Rangers: Henrik Lundqvist has won more regular-season games against the Devils than against any other team during his National Hockey League career. Lundqvist has defeated the Devils 25 times, one more than the 24 victories he has posted against the Islanders. He has also shut out the Devils six times, tied for most against any opponent with the six times he has blanked the Boston Bruins. In 41 career appearances against the Devils Lundqvist has posted an incredible 1.79 goals against average and .936 save percentage. The only team he has faced more often in his career is the Pittsburgh Penguins, against whom he has played in 44 games, including two already this season.
Devils: Defenseman Bryce Salvador, who played his 700th NHL game Sunday against the Islanders, was named the tenth captain in Devils history prior to the start of the 2013 season. He replaced Zach Parise, who left the Devils in July to sign a free agent contract with the Minnesota Wild. Of course the Devils have one of their former captains still on their current roster. Patrick Elias captained the squad during the 2006-07 season, but was replaced by Jamie Langenbrunner the following season. Elias currently wears an "A" for the Devils. The longest tenured captain in Devils history was Hall of Famer Scott Stevens, who served in the captain's role from 1992 through 2004.
