Hit the Ice for NJ Devils Game with Milltown Recreation Department


MILLTOWN, NJ - For ice hockey fans, the rivalry between the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers is one that runs deep. It dates back to when the Devils moved into what used to be mostly Ranger territory in the Garden State.

In 1982, the former Colorado Rockies moved east to become the New Jersey Devils, relocating into the Brendan Byrne Arena, which came to be known as the Continental Airlines Arena. For their first 25 seasons, the Devils called the Meadowlands home, winning three Stanley Cups. However, early on before building their fan base, whenever the Rangers came to town, there was more Ranger blue than Devil red in the stands.

The Devils won the NHL's most coveted prize in 1995, 2000 and 2003 while the Rangers hoisted the cup in 1928, 1933, 1940 and 1994. Both teams have come head to head in the playoffs on a number of occasions. Regular season games are an example of what hockey rivalries are made of.
