Since their inception in 1982, the New Jersey Devils have become as iconic as the urban legend for which they were named. They may have had a slow start after the move from Colorado, but their memorable second game win over the Rangers started one of the classic rivalries in the NHL. After a rough first season (the worst in the NHL that year), there have only been three years since 1987 that the Newark-based hockey team has failed to qualify for the playoffs. They're one of the most successful teams in hockey, winning a record-breaking 48 games in 2006 under Martin Brodeur. As a result, New Jersey Devils playoff tickets have been a hot commodity for decades. Their home ice at the Prudential Center hosts over 17,000 hockey fans nightly every season. The three-time Stanley Cup winners are accustomed to close games, huge goals, and sold out crowds, but it's not impossible to get cheap New Jersey Devils tickets, even in the years they hit the playoffs. You may have to search early, but you can go here to find great seats all season long.
For the fans, what makes Devils hockey great to watch are the larger-than-life players. When Jason Arnott slammed a double overtime goal in 2000 to secure the Stanley Cup, the crowd exploded like never before. More recently, Ilya Kovalchuk has been burning up the ice with both the most shootout goals in one season and the most game-deciding goals in one season -- seven in 2011. That year the team as a whole also held the record for best penalty kill percentage. The great season came only four years after a massive renovation of the Prudential Center Arena, which grew to include two club lounges, a goal bar, terrace area and a 350 seat gourmet restaurant, not to mention a big screen TV facing Newark Penn Station that measures just under five thousand square feet! Between the plush accommodations and winning records, New Jersey Devils hockey tickets have been selling faster than ever. Whether you're looking for cheap regular season tickets or the coveted New Jersey Devils playoff tickets, you'll want to act fast.
