionable for today's tilt. Also sitting again is most likely Michael Grabner. ...
It's been more than three months since the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders faced off.
The Atlantic Division rivals will see plenty of each other over the next week.
The Devils go for their fourth straight victory at Nassau Coliseum on Sunday when the Islanders try to put together a rare set of back-to-back wins in the first of three consecutive games against New Jersey...
