Devils go back in time on March 17, 2010

Both the Star-Ledger and the Bergen Record are reporting that the New Jersey Devils will wear their original colors — red, green and white — on March 17, 2010 against the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Rock to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day. The Devils switched to the red, black and white color scheme that they wear now after the 1992-93 season/playoffs. The Devils had been one of the few —  if not the only — NHL team that hasn’t had an alternate, third or throwback jersey over the last 10-15 seasons. I think it’s a good idea if it’s a once a season deal. St. Patty’s Day or in late December would be an appropriate use.
