Kevin Devin, a defenseman for the New Jersey Devils on their 1995 Stanley Cup team, has taken over Trenton coaching duties in 2010. Watch T-Devils captain Trevor Kell, averaging more than one point game this season, and rookie forward prospect Matt Lombardi take the ice against the Alaska Aces, currently first place in the Western conference.

In late spring, Slippery as Sin gleefully spoofs the classic detective story by weaving in themes of political paranoia.
