Now that we have gone through all the individual injuries, let's look at one team as a whole: the New Jersey Devils. Below are the injuries listed alphabetically by last name, and hopefully it will explain why they all share one slide.
Goalie Martin Brodeur suffered torn bicep tendons keeping him out of the lineup for roughly three or four months.
Jamie Langenbrunner went head-first into the boards landing him with an upper-body injury including stiffness, but aside from that there was very little reports on what exactly was hurting the Devils' captain.
Zach Parise is still out, and has not played since Halloween, right now fighting to heal from a torn right meniscus, projecting him to be out approximately three months.
Brian Rolston has only appeared in 21 games this season after being sidelined with a sports hernia surgery.
Matt Taormina has also been off the roster since November 14th with a sprained left ankle, limiting the number of games he's played in to just 17 games.
Anton Volchenkov is New Jersey's defender who has only played in 26 games this year after suffering from a broken noes.
On top of all these key injuries, the Devils have been plagued with smaller injuries and illnesses as well, and this curse goes far enough to explain why NJ is ranked last not only in the East but also in the entire League.
