5 Devils things you need to know today; Reid Boucher, Stefan Matteau returning?

They're dead, then their not. They’re dead, then they not. That’s been the outside perception of the Devils, whose playoff chances seemingly rose from the dead once again Friday night with their 2-1 win over Washington that Jaromir Jagr called the best of the season coupled with Columbus losing at home to Chicago. The updated Eastern Conference wild card standings has...

Jagr Not Happy With Line Change

from Dave Hutchinson of the Star Ledger, After a pair of two-game auditions (four games total) on the first line with Jagr and Zajac, rookie Reid Boucher was sent down to AHL Albany on Wednesday and replaced by rookie call-up Joe Whitney this morning.

Devils send rookie winger Reid Boucher back to minors

Reid Boucher's 62 goals last season in the Ontario Hockey League didn’t translate into instant success in the NHL. The Devils gave the rookie winger chance after chance after chance to produce in his first NHL stint, but 23 games of opportunity, including four on the top line, led to just three goals and seven points.

Reid Between The Lines, Boucher Can Score

Reid Boucher (1 G, 4 SOG, +1) is a pure sniper in every sense of the word. Hockey word, that is. His shot is as quick as it is accurate and it’s bloody quick. Last year Boucher potted 62 goals in just 68 games, breaking Steven Stamkos’ club record for goals in a season with 60 back in 2011-2012. How’s that for a pedigree? Dude’s leaving broken Stamkos goal scoring records...

Game 29: Devils Fail in Shootout..AGAIN!!

  I think the most frustrating part about the Devils/Canadiens matchup was that the Devils were right there, ready to skate away with 2 points and somehow the Canadiens were able to answer right back after the Devils took a 3-2 lead with just over a minute to play. In OT the Devils had their chances but couldn’t fire it home. On the plus side, the Canadiens had their chances...
