2010-11 vs. 2014-15

06 January 2015 - 10:47 AM

Everyone wants to forget the 10-11 season with Johnny Mac behind the bench, eventually fired and replaced by Lemaire.  However, now that the Devils are essentially getting healthy & have new coaches behind the bench, is there any chance they have a complete turnaround like they did late in that season?


2010-11 Season after 41 games:  10-29-2, 22 points

Next 28 games:  23-3-2, 48 points


2014-15 Season after 41 games:  14-20-7, 35 points

Next 41 games:  ??????


I still say that the roster as it stands today would not be capable of a ridiculous turnaround like in 2011, and the Devils would be better off selling at the deadline and getting future assets.  But the fact that a complete reversal DID happen a few years ago does give me slight hope.

GDT: Devils at Flyers 12/11/14 7:00PM

DEVILS (11-13-5) at FLYERS (9-13-5)



Season series: Dainius Zubrus' goal at 7:13 of the third period snapped a 4-4 tie and propelled the New Jersey Devils to a 6-4 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Oct. 9 at Wells Fargo Center. It was the Devils' fourth straight win in Philadelphia.


Devils team scope: General manager Lou Lamoriello wasn't sure if forwards Mike Cammalleri and Zubrus could play Thursday, according to Northjersey.com. Cammalleri has missed the past two games with a lower-body injury; Zubrus sat out the Devils' game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday because of a laceration to his left leg. "Sometimes it's day-to-day and now it's like hour-to-hour," Lamoriello said. Defenseman Adam Larsson has been diagnosed with the mumps and remains in isolation. Lamoriello revealed the diagnosis Wednesday, according to Northjersey.com. He also said Travis Zajac had the mumps but is expected to play Thursday. "Travis had it, but he's over it," Lamoriello said, according to Northjersey.com. "This [the confirmation] only came about the last two days. Adam is on the recovery period right now from what the doctors said."

DEVILS (8-8-2) at JETS (9-7-3)

TV: MSG+ 2
Radio: WFAN

Season series: The teams wrap up their two-game season series. The New Jersey Devils won a 2-1 shootout on Oct. 30 at Prudential Center. The Winnipeg Jets won both games last season.

Devils team scope: The Devils prepared for their four-game Canadian road trip (in which they will also face the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks) with several roster changes. New Jersey recalled goaltender Scott Clemmensen from the Albany Devils of the American Hockey League and returned goaltender Keith Kinkaid to Albany. Clemmensen had a 2.18 goals-against average, a .920 save percentage and a shutout in five games with Albany. Center Adam Henrique (lower body) and defenseman Jon Merrill (arm) will accompany the team on the road trip, according to the Devils website. Henrique has missed six games and Merrill has been out for seven games. The Devils also placed defenseman Bryce Salvador (lower body) on injured reserve; to replace Salvador, the Devils recalled defenseman Peter Harrold from Albany. Harrold has not dressed for New Jersey this season after playing 33 games last season. The Devils also announced left wing Ryane Clowe (head) will not be on the road trip. Goaltender Cory Schneider has started 18 consecutive games and could tie Martin Brodeur’s franchise record of 19 consecutive starts Tuesday.

Devils team scope: The Devils' visit to Boston will be their final stop on a three-game road trip. New Jersey, which has lost three straight games, comes in struggling offensively but may be on the verge of getting help. Two of the Devils' top-six forwards, Mike Cammalleri and Marty Havlat, are traveling to Boston and may play after missing six and eight games, respectively, with injuries. The Devils have averaged two goals per game without Cammalleri and Havlat. New Jersey hasn't scored more than three goals since the second game of the season on Oct. 11. Cammalleri's five goals still leads the Devils despite his absence. "If things are going well, you want to be a part of it," Cammalleri told NorthJersey.com on Sunday. "If things aren't going well, you want to help out. There's no fun part about not playing." The Devils will be without center Adam Henrique, defenseman Jon Merrill and forward Ryane Clowe, who are not making the trip with various ailments.
