Devils draft Ty Smith in 1st round
DALLAS — There were a couple teams in the first round of the draft that seemingly benefited from what was an unpredictable first couple picks, and one of them was the Devils.

‘Have another donut’ clash still lives in infamy 30 years later
“Schoney,” I called out rather ineffectually, attempting to grab the Devils’ coach and prevent him from getting into trouble as the brouhaha escalated in the corridor leading to and from the Meadowlands ice. “Schoney …” But it was too late. There was no stopping Jim Schoenfeld, and no stopping the trouble that would be visited...

Long Island Lou Lamoriello? Don’t rule out one last rescue
TORONTO — WWLD. What Would Lou Do? What Would Lou Lamoriello Do if the Maple Leafs believe it’s time to move one of hockey’s legendary executives out of the general manager’s chair onto a comfy adviser’s couch in order to slide either Kyle Dubas or Mark Hunter in the lead role? Would Lamoriello willingly recede...

The Devils have made plenty of strides in recent weeks with their return to the Stanley Cup playoffs after a five-year hiatus, but they’re not ready for the run to end.

Devils’ top defenseman may miss Game 5 as Lightning get off for hit
Nikita Kucherov is skating away scot-free as Sami Vatanen pays the punishment. The Lightning’s 100-point scorer will not have a hearing with the NHL’s department of player safety after his hit on Vatanen knocked the Devils’ top defenseman out for the night Wednesday in Game 4 of the first-round series. Devils coach John Hynes said...

Devils drop Game 4 and lose key player after controversial hit
This was always a huge task sitting in front of the Devils, but it became almost impossible to do shorthanded. And now, their season is on the line. Having lost their top defenseman, Sami Vatanen, late in the first period on an unpenalized high hit from Nikita Kucherov, the Devils went on to lose Game...
Seinfeld ‘Face Painter’ surprises Devils fans for Game 4
The Devils could use the energy of one of their most prominent fans, whose famous TV character made a cameo appearance at the Prudential Center Wednesday night. Patrick Warburton, best known for his role as David Puddy in the ’90s sitcom “Seinfeld,” brought one scene back to life from the 1995 episode “The Face Painter,”...

Taylor Hall answering will-to-win question and playing like an MVP
The body of work that encompasses who wins the Hart Trophy stops at the end of the regular season, but there are those moments that bleed into the playoffs that either confirm or confound a submitted ballot. Through three postseason games, it’s been nothing but MVP confirmation for Taylor Hall. The Devils forward has been...
Lightning fan wants arena change after hockey puck to face
A Florida woman went to a playoff game to cheer on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday, but unfortunately left the arena with more than she bargained for. Sabrina Pattie was seated in the first level at the Amalie Arena in Tampa just outside the protective netting when a puck flew into the seats and...

Taylor Hall hears ‘MVP’ as feisty Devils seize playoff momentum
All of sudden, it’s a series. And a good one. The Devils were able to claw out a 5-2 victory over the Lightning in Game 3 of their first-round series Monday night in Newark, cutting the deficit in the best-of-seven contest to 2-1. It was a whale of a game for the Devils’ Hart Trophy...

Devils’ Game 3 lineup shakeup could bring both a return, debut
John Hynes is not about to sit on his hands. The Devils coach knows he needs to do something or the club’s first time back in the playoffs in the past six years is going to be a short one. So Hynes is trying to halt the losses to the Lightning with a few unnamed...
Scott Stevens is just the leader the Rangers need
If the Rangers are seeking a coach who can teach while re-establishing a no-nonsense culture and hard-edged identity on Broadway, then management should simply look across the river to where Scott Stevens lives. The Devils logo that the Greatest 100 defenseman wore on his chest while winning those three Stanley Cups from 1995-2003 should not...

Devils are in a hole and may have a goalie controversy brewing
TAMPA, Fla. — This isn’t the Keith Kinkaid the Devils were relying on during the stretch run of the regular season, and now they are in a hole. Alex Killorn scored twice during a four-goal second period, helping the Lightning beat the Devils 5-3 on Saturday in Game 2 in the first round of the...

Why ex-Devils great thinks Taylor Hall is MVP worthy

Devils get rude welcome to the playoffs
TAMPA, Fla. — The Devils just got a lesson why the Lightning are the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The Lightning got early goals from four players — none of them named Nikita Kucherov or Steven Stamkos — before holding off the Devils for a 5-2 victory Thursday night in Game 1 of the...
Devils’ lack of playoff experience not a concern for one veteran
On the eve of the Devils first playoff game in close to six years, there was one message above all to this young club. “It’s going to be fun, that’s all,” veteran Brian Boyle said after Wednesday’s practice in Newark, one that was attended by a few hundred fans who cheered the Devils on as...

Devils finally know who they’ll face in Stanley Cup playoffs
It took an extra day for the Devils to find out their playoff opponent. The Panthers’ 4-2 win over the Bruins in Boston — a makeup game played Sunday night after snow forced a postponement earlier in the season — means the Lightning are the top seed in the Eastern Conference and the Devils will...

The list of better sports cities than NYC is long and disturbing
WASHINGTON — The NBA and the NHL seasons will end this week, and the Devils will join the Yankees as the only two of our nine teams from the past 12-month sporting cycle to earn a playoff bid. So the Devils and Yankees spare us from what would otherwise have been a candidate for the...
