The New Jersey Devils are an NHL team based out of Newark, New Jersey that plays in the Eastern Conference. The hockey team, now referred to as the Devils, was founded as a part of the NHL’s 1974 expansion and was known as the Kansas City Scouts. Hockey just didn’t seem to play out well in Kansas City as the team was a failure both on and off the ice. The Scouts moved to Denver in 1975 and became the Colorado Rockies of the Smythe Division. Instability struck again in Colorado, as the team went through multiple owners and coaches and found little success on the ice as the Rockies. The team was then solid to Arthur Imperatore in 1978 who announced that he would move the team to northern New Jersey. In 1982, the hockey franchise found their permanent home in New Jersey and before beginning their first season of play, local fans named the team, the Devils, through a vote in local newspapers. The 1980’s served as a decade of adjustment and establishment for the New Jersey Devils, as the team attempted to build a stable franchise that would last far longer than it did in Kansas City and Denver. Hard work and patience from Devils management and fans would quickly pay off, as they became one of the most talented teams in the entire NHL during the 1990’s. After a series of player and personnel changes, Jacques Lemaire, a former coach of the Montreal Canadians took over the role of head coach in 1993. With a lineup that included Scott Stevens, Scott Niedermayer and Ken Daneyko; forwards, Stephane Richer, John MacLean, Bobby Holik, and Claude Lemieux; and goaltenders, Chris Terreri and Martin Brodeur, the team completed their first 100-point season. New Jersey was division champions three times during the late 90’s and took home Stanley Cup victories in both 1995 and 2000. For their first title, captain, Scott Stevens and the high scoring, Claude Lemieux put together an unbelievable post-season to help the Devils defeat a powerhouse Detroit Red Wings team in four games in the 1995 Stanley Cup Finals. In 2000, the team avoided a late season slump to earn yet another appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals. This time backed by young guns, Scott Gomez and Brian Rafalski, as well as their 1995 Stanley Cup winning goaltender, Martin Brodeur, New Jersey took down Mike Modano and the defending champion, Dallas Stars, in six games. Only several seasons later, the Devils capped off their hockey dynasty by bringing New Jersey its third Stanley Cup victory in just eight years. Brodeur won his third Cup in net with the Devils when New Jersey won in a heart-pounding seven-game series against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Today, the Devils continue their success in Newark and their state-of-the-art new home of the Prudential Center. New Jersey is loaded with a core of young talented players like Adam Henrique, Travis Zajac, and Cory Schneider, who brought the Devils back to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2012 and are currently seeking to bring Lord Stanley back to Jersey for the fourth time.
