New Jersey Devils
It seems that the New Jersey Devils have already raised the white flag. With just one loss away from reaching a double-digit losing skid, it’s obvious that New Jersey has already lost their drive to compete. The Devils are once predicted as heavy underdogs as they head over to their next stop: Philly. A lot of contributing factors certainly affected the team’s hapless showing on the ice. As they say, physical exhaustion doubles up on players during a losing streak. The ill-fated run has influenced their mindset every game as well, looking as if they had already been defeated even before the puck drops. Their game against the Flyers will be their second in as many nights; thus, the odds are really not on their side. These indications in place might be enough for spectators to expect a 10th straight defeat for the Devils.
Players to watch: J. Bratt LW (G 5 A 20 PTS 25), P. Zacha C (G 10 A 15 PTS 25), J. Hughes C (G 11 A 14 PTS 25).
The Flyers entered Friday’s game at the Madison Square Garden ecstatic with the chance to take down a division rival on the road. They, however, were denied as the Rangers got their revenge by virtue of a 4-1 win. The setback hindered Philly’s aim to cut the deficit in the standings. Instead, they were kept at 49 points – still 11 short of Boston’s record – with just nine games left to play in their schedule. Despite this, the team is not keen to concede just yet, not with an apparent advantage in their next four games. Playing against a discombobulated Devils squad starting Sunday is the most ideal set up for the Flyers to stage a late run and keep their chances alive in the season. They also have the benefit of fresher legs with the Devils about to play their second straight game for the second straight night on the road.
Players to watch: J. van Riemsdyk LW (G 16 A 21 PTS 37), J. Voracek RW (G 9 A 26 PTS 35), C. Giroux C (G 11 A 22 PTS 33).
