New Jersey Devils
Local rivalries. Frigid temperatures. The clack of the sticks. Hockey in the Bronx?
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.
Craig Anderson made 33 saves in his third shutout of the season, and the Ottawa Senators sent the sliding New Jersey Devils to their ninth straight loss with a 2-0 victory Friday night.
Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov was suspended for four games by the NHL for elbowing Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand in the head.
Gregory Campbell scored twice in a three-goal first period and the Boston Bruins regained first place in the Northeast Division with a 5-4 victory over the reeling New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night.
The New Jersey Devils are on the outside looking in at a playoff spot thanks to a seven-game winless streak (0-3-4) that has left them two points behind both the Rangers and Islanders for eighth place in the Eastern Conference.
“Yankee Stadium and Dodger Stadium are being discussed as possible venues with the Kings and Rangers as host teams, according to two league executives and a television executive familiar with the planning,” Newsday wrote on Monday night.
Brooklyn will get a look at its future NHL franchise in September, when the Islanders play the Devils in a preseason tilt at Barclays Center.
In the majority of losses during this stretch, the Devils have outworked their opponents. What they’re missing is Kovalchuk’s magic touch.
The New Jersey Devils’ losing streak now stands at seven games, after the Buffalo Sabres scored the only goal in a shootout Sunday night and beat the Devils 3-2.
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.
Jaromir Jagr’s first goal in a Boston uniform was not one he will brag about at the end of his Hall of Fame career. It was all the Bruins needed to win in his debut, though.
A 38-year-old left wing, Sullivan started his NHL career with the Devils, playing parts of two seasons in New Jersey from 1995-97.
The Devils went 0-0-3 on their three-game road trip last week, losing shootouts to both Ottawa and Tampa Bay and falling in overtime to Florida.
