New Jersey Devils Tickets
The Devils, a professional ice hockey team that plays in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL), is based at the Continental Airlines Arena at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, NJ. The team was previously known as the Kansas City Scouts – from 1974 to 1976, and the Colorado Rockies from 1976 to 1982.
The Kansas City Scouts joined the NHL in 1974, played their first game on October 9, 1974 and lost 6-2 to the Maple Leafs in Toronto. They lost their first home game at the Kansas City’s new Kemper Arena, 4-3 to the Chicago Black Hawks, though the following night, they beat the Washington Capitals, 5-4. They never did well, won only 27 of the 160 games they played, and were in debt to the tune of $1 million. They moved to Denver in 1976, and were renamed, the Colorado Rockies.
Making a fresh start, the Rockies won their first game 4-2, beating Toronto. They could not do much, and finished the 1976-77 season with a 20-46-14 record. Jack Vickers, the owner of the team sold it to Arthur Imperatore, prior to the 1978-79 season. Imperatore decided to move the team to the Meadowlands at New Jersey. NHL asked the team to wait until the Brendan Byrne Arena – later renamed the Continental Airlines Arena - was completed. The Rockies played the next two seasons, based at Denver. On May 27, 1982, the team was sold to the shipping tycoon – John McMullen, and the move to NJ was effected.
The team was renamed The New York Devils based on the legend of the mythological Jersey Devil, a creature supposed to inhabit southern NJ. Up to 1994, the Devils were an average team, when they started to gain respectability in the NHL. They did well in the regular season, losing out to the eventual Stanley Cup Champions - the NY Rangers – in the Eastern Conference Final. In 1995, the Devils won their first Stanley Cup, beating the Detroit Red Wings in four games. They won two more Stanley Cups – in 2000 and 2003.
The Devils won a total of four Conference Championships, and six Division Championships – the latest in 2005-06. On December 1, 2006, the Devils played their 2,500th regular season game - 160 as Kansas City Scouts, 480 as Colorado Rockies, and 1,860 in NJ. The Tickets
