The Devils Have Had Quality Fourth Line Play So Far This Season

The Devils Have Had Quality Fourth Line Play So Far This Season

Photo by Mike Stobe/NHLI via Nathan Bastian, Michael McLeod, and Janne Kuokkanen. The Devils fourth line so far this year has been one of the bigger pleasant surprises. In the 2016 NHL Draft, the New Jersey Devils selected 12th overall. In the first round, they took Mississauga center Michael McLeod. In the second round, 41st overall, they decided to take his teammate and linemate, right winger Nathan Bastian. They had done a number for the Steelheads that year, McLeod posting 61 points in 57 games and Bastian had 59 points in 64 games. Two picks after Bastian...

The Penalty Kill is Killing the Devils Right Now

The Penalty Kill is Killing the Devils Right Now

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The Devils have been disastrous on the penalty kill this season. What is causing these struggles and how can they fix it? Through four games, the Devils have surprised people by looking relatively competent and competitive on their way to a 2-1-1 record to open the season. They took three of four points from last year’s President’s-Trophy-winning Bruins before splitting a pair of games between the Rangers and Islanders this week. At even strength in particular, the Devils have been holding their own, only allowing one 5v5 goal against in...

Sloppy Play and Penalty Kill Struggles Lead to 4-1 Devils Loss

Sloppy Play and Penalty Kill Struggles Lead to 4-1 Devils Loss

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The Devils massively struggled today as they were bested 4-1 by the NY Islanders. Pain. 50 minutes before the game started, it was announced that Mackenzie Blackwood was placed on the COVID list, because good things don’t happen in the world. As such, Scott Wedgewood got the last-minute notice that he would be starting. He played his part in attempting to help his team win the game, but the rest of the team failed to get the memo. The Islanders started off strong from the bat - with puck possession and pressure being domineering from their...

Which New Jersey Devils Should Sit When the Team is Back to Full Strength?

Which New Jersey Devils Should Sit When the Team is Back to Full Strength?

The New Jersey Devils have reinforcements coming to improve what has been a surprisingly good team early in the season. Today we look at who the team should take out when the team has all of their personnel available. Our New Jersey Devils have been a pleasant surprise to start the 2021 NHL season; through the first three games (with a fourth on deck tonight) the team has gone 2-0-1, taking 5 of a possible 6 points. Not bad for a group expected to be competing for a high draft pick, rather than a playoff spot. The most incredible part of the start of this season is that the...

Garden State of Hockey- Episode 80: Fast Start for the Kids

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The Devils look ok out there! Today’s episode focuses on the first two games against the Boston Bruins. The game against the New York Rangers will be included in the next episode and we will be most likely moving to the biweekly format again in order to account for all of these clustered games with relevancy. However, a lot of the points regarding the Boston games held true against New York, as these young New Jersey Devils looked every bit the equal of the Bruins and displayed a level of effort that has been rare to see these past few years....

Zajac’s role was key to Devils’ shutting down Boston

Zajac’s role was key to Devils’ shutting down Boston

Photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via While youngsters Sharangovich, Hughes, and Smith have dominated the headlines, it was defense that won the Devils their opening series, and Zajac was a key to doing it. This is probably an unpopular headline, I know. Ever since Lou Lamoriello left, Devils fans have been begging … BEGGING … for the youngsters to get a shot. They become irate when low-ceiling vets like Kevin Rooney, John Hayden, Jimmy Hayes, or Vernon Fiddler clog up ice time that could go to prospects that might be special or, worst case, are John Hayden. And in our...

There’s a winner right there. | Photo by Bruce Bennett/ MacKenzie Blackwood and Jack Hughes led the way as the Devils beat the Rangers, continuing their positive start to the season. First Period The Devils’ third line took no time at all to get on the board, as Miles Wood got a stretch pass at the Rangers blue line about 25 seconds in, and shot on Georgiev. Wood was steered away from the rebound, but Travis Zajac took a swipe at the puck, which went past Georgiev on the far side of the net. 1-0 Devils. P.K.
