1 Lundqvist All Too Familiar
Tonight, Henrik Lundqvist will make his 60th start against the New Jersey Devils in Newark. The netminder has had more success against the Devils than any other at his position in NHL history. Since the 1982-83 season, no goalie has had more wins than Hank’s 36 against New Jersey.
2 Dangerous Devils
As told by AV:
“Both times we played them, we played against a real good team. Tons of speed, very high skill level and a goaltender that is playing extremely well. They’ve been up as one of the top two teams in our division, which is probably considered the best in the NHL, and rightfully so. They’ve been playing some real good hockey”
