The New York Rangers looked like they had something to play for on Saturday afternoon.

The Devils did not.

New Jersey ended its disappointing campaign with a flat, uninspired effort in a 4-0 loss to New York at Madison Square Garden.

If there was one overarching theme from tonight's game, it was the notion, no the declarative statement, that the Devils didn't deserve to win tonight's game despite battling back to tie the game three times. Not with their performance on faceoffs, not after their failed power plays and most definitely not after the way way they killed penalties.

"We didn?t deserve to win. Wer didn?t play well enough to win," coach Pete DeBoer said after the game. " ... You get what you deserve in this game. We had some opportunities to win, but we didn?t play well enough to earn two points."

The Devils know they made too many mistakes to deserve two points Thursday.

Before tonight's match against the Dallas Stars the Devils honored one of the few players to have played on all three Devils Stanley Cup champion teams. Scott Niedermayer's number 27 joins Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko in the rafters of the Prudential Center. It was a very classy ceremony for a classy player. Out of all the players that played in the NHL, Scott Niedermayer is the only player to ever win all 6 major hockey championships. The guy is a winner and congratulations Scott Niedermayer.

The 1st period started off very physical for captain Zach Parise.??I personally put myself in a vulnerable position when Ott hit me. So, I take that responsibility. That was my fault,? Parise said. But the physical Stars still could not stop the top line of Parise-Henrique-Kovalchuk. Everyone on that line would contribute at least a goal.
