Game #46: Terrible Tuesday – Blue Jackets 4, Devils 1

Even after the Devils won two in a row heading into Columbus, I had zero confidence they would do any better than they’ve done in almost all of their recent games against the Blue Jackets, especially on a road back … Continue reading

Game #45: Monday Madness – Devils 8, Hawks 5

Nope that score’s not a misprint…the 12000 or however many souls showed up on a Monday night to see two teams going nowhere might have expected an NHL hockey game, but instead pond hockey broke out. Which I suppose was … Continue reading

Game #44: Showcase Saturday – Devils 3, Flyers 2

Who would have thought on a Saturday afternoon in mid-January that matchups involving the Devils playing the Flyers and the Rangers playing the Islanders would be a complete afterthought for three of the four teams involved? Honestly even with it … Continue reading

Game #42: Terrible Tuesday – Sabres 5, Devils 1

Game #37 – Merry Monday: Devils 4, Canucks 0

Another home start, another shutout. The Mackenzie Blackwood hype train is officially moving at high-speed now after becoming the first Devils goalie since Martin Brodeur (in 2010!) to post back-to-back shutouts. Honestly I didn’t know what to expect in today’s … Continue reading

Game #35: Triumphant Thursday – Devils 5, Bruins 2

After the holiday break I wouldn’t have minded actually watching a Devils game last night, if only cause it was Mackenzie Blackwood’s second-ever NHL start. Can’t say I was really confident before the game though, especially with the news that … Continue reading
