The New Jersey Devils have been a part of the NHL since 1974 when they were known as
the Kansas City Scouts. They were moved to Colorado in 1976 as the Rockies, and eventually
moved to New Jersey in 1982. That is where they have been since. Fans have taken to the
New Jersey team, with New Jersey Devils tickets being sold out for most home games that
the team has. Throughout its long and complicated history, the team has had a relatively
successful time on the ice. The New Jersey Devils tickets holders have seen their team win
nine division titles, five conference titles, and three Stanley Cups. All of these successes have
come in the past 20 years.
The greatest period in New Jersey Devils history came from 1994 to 20003, when the team
won three Stanley Cups, four Conference titles, and five division titles. The likes of Ken
Daneyko, Scott Stevens, and Scott Niedermayer were seen by New Jersey Devils tickets
holders at this time and the team played some of the best hockey in the league.
The past five seasons have been up and down for the New Jersey Devils tickets holders and
fans. The team has made the playoffs in four out of the past five years and lost in the Stanley
Cup finals to the Los Angeles Kings in 2011-2012. 2010-11 was a poor year when the team
endured a losing season and did not make the playoffs. Fans will be hoping 2012-2013 brings
another Stanley Cup to New Jersey.
In 2007 the New Jersey Devils moved to their new home, the Prudential Center. This is
where they have played their home games since. The center can hold 17,625 people for
hockey games and most times New Jersey Devils tickets are sold out. During the playoffs
fans struggle to get tickets, such is the high demand. The arena itself also hosts basketball,
indoor soccer, lacrosse games, and concerts.
The New Jersey Devils tickets holders are some of the best fans in the league. They are
affectionately known as the Devils Army. While the team has a relatively small following,
they are all extremely loyal. Most fans do their best to attend as many games as possible,
hence the sell outs for most home matches. New Jersey Devils tickets holders are known for
their extremely entertaining celebrations post match at either the Championship Plaza of
the Prudential Center. The volume definitely goes up a few notches during the playoffs, or
when the team is playing someone from the New York area.
Fans have often urged the team to play more expansive hockey, with coach Jacque Lemaire's
tenure resulting in a team that was extremely conservative and tight defensively. While
this hockey resulted in plenty of success, fans have been craving for more goals and more
entertainment. To the team's credit, they definitely improved their offense at the tail end
of the 2011-2012 season. New Jersey Devils tickets holders will be hoping they can pick up
where they left off in 2012-2013 and win another coveted Stanley Cup title.
