A win for the Devils tonight would have them reach .500 for the first time this season and would vault them over the Thrashers into 11th place.

Games of importance tonight:

Ottawa Senators @ New Jersey Devils 7pm

Toronto Maple Leafs @ New York Islanders 7pm

Buffalo Sabres @ Pittsburgh Penguins 7pm

The Devils need both of the teams in bold to lose. Tonight the Devils face a struggling Ottawa Senators team that has started to show a little life recently no doubt due to the goaltending of Craig Anderson. Surely Martin Brodeur will be in goal tonight.

The game is on MSG tonight as well.
