Tracking the Devils extremely dim odds of making the playoffs.
Goals for Garrett is hosting their Annual Night Out with the New Jersey Devils fundraising event at the Saturday, 4/8 Devils vs. Islanders game at Prudential Center. Goals for Garrett was founded in 2014 by New Jersey resident Kevin McCormack. Devastated by the loss of his son, Garrett, to bicuspid aortic disease, Kevin wanted to do something that would honor Garrett’s life while helping others. Each year Goals for Garrett organizes a night out with the New Jersey Devils as its primary annual fundraiser. All proceeds benefit Hockey in New Jersey, which inspires youth to develop life skills, succeed academically and create positive relationships through the sport of hockey.

Chill is beyond the word. Jeff Petry guides Kyle Palmieri into Carey Price. While one may understand Price's frustration, taking multiple shots at a fallen, defenseless Palmieri is beyond acceptable. Especially when Petry continues to pin him down. Price only received two roughing minors. How is he in this game?
Per the article, Trouba's request isn't about money; it's because he feels the right side of Winnepeg's defense is loaded and that he is a better fit elsewhere.
As we know, NJ now has a decent hole on the right side. So a few questions come up;
1) Is Trouba a fit on the right side given the players the Devils have (Severson/Santini mainly)?
2) Is it worth the package of picks/prospects/players it would take to trade for him and what would said package be?
Devils sign defenseman Brandon Gormley to one year contract.
An April fool's joke? By the Devils? You're yanking my chain, right?
Boucher's third period tally was the Devils second of the night and the game winner in their 2-1 victory over the Oilers. New Jersey plays next, in Philadelphia against the Flyers on Tuesday. Click the link above to watch Boucher's GWG via NHL gamecenter.
David Schlemko's early third period goal was not enough to hold off the Maple Leafs. Toranto's Tyler Bozak scored at the 17:54 mark which sent the game to overtime and eventual to a shoot out. The Devils were outshot 39-34 in the loss on top of blocking 29 shots. NJ is now 5-1-1 in their last 7 games (11pts) and is currently in a playoff spot. The next game is a matinee at the Rock this Saturday against the NHL point leading Washington Capitols. (Link to NHL game center)
The Devils take down Lundqvist and the Rangers in a 3-2 nail biter at the Rock. New Jersey had trouble getting shots on net and Cory Schnieder kept the game within striking distance. This all paid off in the the 3rd period when David Schlemko scored the GWG and his 8th PPP (1g-7a ). New Jersey is 5-1-0 in their last six games and have given up 10 goals in that span. On Thursday the Devils will head to Toronto to face off against Lou Lamoriello's Maple Leafs.
The link above is the box score for the uneventful first period. Both teams had good chances but couldn't find a way to score.
