I know I made this argument the last time these two teams played, but this game is so much more important to Jersey. The Devils probably should have won the last time out, and I think they’ll actually pull it off this time.
Record: 42-28

The Sens beat the Devils last week in Newark. But beating the hottest team in hockey twice in 10 days seems like a longshot.
Record: 35-35
Exact scores predicted: 2

Now that it looks like the clock has struck midnight on Craig Anderson, I’m going to pick a Devils team that is fighting for its playoff life.

Looks like reality may have settled in on our boys. They try hard but will come out on the losing most nights. I don’t think they will be able to repeat their upset of the Devils again. Let’s just all settle in for a nice snooze-fest.

It looks like some of the energy the big trades gave the Senators is starting to wear off and they are coming back to earth a little bit. The Devils absolutely have to win this game to stay alive and they should be able to beat a team well stocked with AHLers.
Record: 42-26
