Vote! New Jersey Devils Player of the Week: 1/19 – 1/25

The Devils have had a great first week so choosing this season’s first Player of the Week won’t be easy. Travis Zajac showed us exactly why the Devils signed him for another eight years by scoring the first goals of our first two games. David Clarkson scored two goals this week and is on pace for another 30+ goal scoring season. Martin Brodeur had his 10th shutout against the Philadelphia Flyers and his 120th career shutout – not to mention his 658th win. Ilya Kovalchuk scored two game winning goals, against both the Flyers and his memorable OT goal against the Washington Capitals. Patrick Elias is also having a great start to the season.

Time to vote, who do you think should be named our first Player of the Week?

Game 4 Recap – Breaking the Winning Hab-it: Devils 3 – Montreal 4 (OT)

New Jersey Devils vs Montreal Canadiens

The Devils suffered their first loss of the 2013 campaign as they fell to the Canadiens by a score of 4-3. The Devils were bit badly by their 4th straight sub-par 1st period as the Habs jumped out to an early 1-0 lead. Ryan White cashed in on a rebound after a strong start by Montreal for most of the first 3 minutes. The Devils were able to settle the game down, however defenseman Andy Greene made a bad turnover and star rookie Alex Galchenyuk fired a laser pass over to fellow rookie Brendan Gallagher who rifled the puck past Brodeur to give the home side a 2-0 lead. The Devils tried getting back into the game but were snake bitten by their own undisciplined play.

The Devils are entering tonight’s contest 3-0-0, despite needing overtime to beat the Washington Capitals.  The Montreal Canadiens are entering this game 2-1-0 and we all know this is going to be another exciting game to watch, as most are when we head to Montreal.  Last season the Devils won the season series 3-1, and Martin Brodeur shined as always when he visits his hometown.  This season the Devils will only play the Canadiens three times, and this is the only time up in Montreal.
