New Jersey Devils
It is their defense that has been faltering for the New Jersey Devils. During the said three-game losing skid, New Jersey struggled to fend off their assignments and allowed the opposition to score a total of 17 goals. The series of defeats dragged the Devils below the Senators in the Eastern Conference standings with the latter holding a fine line of an edge in points, 42-41.
Players to watch: Kyle Palmieri (GP 44, G 16, A 15, PTS 31), Nico Hischier (GP 43, G 12, A 17, PTS 29), Nikita Gusev (GP 45, G 8, A 20, PTS 28).
The Senators will try to pick up where they left off after they had bagged a dry spell breaking victory on Jan. 18 before heading into the All-Star break. Their last recorded victory prior to the 5-2 assault of the Calgary Flames was way back Dec. 23 last year. And as they face the Devils who are pegged as underdogs, the team could simply set up the ideal opportunity to string together a series of wins that they could rub off into their next campaign. What could be more enticing for potential trade targets than an exhibit of wins? It may be a little too late to grasp a playoff spot, but as the trade deadline approaches, the Senators could still drop the hammer as the team seeks a better personnel moving forward.
