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 felt like something finally had clicked, like a light being switched on. 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...

Devils no longer unbeaten
Nicklas Backstrom had a goal and three assists and the Capitals knocked the surprising Devils from the unbeaten ranks with a 5-2 victory Friday night. T.J. Oshie had two goals and an assist, and Alex Ovechkin scored his ninth of the season and set up Backstrom’s power-play tally to help Washington hand the Devils their...

Devils make early statement in battle of unbeatens
TORONTO — Brian Gibbons had a rare 3-on-5 goal, Miles Wood and Pavel Zacha each scored twice and the unbeaten Devils beat Toronto 6-3 on Wednesday night to end the Maple Leafs’ perfect start. Blake Coleman also scored, and Cory Schneider made 47 saves to help New Jersey open 3-0-0 for the first time since...

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. Hobey Baker Award winner Will Butcher and Swedish import Jesper Bratt stole a lot of the spotlight from Hischier in a 4-1 season-opening victory over the Avalanche...

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. No team ever has won three straight Presidents’ Trophies — fess up, you too...
Devils preview: Will young core spur improvement after hitting bottom?
The Devils got the payoff for being the worst team in the Eastern Conference last season (and tied for the third-worst team in the league), earning themselves the No. 1 pick in the draft. Although there wasn’t a generational prospect available like a Sidney Crosby or Connor McDavid, general manager Ray Shero thought long and...

Devils forward Brian Boyle has leukemia
Devils forward Brian Boyle has been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, a type of bone-marrow cancer that the team’s doctor says can be treated with medication. Boyle has been away from the team during training camp while getting diagnosed. On a conference call Tuesday, Boyle says he hopes to start playing hockey again soon. General...

Devils make huge commitment to young defenseman
The Devils signed 23-year-old defenseman Damon Severson to a six-year, $25 million contract Monday, carrying a hefty annual salary-cap hit of $4.167 million. The righty blueliner, who was an restricted free agent without arbitration rights, spent his first complete season in the NHL last season, registering three goals and 28 assists for the Devils. General...

Rangers giving former Devils agitator a tryout
The Rangers’ wait continues on Alex Kerfoot’s small “d” decision, with the free-agent center from Harvard “still processing” his options as of late Tuesday, according to one individual familiar with the situation. But as the Rangers — and Canucks, plus perhaps another finalist in the bidding for the 23-year-old — awaited word, the Blueshirts did...

Travis Zajac injury opens door for Devils youngsters
If injury equals opportunity, then the Devils unfortunately are finding more space for their youngsters. Alternate captain Travis Zajac will be out four to six months after having surgery on a torn left pectoral, it was announced Thursday. The injury occurred this past week while Zajac was doing his offseason training, and it leaves the...

Why new Devil sees ‘positives’ in joining a struggling franchise
It is going to be a big change of scenery and culture for Marcus Johansson, but he is embracing the new attitude. Johansson was traded Wednesday from the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Capitals to the Devils, who finished last in the Eastern Conference this past season and have been out of the playoffs for five straight years....

Ilya Kovalchuk screws over Devils for last time
Despite the best efforts of Devils general manager Ray Shero, Ilya Kovalchuk is heading back to Russia. Shero attempted to trade Kovalchuk, and that intensified over the past four days. It seemed like Columbus might have been a good landing spot, and same with his former coach, Peter DeBoer, out in San Jose. The Rangers...

This is a turning point for bold Devils, who won’t stop now
Ray Shero asked that Devils fans look at his actions as general manager and recognize the direction he is trying to lead the team. And Shero is correct that the evidence is there, and at the very least he isn’t sitting on his hands. The active offseason continued when he was able to pry salary-cap...

What Devils do now after taking Kevin Shattenkirk body blow
It is going to be difficult for Devils general manager Ray Shero to see what is going on across the Hudson River this season and not cringe. Shero not only missed out on his most coveted free-agent target, but it was rubbed in his face when righty defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk signed a four-year, $26.6 million...

Devils setting their sights on Kevin Shattenkirk
Ray Shero finds himself in an enviable position, as the general manager of the Devils has created a relatively blank slate to continue his rebuilding process. Enter his hot pursuit of the top free agent on the market, righty defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, who might have priced himself out for teams with better chances to win...
