Had John Tortorella allowed offensively-gifted players to express themselves — he might’ve lifted the Stanley Cup down The Canyon of Heroes and been universally loved by Rangers fans.
Jaromir Jagr had a goal and two assists, and the New Jersey Devils scored four goals in the third period of a 5-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night.
The Devils are fully behind head coach Pete DeBoer — and it showed on Saturday night as they outworked the Rangers to a 4-0 victory.
Freshly acquired goaltender Cory Schneider has barely gotten a taste of life with the Devils, but he already understands exactly what his new organization is all about.
Lundqvist would probably trade in all of his endorsement deals, give away closets full of designer suits and hand over the keys to his Maserati in an instant if it meant he could take one sip from Lord Stanley’s Cup.
Next time the wheel comes around, Stepan is going to get paid. Big-time. His offensive game will flourish under new head coach Alain Vigneault.
The Devils have given Henrique the keys to their car because they know he won’t crash it. Heck, he won’t even put a dent in the Devils’ red Mercedes, and will take pride in waxing it monthly.
The New Jersey Devils have re-signed center Adam Henrique to a new multi-year contract. Henrique will enter his third NHL season in September, and will be counted on heavily on a team light on offense.
The New Jersey Devils have signed forward Jaromir Jagr to make up for some of the scoring lost with the recent retirement of Ilya Kovalchuk.
There will be a ton of pressure on Adam Henrique to step forward and be a key player for the Devils in 2013-14.
A week after the New Jersey Devils lost star forward Ilya Kovalchuk to sudden retirement, general manager Lou Lamoriello is still plotting out the future of the Devils.
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.
