Devils Lose to the Penguins 4-1

I am so unbelievably pissed off right now, and it has very little to do with the way the Devils played or the score of the game. I’ve had the great misfortune to watch tonight’s game through the Pittsburgh feed. This means that I’ve been listening to a bunch of the worst commentators I’ve ever […]

Devils Get Bitten by the Sharks in a Game they Could’ve/Should’ve Won

Where do I even begin? This game had so many ups and downs I’m sure that I’m officially bipolar after watching it. Unfortunately, it ended on a low note with the Devils losing their first shootout of three consecutive shootouts. The bane of the Devils’ play in recent years had reared its ugly head in […]

Game 4: Devils Comeback Against Predators

The way this game started, I really thought I was going to sit through another game like we played against the Flyers to open the season. Thankfully the Devils would end up clawing their way back into this game but we will get to that. I thought the Devils came out with some jump and […]

Devils Defeat the Kings 2-1 in a Shootout

As you’ve probably surmised from the title, the Devils won their first OT contest of the season (a shootout) against the LA Kings. It’s nice to know that the Devils can perform well enough 4 on 4 and in a shootout to eek out a victory, but, in my opinion, this game should have never […]

Kings vs. Devils In-Game Notes

Pregame: Who is this Deb Placey chick? I understand that she used to announce the Islander games. I mean, really, what do the Devils need the Islanders’ sloppy seconds for? Wasn’t there a retired Devil available to sit with Dano, or at least someone with a modicum of hockey knowledge??? Was Steve’s hair slicked back […]

Thoughts on David Clarkson

I’ve said a lot of negative things lately about David Clarkson and honestly, I’ve meant every one of them. I can see by a number of emails that I have received that there are people out there that completely agree with me and would love to see the next Devils headline be something about Clarkson […]

Game 2: Devils Survive The Hurricanes

I can honestly say I was a little worried going into this game. Actually, scratch that, I was a lot worried. My biggest fear was watching this team lose in regulation and starting the season 0-2-0. We keep talking about last season’s horrible start but that was an 0-1-1 start at this juncture. This doesn’t […]

Devils Lose a Frustrating Season Opener 3-0 to the Flyers

  Ick. Where to begin? For those of you who didn’t watch the game…you didn’t miss anything worth watching and the score says it all. Sure, teams lose and teams win, and the Devils aren’t exactly known to dominate their opponents on opening night. But this one really sucks. Not only were the Devils shutout […]
