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 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 in 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 in Denver. On May 27, 1982, the team was sold to the shipping tycoon – John McMullen, and the move to NJ was affected.
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.
With the Devils so very popular with their fans, the games are mostly sold out, and it is quite difficult to obtain New Jersey Devils tickets for the home and away games. Legitimate Devils tickets can be obtained from ticket brokers.

Finding the Best New Jersey Devils Seats
You have to decide on which seat you want based on experience and budget. There are thousands of great seats on the side, but only some will really take off. Sitting behind the benches is a great way to take in the game. If you are seeing these priced too high, then look across the rink in similar levels and sections. If you go behind the net you can catch some great action up close. If money isn’t that big deal then try for those inner bowl sections or club-level seats. By the time the game is over, you want to see the Devils win from a really good location.
