Devils’ 2 stars in goal lulls
The Devils already own a 100-point 2011, a thorough recovery from last season’s calamitous first half. Yet they still can manage more if they ever get their biggest guns firing in tandem. Ilya Kovalchuk has 11 goals and Zach Parise 12 as the Devils, currently 48-29-4 in 2011, complete...

5 questions for Mike Emrick
NBC play-by-play man Mike “Doc” Emrick talks about the Rangers’ success, their Winter Classic matchup against the Flyers and his Devils’ departure with The Post’s Justin Terranova. Q: Why do you think the Rangers have turned from a peripheral playoff team to one near the top of the Eastern...

Doctor’s orders: Devils play complete game
When the Devils avoid falling on their face, they’re a formidable foe. It’s really just a couple of fixes. This time, there was no third-period fold-up, no shorthanded goals against, and the result was their eighth victory in 11 games. “Exactly what the doctor ordered,” coach Pete DeBoer...

NEWARK, N.J. — Petr Sykora scored two goals to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night. Zach Parise also scored for the Devils, who built a 3-0 lead in the second period. Martin Brodeur made 22 saves and assisted on Sykora...
Henrique proving he belongs on Devils’ top line
When a Devils center is scoring a point-per-game, even a rookie, the incumbent doesn’t just get back his top spot automatically. Adam Henrique is making a case for rookie-of-the-year votes, and his candidacy depends on remaining on the first line. So Travis Zajac, five games returned from Aug. 18...

Faceoff vs. MacLean doesn’t faze Devils
The Devils will be haunted tonight by the face — not necessarily the cause — but the personification of their worst nightmare. That face, that of John MacLean. The nightmare, last season’s first half. Pete DeBoer’s troops tonight visit Carolina, where MacLean is now an assistant coach of the Hurricanes...

Shootout good to Devils again
The Devils are living off the shootout, and that’s living dangerously. They’re 8-1 in shootouts and 10-1 after regulation this season, inflating their record into 19-14-1 respectability and playoff position. Last night, their special knack gave them a 4-3 triumph over the Capitals in Newark that camouflaged a...

Shoot! Devils need to be more selfish
It’s time for the Devils to go Do It Yourself, Ilya Kovalchuk says. He had been piling up assists, five in three prior victories. But working long and hard, a charging dynamo constantly driving on the Rangers, accomplished less than nothing in the loss — 4-1 on Tuesday — that mattered...

Devils revel in this rivalry
This belated first meeting this season might be a mere distraction for the Rangers from their mug-it-up TV show, but their less-glamorous neighbors still take this rivalry seriously. The Devils are risking their fragile confidence as well as their season-longest four-game winning streak when they host the Rangers in Newark...

Elias tops Devils’ goal list
MONTREAL — Now Patrik Elias owns all the Devils’ major career scoring records: assists, points, and now the big one — goals. One night after Scott Niedermayer’s No. 27 was hoisted to the rafters in Newark, Elias ensured that his No. 26 will be there, too.“When I think of Patrik...
Devils rookie Larsson may miss time
MONTREAL — Devils’ prized rookie Adam Larsson probably will miss two games to return to Sweden over Christmas to attend funeral services for his grandmother and “reload,” The Post has learned. Larsson may head home after the Rangers visit Newark on Tuesday, and could miss two games, a visit by the...
Brodeur sees road’s end
There are no hints dropped from the Great Brodeur upon being asked whether this 18th season might be the final one of his NHL career. There is, though, a vow from the 39-year-old goaltender, as good at his craft as anyone who has ever played the position, and the promise...

Canadiens fire coach before clash with Devils
MONTREAL — Minding their own little three-game winning streak business, the Devils today walked straight into a maelstrom here, where Canadiens coach Jacques Martin was replaced by assistant Randy Cunneyworth for the rest of the season. “That’s my luck. But that’s fine,” said Martin Brodeur, who is to face...
Devils retire No. 27, roll to third straight
It was a banner night for Devils captains, past and present. First, the Devils hoisted Scott Niedermayer’s No. 27 to the rafters in Newark, then Zach Parise continued his explosion by equalling his career best with a four-point night in a 6-3 victory over the Stars. The Devils completed...
Scott always free to share Lou’s stage
Making Scott Niedermayer an exception has been the rule for Lou Lamoriello, so it comes as no surprise the Devils general manager authorized the ceremony in Newark last night in which the, well, exceptional defenseman’s No. 27 was retired, even though he had skipped out on the Devils to...

Niedermayer 'honored' to have Devils number retired
When Scott Niedermayer was drafted by the New Jersey Devils with their first-round pick and third overall in 1991, the Edmonton, Alberta native had no clue about the Garden State. “I didn’t even know where New Jersey was,” Niedermayer said. “I had no idea what I was getting into...
Niedermayer number's up
Scott Niedermayer said former nemesis Jacques Lemaire helped make tonight's retiring of his number necessary. The former Devils defenseman already had a Stanley Cup ring when he butted heads with Lemaire, then the Devils' coach, over his style of play during the 1996-97 season. Niedermayer, the superb skater, wanted...

Devils ready for Zajac
The Devils are suddenly facing decisions of wealth, on the ice, if not at the bank. They're about to look formidable up front after 99 games of wandering in the wilderness. Sometime this weekend, perhaps tomorrow on Scott Niedermayer Night when Dallas does Newark, or Saturday against the Canadiens...
