The '95 team is honored before a game in 2007 against the Sabres. Will the 2013 team be honored one day?

When comparing this season with the last lockout-shortened NHL season in 1995, the New Jersey Devils and their fans are hoping history repeats itself.

That was the year the franchise captured its first Stanley Cup championship, the first of three over a nine-year span.

Currently all is not in orbit in the Devils’ universe. They are losers of six straight games. After an 8-1-3 start, New Jersey has fallen to seventh in the conference, just two points ahead of the ninth-place Flyers. They are very fortunate to be part of several “three point games.” Five of their losses have come in overtime or the shootout.
