Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Flops against Flyers

Wedgewood made 27 saves in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers. New Jersey staked him to a 2-0 lead before six minutes were gone in the first period, but the game was all Philly after that and Wedgewood couldn't make it stick. The veteran netminder wraps up the season with a 3-8-3 record, a 3.11 GAA and a .900 save percentage in his first NHL action since 2017-18.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Taking on Bruins

Wedgewood's expected to start Monday's game against the Bruins, Mike Morreale of reports. This news is music to Boston's forwards' ears, as Wedgewood has surrendered at least four goals in each of his last three starts and sports a 3-6-3 record, 3.04 GAA and .899 save percentage overall.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Needed in relief

Wedgewood stopped seven of eight shots in relief of an ineffective Aaron Dell in Thursday's 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh. The roles reversed after Dell replaced Wedgewood in Tuesday's loss to the Penguins. Wedgewood allowed a shorthanded goal to Teddy Blueger after entering in the second period but didn't face much rubber in the third as the Penguins focused on defense after yielding six third-period goals Tuesday. Neither Wedgewood nor Dell can be trusted while MacKenzie Blackwood (upper body) sits out.

Scott Wedgewood gives up the weakest goal of all-time to Penguins (Video)

There’s weak, and then there’s the goal that the New Jersey Devils just gave up to the Pittsburgh Penguins. This season has been a non-stop nightmare for the New Jersey Devils. According to Money Puck, they have a 0% chance of making the Stanley Cup Playoffs. For the ninth time in the last 10 seasons, the Devils will not be making the playoffs. Tuesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins featured what might be the lowest point of the Devils’ terrible, horrible, no good, very bad 2020-21 season.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Falls to Pens in matinee

Wedgewood made 26 saves in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Penguins. Kyle Palmieri staked him to a 1-0 lead in the first period, but Wedgewood couldn't make it hold up, especially once the Sidney Crosby line got rolling for Pittsburgh.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Sparking effort in surprise start

Wedgewood made 40 saves Thursday in a 3-2 victory over the Penguins. He was a last-minute replacement for starter MacKenzie Blackwood, who was mysteriously scratched due to injury following warmups. Wedgewood was masterful in the blue paint. He was beaten on a tip on the power play in the second period, and then with just five seconds left when the Pens pulled their goalie for an extra attacker. Wedgewood will likely get more action if Blackwood is out for any period of time, so consider scooping him up for spot-starts. He's 2-0-2 in his last four starts.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Falls in OT to Caps

Wedgewood made 25 saves in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Capitals.

The 28-year-old is 2-3-2 on the season as MacKenzie Blackwood's main backup with a 2.71 GAA and .910 save percentage.

Bruins vs. Devils 3/8/21 RECAP: Scott Wedgewood is impossible to solve, Bruins lose 1-0

Not much happened here, friends. Just when we all thought this game was going to be headed to overtime, or perhaps even the shootout, the Bruins failed to get out of their own end, and a net-mouth scramble ended up getting Pavel Zacha the puck, who (apparently) bounced it off Kyle Palmieri to get what would inevitably be the GWG, 1-0 Devils.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Draws start Sunday

Wedgewood will guard the road goal in Sunday's game versus the Bruins, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports. Wedgewood hasn't played since Jan. 30, when he made his fifth straight start because MacKenzie Blackwood was in COVID-19 protocol. The 28-year-old Wedgewood posted a 1-3-1 record with a .901 save percentage in that stretch. He'll start Sunday because Blackwood started Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Shuts down Bruins

Wedgewood made a season-high 40 saves in a 1-0 shutout over Boston on Sunday. Making his first start since Jan. 30, Wedgewood became just the second goalie all year to blank the Bruins. It was the 28-year-old's fourth career shutout in just 30 NHL appearances, a rather historic rate according to Corey Masisak of The Athletic. Wedgewood was out of the NHL the last two seasons, but he's produced a stellar 2.33 GAA and .923 save percentage in six appearances for the Devils.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Starting Saturday

Wedgewood will guard the road goal during Saturday's matchup with Buffalo. Wedgewood has been a bit shaky of late, suffering back-to-back losses to the Flyers while posting a sub-par 3.64 GAA and .851 save percentage. The 28-year-old backstop will attempt to get back on track and secure his second win of the season in a road matchup with a Sabres squad that's averaging 2.75 goals per game this year, 19th in the NHL.

Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Cut down by Sabres

Wedgewood stopped 28 shots in regulation and overtime and two of three shootout attempts during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Sabres. The first goal of the game didn't come until midway through the second period, but both offenses opened up after that. Wedgewood still played fairly well down the stretch and made a couple big saves just to help earn the Devils a point. The 28-year-old is only 1-3-1 with a .901 save percentage since being forced to take over as the team's No. 1 netminder, but his spot seems safe until MacKenzie Blackwood (COVID-19 protocols) is able to return.
