It almost seems like yesterday that the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Rangers to win the 2014 Stanley Cup. However, it’s been more than four months since Jonathan Quick and company hoisted the Cup, and a new season is upon us. Some teams began their 2014-2015 campaigns last night, but the New Jersey Devils are set to begin their season tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers. Here’s what you need to know about Jersey’s team heading into the season.

Devils' Shootout Woes

A lot has happened in the National Hockey League since March 10, 2013.

The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup, and so have the Los Angeles Kings. The New York Rangers made the Stanley Cup Finals after trading away their captain in 2014. TJ Oshie of the St. Louis Blues went from a little known right winger to a national superstar. The success of the Winter Classic led to the Stadium Series and more outdoor hockey and Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player in league history to score 700 goals.

One thing that hasn’t happened since March 10, 2013? The New Jersey Devils have not won in the shootout in a regular season game.
