Hello all, hope everyone enjoyed All-Star weekend! Congrats to Patrik Elias, New Jersey’s lone All-Star; he represented the franchise well over the weekend and tallied a goal and an assist in the actual game.
Some of you may know. but most probably do not that I am now on the IR with an upper-body injury (fractured left elbow), so I have not been able to attend a Devils game in a while unfortunately.
I will try to provide some analysis and evaluation after each Devils game and clue you in on the way I am seeing things as each game unfolds. It will be interesting to see if they continue to fight out of the NHL’s basement or if they remain there and lock up their first ever no. 1 pick in this June’s draft.
Tonight’s opponent is Ottawa, another team in the East that has also had a disappointing season, although the Senators’ roster on paper is not nearly impressive on paper as is New Jersey’s.
Prediction: Devils 3 Senators 1 …
