The New Jersey Devils are, I believe, suffering from some sort of curse by the hockey gods. Many of their key advanced stats show that the Devils should be quite a good team. However, right now they’re sixth in the Metropolitan Division; five points out of the Eastern Conference’s last wildcard spot. So, what’s wrong? For some reason, New Jersey just aren't having as much success as perhaps they could be.
More of the same for those of you who follow advanced stats I'm sure, but it blows my mind that the Devils are the 6th best PDO team in the league. Coupled with the fact that the Devils have a top-10 powerplay (I believe) and one of the best PKs in the league..hard to believe they're as far back as they are now.
