Enshrine Shero already!
PITTSBURGH — When the Hall of Fame selection committee meets Tuesday in Toronto, it will be time — well past time, actually — for the 18-member board to select Fred Shero for induction. If not, it will be time — well past time, actually — for one of these members to come forward, break the...

DeBoer’s boys are class acts

They’re halfway to making history
Maybe the Devils don’t need to board a plane for their flight to Los Angeles. Maybe the Devils can simply ride Air Brodeur across the country for tomorrow night’s Game 6 against the Kings. They are only halfway home, have done only half of the heavy lifting necessary...

Devils’ Brodeur keeps the faith
