The 2022-23 New Jersey Devils will try to etch their names into the history books tonight.

When the puck drops at the Prudential Center at 7:05 as the Devils face off with the Toronto Maple Leafs, New Jersey will have a chance to set the franchise record for consecutive wins, 14, should it win tonight.

Jersey tied the franchise record of 13 consecutive victories on Monday when it beat Edmonton 5-2.

“I guess we’re up there with the history books,” captain Nico Hischier said Monday. “Nobody is going to take that from us now and it feels good. It proves that we’re a good team.”

The Devils certainly are a good team. They are on pace to break a record set only by the 2001 Eastern Conference Champions. The Devils have made this run possible by scoring seemingly at will. Of the 13 games they have won in a row, New Jersey has scored four or more goals in ten of those games.

Three players, Jesper Bratt, 8 goals, Nico Hischier, 9 goals, and Jack Hughes, 7 goals, are all approaching double digits in scoring already, and each are over 20 points a piece.

Least us not forget that goalie Vitek Vanecek has been outstanding in goal, recording a 2.14 goals against average.

All of this has made the Devils seemingly invincible. Will it continue? Not for long. Eventually the Devils are going to hit a snag and lose a game, maybe even two or three in a row. It’s all part of the roller-coaster that is a long 82-game season.

But, at the very least, after 19 games, the Devils have laid a foundation for success come later in the year that they can build off of.

  • Rangers Down the Kings Out in LA

    The Rangers won their second in a row, and fourth in the last six games when they downed the Los Angeles Kings 5-3.

    The Broadway Blueshirts fell behind two goals before storming back to score four of the games’ next five goals to improve to 10-6-4.

    Braden Schneider, Vincent Trocheck, Kaapo Kakko and Chris Kreider all scored for New York in the win, with Kreider accounting for the final two goals of the day for Broadway.
