Let’s take a look, shall we?

Memorial at Championship Plaza for KHL Lokomotiv Yaroslavl

KHL Memorial at Championship PlazaAs many of you know, two former New Jersey Devils, Alexander Vasyunov and Karel Rachunek, were tragically killed in a plane crash on Wednesday, September 7th, along with 41 other members of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Kontinental Hockey League. In honor of these players and coaches, the New Jersey Devils fans are organizing a memorial in Championship Plaza near the statue.

The memorial will be held at 5pm on Friday, September 9th. Fans will be bringing posters, flowers and candles to pay their respects to players and coaches that meant so much to our sport. Please join them if you are available. The event will be held rain or shine, however, if you are planning on bringing posters or pictures, please take steps to preserve them from the elements. This is not only open to Devils fans, all hockey fans are welcome to join us.

On behalf of the Devils Army Generals, our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victims of this tragic accident.

Tweet To The Cup | Boston/Montreal Game 5 at Cryan’s

Where did you watch Game 5 of the Boston and Montreal series? If it wasn’t at Cryan’s in South Orange, you made the wrong choice. The Generals hosted a Tweet Up to watch the game last Thursday with all the usual festivities. There was hockey. There were prizes. There was even a Stanley Cup in attendance… kind of.

Kim with the Cup!

Tweet Ups are fun, that’s a given. But each Tweet Up gets better. There are a few regular attendee’s and always a few new faces. It’s a great way to meet and hang out with other hockey fans and enjoy a game. Since the Devils season has officially ended this is how we can get our playoff hockey fix! There’s still hockey to watch and there’s plenty to talk about. All the usual topics are covered – players, teams, stats. Then there are the unusual conversations about hockey hats and beards. (Kim and I decided that the Flyers need to clean up a bit, don’t you agree?)

The majority of us were rooting for Boston so the overtime win was pretty sweet! We also had a ton of give aways and a drawing to win an autographed Elias puck that people were pretty pumped about.

It was another successful Tweet Up. If you missed this one don’t worry, there will be more to come! We kind of really like this Tweet Up thing.

One of a Kind TweetUp: March 25th at McGoverns Tavern

Hockey This Week

In case you missed it, there was a pretty awesome TweetUp on Friday, March 25th! A great group of fans got together to watch the Devils play the Penguins at McGoverns Tavern in Newark, including some special guests… Does the name Ken Daneyko ring a bell?

Ken Daneyko was one of the fans on Friday – mingling with the group, talking hockey and watching the game. Of course he signed some autographs and took some pictures, too! We gave Daneyko a run down on Twitter and let him answer some fan submitted questions on our @DevilsGenerals account. In response to @21njdevils101, Daneyko’s favorite current Devil is a tie between Kovy and Parise, and said Marty has been a good buddy of his. Another fan, @DownGoesAvery, asked which current Devil/NHL player reminds Ken the most of himself. Daneyko tweeted back with, “No one, I’m one of a kind, but I’d have to say Mark Fraser.”

We also had the guys of Hockey This Week Radio Show do a live broadcast featuring our very own General Carlos, Chris Wassel of The Program and of course, Ken Daneyko. They talked about the Generals and what we’ve been up to, Zach Parise’s return coming up this Wednesday and why it’s okay to wear a Capitals shirt to a Devils game – hey, as long as it’s red!

Unfortunately, the Devils lost to the Penguins 1-0 in a shoot out, but we still had a great time! Thanks to McGoverns Tavern for letting a group of Devils fans watch their team on NCAA weekend! And of course, thanks to Hockey This Week and Ken Daneyko for stopping by and making this TweetUp one of a kind.
