The 2000–01 New Jersey Devils season was the team's 19th season in the National Hockey League since the franchise relocated to New Jersey. Although the Devils won the Atlantic Division and were Eastern Conference champions for the third time, the team fell short of winning back-to-back Stanley Cup championships, losing to the Colorado Avalanche in the Stanley Cup Finals series, four games to three.

Regular seasonEdit

The Devils had a scoring finesse unseen since the 1993-94 squad. Their 295 goals for propelled them to the best offensive team in the NHL, and the #1 spot in the Eastern Conference. They had two-forty goal scorers in Patrik Elias and Alexander Mogilny, while Petr Sykora finished with an impressive 35 goals. On October 28 at Pittsburgh, the Devils won in a 9-0 rout that saw John Madden and Randy McKay each score 4 goals. Martin Brodeur, as in previous seasons, was on top of his game, finishing with 42 wins, a 2.32 GAA and 9 shutouts. From February 26 to March 23, a span of 13 games, the Devils were a perfect 13-0-0-0.
