Mike Ribeiro knew the situation. So when he had time, space and saw Alex Ovechkin with an open look at the net, he knew exactly where the pass was going.
The superstar isn't known for his defensive prowess, but coach Adam Oates said he discussed a penalty-killing role with Ovechkin and wouldn't hesitate to put him out there in those situations.
When the New Jersey Devils fell behind the Los Angeles Kings three games to none in the Stanley Cup Final, the series looked to be over. But after the Game 3 loss, goaltender Martin Brodeur spoke up.
Goal-scoring isn't Ilya Kovalchuk's problem. Count 'em: 406 goals in 779 NHL regular-season games. That's what earned him a 15-year, $100 million contract with the New Jersey Devils.
It was hard to tell from the Los Angeles Kings' side after Game 1 that they even had a lead on the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup Final. Much of the talk was about it being perhaps their worst game of the playoffs and the need to be better.
The New Jersey Devils already eliminated John Tortorella and his playoff reign of confrontational press conferences. But Thursday, Peter DeBoer sounded a little bit like the New York Rangers' coach when asked about what went wrong in the Game 1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.
The New Jersey Devils knew from the numbers that Los Angeles was deadly on the road. The Kings came into the Stanley Cup Final 8-0 away from Staples Center.
Simon Gagne is finally healthy enough to play for the Los Angeles Kings. But with as well as the Western Conference champions have been playing, it is tough for the former All-Star forward to get back into a loaded lineup.
Peter DeBoer, in the eyes of many, was a surprise choice as the next coach of the New Jersey Devils. Fresh off the franchise's worst season in recent memory, general manager Lou Lamoriello turned to DeBoer to rescue a team that was low on morale, lower on scoring punch and desperate for a new identity.
A year after missing the playoffs for the first time since 1996, the New Jersey Devils are going back to the Stanley Cup finals, thanks to a rookie, a 40-year-old goaltender and a coach who'd never been to the postseason in the NHL.
John Tortorella stood out again at a playoff news conference. Only this time it was because of his feistiness toward the New Jersey Devils and not for his brevity and contentiousness with the media.
The Eastern Conference final between the New Jersey Devils and rival New York Rangers is turning out to be exactly what everyone thought.
For the third straight series, the New York Rangers are basking in the glow of a 1-0 lead earned in the confines of "The World's Most Famous Arena."
The New Jersey Devils don't need to look far to find the positives and negatives of lengthy waits in the postseason.
Nicklas Backstrom's value to the Washington Capitals is impossible to quantify. As New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer pointed out, in a comparison to Reggie Jackson, Backstrom is "the straw that stirs the drink there for that team on a lot of nights."
New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer contends that he didn't think the series was that lopsided, even when his team was in a 3-0 hole.
"I don't think we believe we deserve to be in the hole we're in," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "I think we played better than the situation indicates, but that's hockey. We have to persevere here, and stick with it and find a solution."
