Devils complete astonishing Western Canada sweep with comeback in Edmonton and OT winner in Calgary

Six…wins…in a row. The last time this franchise won six in a row Martin Brodeur was still in net for most of those games and Zach Parise(!) was our captain. That’s right…the end of the 2011-12 season was the last … Continue reading

Statement win for Devils and Vanecek against Colorado

If you’d told me a couple weeks ago as the Devils were sitting at 0-2 that they would win five out of their next six and improve to 5-3 I would have laughed at the absurdity. Even now I’m still … Continue reading

Devils’ season again comes to a halt due to COVID

Well I guess it was too much to ask to get through January without another Devils COVID outbreak. It’s hard to keep track anymore of who’s playing and who’s not, part of the reason it’s been hard for me to … Continue reading

Devils feast on the Flyers to close holiday weekend

It’s only been a few days since my last blog but there’s been a bit of Devils news since then. First and foremost, after coach Lindy Ruff called Jack Hughes’ imminent return from a shoulder injury close last week, he … Continue reading

Bernier’s return and Bratt’s penalty shot propel Devils to win in Pittsburgh
