The New Jersey Devils will spend the weekend in Alberta. First, they will play the Calgary Flames in an afternoon game. It will be Tyler Toffoli versus Yegor Sharangovich among other matchups. Talk about it as it happens here.
As the captain of the Devils, fans of this team know just how important Nico Hischier is. However, based on what has happened since he has come back from injury, he needs some more spotlight on him, which I want to do today.
Though the Devils are 5-1 in their last six, are they actually on the cusp of turning the season around, or have their performances been a mirage in the desert?
Yeah so here we are 20 plus games into the season and the hottest topic is, once again, goaltending.
The 2023-24 New Jersey Devils goaltending has not been good. With few answers for help, perhaps the team should consider changing their goaltending coach, Dave Rogalski. This post makes a case against Rogalski as he is in the middle of his fourth season with the team in this role.

The Devils almost fumbled the bag at the eleventh hour, but a stellar game from Akira Schmid and the Hughes brothers propelled them past the Flyers in overtime 4-3.
With the way the goaltending splits have been so far this season, and the results (or lack thereof) it’s time for the Devils to give more starts and lean more heavily on Akira Schmid.
The Islanders looked like they were going to frustrate the Devils into a bad loss, but the Devils overcame.
Nico is back and we are all thankful.
In the seventh weekly Metropolitan Division snapshot of this season, the New York Rangers remain on top, Columbus finally won some games, the New Jersey Devils continue to struggle, and more in this week’s roundup of what happened in the division.
The Captain is back, and this team sure looked different.
After talking big in the media about the heart-to-heart during practice and the need for change, the Devils look as bad as ever and drop a miserable game to a bad Metropolitan team. They’ve officially run out of rope and their legs are dangling off the gallows.
The New Jersey Devils on the ice have underwhelmed this season. So has the organization when it comes to the experience at the Prudential Center for attending a game. Both lack effort as detailed in this rant.

The Post-Game Discipline for Headshots Mess Caused by Perverse Incentives in the CBA, the NHL, the NHLPA, & the Refereeing
Nico Hischier’s impending return and Jacob Trouba’s headshot on Tomas Nosek has got me thinking about NHL discipline for headshots. The NHL’s post-game discipline is a mess caused by the league, the player’s union, and the referees.
After collapsing against the Rangers, the Devils mirrored that performance by surrendering three goals in under ninety seconds against a Detroit team that’s 1-4 in their last five. More concerning than the loss is how they lost: without any fight-back or pride.
