NEARLY PERFECT AT PRU

The Devils return home where they own an NHL-best, 8-0-2 mark on home ice. The Devils are the NHL’s only club not to have lost a single game in regulation on home ice, marking the longest such run in franchise history.

FABBRI ROLLING

Blues forward Robby Fabbri continued his recent rock-solid play, scoring his sixth goal of the season and adding an assist against the Islanders last night in Brooklyn. Fabbri enters tonight’s game with five points (two goals, three assists) in his past five games.

HENRIQUE GETTING GOING

Adam Henrique scored the Devils’ first goal and assisted on Taylor Hall’s power-play tally Thursday in a 5-2 loss to Montreal. ­Henrique now has three points (two goals, one assist) in his past three games and has six goals and seven assists for 13 points this season.
