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.
