Could be final days for dynamic Devils duo
The Devils aren't doing anything about enticing their top defenseman, Paul Martin, away from unrestricted free agency, either. The playoffs open in two weeks, and, historically, the Devils haven't negotiated with their upcoming UFAs once the second season starts. Heck, historically, they don't do much with them...
Bruins sting lethargic Devils in overtime
Lethargy resembles fatigue on the Devils since they clinched their playoff berth. Neither is attractive or triumphant. The Devils have lost twice since ensuring their 13th straight postseason. They were worn down in falling 5-1 in Philadelphia on Sunday, the second of back-to-back road games. They had a day off...
Free agents Martin, Kovalchuk could be in final days with Devils
The Devils are not doing anything about enticing their top defenseman, Paul Martin, away from unrestricted free agency. The playoffs open in two weeks, and, historically, the Devils have not negotiated with their upcoming UFAs once the second season starts. Heck, historically, they do not do much bargaining with them...

Kovalchuk gives Devils 'Big Shot' at title
There's a new buzz around the Devils, and they're selling tickets, too, for the big show in Newark, starring the "Big Shot." The Devils still have significant kinks to work out, the way they list so heavily to portside, but nobody would undo the deal that brought Ilya...

Devils' road woes continue
PHILADELPHIA -- The Devils are fortunate there are virtually no back-to-backs in the playoffs any more. And they can thank themselves that they're likely to own home ice advantage in the first round. Otherwise, they would have significant demons to exorcise in two weeks. They demonstrated decisively, from the...
Devils a model of consistency
PHILADELPHIA -- If the Devils, who lost 5-1 to the Flyers last night, suffered a letdown after clinching a postseason berth Saturday night, it was from a pretty lofty height. New Jersey's 13 consecutive playoff berths are one short of the Islanders' longest-ever streak among the Metropolitan area teams...

Jersey earns playoff berth
MONTREAL -- Ilya Kovalchuk put his teammate's interests before his own. Kovalchuk gave way to Brian Rolston, who reached a milestone and put an exclamation mark on the Devils' latest playoff berth. Patrik Elias and Jamie Langenbrunner had power-play goals and Dainius Zubrus also scored for New Jersey, which...

Devils beat Canadiens, secure playoff berth
MONTREAL Patrik Elias and Jamie Langenbrunner had power-play goals and Dainius Zubrus also scored for the New Jersey Devils, who clinched their 13th straight playoff berth with a 4-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens tonight. Martin Brodeur made 25 saves for his 41st victory of the season and New Jersey...
Top seed not the Devils' top priority
Seven seconds away from all but putting the hated Rangers out of the playoffs and excruciating 4-3 shootout losers of a game that kept them from taking undisputed possession of the Atlantic Division lead, the Devils are of the opinion that few losses like the one Thursday night ever hurt...
Quebec arena to get Burns' name
STANSTEAD, Quebec -- A thin and frail Pat Burns said he's honored to have an arena named after him, even as he conceded he likely won't live to see it completed. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper attended an announcement yesterday that the Pat Burns Arena will be built...

Kovalchuk sits out shootout
The way Henrik Lundqvist was playing last night, Devils coach Jacques Lemaire could have chosen Maurice Richard, Gordie Howe and Mario Lemieux for the shootout and still not have scored. But Lemaire didn't pick Ilya Kovalchuk, instead he went with Zach Parise, who couldn't get the puck through...
Rangers still alive after shootout win
If they didn't before, the Rangers believe now. They believe they can make up those three measly points. They believe they can make the playoffs. "You just gotta believe," Brandon Dubinsky declared, perhaps unknowingly invoking Tug McGraw and the 1973 Mets. Blue faith was both rewarded and fortified last...

