Devils edge out Senators in Thanksgiving Eve thriller

By at 26 November, 2009, 12:32 pm

For both teams last night’s game just before the holiday was important – while Ottawa would have remained in first with a win, the Devils just wanted to get off the schneid after going 0-2-1 on their recent road trip.  Though it wasn’t pretty at times, the Devils’ 3-1 win was just what the doctor ordered, […]

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

By at 26 November, 2009, 11:42 am

Today is a day to reflect and appreciate what we got. I’m thankful for family, friends, health and happiness. Plus of course this space which gives me the opportunity to talk puck. It’s always fun because it gives us something to do. Hockey can take our minds off stuff. No matter how things are going […]

Picture of the day: Devils scratches

By at 25 November, 2009, 10:37 pm

Maybe I have a morbid sense of humor to find the scratch list funny…but I’ve just never seen it go eight deep before.  I have to admit thinking if one more guy gets banged up, how are they going to fit nine names?  Actually only about five or six of the scratches are injury-related.  Maybe […]

Video Of Day: Roloson’s 58 saves versus Leafs

By at 25 November, 2009, 1:37 am

We’re putting this one up on demand courtesy of our outstanding NJ Devil blogger Hasan, who didn’t catch Dwayne Roloson’s virtuoso performance Monday in which the 40 year-old vet stood on his head literally, finishing with an astounding 58 saves in a 4-3 Islander win over the Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre.
We were busy […]

Roloson’s 58 saves steal one for Islanders

By at 24 November, 2009, 4:42 pm

Judging by his performance at the ACC last night, Dwayne Roloson could easily be mistaken for a thief. That’s cause he faced 61 shots, incredibly making 58 saves to backstop the Islanders to a 4-3 overtime win over the Maple Leafs. Brilliant doesn’t even begin to describe the most saves by a goalie in a […]

Rangers play 7-Up with Jackets

By at 24 November, 2009, 2:13 pm

Unbelievable. Unpredictable. Ridiculous. Just a few words that sum up last night’s 7-4 Ranger win over the Blue Jackets at MSG. Remarkably, the Rangers played 7-Up with the Jackets, scoring their most goals since an early rout of Toronto in which they hit seven during a seven-game win streak when things looked more promising.
That they […]

Rangers and Islanders in action tonight

By at 23 November, 2009, 1:26 pm

Monday doesn’t have many games. But tonight, both the Rangers and Islanders are in action with one at home and the other finishing a long seven-game road trip.
The struggling Blueshirts- losers of five of six- try to get back on track against the Blue Jackets at MSG. A game we’ll be in our Sec.411 seats […]

Devils’ comeback falls short this time in Dallas

By at 22 November, 2009, 8:04 am

These days it’s harder to measure victories and losses by points as opposed to whether anyone else gets hurt by night’s end, though granted some of that is because the team is still near the division lead.  Fortunately reinforcements are (supposedly) on the way, as Rob Niedermayer and Jay Pandolfo may – may! – come […]

The Rants Of One Ranger Blogger

By at 21 November, 2009, 10:57 pm

As promised, we ranted about the latest Ranger debacle. A disturbing 3-2 loss at MSG to Florida. After Vinny Prospal opened the scoring by beating Tomas Vokoun five-hole, the Panthers responded with three straight coming from Steve Reinprecht (backhand off dreadful coverage by Kotalik), Jordan Leopold (fluky backhand that surprised Henrik) and Nathan Horton (off […]

Tune In At 10 ET

By at 21 November, 2009, 8:52 pm

That’s right. Instead of doing the same boring thing which our team does enough of trying to emulate Bill Murray’s infamous Phil character in Groundhog Day, we’ll be voicing our displeasure on a special 15 minute NYHR edition. Sound off the alarms because that’s what we’re doing.
Tonight’s 3-2 home loss to a Panther team that […]
