Kovalchuk scored his first goal since suffering a shoulder injury last month, giving the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Penguins.
The Devils exited the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference way earlier than they hoped and expected.
Ilya Kovalchuk is returning to the New Jersey Devils’ lineup for Saturday’s game against the Florida Panthers.
The New Jersey Devils’ playoff hopes have dwindled as a result of a tailspin that has now matched the fourth-longest winless streak in club history.
The past few weeks have made it blindingly clear that Devils head coach Pete DeBoer is stuck with a group of players who collectively have the skill, but not the talent required to reach the playoffs.
James Reimer made 31 saves, and Phil Kessel snapped a scoreless tie late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 2-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night, despite recording only 12 shots.
Saturday’s clash may be the most important regular-season meeting between the Rangers and Islanders in 10 years. And a defeat for either team could come with pitfalls.
In the majority of losses during this stretch, the Devils have outworked their opponents. What they’re missing is Kovalchuk’s magic touch.
Rookie Leo Komarov and Tyler Bozak scored and the Toronto Maple Leafs extended the reeling New Jersey Devils’ losing streak to six games with a 2-1 victory on Saturday night.
The Devils have slipped to seventh in the conference after a four-game losing streak and lead the rival Rangers and Islanders by a mere two points.
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.
Mika Zibanejad scored the winner in the shootout to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Monday.
Lou Lamoriello has announced that star scorer Ilya Kovalchuk will miss 2-4 weeks after suffering a right shoulder injury.
Travis Zajac set up two goals, and the New Jersey Devils rode another solid performance by Martin Brodeur to a 2-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.
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.
