Burns Elected To The Hall of Fame … FINALLY!!

The NHL Hall of Fame Selection Committee finally got something right. The sad part is that it came years after it should have. Recently, former Devils coach Pat Burns was elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame. He will be inducted on Nov 17, 2014. Burns had reached Hall of Fame eligibility in 2007 but had been passed over every year until now. Sadly Pat Burns lost his battle with cancer...

What To Make Of Martin Brodeur

We watched yesterday as Brodeur earned his 688th win in what could turn out to be his last game for the New Jersey Devils and quite possibly the last game in his career. Despite the Devils inability to reach the playoffs for the second straight year, fans at The Rock stood and cheered as the entire team raised their sticks at center ice in appreciation of their fans. A few of Brodeur’s...

Game 63 Recap: Late Tip Equals Devils Win

Today is the day we find out whether or not Martin Brodeur will finish out his contract with the New Jersey Devils or get moved to another team to finish out that contract and if he ends up moving to a different team, then we watched Brodeur play his last game as a Devil against the team he got his first cup against. Marty played a decent game but he was lucky to get the win in regulation...

Devils Top Leafs, Hope Still Alive

When you get to the final weeks of the season and you are staring at the possibility of packing up your locker and waiting until September to play another game once you’ve finished game #82, all that matters between now and then are wins. And in the case of the NJ Devils, wins in regulation matter the most. The Leafs are slumping and the Devils need to put something together in...

Coyotes Hand Devils 9th Shootout Loss

The Devils continue to frustrate their fans in my opinion. Truth is, last night could have been worse and the Devils could have walked away from that game without any points. The Devils played a pretty poor first period and I didn’t think they improved much until the 2nd half of the 2nd period where the Devils seem to stop chasing the Coyotes, stopped taking unnecessary penalties...

It all depends on what is on the table, whether it’s in New Jersey or somewhere else. I’m open-minded about it. I’m looking for specific things some teams probably can’t give me. And that’s understandable at my age. But if I feel I can play and people want me, we’ll see. - Marty Brodeur on possibly testing Free Agency this summer

Zajac Gets Tricky Against Panthers

However this season may play out, Travis Zajac vs the Florida Panthers on March 31, 2014 is going to be a game to highlight from the 2013/2014 season. Some nights, as a player, you get the bounces to go your way. Sometimes the puck is just drawn to you stick like metal to a magnet. Sometimes, the game just seems slower to you and you’re able to make those extra little moves with...

Islanders Hand NJ Yet Another Shootout Loss

Let’s start with what everyone is sure to talk about. On October 4th the Devils lost their home opener in a shootout to the New York Islanders where the Devils scored zero times in 6 attempts. On March 29th the Islanders handed the Devils their 10th straight shootout loss where the Devils scored, you guessed it, zero times in the shootout but this time NJ only got 2 attempts at...

Despite Win NJ Still Needs To Address Issues

The Devils were excellent in their 5-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. Henrique stepped up his game last night, much like I wrote about wanting him to prior to the game and much like I hope to see him do in this stretch run. Enough can’t be said about Jagr’s goal in the 1st and his determination not to give up on that play. Would love that work ethic translate...

Is Henrique A Key To Winning?

Adam Henrique currently ranks 3rd on the team with 14 goals, 7th on the team with 13 assists and 6th on the team in overall points with 27. Not exactly a player that has been putting the Devils on his shoulders and carrying them this season. Especially when you consider that Henrique he has only 2 games with multiple points this season and neither of those being multiple goal games...

Devils Tinker Lines In Order To Spark Offense

A lot of attention has been paid to the Devils lack of ability to get the puck in the net. Of course this issue has hit full stride after back to back loses where the Devils blew a 1 goal lead late in the game only to watch that all important 2nd point get away from them in OT. On Friday it was a 3-2 loss in Nashville which was followed by a 2-1 loss at home to Colorado on Monday...

Devils Blow Another Lead Late, Lose in OT

When the season comes to a close in April and the Devils are on the outside looking in, one could absolutely point to the horrible shoot-out record this year (0-8) and specifically, these last 2 games where the Devils had 2 points in their reach and only walked away with 1 point in each game. When fighting for a playoff position, every point is crucial but the Devils are a mediocre...

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...
