Game #31 – Terrible Tuesday: Leafs 7, Devils 2

First, let’s start out with the good news – if you want to call it that. My cold compelled me to sell my ticket to tonight’s game online at the last minute for a pittance of $15. Truth be told … Continue reading

Game #30 – Shootout Saturday: Predators 2, Devils 1 (SO)

In baseball there’s a saying that momentum’s only as good as your next day’s starting pitcher.  To a degree that’s true in the NHL as well with goaltending, but hockey also adds the travel element into things.  To wit, the … Continue reading

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 #28 – Stupid Sunday: Ducks 6, Devils 5 (SO)

Just when you think you’d seen it all, a game like yesterday happens where it’s so preposterous you start believing in divine intervention and curses. Yesterday wasn’t just another frustrating loss after regulation (this time in a shootout), dropping the … 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

Game #26: Mickey Mouse Monday – Lightning 5, Devils 1

The wonders of Internet photoshopping…sometimes a picture can tell a whole story.  For the younger fans who don’t know what Mickey Mouse has to do with the Devils, hockey’s GOAT Wayne Gretzky once bitterly called the Devils a ‘Mickey Mouse … 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 #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 #20 – Devils 5, Canadiens 2

Through the season’s first quarter there’s been very little to be thankful for as a Devils fan, at least in terms of overall results.  A 4-0 start got buried with just four wins in their next fifteen games before last … Continue reading

Game #16 – Devils 4, Penguins 2

After a disasterous 1-6 road trip (with a whopping 34 goals allowed, I might add!) dropped the Devils under .500, I can’t say I was feeling too confident in any type of bounceback while making my trek to the Rock … Continue reading
