Found December 29, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
The Devils continued to build on what has become somewhat of anomaly with Saturday's win in that they've dominated the second game of back-to-backs while tired, but have struggled to win games while fresh. With the Devils' 2-1 win over the struggling Islanders they improved to 7-1-3 in the second half of back-to-backs this season. Adam Henrique and Travis Zajac scored for the Devils while Co...

Devils’ Travis Zajac Deflects Marek Zidlicky’s Slap Shot With His Face to Net Most Painful Game-Winning Goal (GIF)

Travis Zajac might never want to score a goal again after netting the most painful one of his career on Saturday night. The New Jersey Devils forward scored the go-ahead goal with 6:57 remaining in the third period as he deflected a Marek Zidlicky slap shot off his face and into the back of the net.

Blue Jackets 2, Devils 1: Beating ‘a legend’ in Martin Brodeur

As a New York Rangers fan growing up just outside New York, Blue Jackets right wing Cam Atkinson had a fervent love-hate relationship with the New Jersey Devils. That is, he had “the ultimate respect” for New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur, while loathing the Devils organization as one of the Rangers’ chief rivals. So what has happened in the past two games between the Blue...
