Power Rankings
Even without a shootout win this season the Devils have made it to the final week still in the mix, three points back with four to play. They have points in eight of their past nine games.
Just pretend that the Devils were at least competent in the shootouts and they're right there for the wild cards. But they're not. Instead they're a rather remarkable 0-10.
There might not be much of a pulse, but the Devils still have one. Alas, they're probably reduced to playing spoiler and they're a dangerous one at that.
Talk about a back-breaking trip. The Devils go 0-fer in the Florida Swing, obviously the loss to Florida stinging the most. Suddenly their playoff hole is five points. Ruh roh.
Dear Adam Henrique: It's great to see you back in goal-scoring form; Jaromir Jagr really needed some help. Your nine goals in the past six games have been welcome. Signed, the Devils.
What is this thing the Devils did a lot this week when they make the red light flash? One of the league's most anemic offenses scored 13 goals in three games.
When you have trouble scoring as the Devils do, you get a lot of close games. That explains the four straight OT games before being shut out in Washington. Their 13 OTL top the East.
It took until February, but it appears finally the net has been handed to Cory Schneider. If the Devils score for him the way they do for Martin Brodeur, they're in business.
In one week the Devils win 7-1 and lose 7-3. Doesn't quite sound like the Devils we've come to know. Still, they won two of three games.
The Devils haven't scored more than two goals in all but two of their last 11 games. If they can generate just a little more offense, they get scary with their D/style.
Preseason Power Rankings
That's one start apiece and Cory Schneider and Martin Brodeur had very similar results. Meanwhile, scoring is still tough sans Ilya Kovalchuk.
