Complete coverage of tonight’s game starts tonight at 6:30 PM on MSG+ & MSG GO.
1 Slump Busting
The Devils are looking to break a winless streak against the Capitals at home tonight. The last time they beat the Caps at the Prudential Center was April 4, 2014, in a 2-1 win.
2 Old Friends in New Places
For the first time in his eight-year NHL career, Marcus Johansson will be playing against the Capitals. The 27-year-old totaled a career-high 58 points with Washington last season before being traded to New Jersey during the offseason.
3 Bratt Pack
4 Zach-It To Me
The Devils score with the man advantage to take the lead after great passing from Jesper Bratt and Marcus Johansson set up Pavel Zacha for the go-ahead goal.
Pavel Zacha tallied twice in New Jersey’s 6-3 win over Toronto on Wednesday, his first multi-game of his NHL career.
5 Shorthanded Success
The Devils have three shorthanded goals this season, including a historic 3-on-5 shorthanded goal scored by Brian Gibbons Wednesday night in Toronto. It was the first time in franchise history the Devils scored a 3-on-5 goal.
