The 5-1-0 Devils are back on the road tonight, as they head north to Ottawa to take on the Senators.
Complete coverage of tonight’s game starts tonight at 7 PM on MSG+ & MSG GO.
The Prudential Center is the current home for the Devils, but Ottawa has been a home away from home in the past. Lifetime, New Jersey is 21-12-2-4 at the Canadian Tire Centre and was where they won Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final on May 23, 2003, en route to their third Stanley Cup.
Will Butcher continues to torment opposing teams after extending his point-scoring streak to four games with an assist Tuesday night against Tampa. The rookie defenseman has nine points to-date and leads all rookies in points. Now that’s impressive!
You don’t want to take any penalties against the Devils. New Jersey leads the NHL with a 30.8% success rate through the first six games of the season.
Drew Stafford continued his early-season success with two goals against Tampa after scoring the game-tying goal against the Rangers last Saturday. After totaling eight goals combined (with Winnipeg and Boston) last season, the 32-year-old is looking like he has a new lease on life in New Jersey. Don’t you agree?
Did you know the Devils lead the NHL in players born and raised in the United States with 14? We wonder if they blast “The Boss” in the locker room…
