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. […]

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 have acquired forward Tuomo Ruutu from the Carolina Hurricane for center Andrei Loktionov. and a conditional third-round pick in 2017. Loktionov had 4 goals for NJ while Ruutu has 5 goals but carrys a hefty contract of 2 years at 4.75 per with him.  Don't like this deal AT ALL

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]
