Devils vs. Flyers: New Jersey fans don head-bags as winless streak stretches on

Jim McIsaac

Devils fans are finally reaching their breaking point.

With their winless streak now stretching to 10 games and their playoff hopes extinguished just a year after making the Stanley Cup Finals, the New Jersey Devils are enduring some tough times. With a lingering injury to Ilya Kovalchuk derailing their entire offense, it's not a fun time to play for the Devils ... or to be one of their fans:

Unable to endure the shame and misery any longer, New Jersey fans watching the Devils play in Philadelphia took to wearing bags over their heads, Unknown Comic-style. They looked on in paper-faced solemnity as the Devils warmed up, bleak brown reminders of how far the Devils have fallen this year.

New Jersey leads the game by a score of 1-0 midway through the contest. It remains to be seen if an ultimately-meaningless victory is enough to banish the bags.
