The New Jersey Devils are a professional ice hockey team based in East Rutherford, New Jersey. They are currently members of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The Devils have won the Stanley Cup three times, first in the lockout-shortened 1995 season. The club was founded in Kansas City, Missouri in 1974, moved to Denver, Colorado after only two seasons, then finally settled in New Jersey in 1982. Under current general manager Lou Lamoriello, the Devils have earned a playoff spot in each of the last nine seasons.

During the 2004-05 NHL lockout, most Devils players played in European leagues and in the hockey world championships. Patrik Elias, who was playing in the Russian Superleague, contracted hepatitis A by eating poorly cooked fish. Faced with Elias' indefinite recovery timetable, plus the loss of defensive stalwarts Scott Niedermayer to free agency and Scott Stevens to retirement, Lamoriello signed veteran defenseman Dan McGillis and two former Devils – winger Alexander Mogilny and defenseman Vladimir Malakhov.In July 2005 the team announced that head coach Pat Burns would not return for the 2005-06 season after being diagnosed with cancer for the second time in little more than a year.Assistant coach Larry Robinson, the Devils' head coach from 2000 to 2002, was promoted to start the season. Instead of naming a captain, Robinson chose four alternate captains: John Madden, Alexander Mogilny, Brian Rafalski, and Colin White.
The team struggled early in the season, ending 2005 with a 16-18-5 record. Robinson resigned as head coach on December 19, and Lamoriello moved down to the bench.Once Elias returned from his bout with hepatitis, he was given his position as alternate captain back, and the team quickly turned around, finishing 46-27-9 after a season-ending eleven-game winning streak capped with a dramatic 4-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens. During that final victory, which clinched the Devils' sixth division title, Brian Gionta set a new team record for goals in a season with 48, topping Pat Verbeek's 46.
On April 29, 2006, the Devils won their first round Stanley Cup playoff series against the New York Rangers four games to none, extending their winning streak to fifteen games and marking the first time the Devils defeated their cross-river rival in a playoff series. The team's season ended in the next round with an 4-1 game 5 loss to the New Jersey Devils, who would go on to win the Stanley Cup.
In the offseason, the Devils hired former Montreal Canadiens coach Claude Julien to replace Lamoriello behind the bench.
