Rangers Defeat Devils, 7-3, at Yankee Stadium
Bronx News - about 3 years
Rangers Defeat Devils, 7-3, at Yankee Stadium By Howard Goldin BRONX, NEW YORK, JANUARY 27- A below freezing temperature of 24.9 degrees did not dissuade a sell-out crowd of 50,105 from purchasing tickets to the first outdoor hockey game in New York City.  Neither the cold nor the snow showers that fell on Yankee Stadium later in the game interfered with the contest or lessened the excitement of the fans in the stands. Strangely the game was delayed for more than one hour by weather conditions, the glare of the sun.  The winning goaltender Henrik Lundquist of the Rangers told reporters after the game, “I was out there when the sun was still out and it was kind of hard.” After an enthusiastic and entertaining version of a half-dozen of the hit recordings of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons performed by cast members of the Tony winning musical Jersey Boys, the dramatic introduction of the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils began. Members of both teams walked to ...

Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - David Desharnais tied the game with 36.6 seconds left in regulation and notched the game-winner in the second round of the shootout, as the Montreal Canadiens downed the New Jersey Devils, 4-3, on Wednesday at Prudential Center. After the first two shooters found the back of the net in the shootout, Peter Budaj stuffed Travis Zajac's backhander and Desharnais followed by charging down the right wing, cutting in front, and slipping the disc through the five- hole of New Jersey netminder Cory Schneider. Patrik Elias had a chance to extend the game for New Jersey, but Budaj made a nice left pad save to send Montreal to its third straight victory. Former Devil Brian Gionta notched a goal and an assist, while Lars Eller also lit the lamp for the Canadiens, who improved to 7-0-1 over their last eight games. Budaj backstopped the triumph with 31 saves. Michael Ryder and Andrei Lok ...

Young Hockey Star RETIRES
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Ilya Kovalchuk considered staying in Russia when the NHL lockout ended in January. Ultimately he returned to play the 2013 season with the New Jersey Devils. But on Thursday, Kovalchuk made official what the Devils knew was a possibility since then. The Devils announced that Kovalchuk was returning home and retiring from the NHL. The final 12 years and US$77 million of his contract were voided, and Kovalchuk is free to play in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League. "Though I decided to return this past season, (general manager Lou Lamoriello) was aware of my desire to go back home and have my family there with me," the 30-year-old said in a statement. "The most difficult thing for me is to leave the New Jersey Devils, a great organization that I have a lot of respect for, and our fans that have been great to me." It was a move that stunned the hockey world, but not Lamoriello, who insisted nothing in the game surprises him, including Kovalchuk's abrupt departure. "This wasn' ...

WATCH: Brodeur Scores 3rd Career Goal
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Martin Brodeur playfully asked what else he could have done for the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night, and coach Peter DeBoer had an idea. "If he would've got in a fight, he would've done a little bit of everything for us," DeBoer said. Brodeur scored his third career goal and made 17 saves in his first game in a month, leading New Jersey to a 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. Brodeur had been out since Feb. 21 with a pinched nerve in his upper back and neck. New Jersey went 3-8-2 in his absence. "You know him coming back, he's going to give you a boost," New Jersey's Travis Zajac said. "But he was just awesome today." Peter Harrold, Adam Henrique and Andrei Loktionov also scored to help the Devils snap a three-game losing streak. Brodeur's play was the 13th time in NHL history that a goaltender was credited with a goal, according to the league. Jeff Skinner had the Hurricanes' lone goal while Dan Ellis made 19 saves. Caro ...

PITTSBURGH -- David Clarkson is well on his way to proving his 30-goal season last season for the New Jersey Devils was no fluke. Clarkson scored two goals to help the Devils beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 for the second time in as many days and extend their season-high winning streak to five games Sunday. Clarkson is tied for the second-most goals in the National Hockey League with nine in 12 games. "I think the big thing right now is this team is winning," Clarkson said. "It doesn't matter who's scoring. The puck's going in, but it doesn't matter who it is. We're doing good things." Ilya Kovalchuk also scored for the Devils, who ended the Penguins' five-game winning streak in the first installment of the home-and-home series on Saturday. Johan Hedberg made 23 saves as the former Penguins goalie won his first game in five starts in Pittsburgh as a member of the visiting team (1-4-1).
