The Devils are Dead, Long Live the Devils

The Devils are Dead, Long Live the Devils

The Devils may have had a glimmer of playoff hopes coming out of the bye a couple weeks ago, but that appears to have been all but snuffed at this point. So once again, Devils fans must look to the future and hope better days are ahead. It has become a regrettable yearly tradition now for Devils fans: What day can we declare the hopes for the playoffs truly over? With the team now eight points out with a litany of teams to jump over and the Devils looking uneven at best, we have probably reached that point in the 2016-17 season. While I’m sure some holdouts may remain, it’s very hard to...

Devils in the Details - 2/24/17: Concussion Edition

Here are your links for today: Devils Links Pavel Zacha has been diagnosed with a concussion after getting hit into the boards by Derick Brassard on Tuesday. Zacha will miss Saturday’s game. [Fire and Ice] [NJ.com] Hockey Links Kevin Shattenkirk’s name is getting thrown around a lot here as we get closer to the trade deadline. It seems likely he’ll get dealt. [PHT] What’s going to happen to Marc-Andre Fleury? Penguins GM Jim Rutherford would prefer to keep goalie.

Keep Hall/Palmieri/Zajac Together!

Keep Hall/Palmieri/Zajac Together!

The Devils have had one effective line over the last few weeks and their names are in the title. Today we look at why the Devils should be keeping them together for the long term. No matter what happens for the remainder of 2016-17, there’s one thing the New Jersey Devils should be certain to do in 2017-18: keep Travis Zajac, Kyle Palmieri and Taylor Hall together. Since becoming a regular trio, they have been used as the Devils’ top line and they’ve had success, even in games where the team as a whole has floundered. Individually, each of the three has been pretty good all season,...

The Devils Are Bad, But Not Bad Enough

The Devils Are Bad, But Not Bad Enough

The Devils are bad, but once again not terrible. We won’t make the playoffs — again. And we won’t get a top 5 pick — again. What do we do to take the next step? The Devils Are a Bad Hockey Team The Devils are a bottom 5 team in the NHL. I’m sorry if that is news to you, but it’s almost as factual as a claim as nebulous as this can get. Don’t get confused by encouraging performances by guys like Miles Wood, or recent surges from guys like Pavel Zacha, or verifications of offseason hopes from guys like Taylor Hall, or massive improvements from guys like Jon Merrill, or returns...

Devils swept by Senators, fall 2-1.

Devils swept by Senators, fall 2-1.

A better performance, but a loss nonetheless. Craig Anderson and the Senators defense held the Devils to one goal. Here’s the recap. Although the similarities were evident, almost terrifyingly so, the gameplay was not the same as the prior Ottawa game. Turris and Karlsson scored again for the Devils, and the only Senators penalty was another delay of game. Ottawa was up 1-0 entering the third again, and played a solid defensive game yet again. Ottawa won. However, that’s where the similarities end. Personally, I thought the Devils played pretty well. They got 30 shots on net, but...

Trading Cammalleri, or Exposing Him

Trading Cammalleri, or Exposing Him

Over the last two games, the one notable absence from the Devils’ roster has been Michael Cammalleri. His absence isn’t from an injury either, but rather because of his massive goal drought and slump. Should the Devils look to trade him before the deadline, or keep him and expose him in the upcoming expansion draft? From what I have heard, there are two prevailing thoughts about what to do with the recently healthy scratched Michael Cammalleri. Yeah, the one that has one goal in his last 33 games, a 47% Corsi, and seemingly nowhere to go but down considering he is 34 years old. He...

Frustrating Performance leads to 6-4 defeat for Devils at Barclays.

Frustrating Performance leads to 6-4 defeat for Devils at Barclays.

Devils fail to sweet weekend series, fall to Islanders 6-4 in frustrating, yet very Devil-like way. Today, it almost seemed is if Saturday’s game had never ended in a 3-2 Devils win. Because the Islanders continued their pressure they held in the late third of that game since the very beginning. Yes, the Devils scored first. However, that was because the Islanders decided to take a break in-between their sustained pressure by allowing a Miles Wood power play goal. But still, a 6-4 loss? Keith Kinkaid had a game where he made a save-of-the week, maybe even month contender, but also...

Islanders 6, Devils 4: Isles return favor in backup goalie half of weekend

Islanders 6, Devils 4: Isles return favor in backup goalie half of weekend

There were goals. Some saves too. But mostly goals. Dressing their backup goalies for the back half of a home-and-home, the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils combined for 10 goals on 62 shots Sunday in Brooklyn. The Isles and Jean-Francois Berube came out on top, outlasting the Devils and Long Islander Keith Kinkaid for a 6-4 win to exact revenge after Saturday night’s loss in Newark. The win returns the Isles to four points ahead of the Devils, but more importantly it ties them on points with the Boston Bruins (pending their game in San Jose later in the night) for the last wild...

Weekly Metropolitan Division Snapshot: 2/19 - 2/25

It was another action filled week in the Metropolitan Division with some teams switching spots in the standings. This past week saw Pittsburgh and the Islanders jump over Columbus and Philadelphia respectively, Sidney Crosby earn his 1,000th career point, and the Islanders and Devils both earn a couple of wins and losses. Standings from NHL.com Let's focus on how the top 4 teams in the division did last week. Washington continues to sit comfortably atop the division despite only playing once last week. They dropped a 3-2 shootout decision to Detroit on Saturday....

Devils survive late onslaught by Islanders, win 3-2 at home.

Devils survive late onslaught by Islanders, win 3-2 at home.

Scary, hard-fought, and a well-played win for the Devils. Here’s the recap. The ugly Ottawa game surely opened Hynes’ eyes a bit, and he responded by somewhat shockingly scratching Cammalleri before the game. Funny how things work - Cammalleri’s scratching, combined with a Sergey Kalinin trade, ended up paying dividends in this game. The Devils opened with energy, and played harder than they were against Ottawa. The first real chance came from the Devils off a Taylor Hall breakaway chance which was barely stopped by Thomas Greiss. Then, seven minutes in, the Devils got an...

Anemic performance by Devils leads to 3-0 loss to Senators

Anemic performance by Devils leads to 3-0 loss to Senators

After a 40 shot outburst against the NHL-worst Avalanche, the Devils were completely outplayed by a very good Senators team. Here’s the recap. The Devils, looking to build off a great performance against Colorado, faced a Senators team that had just lost to the Sabres 3-2. With this game, it seems safe to say the Devils failed to achieve their goal. Badly. In the first period, both teams started off lacking in energy. There was a Devils power play to immediately start off the game, but the Devils made nothing of it. Beau Bennett made his presence known in his first game back, using his...

Ottawa Senators shut out New Jersey Devils 3-0

Ottawa Senators shut out New Jersey Devils 3-0

The System was on full display tonight This was a game that the Senators desperately needed. Guy Boucher’s “The System” was on full display. The Sens held what should’ve been an easy opponent to a low number of shots. Mike Condon looked like a capable backup, earning a shutout after getting a couple days off. A 3-0 victory over the 13th-in-the-East Devils was just what the doctor ordered. If I’m being honest, I hardly remember the first period after Condon taking a puck-over-glass penalty eight seconds (!!) into the game. The shots were even, the chances weren’t memorable, and...
