1 Going Back-to-Back

Both teams will be playing the second half of a back-to-back tonight. The Devils won 2-1 against the Panthers, while the Blackhawks came back and defeated the Hurricanes in overtime in Carolina. The Devils are 2-1-0 in the second game of a back-to-back this season.

2 Road Warriors

The Devils are 5-1-1 on the road this season. However, they are only 1-2-1 in Chicago dating back to the 2013-14 season.

3 The Kid's Alright

Devils rookie defenseman Will Butcher recorded an assist on Kyle Palmieri‘s power play goal Saturday. Butcher now has eight power play assists (tied for third in the NHL) and his 13 assists in the first 16 games of a season are the most for a Devils defenseman since Scott Stevens in 1991-92.
