The Devils kicked off there first game of the season against the Washington Capitals this one was all the Capitals all at first leading 3-1 , New Jersey would get back on the board with some crazy short handed goals , This game would get crazier with a 4-3 Capitals lead with 3 mintues left in the third the Devils go up on the power play and Iyla Kovalchuck shows his magic one on one and makes it 4-4, Sending this one to OT . Right off the face-off Travis Zajac gets a breakaway and ends this one 5-4 win for the Devils , Great way to open up the season
More to come !

Ales Hemsky & Ryan Whitney & Ben Eager
We followed up with Ales , Ryan and Ben , They are all thrilled to be in the Devils organization . When we interview Ales Hemsky he told the press he is very excited to skake along side his Czech team mate Patrick Elias, Hemsky will add a good core to this group and his speed will make things interesting . Ryan Whitney coming into New Jersey with one year left on his contract will he re-sign with the Devils or will he part ways . When we asked Ryan he said '' Its to early to talk about contracts , I wanna come into New Jersey to play hockey and add my performance and skills to this team '' Whitney will be paired up with Marek Zidlicky or Anton Volchecnkov . Ben Eager looked nervous in his press conference as the picture above shows you '' I am not a big fan of moving place to place but I know what my role here in New Jersey is and that is to protect my star players '' The Devils will part ways with defensemen Adam Larrson , Danuis Zubrus and Vladmir Zharkov who are heading to Edmonton
