March 10, 2013, a date which was 600 days ago, and 18 Devils shootouts ago. On that date, the New Jersey Devils were at home against the Winnipeg Jets in a game that would be decided in a shootout. The Devils would go on to win that game 3-2, winning the shootout 1-0 with Patrick Elias scoring the only shootout goal between the two teams. Nobody who left that arena that night knew that they just saw the last New Jersey Devils shoot out win in exactly 600 days

With Slava Voynov's suspension and the recent shootings in Ottawa, St. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo reminds us why we all love hockey. Anthony Pucik, Matt Moro and Brendan Bowers also discuss how the Rangers and Rick Nash have started to get hot, while the Islanders and Devils need to get back on the winning track.
When the Rangers traded Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Rick Nash back in the summer of 2012, they anticipated receiving the left wing that averaged over 30 goals a season. In his first two seasons with the Blueshirts, however, Nash only scored 21 goals in the lockout shortened 2012-13 campaign and 26 last season where he only played 65 games due to a concussion. But this season, the Rangers might finally be getting the Nash they have been expecting.
