The timing was perfect, and the honor wisely bestowed on one county's seat.
As part of its ongoing "My Town" series, the New Jersey Devils honored Morristown with a video presentation during its game against the Minnesota Wild recently.
The honor comes just days after Morristown High School's ice hockey team won its first ever state championship at the Prudential Center – or as Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty says in the video, "on Devils' ice."
Morristown was honored in game with an honorary captain and had its colors displayed by the color guard.
"We're a proud hockey town, and we're also proud to be associated with the Devils," Dougherty says, noting the mass transit that runs through Morristown often brings red and white clad fans to Newark on game nights.
Other towns honored by the team in March included Woodbridge, Fairlawn, and Montclair.
Not only was Morristown honored on March 20, but the Devils threw in an extra treat, beating the Wild in overtime by a score of 4-3.
