Game #48: Snowy Saturday – Ducks 3, Devils 2

Despite selling my tickets off for today’s game I had planned on watching this afternoon, or at least having the game on while I was doing other things but an utter lack of sleep on Thursday caught up with me … 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 #43: Tortorous Thursday – Leafs 4, Devils 2

After our previous two meetings with the Leafs this season resulted in 6-1 and 7-2 losses, I knew what was coming last night. I still had to attend the game to experience ’80’s night with a friend, but I warned … Continue reading

Game #41: Sad-sack Sunday – Vegas 3, Devils 2

Ironically as the season lurches further and further into irrelevance there’s less and less to say after each game. What’s to say after a game like this? Still no Taylor Hall, no Marcus Johansson and now no Mackenzie Blackwood spelled … Continue reading

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

Game #33: Fun Friday – Devils 5, Senators 2

One of the reasons hockey is such an exciting game is that momentum can take just seconds to swing wildly from one bench to the other. Sometimes a single sequence can tell the entire story of a game. Such was … 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 #30 – Freaky Friday: Devils 5, Golden Knights 4 (OT)

If ever a game was going to drive me to Lloyd Bridges in Airplane! type mania it would have been tonight’s roller coaster of emotions at the Prudential Center.  No I don’t smoke, drink, sniff glue or do amphetamines, but … 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
