The New Jersey Devils are one of eight teams in the Metropolitan Division of the NHL’s Eastern Conference along with the Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals. The franchise was founded as the Kansas City Scouts in 1974. The Scouts moved to Denver in 1976 and became the Colorado Rockies. In 1982, they moved to East Rutherford, New Jersey, and took their current name. For their first 25 seasons in New Jersey, the Devils were based at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford and played their home games at Brendan Byrne Arena, which was later renamed to Continental Airlines Arena. Before the 2007–08 season, the Devils moved to Prudential Center in Newark.
The Devils have reached the Stanley Cup Finals five times, winning in 1994–95, 1999–2000 and 2002–03, and losing in 2000–01 and 2011–12. The Devils were known for their defense-first approach throughout their years of Cup contention, but have since moved toward a more offensive style. The Devils won their first of three Stanley Cups with a sweep of the heavily favored Detroit Red Wings. Claude Lemieux was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the playoffs.
The Devils' second championship run included a come-from-behind victory in the Conference Finals. They trailed the Flyers three games to one, but rebounded to win three straight games and the series, becoming the first team ever to come back from a 3–1 series deficit to win an NHL Conference Final. In the Stanley Cup Finals, the Devils defeated the defending champion Dallas Stars in six games. Scott Stevens was named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy.
The 2002-03 Devils finished first in the Atlantic Division with 108 points, and their playoff run included a seven-game Conference Final series victory over the Ottawa Senators. In the Stanley Cup Finals, the Devils and Mighty Ducks of Anaheim had a back-and-forth battle, as both teams won all of their home games. The Devils brought the Stanley Cup to New Jersey for a third time, defeating the Mighty Ducks in the seventh game of the Finals in New Jersey.
The New Jersey Devils’ all-time leader in goals is Patrik Elias with 408, and Elias is also the franchise leader in points with 1,025. The Devils’ franchise record for most goals in a season is held by Brian Gionta, who scored 48 goals in 2005-06. Elias set the franchise record for most points in a season when he tallied 96 in 2000-01.
