Well, the Sabres finally delivered something mildly positive to bring a glimmer of hope to the fans of Buffalo. Remember, it’s just a glimmer. Buffalo has gotten 6 much needed points the last 3 game...
For New Jersey Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky, this offseason should be filled with a lot of time searching for a new home, because he should not be returning to the Devils next season. The free agent veteran had said many times at he wants to return to the garden state next year, but there are plenty of reasons why Lou Lamoriello should just let Zidlicky go. First...
The New Jersey Devils stole the show yesterday at the 2013 NHL Draft held at the Prudential Center in Newark. They traded away their first round draft pick to the Vancouver Canucks for goaltender Cory Schneider. With Schneider now coming to New Jersey it makes their goaltending situation for the future less questionable than before. The organization is extremely excited fo...

Who is Myles Bell?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Who is Myles Bell? I believe that was every New Jersey Devils fan's reaction when he was drafted in the sixth round, 160th overall, on Sunday. If you look up his stats from the past season, you will find that he was recently converted from defense to forward, he had 38 goals, 55 assists for a total of 93 points in just 69 games. That is A LOT of points for someone taken i...
As of midnight today, teams around the NHL are able to start talking to unrestricted free agents. With no deal being done yet for right winger David Clarkson, it is pretty much almost certain that he will not be returning to New Jersey next season. If he does choose to leave, the Devils will certainly need replace his scoring help on the wings. To be honest, I did not ...
The New Jersey Devils agreed with free agent power forward Ryane Clowe on a 5 year $24.25 million contract on Friday. When I woke up on Friday morning, checked twitter and I saw that the Devils were the front runners to sign Clowe because they knew that Clarkson was not coming back, I had mixed feelings. Not because I wanted Clarkson back because I certainly did not. ...
The Minnesota Wild took a 4-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday night, a night marked by Zach Parise’s first game against his former team. Last year’s lockout shortened season witnessed no interconference play prior to the Stanley Cup finals, so this was the first contest between the teams in nearly two years.rnrnParise had a strong game, firing three shots...

Kovalchuk perfectly executed a blueprint that would set the Devils back, costing them as much as possible. First there was the notorious contract: 17 years for 1...
No luck of the Irish for the Penguins Tuesday night. They lost their third straight game against the New Jersey Devils, who are third-to-last in the Metropolitan Division. Not only did they lose, but they were shut out by the lowly Devils on St. Patrick’s day. 2-0 was the final thanks to an empty-netter with 48 seconds left in the game. Another tough game for the Penguin...
With Gragnani clearing waivers and being sent down to Albany, the Devils have 25 players on their 23 man roster (15 forwards, 8 defensemen, 2 goalies). With Patrik Elias to miss the start of the season with a knee injury, he will start the season on injured reserve. This means the Devils have to cut one more player from their roster by Tuesday. The two players who seem to ...
After beginning the season with three losses, the Devils have strung together three straight wins, obtaining 7 of their last possible 8 points, all four games being decided in overtime or shootout. I wouldn't bet on them making the playoffs, but the way they are in every game and put the opposing team back on their heals at the end of the game shows that they have potentia...
The road trip continues for the Columbus Blue Jackets, but they are closer to home now. Tonight will be a goalie battle between Columbus and the New Jersey Devils in Newark, New Jersey. The Jackets have not had much success at the Rock (Prudential Center), and only won once in that arena in franchise history (and that was last season). The Devils are a very different t...
Back to Back. The Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the New Jersey Devils by a final score of 3-1. For the Devils, Kyle Palmieri scored the Devils' ice breaker with 3 minutes left in the game. Travis Zajac, my player to watch, had a helper on the power play goal. The Jackets only had 14 shots, and Cory Schneider stopped 11 of them for a 0.786 save percentage. As for t...
What a battle tonight in the rock for the Blue Jackets as they visit the New Jersey Devils in Newark, New Jersey. As we pass the quarter season, the Devils are a playoff team, while the Jackets have a mountain to climb. Last time these teams meet, John Tortorella earned his second win as coach of Columbus. That day was October 27, 2015, and it was a 3-1 win. Tonight, t...
Sorry for not being able to get the pre-game coverage up like I normally do. It was a busy day yesterday. Same with around the league. I will do a reaction blog after the deadline. As for last night, the Columbus Blue Jackets dominated the New Jersey Devils by a final score of 6-1. New Jersey got their lone goal in the early stages of the second period. Reid Boucher sc...

The return of Kovalchuk

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The most heard argument AGAINST a return of Ilya Kovalchuk in the NHL is that he really f*cked the New Jersey Devils by leaving them for the KHL, a couple of years into a huge contract. In 2010 the Devils acquired Kovalchuk (and defenseman Salmela) in a deal with the Atlanta Trashers for Oduya, Bergfors, Cormier and a 2010-1st round pick. Atlanta was unable to resign Koval...
A milestone evening alongside the end of a home stand and the start of a back to back and home and home series is on tap for the Blue Jackets where they take on the New Jersey Devils. Head coach John Tortorella is coaching in his 1,000 NHL game. This is an amazing milestone as he is the first Jackets to accomplish this feat. It's also to interesting to see an extremely...
CBJ Post-Game No. 71- Bjork Brings Back Win On a milestone night for head coach John Tortorella, his Columbus Blue Jackets brought home a big win against the New Jersey. The final score was 6-3. The Devils started scoring in the second period, with two power play goals in a span of 3:15. Kyle Palmieri potted the first goal in for his 26th of the season; Damon Severs...

Projected Lineups Columbus Blue Jackets Scott Hartnell - Brandon Dubinsky - Nick Foligno Brandon Saad - Boone Jenner - Cam Atkinson Matt Calvert - Jared Boll - Oliver Bjorkstrand William Karlsson - Michael Chaput - G...
The Jackets have failed the season sweep to the New Jersey Devils, losing to them in the Rock by a final score of 2-1. The Devils' goals came during the odd numbered periods of the game. In the first period, Reid Boucher scored his 7th goal of the season; Kyle Palmieri and Andy Greene had the assists. In the final frame, Devante Smith-Pelly scored his 13th goal of the ...
The Columbus Blue Jackets return to home ice tonight to combat the New Jersey Devils in their first meeting of the season. Isn’t it crazy that it comes with 60% of the season already in the books? The last time these teams met, Patrick Elias was still on the Devils. That’s how far back it has been for these two divisional squads. Both teams are coming off back to ba...

The New Jersey Devils withstood the Columbus Blue Jackets in their first matchup of the season by the score of 5-1. Taylor Hall, my player to watch, opened the scoring in the first period with his 12th goal of the season. Travis Zajac and Kyle Palmieri had the assists on the goal.

I have been a casual fan of New Jersey Devils (NJD) since the 2011-2012 Stanley Cup Finals push and like to run small analysis on the team every now and then. I also am the fan that argues with friends trying to prove how NJD is better as a team than other teams. Enough about me, lets dive into the reason why I have this Blog. The Final Push for playoffs. NJD have 15 g...
