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 #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

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 #24: Capital punishment – Caps 6, Devils 3

Perhaps the best way to describe tonight’s game is frustrating, yet typical of the 2018-19 Devils so far.  I was just as in and out of the game as the team was, my attempt to take a pregame nap to … Continue reading

Game #23: Florida meltdown – Panthers 4, Devils 3 (OT)

Now these losses are starting to run together, figuratively and literally.  Back-to-back days in the sunshine state, back-to-back brutal losses, which granted even in our good years is par for the course with this team.  This latest loss was particularly … Continue reading

Game #21 – Black Friday: Islanders 4, Devils 3 (OT)

Sometimes it’s hard to title a recap and it only adds one more pratfall to writer’s block, that’s why I hadn’t been doing it this year.  Days like today, the title writes itself though.  Of course while most of the … 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 #17 – Devils 3, Flyers 0

Much like most of the tri-state area I was unexpectedly snowed in tonight so for once I was glad to have a Thursday night game.  As always division games are nervewracking, especially going to Philly with all the shenanigans that … Continue reading

Game #6 – Flyers 5, Devils 2

For this afternoon’s game I decided to try something different – being that the weather was in the high 50’s and might be the nicest day left that we get until 2019, I wanted to be outside, but a 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
