Devils Daily: Goal Drought Ended, Internal Conflict Brewing, & More

The New Jersey Devils received an off-day yesterday following a four-game, seven-day road trip. New Jersey prepares today to take on the Boston Bruins on Wednesday. They’ll hit the ice at 11 AM for morning skate. It’s a strange two-day schedule this week as the Devils travel to Columbus to face the Blue Jackets on Saturday. Then, it’s a jam-packed schedule as New Jersey hots four games next week at home through December 23rd.

There was no shortage of news both Devils and league related after the off-day yesterday.

A former Devil ends a goal drought, some internal hostility is brewing in Colorado, and some more trade talk involving the Montreal netminders.

Let’s do that hockey.

New Jersey Devils

New Jersey Hockey Now: It was a bit of a shock to hear Tomas Tatar reject an offer to remain in New Jersey with the Devils. Now with the Colorado Avalanche, the Slovakian forward has struggled a bit. He’s finally registered his first goal of the season with the Avs 28 games into the season.

NJ.com: Following their loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday, Devils goaltender Akira Schmid took the blame for leaving points on the table citing he “made too many mistakes.”

National Hockey Now

Pittsburgh Penguins

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: Losers in four straight games, Penguins President of Hockey Operations and General Manager, Kyle Dubas, firmly backs head coach Mike Sullivan.

Montreal Canadiens

Montreal Hockey Now: The Canadiens are carrying three goaltenders. There are plenty of teams around the NHL that could use an upgrade in the crease that Montreal can potentially provide, including the Devils.

Boston Bruins

Boston Hockey Now: Head coach Jim Montgomery has been conservative with young Boston forward Matthew Poitras. Here’s why it’s the right approach.

Colorado Avalanche

Colorado Hockey Now: Arturi Lehkonen’s father, a journalist in Finland, gave his opinion on what he sees in the Avalanche. The father of the injured forward was quite forward of Mikko Rantanen’s play, calling the star forward out. Rantanen certainly responded.

San Jose Sharks

San Jose Hockey Now: Former Devils top prospect, Shakir Mukhamadullin talks about his KHL roots, his last chat with Rodion Amirov, and more with SJHN.
