From the moment Dr. John McMullen brought professional hockey to New Jersey to the moment Scott Stevens lifted the Stanley Cup over his head for the third time, the Garden State has been in love with its New Jersey Devils. In Tales from the New Jersey Devils Locker Room, former New Jersey goalie Chico Resch and coauthor Mike Kerwick bring readers along for a wild ride from the lean early seasons to the three Stanley Cup championships and beyond. The book has it all, including details about John MacLean’s game winner against Chicago, the goal that propelled the Devils into the playoffs for the first time in 1988, Ken Daneyko’s emotional curtain call in Game 7 of the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals, Martin Brodeur’s yearly playoff dominance, and today’s Eastern Conference contenders. Tales From the New Jersey Devils Locker Room is an easy skate through Devils history, revealing insights behind the stories fans have heard and many others they have not heard until now.
