With Slava Voynov's suspension and the recent shootings in Ottawa, St. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo reminds us why we all love hockey. Anthony Pucik, Matt Moro and Brendan Bowers also discuss how the Rangers and Rick Nash have started to get hot, while the Islanders and Devils need to get back on the winning track.

When the Rangers traded Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Rick Nash back in the summer of 2012, they anticipated receiving the left wing that averaged over 30 goals a season. In his first two seasons with the Blueshirts, however, Nash only scored 21 goals in the lockout shortened 2012-13 campaign and 26 last season where he only played 65 games due to a concussion. But this season, the Rangers might finally be getting the Nash they have been expecting.

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.

With the New York Islanders shifting to Brooklyn and the much newer Barclays Center to start next season, this will be the final season at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for Long Island’s team. And while Barclays Center is the state-of-the-art facility the team has needed for years, the reality of leaving Nassau County has hit fans hard.

It almost seems like yesterday that the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Rangers to win the 2014 Stanley Cup. However, it’s been more than four months since Jonathan Quick and company hoisted the Cup, and a new season is upon us. Some teams began their 2014-2015 campaigns last night, but the New Jersey Devils are set to begin their season tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers. Here’s what you need to know about Jersey’s team heading into the season.

Devils' Shootout Woes

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.
