Schedule notes:

Opponents

5 games against Philly/Isles (3 home/2 road for Philly, opposite for the Isles)

4 games against Rangers/Pens

2 Home/1 Road game against Canadiens, Lightning, Senators, Jets, Panthers

1 Home/2 Road games against Capitals, Bruins, Hurricanes, Sabres, Leafs

TV

On NBCSN 7 times

On NBC potentially twice (and if not chosen, game switches to NBCSN, so still nationally televised)

On NHL Network 6 times

Scheduling quirks

Ten sets of back-to-backs (none in January, four in February, four in March, two in April)

Seven afternoon games (Skewed largely towards early in the season, and of course the two NBC games are TBA)

Matinee game on President's Day

No St. Patrick's Day game again, but a Saturday night game on March 16th against the Habs.

Once again, the Devils are off on the trade deadline (April 3rd this year - last game before is April 1st, first game after is April 4th.)

Longest road trip and longest home stand are each only 3 games (two three-game road trips, one three-game home stand).

Home-and-home sets with the Penguins, Flyers, and Jets (Jets may have a game in between).

Finally, there's a rare two-road-games-in-a-row-in-the-same-city set against the Capitals Feb 21st & 23rd.

Alright, it's defeated me. The formatting just doesn't work right, and anything short of manually typing it out just produces a difficult to read glob of text. Soooo, if anyone wishes to manually type it out, be my guest, but I'm not interested enough to pull that off. :lol:

At least we get to ease into it without a back-to-back in the first couple weeks.

Do you guys know if I get the sports package from DirecTV if I will get the Devils games. I am located in the Harrisburg market in Central, PA.

If you have/plan to get Center Ice, you should.

If not, you'll likely only get the games on NBC/NBCSN/NHL Network.

The plus of no trips out west...no game starts after 8pm!

Is 3 games the standard max/min for homestands and road trips? Wouldn't shock me if the league gave the Rags two 3 game home stands and just one 3 game road trip (opposite of what we got) or a 3+ game homestand

Not setting foot in MSG until late April is kind of silly. How about...you know balancing it out?

I read somewhere that the Stars have a stretch of 10-of-11 at home in March, and the Blackhawks open with 2-of-12 at home because of the circus or whatever, so I don't think it's standard per se - though probably more standard in the east than the west.

Edit: To answer you question about the Rangers, they've got more "long" road trips and home stands:

2 home stands of 3 games

1 home stand of 4 games

1 road trip of 4 games

2 road trips of 3 games

Interestingly, their three "long" home stands are in the early part of the season (last one is the four-game, and it ends on March 5th), and their three "long" road trips occur after their three "long" homestands have occurred, later on in the season.

I don't know for sure, but I'd guess teams that share arenas generally probably have more long home stands and road trips. I imagine the Devils have greater scheduling flexibility due to no dates being taken by an NBA team.

The Garden is always busy between Rangers, Knicks, Big East tournament and circus in March. That would explain that scheduling

Oh my word... Devils-Rangers at MSG on 4/27, final game of the season... So many potential storylines that game might be holding, I can't even contain myself..

I'm a little disappointed in the Atlantic Division schedule matrix for this season. There'll be 2 teams you play 5 times, and 2 you play 4...

It should have gone like this: Rangers/Devils/Flyers/Pens/Isles/back to Rangers...So Devils would have had Rangers and Flyers twice. Actually, everyone would have had a recent and big rivalry those extra games

Wowwwww, I feel bad for the Winnipeg Jets players...

Why? In their back to back games, they really dont have to travel much at all between them. I feel the NHL did the best they could surrounding their distance between areas

A lot of the dates/teams are the same.

Also, there are only 5 weekend home games (Friday/Saturday)
