1 Another Hall Homecoming

Taylor Hall had a fruitful return to Edmonton, as the 25-year-old scored against his former team in New Jersey’s 6-3 loss Friday night.

Although Hall spent the first six of years with the Oilers, the skilled forward is actually a Calgary native. Hall scored the game-winning goal against the Flames back on Jan. 13, 2017 in a 2-1 Devils win.

2 Johnny Hockey

Going up against the Flames means going up against “Johnny Hockey”. A Carneys Point Township, New Jersey native, Johnny Gaudreau has been one of the most dynamic players in the NHL ever since he made his debut in 2014.

Gaudreau leads the Flames with 13 assists and has 16 points in 13 games.

3 Calling on Keith

Keith Kinkaid is expected to get the call in goal tonight in place of Cory Schneider. The 28-year-old has filled in admirably when called upon this season, sporting a 3-1-0 record with a .910 save percentage and a 2.62 goals against average.

4 Losing "MoJo"

Some bad news for the Devils, as the team revealed that Marcus Johansson will be out with a concussion after suffering an injury in Wednesday’s win over the Canucks. In 10 games for the Devils, the forward has posted 5 points (3 goals, 2 assists)

5 Season of "Gibbing"

On a team that’s loaded with offensive talent, it’s Brian Gibbons who leads the Devils in goals scored this season. The 29-year-old has tallied six times in 12 games, already surpassing his previous career-high of five during the 2013-14 campaign with the Penguins.
