The New Jersey Devils announced in January that they will be hosting a 20th Anniversary Celebration of the ’95 Cup event. The event will take place on the weekend of March 6-8, 2015.

Starting on February 17, they will feature unique content on their new website to lead up to the -95 Cup Celebration weekend.

One of the main events of the weekend is the ’95 Stanley Cup alumni game, which will be held on Saturday, March 7 at 3 p.m. The game will lead up to the Devils’ rivalry game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, March 8 at 5 p.m.

Leading up to the event weekend, the Devils organization will have a variety of multimedia content involving the ’95 Championship team. Fans can find all of the content on the new website dedicated to the event, www.NewJerseyDevils.com/95Cup

The site will be home to all-things Devils circa 1995. It will also include highlight footage from the Red-White Alumni game at Prudential Center’s AmeriHealth Pavilion. Some notable players in the alumni game are Martin Brodeur, Scott Stevens and Claude Lemieux; in addition to nearly 20 more players from the 1995 team. Funds raised from this event will go towards the New Jersey Devils Alumni Association.

Content from the game against the Philadelphia Flyers on March 8, during which the 1995 team will be honored, will also be on the site.

Where Are They Now?

Some of the content will include interviews with members of the 1994‐95 team, starting with Tom Chorske and Randy McKay. In their interviews they talk about how the Stanley Cup win affected their lives at the time and how it continues to influence them today.

Even though she’s from New Jersey, the Devils will always come second to her Boston Bruins. Living in a family full of Devils fans and college full of Penguins fans, her Bruins memorabilia is often chirped– but she accepts that’s what you get when you cheer for an out-of-state team. She loves following the game no matter who’s playing, though. Twitter: @DaniSanGiacomo
