Devils looking to end 2-year playoff absence

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Getting to the playoffs used to be a given for the New Jersey Devils. The three-time Stanley Cup champions made the postseason for 13 straight years between 1996-97 and 2009-10. The run ended in 2011 and New Jersey has missed the playoffs three of the last four seasons. The only year they made it, they got to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2012. The goal, obviously...

Is There a Simple Solution for New Jersey?

#176552772 / New Jersey Devils’ General Manager Lou Lamoriello stated this past week that it is not the amount of goals scored that he places value on, but rather just that the Devils score more than their opponents, a valid belief from the longest tenured GM in the National Hockey League. However, the Devils are beginning the 2014-2015 season trying to crack a...

2014-15 New Jersey Devils Preview: Post-Martin Brodeur Era Begins

Parise bashes dump-and-chase strategy

Zach Parise used to be a supporter of the dump-and-chase strategy. That very strategy propelled Parise and the Devils to some strong seasons and a deep playoff run, but the forward has since changed his mind. In fact, he’s backing his shift away from the dump-and-chase thanks to advanced statistics. Here’s what Parise told the Star Tribune: “I read a study this summer that...

2014/15 Metro Division Preview: New Jersey Devils

Last season the New Jersey Devils finished just shy of a playoff spot. Outside of their terrible shootout record (0-13) the Devils were hampered by an aging goaltender who still refuses to admit that he is too old to continue playing in the NHL. To top it all off, they were 27th overall in goals scored. This season proposes to be different for the Devils. They’ve finally committed...
