Devils find a way to keep the Coyotes winless
When the were consistently one of the NHL’s elite franchises, one of their trademarks was a near-unwavering belief that they could defeat any opponent. It’s a trait their modern-day descendants appear to be developing. “When you find ways to win, it does build a belief that you can do it,” coach John Hynes said after...

Devils have to be happy with the big deal they didn’t make
The Best Deals You Make Are Often the Deals You Don’t Make, Part 4,604: If Kevin Shattenkirk had taken the Devils’ money on a long-term contract this summer, there is little chance Will Butcher would have signed with the club as a Mike Van Ryn-Blake Wheeler-Jordan Schultz-Kevin Hayes-Jimmy Vesey-type free agent. Butcher is the 22-year-old...
Hayward’s injury invokes memories we don’t want but can’t shake
HOUSTON — This was before big-screen TV, before hi-def TV, before any of the secular blessings of modern technology that make watching sporting events seem like you-are-there, surround-sound mega-events. Heck, it was before TV was a standard part of a college dorm room. We were sitting around an old Magnivox perched in the corner of...

Devils’ offense goes dry, while Schneider goes on IR
Even a healthy Cory Schneider might not have made a difference for the Devils. Martin Jones made 28 saves for his first shutout of the season and 16th overall in the Sharks’ 3-0 victory over the Devils at Prudential Center on Friday night. Melker Karlsson, Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi scored and Justin Braun had...

Rangers getting alarmingly close to forcing Jeff Gorton’s hand
There is no indication that a change behind the bench or in the uniformed personnel is imminent, but everyone’s antenna should be up around the Garden because what we’ve seen from the Rangers is not even close to good enough. “I can’t think about whether there could be changes. That’s not my job or focus,”...

Rangers fall again after quick start fades in loss to Devils
It looked like something finally had clicked. The Rangers were clearly the better team for the opening 25 minutes, the more active, aggressive and in-tune unit. They were more physical, more defensively responsible. They had the game’s first seven shots and 13 of the first 14. They scored first, too, on Rick Nash’s first goal...

Devils’ youth brigade make opening-day statement
The Devils’ youth movement has a lot more going for it than No. 1 overall draft pick Nico Hischier. The Devils are three deep in the rookie department.

NHL preview: Penguins chase history, everyone else chases them
And so they will be going for an historic three in a row … no, not the Penguins, who have captured two straight Stanley Cups, but the Capitals, who have won consecutive Presidents’ Trophies, for all the good that’s done them.
