The Devils continue their road trip today in Winnipeg and take on the Jets.
Complete coverage begins at 2:30 PM on MSG+ & MSG GO.
After being sidelined with a pectoral injury, Travis Zajac made his return to the Devils’ lineup in Thursday’s OT loss to Toronto. New Jersey’s alternate captain played 16:11 and had two shots on goal against the Leafs.
Both teams will be sporting identical 11-4-3 records and a big reason for Winnipeg’s success this season has been Mark Scheifele. The forward is 10th in the NHL in goals scored (11) and tied for fifth in the NHL in total points (22).
Despite the setback in Toronto, the Devils remain one of the best teams in the NHL when playing away from the Prudential Center. New Jersey is sporting a 6-1-2 record this season on the road.
Connor Hellebuyck is expected to get the start for the Jets in this matinee in Winnipeg. The Michigan native is sporting some impressing numbers this season: a 10-1-2 record with a 2.29 goals against average and a .930 save percentage.
