But will it change anything?
We’ve often been handed the excuse that it’s not about how you start but rather how you finish. After last year’s frustrating season that ended with the Devils being a few points out of a playoff spot, I think it’s safe to say that your start, middle and end are extremely important. At times, the […]
The first thought that comes to mind after the Devils 6-4 victory over the Flyers is “roller coaster ride.” With the Devils leading 3-0 through 35 minutes of play, it looked as if a victory in Philadelphia wasn’t going to be tough to get but then the Flyers started coming. By the end of the […]
Here we go, the New Jersey Devils 2014-15 season is about to get underway and do so in a very familiar place. The Devils have met the Philadelphia Flyers 225 times in the regular season with the Flyers leading the series 107-100-18. The last time the Devils met the Flyers to open their season was […]
A long month of training camp has come to an end and the New Jersey Devils now prepare for the 201-15 season which gets underway against Philadelphia on Thursday night. There have been a few expected moves throughout training camp and a few surprises as well. Here are all my thoughts on the past month […]
Here is the Devils’ complete training camp roster, which was released this morning: Goaltenders 1 Keith Kinkaid 31 Scott Wedgewood 35 Cory Schneider 40 Scott Clemmensen 55 Maxime Clermont 60 Anthony Brodeur Skaters 2 Marek Zidlicky D 5 Adam Larsson D 6 Andy Greene D 7 Jon Merrill D 8 Dainius Zubrus LW 9 Martin […]
Puck Daddy has been running this summer series called “Puck Daddy’s Most Disappointing Summer Series” where you talk about your team and the biggest disappointments throughout your franchise’s history. Being that it’s August and not much going on, I thought this was a great thing to do about the Devils, especially since I haven’t seen […]
This is the part of the summer that you really start to hate. We are far enough removed from the daily grind of the NHL playoffs that we actually miss watching hockey, which is amplified as a Devils fan since they missed the playoffs. But we are far enough away from training camp that there […]
For years the NHL preached about the need for parity within the league and I am certainly one to believe that the NHL has reached that goal. Some teams get better, some teams get worse and then come the following summer each team gets to do it all over again. Let’s look at the Metropolitan […]
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 […]
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 […]
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
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. […]

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 […]
