Devils 1-upped in Philly

Devils may split up Ilya, Zach vs. Flyers
PHILADELPHIA — The shakeup would be as big as it gets among the Devils, if Pete DeBoer goes through with separating Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk. It’s even bolder on the heels of their first playoff triumph in five years. DeBoer wouldn’t promise to open the second round against...
The matchups
PHILADELPHIA — Time’s up. The Devils’ biggest guns have had long enough to deliver what’s required, and if they don’t suddenly emerge as world-beating scorers, they’re not beating the Flyers. The Devils are sure to be tested physically by the Flyers, and though they must stand up...

Devils turn focus to gritty Flyers
The Devils have exorcised their own demons. It will require greater supernatural force to purge the Flyers of their orange goblins. The Devils were hooting and hollering in their locker room in Florida after eliminating the Panthers on rookie Adam Henrique’s double-overtime goal in their 3-2 Game 7 victory...

Zajac & Co. confident for Game 7
SUNRISE, Fla. — This is more than Game 7 with its attendant do-or-die urgency. The Devils believe, fervently, that tonight is their springboard. Or it’s their face plant. They think they have a secret weapon, the late addition that makes them so much better than their 102-point selves and, with...

Zajac’s hard work pays off for Devils

One loss from summer, defeat not an option
They don’t act like they’re going down. Instead, the Devils project determined assurance they’re the better team, barely able to resist making the Mark Messier prediction that they’ll Win Tonight, and then Thursday as well. They believe. Posture and words must translate to consecutive victories or...

Devils forward Kovalchuk won't claim he's injured
llya Kovalchuk has been avoiding questions about his health and his lack of scoring for days, and nothing has changed with the Devils on the brink of being eliminated from the playoffs by the Florida Panthers. Asked about his health, the superstar right wing smiled, and said he was fine...
Devils face off against ouster
Trash cans were not threatened. The Devils’ survival — and future — is. Coach Pete DeBoer usually doesn’t say much to his team after losses, but he says he made an exception after the Devils fell to the brink of elimination, shut out 3-0 Saturday by the Panthers in Florida. “I...

Kovy: I’ll be decoy
SUNRISE, Fla. — Sure, decoys can be expensive, but $100 million? They were forced into it, but the Devils prospered Thursday when Ilya Kovalchuk was relegated to decoy status on the power play during Game 4 of their first-round series against the Panthers. Tomas Kopecky tried to cover Kovalchuk like a...

Devils smell a 'Rat'
The Devils have given Panthers nemesis Kris Versteeg a pet name. “The Rat,” one Devil told The Post. Some of these guys probably never heard of Ken Linseman, the original “Rat” who played for four NHL teams from 1978-1992. Versteeg had five goals in four regular season games against New...
Devils, Brodeur blank Panthers
There’s still greatness in The Greatest Goalie. More than a touch of clutch, too. It looks like a setup job now, Scotty Bowman head games, the ignominy of being yanked serving as motivation for last night’s perfect performance in a desperate situation. But it could have gone the...

Brodeur nets playoff shutout mark; Devils win 4-0

Devils must put collapse in past

Devils goalie Brodeur expects to rebound in Game 4
Sitting on the bench in the second period after his shortest stint ever in a playoff game, Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur never worried whether coach Pete DeBoer would turn to him again in Game 4 against the Florida Panthers. Call it confidence. Call it whatever. The three-time Stanley Cup winner...
Another rough night for Devils’ penalty kill
The sellout crowd of 17,625 at the Prudential Center waved their red rally towels at the start of the game as the Devils quickly got off to a 3-0 lead. But perhaps fans should have waved white towels after that. All the Devils did was surrender — goals, including three...
Brodeur defends Shanahan for Hagelin suspension

Devils blow 3-0 lead, fall to Panthers
The Devils are squandering this series, just the way they squandered a three-goal lead last night. It may be too late, now that the Devils have given back home-ice advantage to the Panthers. Worse, they have given these longest-ever playoff absentees reason to believe they actually can win their first...

Devils gotta do homework
Time is running out. Martin Brodeur, Zach Parise, Bryce Salvador can be free agents, a lockout looms, the finances are “a mess,” according to an NHL official, and they are already the eldest team in the league. It’s time for the Devils to make Newark their home, their castle...

Split happens to devils
SUNRISE, Fla. — It’s still mission accomplished, but it’s really a massive opportunity squandered. The Devils’ 4-2 loss to the Panthers last night made their opening split more painful than satisfying. The Jersey Boys will now rely on the home-ice advantage they captured Friday to win their first series...
