There’s not much to say regarding the New Jersey Devils and making the playoffs, except that they need a miracle. That “miracle” will have to begin tonight when they face-off against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
NJD: 15-16-10 (40 points)
TOR: 23-13-5 (51 points)
March 4 @ TOR: TOR 4 NJD 2
April 6 @NJD; TOR 2 NJD 1
NJD: 11th in the Eastern Conference, 6 points out of a playoff spot with 7 games to play
TOR: 5th in the Eastern Conference, 7 points clear of 9th place with 7 games to play
NJD: 2.29 goals for per game; 2.58 goals against per game
TOR: 3.12 goals for per game; 2.63 goals against per game
NJD: 15.7 PP%; 81.1 PK%
TOR: 18.2 PP%; 87.6 PK%
It doesn’t look good for the Devils, but I know I’ll still be watching tonight at 7:00 PM on MSG Plus or listening on 970 AM.
