After an illustrious NHL career, Scott Niedermayer was inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame in Toronto. He gave a fantastic speech, as he talked about his beginnings and his time spent in New Jersey where he won three Stanley Cups.
Many former Devils were in attendance including Scott Stevens, Colin White, Ken Daneyko, Jay Pandolfo and Joe Nieuwendyk.
General Manager Lou Lamoriello was also in attendance.
Even though the Devils’ 2013 season is over, we can still look back at some great moments in New Jersey’s playoff history.
On April 29…
1994- Claude Lemieux’s power-play goal at 13:49 of the second period proves to be the game-winner in New Jersey’s 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres in game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.
The Devils win the series 4-3, claiming their first playoff series since 1988.
2000- Martin Brodeur stops all 20 shots, and Colin White scores the game’s only goal in the Devils’ 1-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at Air Canada Centre. New Jersey evens the best-of-seven series at 1 game apiece.
2006- Patrik Elias records a goal and two assists and Brian Gionta’s shorthanded goal proves as the game-winner as the Devils polish off a sweep of the Rangers with a 4-2 win in game 4 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.
Former New Jersey Devils’ defenseman Colin White returns to New Jersey tonight as the Devils take on the Sharks. During the offseason the Devils bought out Colin White’s contract. He signed with the Sharks and has fit in well with them. Hopefully the Devils faithful give him a nice hand when he steps out on the ice tonight. He has really helped out the Devils organization in his tenure with the team.
