General manager Ray Shero named assistant coach Alain Nasreddine as head coach on an interim basis, but that doesn't mean the search for a new coach...

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Jack Eichel had a goal and two assists, and the Buffalo Sabres used a five-goal first period to beat the New Jersey Devils 7-1 Monday night. Eichel scored 2:46 into the game, and Conor Sheary scored twice during the first 20 minutes. Jeff Skinner and Rasmus Asplund also connected in the first, and Victor Olofsson and Henri Jokiharju scored in the second. Linus Ullmark made 44 saves for the Sabres. Louis Domingue was pulled after allowing five goals on 15 shots. He was replaced by Mackenzie Blackwood, who made 15 saves. New Jersey Devils goaltender Louis Domingue (Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports) The Sabres blew out New Jersey while celebrating the 50th anniversary of the birth of the franchise. Buffalo was awarded an expansion team on Dec. 2, 1969. The team celebrated “Founders’ Night” and honoured original owners Seymour H. Knox III and brother Northrup R. Knox, now deceased. Members of the Knox family, including Seymour’s widow Jean, were...

Taylor Hall's future with the New Jersey Devils is of much speculation these days. He'll be an unrestricted free agent (UFA) in July, and with the Devils' awful start to the season, it's looking less likely he'll sign before the Feb. 24 Trade Deadline. That means general manager Ray Shero will have a decision to make, and it appears he's begun listening to teams about potential trade offers.  https://twitter.com/PierreVLeBrun/status/1200830408264470528?s=20 There's still plenty of time until Feb. 24 rolls around. But the closer that date approaches without Hall signed will only make Shero's decision easier. And with the Devils having a massive hill to climb to get into playoff contention, he may have no choice but to trade Hall. Here are two recent comparables that could give us a baseline if the Devils happen to trade Hall away. The Max Pacioretty Trade When the Montreal Canadiens traded Pacioretty in Sept. 2018, his situation wasn't too different from...

The New Jersey Devils' season has not gone the way they would've liked or expected, and it got even worse yesterday afternoon. Coming off a 6-4 win against the Montreal Canadiens on Thanksgiving, the Devils were shutout by the New York Rangers in a Saturday matinee. And how they ended up losing by a score of 4-0 could be defined as one of the lowest points of the season.  https://twitter.com/cmasisak22/status/1200876866808242176?s=20 The Devils had eight power plays but didn't convert on one and had only seven shots on goal with the man advantage. To make matters worse, they gave up two short-handed goals as well. They won't win many games playing like that, and it's not like these issues have been a one-game problem, either. Something has to change, and it has to come soon, or the season will be another lost cause before Christmas.  Devils' Special Teams Are Slumping After yesterday's performance, the Devils are converting on just 12.9% of their...
