This Date in Devils History: June 24
On June 24, 1995, captain Scott Stevens and John MacLean helped hoist the first Championship in Devils' franchise history.


newjerseydevils.com – After 13 seasons, the Devils captured their first Stanley Cup title by defeating the Detroit Red Wings in the Championship final. Paced by the goaltending of Martin Brodeur and the timely scoring of Claude Lemieux, the Devils upset the favored Red Wings in four straight games, outscoring, outshooting and outplaying Detroit in each encounter.

Both teams took similar routes to the Final. Detroit lost only two games in the opening three rounds, although they did need a trio of overtime victories to subdue Chicago in the Western Conference Final. New Jersey dropped four games in the opening three rounds, including a pair to the Philadelphia Flyers in a stirring six-game Eastern Conference Final.

Lemieux, who scored only six times in the regular season, erupted for 13 goals in the playoffs and also won the Conn Smythe Trophy. Neal Broten, a 14-year veteran acquired by New Jersey late in the season from Dallas, notched four game-winning goals for the champions. Devils coach Jacques Lemaire, who won eight Stanley Cup rings as a player, became just the fourth person to score a Stanley Cup-winning goal and coach a Stanley Cup-winning team.
