The New Jersey Devils provided a special night for the Garden State’s top hockey players.  The first JSZ All-Zone Hockey banquet was hosted at the Prudential Center prior to the Devils 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Following the presentation of our video highlights and Player of the Year profiles, the players, coaches and families watched the Devils game and our All-Zone team was honored during the second intermission on the world’s largest in-arena scoreboard.  JSZ’s Jay Cook and Courtney DuPont recap a fantastic night at the Rock:
