New Jersey Devils

The Devils are riding a six-game losing skid. Placed last in the Metropolitan Division, it is needless to say that this year has been a nightmare for New Jersey. In fact, the team is coming off their worst loss of the season. Prior to the All-Star break, the Devils got dismantled by the Toronto Maple Leafs, 7-1. To make things worse, the team will have to play sans Jack Hughes as they visit the Ottawa Senators. Hughes is New Jersey’s second leading scorer and that playing without him means the rest of the Devils need to step up. Numbers suggest that every aspect of their game play has to improve. But standing out is the team’s struggles in goaltending where New Jersey is second worst across the league. 

Players to watch: J. Bratt LW (G 14, A 27, PTS 41), J. Hughes C (G 12, A 15, PTS 27), A. Johnsson LW (G 11, A 14, PTS 25).

Ottawa Senators

The Senators are bracing for a tough stretch as they return from the All-Star break. Over a period of 16 days, Ottawa is set to play 10 games – a stretch that is caused by the several postponements due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Fortunately, 80 percent of the games will be played at the Canadian Center, making it less of a tough challenge for the team. Currently placed second to the last in the Atlantic Division with just 32 points in 40 games played, the Senators know that things must change dramatically in order for them to catch up. The extended playing stretch, hence, could make or break the team’s campaign. Should they collect a decent number of wins, it could place the team in a good position to make a comeback in the season. 

Players to watch: D. Batherson RW (G 13, A 21, PTS 34), B. Tkachuk LW (G 12, A 18, PTS 30), J. Norris C (G 18, A 8, PTS 26).
