Surprisingly Good, and Surprisingly Bad

Surprisingly Good, and Surprisingly Bad

Taylor Hall is good, Ben Lovejoy is bad, and everyone else is in between. I look at a few guys that are a bit better or worse than you may think. Surprisingly Good Beau Bennett The knock on Beau Bennett was that he could never stay healthy enough to show if he had the skills to develop into the player that would live up to his 1st round draft status. He has already topped his career best marks in ice time, points, and shots. What is even more important and impressive though is his contribution in possession. Beau Bennet starts in the offensive zone in sheltered situations frequently, but...

No Sweep This Year: New Jersey Devils Defeat New York Rangers in Overtime

No Sweep This Year: New Jersey Devils Defeat New York Rangers in Overtime

Joseph Blandisi scored a lovely goal in overtime for the New Jersey Devils to defeat the New York Rangers for the first time this season, 3-2. This game recap goes over how big this win felt, some of the notable performances, and more. I wanted the New Jersey Devils to beat Our Hated Rivals, the New York Rangers tonight. Earlier in this season, the Devils have been thwarted three other times. The first was an embarrassing rout in Manhattan. The second, a week after the first, was a much better-played game with a close score - but still a loss through the shootout. The third would come in...

How Good Damon Severson Has Been for the Devils in 2016-17

How Good Damon Severson Has Been for the Devils in 2016-17

In a deep dive into his production, competition, With or Without You, and other 5-on-5 stats, this post explores how good Damon Severson has been for the New Jersey Devils in 2016-17. If there’s one silver lining among the New Jersey Devils defense, then it is Damon Severson. The 22-year old defender is in his third season with the team and I think the larger issues with the squad have overshadowed what he has done. It isn’t easy for a defenseman to really stand out without being exceptional. I imagine it is even harder on a bad team. But after taking a closer look at the player,...

Two Penalty Shot Goals, A Fluke, & An Empty Sank the New Jersey Devils Against Columbus

Two Penalty Shot Goals, A Fluke, & An Empty Sank the New Jersey Devils Against Columbus

The New Jersey Devils did not play poorly against the Columbus Blue Jackets, but lost 1-4 thanks to two penalty shot goals against, a fluke of a shorthanded goal, and an empty net goal. This game recap goes over what happened at the Rock. What do you look for when a team that has little to play for still has games to play? Personally, I look for good, watchable performances. I want to see the team not get dominated. To show some actual fight. Try not to get embarrassed, in other way to put it. Today, the New Jersey Devils managed to do that against Columbus Blue Jackets in a 1-4 loss...

Weekly Metropolitan Division Snapshot: 3/19 - 3/25

Washington clinches a playoff spot but first in the Metropolitan Division remains up for grabs. The New York Islanders are in a playoff race, the Race to 28th is still led by the New Jersey Devils, and more in this week’s division snapshot. Congratulations to the Washington Capitals. They have clinched the first playoff spot in the NHL and maintained control of the Metropolitan Division after another week. Getting that ‘Y’ in the standings will be much harder as first place is anything but decided with three full weeks remaining. They are far from safe from securing that playoff...

Devils Need to Play to Score Effects Better

Devils Need to Play to Score Effects Better

If you’re looking for another article that throws some stats at you about how really not good this Devils’ team is, then look no further! Hooray the 2016-17 Devils! Another way I could’ve titled this piece would have been something like “the Devils are really bad at anything related to shots on goal.” We all know that the Devils are atrocious at producing shots for, and this manifests itself in several ways. Most obviously, the team has the worst shots per game in the NHL at 27.3 per game. The Devils used to get away with this by being stellar at suppressing shots against as...

New Jersey Devils Fall Short in High Scoring Game Against Pittsburgh Penguins

New Jersey Devils Fall Short in High Scoring Game Against Pittsburgh Penguins

In an exciting, watchable, fast-paced, and event-and-shot-filled game, the New Jersey Devils fell short to the Pittsburgh Penguins by a 4-6 final score. This game recap goes over the game and notes some specific players for both sides. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania featured one heck of a hockey game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils. Even with the Penguins’ long list of injuries, they’re still a top-tier team hosting not only a really bad Devils team, but a really bad Devils team that played the night before. This could have been ugly. Instead, it was an exciting...

The John Hynes Conundrum

The John Hynes Conundrum

With the Devils struggling mightily in 2016-17, the seat may be starting to get a bit warmer for head coach John Hynes. But with a roster that has plenty of issues, how fair is it to put the blame on him? In the midst of another postseason-free campaign, Devils are a team still searching for a light at the end of the tunnel of their rebuild. After a 2015-16 season that exceeded expectations, feelings were mostly positive in New Jersey and confidence in the new regime of Ray Shero and John Hynes was relatively high. With the 2016-17 season now nearing its end, a lot of those positive vibes...

Woo! Devils end 10 game losing streak, beat Flyers 6-2.

Woo! Woo! Woo! The Devils play well, and end their abysmal losing streak against the Flyers in a well-earned 6-2 win. For the first time in a looooong time it felt good to watch the Devils play again. They executed their plays well, they didn’t back down, and they were every bit as gritty as the Flyers. All those who were expected to score for the Devils score, and were the best players on the ice for the Devils today. Was it a perfect game? No, but it very nearly was. Every player except Blake Pietila and Nick Lappin ended up a positive in terms of Corsi, with only Lappin being not...
