It’s been a reoccurring theme all season. The New Jersey Devils have failed to play a full 60 minute game several times this season. In Saturday’s 3-2 loss to the Boston Bruins, it was the same old, same old.

The New Jersey Devils dropped a 3-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday night in New England.

The Bruins out shot the Devils 40-17. The Devils had their best period in the third in which six of their 17 shots came from. It was also where Kyle Palmieri scored his 20th goal of the season. The third was also a period that saw the buzzer go off twice randomly, with no explanation.

The Devils were out shot 16 to five at the end of the first period. If that doesn’t sum up the Devils offense this season, then nothing does.

Cory Schneider played brilliantly, despite giving up three goals, making 37 saves. It was the one bright note on the night for the Devils. New Jersey also gave Boston too many chances on the power play, with five. They got lucky when a goal was disallowed after a challenge from John Hynes.


The Devils should see this as the start of the tank to try and get better drafting position. In a draft that’s not that deep, it makes sense in the long run.
