Lindy Ruff vs Luke Richardson
The New Jersey Devils have had an impressive start to the season, winning six out of their first ten games and amassing an average of 3.9 goals per game on an average of 33.3 shots taken per game – yet their defensive performance has fallen short, allowing 3.6 goals per game on an average of 30.5 shots taken.
New Jersey Devils Are Off to an Outstanding Start
Jack Hughes has been New Jersey’s offensive leader so far this season, amassing 20 points and 15 assists across 10 games played. Jesper Bratt also stands out as a scoring threat with seven goals scored so far in just 10 matches played. Goaltender Vitek Vanecek has excelled, posting an outstanding save percentage of.893 across seven contests to lead them to five victories for their side.
New Jersey remains a formidable team despite their recent loss against St. Louis Blues; their offensive capabilities should not be discounted. It should also be noted that Jack Hughes was injured during their last game, potentially limiting their performance moving forward.
Chicago Blackhawks in Search of Redemption
On the other side of the ice, the Chicago Blackhawks are seeking redemption after an arduous start to the season. At 4-6-0 they currently sit, suffering an eight-goal defeat against Arizona Coyotes recently; however, they did manage to beat Florida Panthers with a score of 5-2 victory in their latest match-up.
Chicago has struggled on offense, scoring only an average of 2.11 goals per game – making them one of the worst teams in the NHL in this regard. Connor Bedard leads their scoring attack with four goals while Corey Perry leads in assists with four.
Defense has also proven a challenge for the Blackhawks this season, yielding an average of 3.56 goals per game on 34.2 shots against. Arvid Soderblom has posted a 1-3-0 record this year with a 4.19 goals-against average and an.868 save percentage.

Given their current form, it’s evident that the New Jersey Devils hold the upper hand in this matchup. Their scoring prowess has been impressive even with one game off for an injury suspension in between. In contrast, the Chicago Blackhawks have been struggling both offensively and defensively.
New Jersey is the favorite in this contest due to their depth and talent as well as their performance so far this season. They excel on both sides of the puck, using offensive firepower to secure a road win in Chicago.
At their previous match against the St Louis Blues, the Devils trailed 2-1 before conceding two empty-net goals to fall to a 4-1 defeat.
