The new NHL comes to life when the puck drops on Tuesday night. Four brand spanking new divisions (some with geographically confusing names) will be introduced. From there, it should be chaos as usual.
While other teams made the most of the lockout-shortened season, the New Jersey Devils missed the playoffs a year after making the Stanley Cup finals. There were injuries. There were slumps. It was not pretty.
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.
The Devils officially opened training camp for their veterans Wednesday at the Prudential Center. Martin Brodeur and Jaromir Jagr are finally teammates in New Jersey.
Martin Brodeur thinks the Devils are over Ilya Kovalchuk’s sudden departure to the KHL.
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.
Devils winger Jaromir Jagr hinted on Facebook that this might be his last NHL season.
Here’s the remarkable thing about Jagr: he’s been able to adapt over the years to remain a useful top-six forward at the age of 41.
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.
The Devils have reportedly lured a legend to New Jersey. According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, the Devils and Jaromir Jagr have agreed to a one-year contract.
Jagr’s wait to return to the Finals has taken him beyond 20 years. Here’s to hoping that he makes the most of his opportunity and turns back the clock by making a big impact for the Bruins at the big dance.
It’s not about a coach forcing a style of play down his players’ throats. Those days are over. That’s the lesson of John Tortorella’s painful regime.
I hope you stayed up to watch the double overtime finish. Game 3 between the Bruins and Penguins had all the hallmarks of what makes playoff hockey truly remarkable.
This series is going to be won in the corners and the dirty areas of the ice. It will be a grind-it-out kind of series that will have John Tortorella’s men licking their chops.
Josh Bailey scored twice and the New York Islanders added another big win in their surge toward the playoffs by beating the Boston Bruins 2-1 on Thursday night.
