New Jersey Devils Historical Stats

Carlos FigueiredoContributor IAugust 28, 2010

With the new NHL season quickly approaching, I figured it was time to look at the New Jersey Devils historical stats against every team in the league.

Sometimes, no matter how much better one team appears to be than another on paper, history will tell you that it will be a tough game, regardless.

The following stats are up-to-date through the end of last season, and each link will include not only various historical record against the Devils, but also last season's stats for each team, and off-season news and notes.

The stats were originally posted on SpeakingoftheDevils.com, and each link will open in a new window.   

Anaheim

Atlanta

Boston

Buffalo

Calgary

Carolina

Chicago

Colorado

Columbus

Dallas

Detroit

Edmonton

Florida

Los Angeles

Minnesota

Montreal

Nashville

Ottawa

Phoenix

San Jose

St Louis

Tampa Bay

Toronto

Vancouver

Washington

NY Islanders

NY Rangers

Philadelphia

Pittsburgh

Devils (a list of other random, fun stats involving the Devils)

As you can see, the Devils have fared pretty well against almost every team in the league, overall.

However, a closer look will reveal that the home/road splits are pretty drastic in some cases.

While the players on the Devils roster (or players that they are trying to get on their roster) ultimately decide the outcome, sometimes history makes things a little more difficult.

Note: I'll be using these historical stats throughout this season to see if they hold any weight, or if most of them are purely coincidence. I'll compare how the Devils have done historically, figure out how they should do, and compare that to the actual result for each game.
