Devils defeat Thrashers, 3-1
The winningest goalie in NHL history can not be deposed blithely, but after a 16-year reign by Martin Brodeur, the going-nowhere Devils have goaltending decisions to make. Johan Hedberg made the most of his chance to grab some of Brodeur's workload Friday by snapping the Devils' six-game losing streak...
Devs ring out bad year
Last New Year's Eve, the big ball came down right on the Devils, ringing out their last moments of greatness. Happy New Year means unhappy anniversary for the Devils, whose decline from the pinnacle to the cellar of the NHL arguably began a year ago tonight. They own only...

Devils stuck with Rolston tab
The Devils’ bid to shed salary and cap liability failed today when Brian Rolston reportedly cleared re-entry waivers. He remains New Jersey property, eligible to play for the Devils. Rolston, 37, was waived Dec. 14 and assigned to Albany on Tuesday, a necessary prelude to placing him on re-entry waivers...
Lundqvist's 43 saves lead Rangers past Devils
The Death of the Rivalry proved prematurely proclaimed by Jacques Lemaire. Still, last night's decent imitation only added to the one-sided tilt of recent Rangers-Devils history. The fast and fierce battle, the match between the two great goalies, ended as these showdowns have 16 times in their last 23...

Devils' Rolston available on re-entry waivers
The Devils Wednesday placed LW Brian Rolston on re-entry waivers, allowing any other NHL team to claim him at half salary and half his cap hit, with New Jersey responsible for the remainder. Rolston was assigned to Albany Tuesday as a preliminary requisite for re-entry, after being waived on Dec...
Rolston's latest casualty of Devils' decline
Their Rangers rivalry needs reviving. Jacques Lemaire says his comatose Devils aren't holding up their half of the two it takes to tangle. "There's no rivalry right now," the recently reinstated Lemaire said of meeting the Rangers tonight in Newark. "We have to start playing well, never mind...

Devils place Rolston on re-entry waivers
Devils GM Lou Lamoriello Tuesday said LW Brian Rolston will be assigned to Albany for the purpose of placing him on re-entry waivers, which would allow any team to pick him up at half-price. The 37-year-old, on the third year of a four-year, $20 million deal, has indicated he will...
Free Devils tix available
Because of the snowstorm and ensuing transportation difficulties, the Devils are offering free tickets for one of three upcoming games to those with used or unused tickets for Sunday night's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs. The free tickets are available for Tuesday, Jan. 4 against the Wild at...

Snow luck for Devils, who fall yet again
The failure to postpone last night's Devils loss would be acceptable only if the NHL preferred to expose as few as possible to the ongoing embarrassment in Newark. The witnesses were few, perhaps 2,500, announced at 5,329, braving the blizzard, but they saw plenty of what their...

Time to clean Devil-ish mess
Oh, the excuses have been there for the Dev ils, all right, from gen eral manager Lou Lamoriello's inexplicable failure to clean up the cap mess before the start of the season, to rookie coach's John MacLean's clear inability to command respect or install a coherent system...
Contenders target Devs' captain
As the Devils threaten to break the record for worst point falloff in NHL history, the lesson is this: The Flyers, who fell from 101 points to 56 in 2006-07, rebounded with 95 the next season. Catastrophe can present an opportunity, and this one is the Devils' chance to restock...

Lemaire's in Devil of a spot
When Jacques Lemaire returns -- however reluctantly -- to this mess from his Christmas cottage in Canada, the Devils' season already will be essentially over. The campaigns of defenseman Bryce Salvador and winger Zach Parise may be finished, too. Sources say both Salvador and Parise may wait to return to...
Jacques-therapy fails as Devils fall again
The coaching change changed nothing. The Devils' debacle didn't even pause in its gallop off the cliff. It was rotten business as usual for the league's newest worst team despite the firing of John MacLean yesterday and the return of Jacques Lemaire behind the New Jersey bench. "I...
Jacques-therapy fails after Grinch Lou gives MacLean . . .
The coaching change changed nothing. The Devils' debacle didn't even pause in its gallop off the cliff. It was rotten business as usual for the league's newest worst team despite the firing of John MacLean yesterday and the return of Jacques Lemaire behind the New Jersey bench. "I...

Devils fire head coach John MacLean; hire Lemaire on interim basis

Brodeur not looking to leave reeling Devils
If NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman were honest about defending the salary cap against circumvention, they would have prosecuted the waiving of no-trade clauses as violations of the collective-bargaining agreement. Instead, the NHL picks and chooses which situations to pursue. Really, the question of whether Martin Brodeur would waive his no-trade...

Brodeur 'wants to stay' with struggling Devils
The face of the Devils' franchise, the winningest goalie in NHL history, Martin Brodeur Wednesday demolished speculation that he might seek, or accept, a trade to a contender because of his team's plight. "Oh, no, no, no," Brodeur said. "I want to stay here. I've been fortunate to...
Things Arnott going well for slumping Devils
WASHINGTON -- The Devils' season is almost irretrievable, only getting worse, and grim reality has set in. There's no way for the players to ignore the consequences. Their leading goal-scorer says his prime concern is helping the Devils turn this disaster around. But Jason Arnott admits he has wondered...

Devs on road to worst fall
WASHINGTON -- This can't continue. If it does, the Devils will set the record for worst point-drop in NHL history. They've lost eight straight road games, tied for the second-longest such skid in team history, as they visit the Capitals tonight, outscored 28-10 in that drought. Overall, they...

Devils bring back D Corrente
The Devils recalled D Matt Corrente from Albany on Monday for Tuesday’s game against the Capitals. Corrente, who has four assists in 15 games with the Devils this season, was sent to Albany eight days ago. The Devils now have seven defenseman and 12 forwards on the roster...

Devils' worst 'L' since '08
ATLANTA -- The Devils' season isn't half over, but it's over. They don't own a white flag in the franchise, but the captain isn't certain some of his teammates haven't found one. "I hope not, but games like tonight make you wonder," Jamie Langenbrunner said...

Boulton's hat trick leads Thrashers over Devils
ATLANTA — Eric Boulton scored three times for his first career NHL hat trick, Chris Thorburn added a goal and two assists, and the Atlanta Thrashers routed the reeling New Jersey Devils 7-1 on Saturday night. Former Atlanta captain Ilya Kovalchuk scored a power-play goal in the second period for the...
Devils 'break' down
The Power of Positive Thinking doesn't replace a worthless breakout. Not everything the Devils do wrong is coach John MacLean's fault, but the primary cause of their biggest failure -- a league-worst offense -- is the utter absence of a reliable, or even occasional, breakout play. That's...

Devils, MacLean look to turn corner
Though it all could change in a moment, there seems to be a change in the Devils since they came back from crisis and found John MacLean still running the team and not running scared. The assumption is that MacLean is going to remain coach for the long term, and...

Ilya, Marty come through for Devils
This was what the Devils' season was supposed to be -- Ilya Kovalchuk scoring goals, Martin Brodeur stopping them. They can only hope against hope that it isn't too little, too late. "It's better to start right now than never," the $100 million man said last night after...
