No team has ever come back from 0-2 deficits in back-to-back series in NHL history. If there’s ever a team that might do it, it’s Tortorella’s prideful Rangers.
With Ilya Kovalchuk on the mend and stars slumping, it’s imperative Devils GM Lou Lamoriello acquires a veteran scorer before the April 3 trade deadline.
I ask Rangers fans to carefully examine which side of the fence they’re on. Ridding of Tortorella before season’s end or in the summer would probably set the Rangers back a decade.
Martin Brodeur playfully asked what else he could have done for the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night, and coach Peter DeBoer had an idea. “If he would’ve got in a fight, he would’ve done a little bit of everything for us,” DeBoer said.
Should the Rangers not get the job done at Prudential Center, bigger questions will be asked of their underperforming stars, and the pressure will be tightened on John Tortorella. It’s up to the Blueshirts to bury their demons in New Jersey.
The player who couldn’t find his place in LA and was cast aside by the Kings is turning out to be the Devils’ treasure.
Ilya Kovalchuk capped New Jersey’s three-goal first period with his NHL-leading fourth short-handed goal, and the Devils beat the mistake-prone Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Nate Thompson scored twice and Martin St. Louis and rookie Alexander Killorn each had a goal and an assist as the Tampa Bay Lightning snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the struggling New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
Ilya Kovalchuk and the determined Devils have the fortitude needed to win the Atlantic and perhaps make another visit to the Stanley Cup finals.
New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer never worries when Ilya Kovalchuk goes into a goal-scoring drought. Kovalchuk gets his chances every game, and sooner or later the puck starts going in the net.
The Rangers were expected to be ready-made contenders straight out of the gates. So much for that.
A year after beating them in the Eastern Conference finals, the New Jersey Devils still have the New York Rangers’ number. The reasons haven’t changed, either.
Playing the New Jersey Devils has been a painful experience for New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano, even when he wins.
18-year-old Stefan Matteau unexpectedly made the Devils’ opening night roster. Now, he’s ready to make his mark with the Devils.
Who’s primed to lift the Stanley Cup at season’s end? Hartnett has readied his fearless NHL predictions for the 2013 season.
