Overall, the Mets are 10 and 5 so far this season against NL East opponents. New York has not posted a winning record vs. their division rivals since 2008.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Sunday was the second victory in franchise history in which the Mets allowed a pair of game-tying home runs in the eighth inning or later.
Reyes appeared in 999 games at shortstop for the Mets, second only to Bud Harrelson (1,280) for the most in club history.
The Mets conclude their first road trip of 2012 with a three-game series against the Braves at Turner Field. New York took five out of nine against the Braves in Atlanta last season. It was just the third time that the Mets posted a winning record at Turner Field.
The Mets began their 2012 season with a three-game sweep of the rival Braves, their first-ever 3-0 start against a National League East opponent.
Opening Day will be the sixth in Mets history to be played on a Thursday. The Amazin’s are 5 and 0 all-time on Thursday openers, their best mark on any day of the week.
After missing the postseason last year, the Devils secured a playoff spot with their 5-0 win in Carolina this past Saturday — one of their latest “clinchers” ever.
With six games remaining in the regular season, the New Jersey Devils are six points away from clinching a spot in the postseason. And while one of their veteran goaltenders has been red-hot, the other has cooled off.
If the Devils return to the playoffs this spring, the extra points New Jersey has collected in overtimes and shootouts this season will be a major reason why.
A four-game winning streak is cause enough for celebration. But Martin Brodeur, Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise found a way to make it more special.
The Devils have cooled off after their post all-star break hot streak, entering the week with a 1-4-1 record over their last six games following a 9-1-1 stretch.
Lou Lamoriello got the jump on Monday’s NHL trading deadline as the Devils acquired Marek Zidlicky in a deal with the Wild Friday night.
The Devils are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games, led by Martin Brodeur, who is now 7 and 1 with a 1.72 goals against average since the All-Star break.
The Devils suffered their first regulation loss since the All-Star game, a 3-1 defeat against the Florida Panthers this past Saturday, giving New Jersey a 5-1-1 mark since the break.
The Devils have won four in a row since the NHL’s all-star break, thanks in great part to Kovalchuk.
