New Jersey has the hottest team in the NHL

Jersey Devils fans wanted their coach Lindy Ruff fired early in the season.

After a series of losses at the start of one of the team’s worst seasons last year, most people in the stands were demanding the manager’s head.

Now, after winning 12 games in a row, they’re singing “Sorry Lindy.”

The Devils haven’t made the playoffs since 2018 and not since they made the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals.

If they continue as they are now, they want to go deep into the playoffs and maybe go very far this year.

Their three hottest stars are all under 24 on a very young and hungry team.

Nico Hischier, Jack Hughes and Jesper Bratt light the lamp and lead the team in the standings.

If you’ve never been to a New Jersey Devils game or haven’t seen the last few disappointing seasons, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon.

Driving is also an option and not that difficult at any time of the year.

They have three home games this week, including one against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

The Devils are the only real New Jersey team we have and right now they are on fire and offer a great entertainment option for all ages.

Even if you’re not a hardcore hockey fan, this is the time of year to come to the Prudential Center and check out the Devils.

These are the best hiking areas in New Jersey

A trip to New Jersey doesn’t have to be all about the beach. Our state has some incredible hiking trails, waterfalls and lakes.

From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to New Jersey’s hidden gems, there are many options for a great hike. Hiking is a great way to spend time outside and enjoy nature, and it’s also a great workout.

Before you hit the trails and explore some of our listeners’ suggestions, I have some hiking etiquette tips from the American Hiking Society.

If you are going downhill and meet an uphill hiker, step aside and give the uphill hiker room. A hiker going uphill has the right-of-way unless stopping to catch his breath.

Always stay on the trail, you may see side trails unless they are marked as an official trail, stay away from them. If you leave the trail, you can harm the ecosystems surrounding the trail, the plants and wildlife that live there.

You also don’t want to disturb the wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and keep hiking.

Cyclists should give way to hikers and horses. Hikers should also give way to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you’ll encounter on New Jersey’s trails.

If you decide to take your dog with you on your hike, be sure to keep them on a leash and ensure all pet waste is removed.

Finally, keep the weather in mind, if the trail is too muddy it’s probably best to save your hike for another day.
