Game #31 – Terrible Tuesday: Leafs 7, Devils 2

First, let’s start out with the good news – if you want to call it that. My cold compelled me to sell my ticket to tonight’s game online at the last minute for a pittance of $15. Truth be told … Continue reading

Game #30 – Shootout Saturday: Predators 2, Devils 1 (SO)

In baseball there’s a saying that momentum’s only as good as your next day’s starting pitcher.  To a degree that’s true in the NHL as well with goaltending, but hockey also adds the travel element into things.  To wit, the … Continue reading

Game #29: Messy Monday – Sharks 5, Devils 2

Much to my chagrin I did actually stay up till the finish last night’s Devils game in San Jose, which always looked like a sure loss and even more so after two quick goals given up in the first period … Continue reading

Game #28 – Stupid Sunday: Ducks 6, Devils 5 (SO)

Just when you think you’d seen it all, a game like yesterday happens where it’s so preposterous you start believing in divine intervention and curses. Yesterday wasn’t just another frustrating loss after regulation (this time in a shootout), dropping the … Continue reading

Game #27: Throwback Thursday – Devils 6, Kings 3

After a few days off we’re at my least favorite time of the year as a hockey fan – the Sleepy Coast trip.  Whether I stay up to watch the games on a weeknight depends on both how the team’s … Continue reading

Game #26: Mickey Mouse Monday – Lightning 5, Devils 1

The wonders of Internet photoshopping…sometimes a picture can tell a whole story.  For the younger fans who don’t know what Mickey Mouse has to do with the Devils, hockey’s GOAT Wayne Gretzky once bitterly called the Devils a ‘Mickey Mouse … Continue reading

Game #25: Sloppy Saturday – Jets 4, Devils 3 (OT)

After a total unmitigated disaster and tease to end all teases like tonight, where to start? Start from the pregame I suppose, where I was seriously debating not going to this game, but an inability to sell my pair of … Continue reading

Who’s responsible for the Devils mess?

They gave it the old college try late. But a desperate Devils rally fell short against the Capitals tonight. Instead, goals from Nico Hischier and ex-Cap Marcus Johansson weren’t enough to prevent a pair of empty netters from Alexander Ovechkin … Continue reading

Game #24: Capital punishment – Caps 6, Devils 3

Perhaps the best way to describe tonight’s game is frustrating, yet typical of the 2018-19 Devils so far.  I was just as in and out of the game as the team was, my attempt to take a pregame nap to … Continue reading

Game #21 – Black Friday: Islanders 4, Devils 3 (OT)

Sometimes it’s hard to title a recap and it only adds one more pratfall to writer’s block, that’s why I hadn’t been doing it this year.  Days like today, the title writes itself though.  Of course while most of the … Continue reading
