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 #77: Moody Monday – Devils 3, Sabres 1

Game #51: Satisfying Saturday – Devils 3, Canadiens 2 (OT)

Game #50: Ticket Thursday – Rangers 4, Devils 3

While I couldn’t watch most of last night’s latest disaster, getting the first update of 2-0 in the first period then all the subsequent updates after that – Rangers score with seconds remaining in the first, then come back to … Continue reading
