Don’t Count Out the 2012-2013 New Jersey Devils.

New Jersey Devils, Eastern Conference Finals
As a fan, I want articles about the Devils to have enthusiasm and passion. Lately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. I’ve read many “preview” articles about this season that have already written the Devils off. They read something like this…”I wouldn’t be surprised if the Devils didn’t make the playoffs.” This pessimism, as well as excuses for the disaster they predict is shameful. Perhaps it’s a case of setting the bar low so no one will be disappointed, but I believe that we should be expecting more from this Devils team. With good reason.

Solid Start to the Season: New Jersey Devils Beat the New York Islanders

New Jersey Devils vs New York Islanders

Many questions are looming for this season, however today’s win can hopefully ease the worry. With a shortened season New Jersey has to come out of the gate strong and today was a solid start. Brodeur’s age didn’t seem to matter as he looked sharp stopping 18 of 19 shots. He was quick and looked focused. As usual, Marty was positioning himself well and challenging the Islanders shooters.

Game 80 Recap: Islanders get Moosed (again)

New Jersey Devils vs New York Islanders

(headline by @tomheaney1)

Three stars of the game:

3rd star: Zach Parise (2 assists)

2nd star: Patrik Elias (1 goal, 1 assist)

1st star: Travis Zajac (Game winning goal)

Johan Hedberg entered Tuesday night’s game against the Islanders having allowed just one goal in two games against the Isles this season, so it seemed like a good decision by coach Pete DeBoer to start Hedberg on Tuesday.  “Moose” responded by stopping 19 of 20 shots he faced, and picked up his 17th win of the season.  The Devils didn’t play their best game by any stretch of the imagination, but it was enough to move up to 98 points, and actually close to within three points of fifth place Philadelphia with two games remaining.  Here’s how it all unfolded.

Game 76 Recap: Zajac, Devils still no match for the Penguins

 

New Jersey Devils vs Pittsburgh Penguins

Three stars of the game:

3rd star: Evgeni Malkin (Penguins – Goal, assist)

2nd star: Pascal Dupuis (Penguins – Goal, assist)

1st star:  Sidney Crosby (Penguins – Goal, assist)

Not even a good effort was enough to prevent another 5-2 score in a Devils-Penguins game.  The Devils did a lot of good things offensively on Sunday night against the Pens, but they couldn’t finish their chances, and defensive breakdowns haunted them in the end.  To summarize: the Devils are in a pretty significant slump right now all-around.  The good news: Travis Zajac is back, and he looked really good.  Here’s what happened.
