The team most likely to end New York’s longest trophy drought
May 5 passed without ceremony a few months back, passed without pause, and that was probably for the best. The Yankees beat the Indians that day, and the Mets lost to the Rockies that night. The Devils, the only one of five New York area winter teams to make the playoffs this year, were already...

Islanders keep young defenseman in town for two more years
Rather than go long term for a player of whom they think a lot, the Islanders were able to sign restricted free-agent defenseman Ryan Pulock to a two-year bridge deal on Tuesday, the cost of which was not immediately available. Earlier this summer, Pulock was extended a qualifying offer of $874,125. The franchise has long...

Son of Stanley Cup-winning Devil chasing NHL dream
Bobo Carpenter has select memories from 2003 when his father, Bobby Carpenter, won the Stanley Cup as the assistant coach for the Devils. The now 21-year-old was 7 at the time and remembers being on the ice with his family, seeing the Cup up close. But in every photo Carpenter has from that night which...

Devils add veteran defenseman who can get physcial
Like most teams not in Toronto, the Devils didn’t make much of a splash once free agency opened at noon Sunday. Their biggest signing was veteran defenseman Eric Gryba, who inked a one-year, two-way deal worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $300,000 in the AHL — with $350,000 guaranteed. The 30-year-old split time this...

Devils have the money to keep momentum going in free agency
The rebuilding process for the Devils was accelerated a little bit faster than most anticipated. They broke a five-year playoff drought before losing to the Lightning in a five-game first-round series this past season. It was all sparked by the Hart Trophy-winning campaign of Taylor Hall — his acquisition from the Oilers in exchange for...

Ilya Kovalchuk is returning to NHL after five-year absence
Russian forward Ilya Kovalchuk has agreed to a three-year, $18.75 million deal to return to the NHL with the Los Angeles Kings. The club announced the deal Saturday with Kovalchuk, who is back in North America after a five-year absence. Kovalchuk was the No. 1 pick in the 2001 NHL draft by the Thrashers. He...
Devils draft Ty Smith in 1st round
DALLAS — There were a couple teams in the first round of the draft that seemingly benefited from what was an unpredictable first couple picks, and one of them was the Devils. With the No. 17 overall selection, they took defenseman Ty Smith on Friday night. Smith, 18, is a bit undersized, but he was...

Taylor Hall named MVP; Mathew Barzal snags Rookie of Year
Mathew Barzal, Taylor Hall and Brian Boyle all put together historic seasons on the ice in the New York City area — and now have the hardware to prove it. The Islanders’ Barzal and the Devils’ Hall and Boyle all took home prestigious honors Wednesday night at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas. Hall became...

‘Have another donut’ clash still lives in infamy 30 years later
“Schoney,” I called out rather ineffectually, attempting to grab the Devils’ coach and prevent him from getting into trouble as the brouhaha escalated in the corridor leading to and from the Meadowlands ice. “Schoney …” But it was too late. There was no stopping Jim Schoenfeld, and no stopping the trouble that would be visited...

Long Island Lou Lamoriello? Don’t rule out one last rescue
TORONTO — WWLD. What Would Lou Do? What Would Lou Lamoriello Do if the Maple Leafs believe it’s time to move one of hockey’s legendary executives out of the general manager’s chair onto a comfy adviser’s couch in order to slide either Kyle Dubas or Mark Hunter in the lead role? Would Lamoriello willingly recede...

Devils coach on elimination test: ‘We gotta learn through winning’
The Devils have made plenty of strides in recent weeks with their return to the Stanley Cup playoffs after a five-year hiatus, but they’re not ready for the run to end. As the team prepared for an elimination Game 5 in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday, coach John Hynes served a reminder that the Devils aren’t...

Devils’ top defenseman may miss Game 5 as Lightning get off for hit
Nikita Kucherov is skating away scot-free as Sami Vatanen pays the punishment. The Lightning’s 100-point scorer will not have a hearing with the NHL’s department of player safety after his hit on Vatanen knocked the Devils’ top defenseman out for the night Wednesday in Game 4 of the first-round series. Devils coach John Hynes said...

Devils drop Game 4 and lose key player after controversial hit
This was always a huge task sitting in front of the Devils, but it became almost impossible to do shorthanded. And now, their season is on the line. Having lost their top defenseman, Sami Vatanen, late in the first period on an unpenalized high hit from Nikita Kucherov, the Devils went on to lose Game...
Seinfeld ‘Face Painter’ surprises Devils fans for Game 4
The Devils could use the energy of one of their most prominent fans, whose famous TV character made a cameo appearance at the Prudential Center Wednesday night. Patrick Warburton, best known for his role as David Puddy in the ’90s sitcom “Seinfeld,” brought one scene back to life from the 1995 episode “The Face Painter,”...

Taylor Hall answering will-to-win question and playing like an MVP
The body of work that encompasses who wins the Hart Trophy stops at the end of the regular season, but there are those moments that bleed into the playoffs that either confirm or confound a submitted ballot. Through three postseason games, it’s been nothing but MVP confirmation for Taylor Hall. The Devils forward has been...
Lightning fan wants arena change after hockey puck to face
A Florida woman went to a playoff game to cheer on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday, but unfortunately left the arena with more than she bargained for. Sabrina Pattie was seated in the first level at the Amalie Arena in Tampa just outside the protective netting when a puck flew into the seats and...

Taylor Hall hears ‘MVP’ as feisty Devils seize playoff momentum
All of sudden, it’s a series. And a good one. The Devils were able to claw out a 5-2 victory over the Lightning in Game 3 of their first-round series Monday night in Newark, cutting the deficit in the best-of-seven contest to 2-1. It was a whale of a game for the Devils’ Hart Trophy...

Devils’ Game 3 lineup shakeup could bring both a return, debut
John Hynes is not about to sit on his hands. The Devils coach knows he needs to do something or the club’s first time back in the playoffs in the past six years is going to be a short one. So Hynes is trying to halt the losses to the Lightning with a few unnamed...
Scott Stevens is just the leader the Rangers need
If the Rangers are seeking a coach who can teach while re-establishing a no-nonsense culture and hard-edged identity on Broadway, then management should simply look across the river to where Scott Stevens lives. The Devils logo that the Greatest 100 defenseman wore on his chest while winning those three Stanley Cups from 1995-2003 should not...
