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
Lockout. Just the very word can send shivers down a sports fans’ spine. The agonizing thought that an individual cannot watch their beloved team on a regular basis because millionaires are squabbling with millionaires over miniscule details is almost unbearable.
