Devs remain on life support
The tragic number is one, the Preposterous Dream virtually done. National federations soon will be combing non-playoff teams for next month's World Championships, but Martin Brodeur, a longtime mainstay of Team Canada, says he won't be wearing the red Maple Leaf and shuffling off to Bratislava. "No. No...

Devils' streak of .500-plus seasons in jeopardy
Eras could end tonight. Anger and gnashing of teeth will follow, but this could be the right time to commemorate the Devils' great accomplishments with a Wall of Honor, a Hall of Fame. Their 13-season playoff streak isn't the only monumental run that could end tonight when the Islanders...

'Entourage' is allowed on bench
BOSTON -- Honestly, just when you're sure the Is landers couldn't get any whackier, along comes "E" to be another suit behind the team's bench. What, Sloan was busy? In case you missed it, as we presume the NHL did, there was Kevin Connolly, who plays the...
Little left for Devils but to fall on pitchforks
BUFFALO -- Doom looms, and the Devils' misery translated to miserable hockey. So Jacques Lemaire ripped his game-mailers. "They can't think the season's over. They have to play. They're getting paid. They have to play. They weren't ready to play," the Devils coach said angrily after...

Devils have a snowball's chance with loss to Sabres, 2-0
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Ryan Miller stopped 30 shots for his fifth shutout of the season in leading the Buffalo Sabres to a 2-0 victory over New Jersey that all but ended the Devils' playoff hopes Saturday night. Nathan Gerbe and Thomas Vanek scored first-period goals to help the Sabres won...
Devils fall to Penguins, 1-0, in shootout
PITTSBURGH — Longtime Devils do not recognize what they’ve never known in the past 13 seasons. Ilya Kovalchuk is familiar with missing the playoffs, and he says the Preposterous Dream is over. “If [the Sabres] win, I think we’re done,” Kovalchuk said, moments before the Sabres beat the Panthers...
Devils can put Dream to sleep
PITTSBURGH -- Longtime Devils do not recognize what they've never known in the past 13 seasons. Ilya Kovalchuk is familiar with missing the playoffs, and he says the Preposterous Dream is over. "If [the Sabres] win, I think we're done," Kovalchuk said, moments before the Sabres beat the...

Neal scores in shootout, Pens beat Devils 1-0
PITTSBURGH — James Neal scored in the third round of a shootout and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Friday night in a game dominated by goalies Marc-Andre Fleury and Martin Brodeur. Fleury made 21 saves for his third shutout of the season and 19th of his...
Parise won't play until Wednesday
PITTSBURGH – Both Zach Parise and Jacques Lemaire agreed today that the two-time Devils MVP will not return to the lineup here tonight nor tomorrow in Buffalo. "It doesn't even cross my mind. If he's not ready, he's not ready," Lemaire said after today's morning skate, Parise...
Dream come true! Zach's back
PITTSBURGH -- Just when faith was fading, the Devils have fresh, massive inspiration to revive their Preposterous Dream. Zach Parise, their reigning two-time team MVP, joined them in practice yesterday after missing 61 games. While Parise is not expected to face the Penguins tonight, he would not rule out playing...

Parise practices; will play with Devils this season
Nearly five months since undergoing knee surgery, Devils' star winger Zach Parise rejoined his team for practice Thursday, just when their Preposterous Dream needs all the help it can get. Parise is not expected to play in Pittsburgh Friday or Buffalo Saturday, but there may be a chance for him...
Devils' Rolston perseveres after rough start
The saga of Brian Rolston is one that defines the Preposterous Dream. It likely will prove ill fated, but the Devils' implausible turnaround still will be remembered among the team's wealth of celebrated exploits. Rolston will be an ownership posterboy against mega-signings when they talk CBA next year, and...

Parise may play before end of season
BOSTON -- It's three weeks today since Zach Parise was given 3-to-4 weeks before resuming practice, and the informed expectation is that he will seek medical clearance this week to rejoin the Devils. If so, a return to the lineup might be possible late next week. But there appears...
Reality bites devs
BOSTON -- All the Devils have left is defiance and denial. Spent and mortally wounded beyond disappointment or frustration, the spectre of the end of a 13-year era settled upon them last night. Their Preposterous Dream became all but impossible. They had to admit reality. "Probably not being part of...

Devils lose to Bruins 4-1
BOSTON — Zdeno Chara broke a tie midway through the second period and Milan Lucic scored his 30th goal of the season late in the third as the Boston Bruins beat the New Jersey Devils 4-1 on Tuesday night. The Devils, who committed one penalty in their previous two games, were...
Lemaire mulling return
BOSTON -- However it ends, record miracle or three-month tease, Jacques Lemaire will deserve consideration for a second Jack Adams Award as NHL Coach of the Year (the first in 1993-94). That wouldn't do it, by itself, but don't be surprised if the Devils' Preposterous Dream is enough...

Marty shutout ends Devs' skid
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Devils refuse to quit on their longshot playoff hopes. David Clarkson scored twice and Martin Brodeur made 13 saves to earn his NHL-record 115th shutout as the Devils snapped a two-game slide with a 3-0 victory over the Blue Jackets yesterday. New Jersey is in 11th...

Devils shut out Blue Jackets, 3-0
COLUMBUS, Ohio — David Clarkson scored twice and Martin Brodeur made 13 saves to earn his NHL-record 115th shutout as the New Jersey Devils snapped a two-game slide with a 3-0 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday. Nick Palmieri also scored, and Mattias Tedenby added two assists for the...
Trainer, not refs, making the call
PITTSBURGH -- The five-point concus sion protocol adopted this week by the NHL operates on the honor system, with club medical personnel on their own without official oversight in determining whether a player must be removed from a game and then subject to a 15-minute waiting period before being permitted...
Desperate Devs need Kovalchuk to carry them
It's time. Time for The Big Shot to exert his influence. Time for the guy with the preposterous contract to revive the expiring Preposterous Dream. The Devils' playoff hopes are dying for goals. It's time for Ilya Kovalchuk to score them. Moses, if you must. Somebody has to...

Devils' playoff hopes take big hit
Shocked back to desperation by their 27-hour nightmare, the Preposterous Dreamers stare grim reality in the face. The Devils quibble only whether they can lose one more game or none. Red retro helmets, green pants, whatever, it's all blue and bleak inside. The Devils' miracle bid to make the...

Senators get best of Devils
OTTAWA -- The Devils are happy to be done with Ottawa. They entered this game on a tear, winning 23 of their last 28 (23-3-2). Now, they've lost to the last-place Senators for the second time in nine days after Ottawa's 3-1 victory last night. "Those are points...

Devils smell playoff spot
You have to be in it to get in. Finally, the Devils are legitimately in it. They're into it, too. The Undead Devils visit Ottawa tonight six points behind the Sabres for the final playoff berth. Their game in hand tonight, on which a team with such aspirations must...

Devils dream one step closer with win over Thrashers
The Flying Wallendas have nothing on this tightrope act. Flying Pigs might. Just. The Preposterous Dream is thoroughly believable now. Roll out the bandwagon, here come the late adopters. The Stanley Cup playoffs open four weeks from tonight, and anyone still certain that the Devils' streak is over at 13...

Zajac on cusp of eclipsing Daneyko as Devs' iron man
The Preposterous Dream even overshadows his iron man record, Ken Daneyko says. Mr. Devil jests that otherwise, he might knock Travis Zajac out of action before he equals Daneyko's consecutive-game team record tonight. "I thought about tripping him in the hallway. I can't do that. He's too...
