After opening the 2014-15 season with a 4 game road trip, the New Jersey Devils returned to the Prudential Center Saturday night to begin their home campaign against the San Jose Sharks.  The Devils opened up their season on October 9th in Philadelphia with a 6-4 win, and then followed that up with a 5-1 win in Florida against the Panthers.  The Devils then stayed in the “Sunshine State,” and beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in a close 2-1 win.  On October 16, the Devils suffered their first loss of the season, losing 6-2 to the Capitals in Washington.

A lot has happened in the National Hockey League since March 10, 2013.

The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup, and so have the Los Angeles Kings. The New York Rangers made the Stanley Cup Finals after trading away their captain in 2014. TJ Oshie of the St. Louis Blues went from a little known right winger to a national superstar. The success of the Winter Classic led to the Stadium Series and more outdoor hockey and Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player in league history to score 700 goals.

One thing that hasn’t happened since March 10, 2013? The New Jersey Devils have not won in the shootout in a regular season game.

Yesterday the NHL announced a few rule changes for the 2014-15 season that ranged everywhere from the rink to the shootout to face-offs.
