In case you missed it, Chico Resch stopped by the official Devil site the other day and chatted with fans about the team's great play that has them on top of the East. Through exactly half the season, the Devils own a 30-10-1 mark for 61 points- three better than the Sabres and five ahead of the Capitals. Only the West's Blackhawks and Sharks have more points with each at 63 pacing the league.
New Jersey has gotten outstanding play from Zach Parise, Patrik Elias, Nicklas Bergfors, Andy Greene and new shutout record holder Martin Brodeur, who recorded No.106 the other night. Travis Zajac and Team USA selection Jamie Langenbrunner have been a big part of it as has rejuvenated Brian Rolston, who's playing much better under familiar coach Jacques Lemaire. In typical fashion for a team that has been injury plagued with top D Paul Martin still out and David Clarkson reinjured, the Devs have gotten contributions from everyone, including unsung heroes Rob Niedermayer, Dean McAmmond, Jay Pandolfo, Colin White and Bryce Salvador, who's been instrumental in leading a stingy defense.
Read what Chico has to say on the Devils, his career and of course his favorite foods. Our thanks to Michael Hayes.
