Devils Daily: Ruff, Toews Call Out Their Own



New Jersey Devils

It might be the season of giving, but coaches and players haven’t been afraid to call out their own players or teammates down the stretch and headed into the holiday. Lindy Ruff did it in New Jersey following their overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on some costly, detrimental mistakes. Devon Toews did it in Colorado the Avs, who many peg as a Stanley Cup contender, lost to the NHL-worst Chicago Blackhawks.

Elsewhere, the captain returns in San Jose with a big smile. Nikita Zadorov reflects on his time in Calgary. And that former second-overall selection who retired a few days ago? Yeah, that might not have actually happened…

Let’s do that hockey.

New Jersey Devils

New Jersey Hockey Now: Following the Devils’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers on Tuesday, head coach Lindy Ruff stated Jack Hughes still had some learning to do.

More NJHN: A report by Pierre LeBrun of TSN and The Athletic suggests that the Devils’ No.1 defenseman, Dougie Hamilton, will be out until the playoffs start, perhaps a bit longer. For whatever reason, the Devils just don’t play as well at home in front of their own fans as they do while they’re on the road. If they’re going to stay in the playoff hunt, that’s going to have to change.
