Devils complete astonishing Western Canada sweep with comeback in Edmonton and OT winner in Calgary

Six…wins…in a row. The last time this franchise won six in a row Martin Brodeur was still in net for most of those games and Zach Parise(!) was our captain. That’s right…the end of the 2011-12 season was the last … Continue reading

As the calendar turns to October, a mid-preseason Devils preview

The Good, Bad and Ugly for improving Devils

Yesterday afternoon, the Devils took on Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals in DC. They won their third in a row thanks to overtime heroics from captain Nico Hischier. His second goal of the game gave the Devils a 4-3 OT … Continue reading

Down on the farm: Utica’s 10-0 start showcasing some of the Devils’ future
