Since being founded in 1974 as the Kansas City Scouts, the modern-day franchise that is the New Jersey Devils remains one of the most popular teams in the state. After a run of success in the second half of the 1990s, the Devils have struggled over the past decade, but there is plenty of reason for optimism looking into the future.

In the 2022-23 NHL season, the New Jersey Devils punched through to the postseason for just the second time since 2011-12, winning their first-round series against the rival New York Rangers. Despite falling short in the second round versus the Carolina Hurricanes, the Devils are led by a young core who fans are hopeful bring the franchise back to regular postseason appearances.

The 2023-24 season has so far been a mixed bag for the New Jersey Devils, as they sit in the bottom half of the Metropolitan Division with largely inconsistent play. Head coach Lindy Ruff has managed the team since 2019, and the Devils are led by an offensive core that includes Jesper Bratt (C), Jack Hughes (C), and Tyler Toffoli (RW). In the net, goalkeeper Vitek Vanecek is tasked with stopping pucks, and his save percentage of 90% is amongst the best in the division.

How can I watch or stream the New Jersey Devils in New Jersey?

Fans of the New Jersey Devils living in New Jersey can watch all non-nationally televised games on the regional sports network MSG Network, the same network that airs New York Rangers and New York Knicks games. If you have cut the cord on traditional cable services, the streaming services Fubo TV and DIRECTV STREAM offer MSG Network, as well as the nationally televised games on TBS, TNT, NHL Network, and ESPN.

All of the aforementioned networks are also covered on other streaming services, which include Fubo, DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu+ Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. It is also worth noting that if you are a subscriber to the NHL’s Center Ice package, which streams all NHL games across the league, New Jersey Devils games will be blacked out for those who live in the New Jersey and New York Metro area markets.

Residents of the Garden State might think there is only one or two ways to get involved in betting on the NHL, but the fact of the matter is that there are many. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the bet types that are available for the New Jersey Devils when it comes to wagering.

  • Puck Line: One of the most popular wagering types when it comes to betting on the New Jersey Devils is the Puck Line, which is just hockey’s version of the Point Spread. Simply put, the Puck Line is how many goals the oddsmaker forecasts a team will win or lose by. A negative number represents the team expected to win by 1.5 goals (favorite), while the +1.5 represents the team receiving 1.5 goals (underdog).

Example: New Jersey Devils (-1.5) vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (+1.5). In this scenario, the New Jersey Devils have to beat the Penguins by at least two goals for Devils Puck Line bettors to be winners. Examples of a winning Puck Line score are Devils 3 Penguins 1, Devils 5, Penguins 0, or Devils 2 Penguins 0.

  • Moneyline: A popular wagering type across all major sports league betting, a moneyline wager is one on which the team will win the game, including overtime and shootouts. Like the Puck Line, a negative number indicates the game’s favorite, which requires more money risked for less money won. The inverse is true for positive signs, as they’ll require less money risked for more money won.

Example: New Jersey Devils (-130) vs. New York Islanders (+120). In this scenario, the Devils just have to beat the Islanders in the game, no matter if that happens at the end of regulation, overtime, or a shootout. In this example, a Devils bettor who wagers $130 would be returned $230 ($130 risked + $100 won) if the Devils win the game.

  • Total: As the name suggests, a total is a number set by oddsmakers that forecasts the number of goals they expect to be scored by both teams, combined. If one team scores four goals and the other scores seven, regardless of who wins the game, the final total for that game would be seven. In betting on the total, any total set at 6.5 or under would make seven goals an “Over” winner.

Example: New Jersey Devils vs. Washington Capitals (O/U 6.5). In this scenario, the Devils and Capitals have to combine to score more than six goals in a game for “Over” bettors to win their bet. Examples of final scores where “Over” backers win are Devils 4 Capitals 3, Devils 7 Capitals 0 or Capitals 5 Devils 4.

  • Futures: A bet on the Futures market in the NHL is a wager that is on the outcome of a season-long (future) outcome. While Futures are most popular in the NHL offseason, many Futures markets are reset anytime there is no NHL game in play.

Example: New Jersey Devils to Win the Stanley Cup (+2900). In this scenario, the Devils have to make the postseason, and then win all three Eastern Conference, as well as the Stanley Cup Finals, to be graded as winners. At these odds, a $100 bettor would walk away with $3,000 ($100 risked + $2,900 won) if the Devils win the Stanley Cup.

History of the New Jersey Devils

With a history dating back to the early 1970s, the history of the New Jersey Devils is a complicated one that endures to this day. Let’s take a quick look at the history of the New Jersey Devils, beginning with their founding in 1972.

  • 1972: Following the 1971 season, the rapidly growing NHL announced plans to bring two more expansion teams into the league. One of the towns that applied for a new team was Kansas City, Missouri, which in 1972 was granted the rights to a new NHL franchise they named the Kansas City Scouts.
  • 1974: The Kansas City Scouts played their inaugural season, getting their first win against the other expansion team of 1972, the Washington Capitals. They would finish the season in second to last in the NHL standings, earning more points than only the Capitals.
  • 1976: After just two seasons in Kansas City, interest in the franchise had waned, as the team moved operations to Denver and renamed themselves the Colorado Rockies. After a strong start in their first season out West, the Rockies couldn’t overcome an 18-game losing streak as they failed to make the playoffs.
  • 1978: With just one postseason berth in franchise history, the team was sold to a New Jersey businessman Arthur Imperatore who desired to move the team back to his home state. With three other teams in the New York Metro area already, Imperatore’s plans were put on hold for the time being.
  • 1982: After nearly two decades of mediocrity, only making the postseason two times, the Rockies were sold to another New Jersey businessman, John McMullen, who also owned the Houston Astros. After reaching a deal with the NHL to compensate the area’s three other teams (Rangers, Islanders, and Flyers), McMullen succeeded in moving the team east to New Jersey, renaming the franchise the New Jersey Devils.
  • 1988: After a complete rebuild that started when McMullen purchased the team, the Devils put together their first winning record in franchise history. They would also make the postseason that season, making it all the way to the Wales Conference Finals to mark the most successful full season in franchise history.
  • 1995: In a lockout-shortened 1994-95 NHL season, the New Jersey Devils made their way to the Eastern Conference Finals for the second year in a row, this time punching through. In their Eastern Conference Finals series, they beat the Philadelphia Flyers, setting up a matchup with the league’s best team, the Detroit Red Wings, sweeping them in four games for their first Stanley Cup.
  • 2000: After five more years of getting close, the Devils once again returned to the Stanley Cup Finals. In the first year following McMullen’s sale of the team to Puck Holdings, the New Jersey Devils beat the Florida Panthers, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Philadelphia Flyers en route meeting the defending champion Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup Finals. In a back-and-forth 2000 Stanley Cup Finals, they would beat the Stars for the franchise’s second Stanley Cup.
  • 2003: Following an offseason that included trading stars Jason Arnott and Petr Syrkora away, the Devils once again returned to the promised land. Beating Boston Bruins, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Ottawa Centers in the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Devils would meet the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the Stanley Cup Finals. Led by Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Martin Brodeur, the Devils would claim their third-ever Stanley Cup trophy in seven games.
  • 2007: After playing their home games at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, NJ for nearly three decades, the Prudential Center was completed in Newark, NJ. Playing their season home opener on October 27, 2007, at the new arena, the Devils would win their first game at the Prudential Center 4-1 over the Ottawa Centers.
