Devils
January 2003

The National Hockey League (NHL) first came to New Jersey when Dr. John McMullen purchased the Colorado Rockies in 1982. Soon afterwards, Dr. McMullen officially changed the franchise name to the Devils in recognition of the legendary Jersey Devil. Since then, the team has clearly made its mark in the world of professional ice hockey.

The New Jersey Devils brought New Jersey its first Stanley Cup Championship in 1995, when they swept the Detroit Redwings in four straight games. Five years later, the Devils repeated this feat by winning their second Stanley Cup with a double-overtime victory in Game 6 over the Dallas Stars.

Now in their 20th season, the Devils are coached by Pat Burns and are currently leading the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division. The team is off to a good start and should prove to be contenders in the postseason rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
