Devils clinch playoff spot by routing 'Canes 5-0
RALEIGH, N.C. — Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and two assists, Martin Brodeur made 22 saves in his third shutout of the season and the New Jersey Devils clinched a playoff berth by routing the Carolina Hurricanes 5-0 on Saturday night. Petr Sykora added a goal and an assist for...
Devils at ‘point’ of playoff bid
One point. One lousy point.With four games remaining in their regular season, that’s all the Devils need to lock up a playoff berth as they meet the Hurricanes tonight in Raleigh, N.C. Either that, or the Devils, currently in the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference, need...

Devils move one game closer to clinch
The Devils last night found the answer to their biggest worry — scoring — heading into the playoffs. Hallelujahs would have been appropriate. They still need another point, or for the Capitals to drop one, to clinch their 14th playoff berth in 15 seasons, but after beating the Lightning 6-4 last night...

NEWARK, N.J. — Ilya Kovalchuk and Marek Zidlicky scored in a 1:11 span to cap a four-goal second period and the New Jersey Devils put themselves on the doorstep of a playoff berth with a 6-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night. Dainius Zubrus, Jacob Josefson...

Devils beat Blackhawks in shootout
When they do win, the Devils still worry. They have reason. They reached a dozen shootout victories Tuesday night, tied for fourth most in NHL history, yet despite all those extra points, they’re still clawing to clinch a playoff berth. The Devils have won three of their last eight...

DeBoer experiments with Devils’ chemistry
This silver lining has a dark cloud. The Devils are rightfully ecstatic to have their No. 1 center, Travis Zajac, back in the lineup. But with only six games left before the playoffs, his return puts them back in training camp, experimenting on what to do with their lineup. It...

Devils rolled in Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH — It’s a slippery sport all right. Just look how the Devils are skidding toward the playoffs. Style points, surprisingly, do not exist in the NHL. Earning only five of their last possible 14 points, the Devils continue to underwhelm, spinning their wheels in pursuit of a playoff berth...

Devils lose to Penguins, 5-2
PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby scored in his second straight game and added an assist to help the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New Jersey Devils 5-2 on Sunday night. Crosby, who snapped out of a career-long 12-game goal drought Saturday, gave the Penguins some breathing room with a wrist shot by goalie...
Devils throw Zajac right into comeback
PITTSBURGH — So much for easing Travis Zajac into action in his second comeback. His return tonight is part of a wholesale shakeup of the team’s dormant offense. Zajac is expected to center Ilya Kovalchuk when the Devils visit the NHL’s hottest team, the Penguins. Zajac has missed 37...
Shanahan too lenient on Keith suspension
TORONTO — Brendan Shanahan should have recused himself. The NHL’s judge and jury obviously already had decided before Friday’s sham of a hearing that Duncan Keith would not be suspended for more than five games despite having thrown a concussion-inducing elbow to Daniel Sedin’s head on Wednesday night...
NHL spanks N.J. for faceoff fight
PITTSBURGH — The Three-Ring Circus at the Garden last week earned Devils coach Pete DeBoer and general manager Lou Lamoriello a trip to the NHL woodshed, The Post has learned. It remains unknown whether NHL vice president Colin Campbell also rebuked Rangers coach John Tortorella for his part in the spectacle...

Devils’ skid continues
Give up a goal and lose — that’s the Devils for six games now. They’ve got two shutout wins in the last six, but were beaten the other four. Last night the Devils’ three goals were not enough, falling to the Leafs, 4-3, in a shootout in Newark. This...

Devils’ goal: Get more shots
This is more like the Devils we have known for decades: five goals in five games. Retro isn’t always pretty. There have been 14 individual NHL players this season who have scored five or more goals in five-game streaks, illustrating the depth of the drought the Devils bring into...

Devils showing signs of fatigue
The Devils need another All-Star break. The elders skate as hard as they can, but they don’t move quite so quickly these days. The offense manages a goal per game in five, and the Devils only have won in those when their goalies pitched shutouts. They have looked like...

Hedberg rises to occasion
KANATA, Ont. — If it proves to be his final game as a Devil, Johan Hedberg made it matter.Hedberg’s fourth shutout of the season not only turned Ilya Kovalchuk’s 400th career goal into the winner, but it made him the Devils’ record holder for shutouts in a season...

DeBoer heeds Torts’ advice
KANATA, Ont — The Devils coach did what the Rangers coach told him to do. Pete DeBoer shut up. NHL VP Colin Campbell told The Post he intends to have something to say at the next GMs meeting about Monday night’s three-ring circus at the Garden. Rules against such obvious...

Kovalchuk's 400th gives Devils 1-0 win over Sens
OTTAWA — Ilya Kovalchuk scored his 400th NHL goal, and backup goalie Johan Hedberg made it stand up in the New Jersey Devils' 1-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. While working the point on the power play, Kovalchuk took a pass from defenseman Marek Zidlicky and fired a...
Tortorella puts fight in Rangers
If you’re reading these words, then chances are overwhelming you don’t need to be told that hockey isn’t a morality play. Last night’s opening-line brawl at the Garden between the Rangers and Devils during which all six starting forwards paired off three seconds after the puck...
Blueshirts outpunch Devs for playoff berth
The circus opened even before the hard, tough game really began, and it didn’t end even when the Rangers’ victory was complete. Devils coach Pete DeBoer said Rangers coach John Tortorella had “short-term memory loss” or is “a hypocrite,” after the spectacle of six players fighting off the opening...

Rangers edge Devils, clinch playoff spot in East
Brandon Dubinsky scored shortly after a fight-filled opening faceoff, and the Rangers became the first Eastern Conference team to earn a playoff spot by beating the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Monday night. Three fights broke out at the outset and that seemed to jump-start the Rangers, who had lost...
Devils sign 2010 draft pick Wedgewood
The Devils Monday announced the signing of goalie Scott Wedgewood, a third-round 2010 draftee, to an entry contract. The three-year deal is believed to be two-way, with a $640,000 NHL salary. Wedgewood went 2-0 for the bronze-winning Canadian national team at this season's World Junior Championships. He was...
As East tightens up, Rangers focus on PP
If the standings were irrelevant, there would be no reason to keep score of the NHL’s 1,230 regular-season games. But the Rangers, whose one-point hold on first place in the Eastern Conference and the Atlantic Division over the Penguins is only slightly more tenuous than their three-point hold...

Islanders no longer matter
It isn't quite accurate to suggest the Islanders are on a treadmill to obscurity, for the fact of the matter is Charles Wang’s franchise long ago arrived at that destination. And it isn’t quite correct to state the team is on the road to nowhere, because general...
Crosby, Pens drop Devs for 11th win in row
It’s the aftershock the Devils dread now when they climb out of the rubble to visit the Rangers tomorrow. The new landscape in the Eastern Conference opened up under them yesterday when Sidney Crosby and Co. swallowed them whole. Coach Pete DeBoer warned his Devils another such performance tomorrow...

Devils fall to Penguins 5-2
NEWARK — Sidney Crosby felt more comfortable in the second game of his comeback as the Pittsburgh Penguins sent the New Jersey Devils reeling. Matt Cooke scored two goals, Evgeni Malkin added his 40th of the season and Crosby had three assists to lead the Penguins to their 11th straight win...
Penguins big test for Devils
Sid is secondary. Scoring at all is the Devils’ prime problem. The Devils have picked a rotten moment to dry up, with Sidney Crosby playing his second comeback game and the Penguins winning 10 straight as they visit Newark this afternoon (1 p.m., MSG-Plus, WFAN [660 AM]). The Devils...
