The New Jersey Devils visit Sunrise on Thursday night, in the last desperate days of an unlikely bid for an Eastern Conference playoff spot. New Jersey presently sits 6th in the Metropolitan, with a 1-game win streak after beating Boston. The Devils are the team with the fewest goals-for per game in the NHL, but they also sit 9th in goals-against, so they should not be taken lightly.
As fans of a franchise that has seen more than its fair share of seasons ending in a lack of playoffs, we wondered how Devils fans are addressing the likelihood of early golf this year, and whether, much like we Panther fans did, they are finding solace in a well-crafted rebuild. Here with those answers and more, John Fischer of All About The Jersey.