Rangers tie it late, top Devils in SO
Chris Drury scored the tying goal with 16.5 seconds left in regulation and Erik Christensen had the only tally in the shootout as the New York Rangers shook off three deficits and gave their playoff hopes another boost with a 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday...
Devils want to knock out Rangers
There's no sympathy from the Devils. They want the Rangers to miss the playoffs. "If they don't make the playoffs, it's a good thing," defenseman Paul Martin said. "It's a big rivalry. They don't want us to win, and we don't want them to...

Devils' Kovalchuck catches fire
Ilya Kovalchuk delivered a major moment last night, huge enough to overshadow Martin Brodeur's runaway record eighth 40-victory season. Kovalchuk's four-point period, New Jersey's record-tying first in nine years, certified the Devils' vision of him as their long-absent threat for instant, explosive offense. "I think it is...
Another milestone for Brodeur
This stands as the most remarkable of Martin Brodeur's records. He has eight of these 40-victory seasons, no one else has four. "It means you're good," Devils coach Jacques Lemaire said of the goalie who owns nearly every record for his position. "I expect myself to get these...

Zajac, Parise and Kovalchuk lead Devils to 6-3 win
Travis Zajac and Zach Parise each scored twice and Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and three assists to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 6-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night. Paul Martin also scored for the Devils, and Martin Brodeur made 19 saves to reach...
Oh, baby, do Devils need Ilya's scoring
In their past two games -- a loss and a shootout loss -- the Devils have scored one goal in 125 minutes of ice time. Heading into tonight's match at the Prudential Center against Columbus (7:00, MSG Plus, WFAN 660 AM), coach Jacques Lemaire is looking for his...

Devils look to get Kovalchuk, offense untracked
There's much for the Devils to do in the final three weeks, like restart and salvage their season. They still need a victory to crack 90 points for the 13th straight time, Martin Brodeur lacks one to reach 40 for a record eighth time, and they still can mount...

Punchless Devils suffer case of Blues
The Devils' second-half slump has become chronic, and for the first time, the coach is questioning his team's desire and commitment. "It's the excitement to play, the life, that you don't see," coach Jacques Lemaire complained after last night's 1-0 loss to ther Blues in Newark...

Devils work to boost power play
In other years, under other regimes, the Devils would have had a day off yesterday, after games on consecutive nights with travel to-and-from Toronto, five games in seven nights and zero off-days in 17. Instead, coach Jacques Lemaire yesterday worked, worked, worked his power play that has flopped, flopped, flopped...

Devils flunk road test
TORONTO -- It's Newark or bust for the Devils lately, and that's a symptom of trouble for a team with silver ambitions. They lost last night for the 10th time (1-8-2) in their last 11 road games and 13th in 15, falling in both visits here during that...

Just like old times: Retro Devs take Atlantic lead
For the first time all season, after 167 days, the Devils finally had a full, injury-free roster last night. Hale and healthy, they returned to the top of the Atlantic Division. Although beating up the Stanley Cup champs is old hat for them, they looked like a force to contend...
Devils' Martin finally makes return
Paul Martin's return last night from a broken arm should have been in early December. As it is, we will never know if he might have been the little extra Team USA needed to beat Canada for the Olympic gold medal. The difference was so slim. The Americans won...
Penguins: Devils 'not in our heads'
There must be film of the pre-Mario Lemieux, pre-Sidney-Crosby, even pre-Battleship Kelly Penguins playing like this in somebody's attic. So, after the Devils completed a sweep of the six-game series against the defending Stanley Cup champions, by a total of 22 goals to five, inquiring minds had to ask...
Ol' Devils didn't wear Prada
The Devils remembered when they were young last night, wearing the red and green uniforms that they wore for the first 10 years in New Jersey without a shudder from at least one charter team member. Chico Resch doesn't remember minding looking like Christmas in 1982-83, the season the...

Martin may return to Devils tonight
Paul Martin has missed 59 games since fracturing his left forearm Oct. 24. But after months out of the lineup, the Devils top defenseman returns for tonight's game against Pittsburgh (7 p.m., MSG, ESPN). After a positive visit with doctors on Monday, Martin remained open to the possibility...
