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 #40: Frenzied Friday – Devils 3, Coyotes 2 (SO)

After getting less than four hours of sleep Thursday in the middle of a stressful weekend, I wasn’t even thinking of watching the Devils’ game in Arizona Friday. Particularly after their horrendous loss in Dallas two nights ago. So I … 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 #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 #29: Messy Monday – Sharks 5, Devils 2

Much to my chagrin I did actually stay up till the finish last night’s Devils game in San Jose, which always looked like a sure loss and even more so after two quick goals given up in the first period … Continue reading

Game #27: Throwback Thursday – Devils 6, Kings 3

After a few days off we’re at my least favorite time of the year as a hockey fan – the Sleepy Coast trip.  Whether I stay up to watch the games on a weeknight depends on both how the team’s … Continue reading

Who’s responsible for the Devils mess?

They gave it the old college try late. But a desperate Devils rally fell short against the Capitals tonight. Instead, goals from Nico Hischier and ex-Cap Marcus Johansson weren’t enough to prevent a pair of empty netters from Alexander Ovechkin … Continue reading

Game #19 – Hurricanes 2, Devils 1

After yesterday’s hideous loss, part of me didn’t even want to bother with the aggravation I could sense was coming in Carolina today.  We never seem to do well in that building (and also seem to play a disproportionate share … 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
