The New Jersey Devils played their first NHL season in 1974, although in those days they weren't the Devils and they didn't play in New Jersey. They were known as the Kansas City Scouts, one of two teams (the other being the Washington Capitals) to join the league prior to the 1974-75 season. The Scouts struggled through two dismal seasons before packing up their bags and renaming themselves the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies existed for six seasons, in which they made the playoffs exactly once and earned the distinction of being the pro team that popularized the use of "Rock and Roll, Part 2" (A.K.A. “The Hey Song”) in sports arenas.
The history of the New Jersey Devils really begins in 1982 when the expansion team moved into Meadowlands Arena. Their traditional troubles continued for a few seasons, but the arrival of general manager Lou Lamoriello in 1987 began to turn things around for them. Lamoriello, who served as GM until 2015, led the Devils to three Stanley Cup championships, in 1995, 2000, and 2003, out of five appearances in the Finals. Today, the Devils play home games at "The Rock," Prudential Center in Newark.
