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 #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

Game #22: Tampa trouble – Lightning 5, Devils 2

Much like a kid who’s scared of the dark, I was actively avoiding tonight’s ‘contest’ in Tampa.  Especially after hearing the hopeless Cory Schneider was starting tonight’s game, and for good measure coach John Hynes scratched Mirco Mueller for Egor … Continue reading

Game #18 – Red Wings 3, Devils 2 (OT)

Another weekend, another matinee Devils game.  So far the team’s played five times in seven weeks on either a Saturday or a Sunday afternoon.  My feelings on matinees as a season ticket holder are mixed.  So long as it’s 1 … Continue reading

Game #5 – Avalanche 5, Devils 3

There’s a certain bit of irony that in 2018-19 the Avs hung the first loss on the Devils for the season after last year’s great start was kicked into high gear against the Avs in the 2017-18 home opener.  Turns … Continue reading

Game #4 – Devils 3, Stars 0

After winning their first three games in impressive fashion, the Devils’ challenge last night against the Stars was to avoid a dreaded letdown against a middle of the pack Western Conference team playing on a back-to-back.  My challenge, apparently was … Continue reading

Game 2 – Devils 6, Capitals 0

In what was certainly a first in franchise history, the Devils had their second home opener on two different continents last night – of course this one was at their more familiar home rink in Newark, NJ.  This was also … Continue reading
