Game #45: Monday Madness – Devils 8, Hawks 5

Nope that score’s not a misprint…the 12000 or however many souls showed up on a Monday night to see two teams going nowhere might have expected an NHL hockey game, but instead pond hockey broke out. Which I suppose was … 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 #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 #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 #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 #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

Game #14 – Leafs 6, Devils 1

Once again I don’t feel like posting the lowlights, Hynes’ postgame presser or anything else from this team as the lede, so instead I’ve been posting other stuff like Major League or Wargames with DEFCON 1.  Today it’s Rocky III.  … Continue reading
