Game #81: Throwback Thursday – Canes 3, Devils 1

In a lot of ways last night’s penultimate game was a look back at the way things used to be for the Devils.  Specifically, last night’s game in Carolina which clinched a playoff spot for a resurgent Canes team returning … Continue reading

Game #78: Fickle Friday – Red Wings 4, Devils 0

Last weekend it felt like an empty win when the Devils beat Arizona, because of how it negatively impacted draft positioning and didn’t really mean anything for us this season.  After last night I felt much the same – empty … Continue reading

Game #76: Devils 2, Coyotes 1 (SO)

I’ve been so used to writing emo recaps lately, I actually started to type in Coyotes 2 in the title space as if they’d won this afternoon’s game before catching myself. For once the Devils did win a hockey game, … Continue reading

Game #64: Weary Wednesday – Flames 2, Devils 1

In one sense, today’s result was a best-case scenario for the Devils, lose but don’t lose by such a overwhelming margin that it destroys the confidence of your goaltender – tonight being Mackenzie Blackwood, playing for the first time since … Continue reading

Game #56: Terrible Tuesday – Blues 8, Devils 3

These days I might as well just recap games with Harry Doyle soundbites. Watching Major League would be better than just about any Devils game in the second half of this season. Seemingly the tank is in full force as … Continue reading

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

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 #11 – Islanders 3, Devils 0

What’s to say right now?  If this team isn’t at rock bottom now with three straight losses culminating in yesterday’s whitewash at Barclays with Lou Lamoriello being satisfied in his new post as GM of the first-place Islanders, I shudder … Continue reading
