Devils pass latest test, coach says
PHILADELPHIA -- On a night that muddied his roster-picking waters more than clarified them, the Devils coach saw that cloudy glass half-full. It's only preseason, but for a guy who early on said he wants to play to win in exhibitions, the Devils have lost their last three, their...

Kovalchuk on 2nd line, for now
PHILADELPHIA -- This is a dilemma that dogs and defines the Devils. Deadly as such a one-two punch may be, Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise both play left wing, which means one superstar always will skate on the second line. The order almost certainly will change, swing the other way...

Brodeur no fan of head shot bans
Devils goalie Martin Brodeur says the new NHL warden is giving hockey a black eye with his spate of head-shot suspensions. "Not everybody is following preseason, and when it's over, the only thing people are going to hear about is, 'Twelve suspensions for 37 games or whatever it turns...

Devils to retire Niedermayer's No. 27 on Dec. 16
The Devils will raise defenseman Scott Niedermayer’s No. 27 to the rafters on Dec. 16. Niedermayer, who won three Stanley Cup championships across 12 seasons in New Jersey, will be the third player to have such an honor, and they all played the same position. The Devils retired defenseman...

Devils' hopefuls fizzle out in loss to Islanders
The Devils' job seekers advanced by sitting out last night. Hardly any hopefuls helped their cause. Most wasted what may be their last best chance in a 6-2 mauling by the Islanders at Nassau Coliseum. "Some guys were trying to do too much in order to make an impression," coach...
Larsson, Kovy a Devilish duo
There are other issues, other job competitions, but the Devils' preseason is quickly becoming All About Adam. Pardon the Devils if they dream that Adam Larsson proves to be the catalyst that fires up Ilya Kovalchuk. "His ability to control the play and find Kovy with that pass is something...

Hopeful Devs fight for spots
The roster crystallizes quickly for a team that missed the playoffs. After one exhibition game, it's almost clear who will be with the Devils when they open the season Oct. 8. If they fill a 23-man roster, unlike last season's early salary cap circus of the short bench...

Devils find 'right' answer
ALBANY -- One righty spot on the Devils' defense is solved -- for a long time. Prize first-rounder Adam Larsson is a beast. It took only the first period of his first NHL exhibition game for the 18-year-old to make clear that the Devils hit the jackpot with the fourth...
It's go time for Christensen
ALBANY -- Last season Erik Christensen started 22 games as Marian Gaborik's center including the playoffs, most among the Rangers' pivots. This year, however, Christensen understands that unless something goes terribly wrong, he's not likely to get even a sniff on the first line following the Blueshirts' summer...

Devils' top pick turning heads
ALBANY -- It doesn't make it official, but Ilya Kovalchuk told The Post that prized Devils' first-round draft pick Adam Larsson should make the team. "I'm sure he'll be a big part of our team, especially our power play," Kovalchuk said yesterday. "I'm not a coach...

Sykora makes most of return to Devils
After scoring on three outside shots, Petr Sykora is no longer such a long shot to make the Devils. Perhaps he's finally getting warmed up for hat tricks. He certainly launched his last-chance comeback bid in emphatic fashion, scoring long goals from the right, center and left yesterday in...

Sykora nets hat trick in Devils scrimmage
Making an emphatic opening statement in his last-chance comeback bid, Petr Sykora scored a hat trick in the Devils' first varsity scrimmage Monday. Sykora scored in each period of his side's 4-2 victory over a squad led by Ilya Kovalchuk and Andy Greene, with Johan Hedberg in net. Sykora...

Parise the logical choice for Devils captain
Think it through. The Devils must make Zach Parise captain. The sole argument against his coronation is that he is on a one-year contract and might leave, making him a one-year captain. So what? If he stays, the Devils next year must strip whoever was chosen of the captaincy to...
DeBoer's Devs ready to rush
The big difference will be the green light for the red-and-black defense. Another season, another Devils coach. At least Pete DeBoer obeyed the first rule of NHL coaching -- DDAS -- on his first official day of the team's first comeback season since 1996. "Don't Do Anything Silly...

Devils wary of planes after Russian crash
In mourning lost friends, sorrow and sympathy for the Russian plane crash victims is the overwhelming emotion. But the tragedy now haunts NHLers' own travel, too. "I've had a fear of flying from the beginning, for no particular reason. It's something I don't enjoy," Patrik Elias said...

Sykora faces uphill battle for 'last chance' with Devils
Prepared for disappointment, the latest returning Devils star hopes to be pleasantly surprised in probably his last chance to play in the NHL. They do all come back to Jersey. Petr Sykora launched his comeback bid yesterday with an informal scrimmage with the Devils vets, one way to overcome jet...

Brodeur not sure he'll stay with Devils
The year of decision has arrived for the Devils' all-time great. Martin Brodeur said he hopes this isn't his swan song in New Jersey, but allows that he might leave if the team is rebuilding. "We'll see. I'm looking forward to training camp, getting started on the...

Devs go back to the future with Sykora
The Devils will try again to recreate two-thirds of their A Line, inviting winger Petr Sykora to camp on a tryout. The Devils' first-round draft pick in 1995, Sykora is among five unsigned invitees to training camp, which opens for veterans Saturday, following physicals Friday. Sykora, 34, scored 20 goals...
