New Jersey comes into the week with a record of 0-3-3, having failed to pick up a win during the first six games of a season for the first time in Devils history.
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 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.
There will be a ton of pressure on Adam Henrique to step forward and be a key player for the Devils in 2013-14.
While caught off-guard by star forward Ilya Kovalchuk’s decision to retire from the NHL and return home to Russia, New Jersey Devils coach Pete DeBoer said his team’s job this season is to prove doubters wrong.
The Devils announced the stunning news in a statement, saying that Kovalchuk had alerted general manager and president Lou Lamoriello earlier this year that he wanted to return home with his family after 11 seasons in the NHL.
The most likely scenario for Clarkson isn’t Ottawa or Edmonton. It’s Toronto.
Elias, who is 37-years old, was set to become an unrestricted free agent.
The Devils and alternate captain Patrik Elias are nearing a new deal according to the Star-Ledger.
Patrik Elias scored his 375th NHL goal, Martin Brodeur made 19 saves for his 669th victory and the New Jersey Devils earned a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.
The New Jersey Devils were eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday with their 4-1 loss to the Rangers. It is the second time in the last three seasons that the Devils will not be in the postseason.
Patrik Elias scored twice and the New Jersey Devils kept with faint playoff hopes alive by rallying from a two-goal deficit for a 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers Saturday.
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.
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.
