Now Commenting On:

Even though the Devils' 2013 season is over, we can still look back at some great moments in New Jersey's playoff history.

On April 30...

1988-  Kirk Muller scores 14 seconds into the game, and John MacLean's third-period redirection serves as the game-winning goal in New Jersey's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals in game 7 of the Patrick Division finals at the Cap Center.

New Jersey's win clinches the franchise's first trip to the Prince of Wales Finals against the Boston Bruins.

1998- Brian Rolston, Doug Gilmour and Lyle Odelein each pot goals, as New Jersey staves off elimination with a 3-1 win over the Ottawa Senators in game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals at Continental Airlines Arena.

2003- Scott Gomez records a goal and an assist, and Scott Stevens scores a goal just two days after being hit in the head with a slap shot, as the Devils pull within one game of the Eastern Conference finals with a 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
