Game 29 Thoughts: Weathering The Storm

I guess I am turning into one of those fans that expects too much out of his team. The Devils spoiled me on Monday with the clinic that they put on against the Sabres but they came out in the first period looking like they might do it against the Hurricanes too. I thought that […]

GameDay 29: Hurricanes In The Forecast

Devils come home tonight and host the Carolina Hurricanes which is the first game of a five game homestand. I can’t say a lot of negative things about this team after the Buffalo game the other night and that scares me a little bit. The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (20-7-1) vs. the Carolina Hurricanes […]

2010 Vancouver Games: Which Devils Will Be There

It’s right around the corner so we might as well talk about it. As much as I wish every Devils player could go home and relax, refuel and get focused for the playoffs during the Olympic break, that’s not going to happen. There WILL be NJ Devils representing various countries at the 2010 Games in […]

Devils Put On A Clinic and Marty Ties Sawchuk

I couldn’t have asked for anything more from the New Jersey Devils last night. Congratulations to Marty Brodeur for tying the legendary Terru Sawchuk for career shutouts but we will get to that. First, some thoughts about the game. The Devils put on a clinic last night. You want to know how to win hockey […]

GameDay 28-NJ Visits Buffalo

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (19-7-1) @ the Buffalo Sabres (16-8-2). This is the second meeting of the season. The Last Devils Game: With the celebration of the 1995 Stanley Cup team, the Devils came out of the gate with emotions high. The problem was that the emotional lift didn’t carry them through the […]

Catching Up With The Devils

Thanksgiving weekend is usually a weekend reserved for a parade, some turkey and some pigskin but how about those Devils. They beat the Senators the night before Thanksgiving, took care of the Bruins in a shootout on Friday and destroyed the Islanders on Saturday. That makes for a very good holiday weekend. With the 6 points […]

Game 22: Ottawa Comes To Town

It’s rare that the New Jersey Devils are home at Thanksgiving but they play 10 of the next 12 games at the Rock, starting with the Ottawa Senators tonight. The New Jersey Devils (14-6-1) vs. the Ottawa Senators (12-6-3). This is the second meeting of the season. The Devils Last Game: It was a crazy […]

Game 21: As They Play The Stars

I don’t get to do this very often because getting to the TV for the drop of the puck at 7pm is impossible but since this game is in Dallas and kicking off at 8pm NJ time, I figured this was the best time to do… so as they play, come chat with us here….

Zubrus Out 4-6 Weeks

Dainius Zubrus suffered a hairline fracture of the patella (kneecap) on is right leg and will miss four to six weeks. Zubrus was injured when he blocked a shot from Nashville defenseman Kevin Klein 1:04 into the second period of Thursday night’s game. The force of the shot was so great that it broke Zubrus’ […]

Devils Week 7 Ups and Downs

Goalies:M. Brodeur – A Win, a loss and a shootout loss. I thought he played decently this week although I thought he made a mistake that allowed Philly to score their 3rd goal on Monday. Forwards: R. Pelley – Not averaging a lot of ice time but I think he picked up the slack on faceoffs […]

Game20 Recap: Devils Lose in Shootout

The Devils lose but get a point out of the trip to music city. One of these days I will get around to writing a piece about how much I hate the shootout and why it should just go away. I actually thought the Devils and the Predators played a pretty even game. Both teams […]

GameDay 20: Nashville Predators

The Devils head down to Nashville tonight to take on the Predators. I’ll be honest, I am pretty much an Eastern Conference kind of guy so I don’t pay that much attention to the Western Conference teams. If you look at the standings, the Preds certainly appear to be struggling although they beat the conference […]

Devils First Quarter Thoughts

With 19 games in the books for the New Jersey Devils, they are on the verge of completing the first quarter of their season. So I pose a question to the Devils fans who come here and read my thoughts on the Devils. What are the biggest surprises (the good, the bad and the ugly) […]

Game 19 Recap: Devils Lose, It Happens

The Devils lose, lets get over it. Actually, it’s kind of a relief because now the talk about records can stop and the Devils can focus on the things they are doing wrong, which even though they are 8-2-0 in the last 10, they are doing some things wrong..especially last night!! I am bummed about […]

Game 19 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers

Are the Devils really as good as their recent play is dictating or are they just playing over their heads? Maybe it’s a little of both? I’ve been loving how this team is playing together but at the same time I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. Tonight, the Devils head back out […]
