Best Answer

In New Jersey, there is large portion of pine tree forests called the Pine Barrens. Local legend tells of the New Jersey Devil, a large devil-like monster (like the mothman) who is said to live in the pine barrens and has for centuries. The New Jersey Devil is a big legend in NJ, so it's only fitting the team would be called the New Jersey Devils.
