Devils notch 1,000th win since N.J. arrival
Young fans from the Devils' early days.
Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Capitals marked a major milestone for Jersey's Team: it was the 1,000th win for the Devils since their 1982 relocation from Colorado.

The organization got its start in Kansas City, going 27-110-23 in two seasons (1974-75, '75-76) as the Scouts. The Scouts soon landed in Colorado, where they became the Rockies and went 113-281-86 in six campaigns from 1976 to 1982.

On May 27, 1982, Dr. John McMullen, John Whitehead and Brendan Byrne purchased the Rockies and received NHL approval to move the team to New Jersey's Meadowlands. The Rockies were officially renamed the "Devils" in fan balloting on June 30, 1982. 

The Devils tied Pittsburgh, 3-3, in their NHL/Meadowlands debut on Oct. 5, 1982, and notched their first-ever victory three days later with a 3-2 triumph over the visiting New York Rangers.

The Devils won just 17 games in each of their first two seasons in the Garden State. Since the arrival of Hall-of-Fame GM Lou Lamoriello in 1987, the Devils have captured 11 100-point seasons and three Stanley Cups. Here's a look at the Devils' benchmarks along the way:
