This Valentine’s Day I spent a nice romantic evening with New Jersey Devils hockey. Just a day after a third-period power boost pushed the Devils passed the Detroit Red Wings, the Devils headed south to face the Carolina Hurricanes. The Devils found themselves victorious in Carolina once this season. But unfortunately, Friday wouldn’t add victory

Game Preview Taking a look at the final score of last night’s game, it seems like the New Jersey Devils convincingly won 4-1 over the Detroit Red Wings. Anyone who watched the game saw that the Devils were outplayed by the NHL’s worst team for the game’s first 40 minutes. This, before finally showing up
It looked like the New Jersey Devils had something going for them. Granted, they had a few overtime losses that should have been wins, but the point-streak they brought into Tuesday night’s game was encouraging. Instead, the Florida Panthers once again had to the deal the Devils a heartbreaking loss on home ice. After a
Yesterday, I looked at the prospect of the New Jersey Devils sending pending unrestricted free agent defenseman Sami Vatanen to the Chicago Blackhawks. It seems all but certain Vatanen will be dealt before the NHL Trade Deadline, and there are sure to be a number of teams wanting his services. It’s up to the Devils
Most New Jersey Devils fans still remember the day a few short seasons ago when we woke up to find out that our beloved Adam Henrique was shipped off to the Anaheim Ducks. Mr. It’s Over was trading places with defenseman Sami Vatanen, as the Devils vied for a playoff spot for the first time

After a long layoff, the New Jersey Devils were back in action Monday night. We went over a week without Devils’ hockey. However, this meant we didn’t have to watch the Devils lose for over a week. New Jersey barely got the win in what was – for the most part – an enjoyable game.
And just like that, the Devils’ mini but impressive win streak ended on Tuesday night. A high flying Toronto Maple Leafs team took the victory, as the Devils were seeking their third straight. The Devils put together a push as the third period ran down, but it was way too little and way too late.
Last night as the New Jersey Devils took the ice against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Prudential Center, I was stuck at an airport in Florida. Ironically enough, I was in Tampa Bay Lightning territory (well kind of, it was Orlando). With my flight delayed and every TV in the airport lounge turned to the
After a thrilling 5-1 win against the Washington Capitals last night, the New Jersey Devils return home to face a white-hot Tampa Bay Lightning squad. Looking at this weekend’s forecast, it looks like the Lightning brought a bit of that that Florida weather with them. Some say it’s “global warming,” I say it’s “hockey magic.”
