Game 38: Looking To Stay Hot in Ottawa

Watch It: MSG+  Listen To It: 660 AM

The Last 10 Games: New Jersey 7-3-0; Ottawa 6-3-1.

Season Series: New Jersey leads the season series 1-0 (4 game total) after Adam Henrique scored the game winner in a shootout in NJ on Dec 8th.

Know Your Enemy:

 What We Think of the Senators:  I have to think the Ottawa and NJ are two teams that are very evenly matched and these two teams will probably battle until the end of the season. As always, Alfredsson  always makes me nervous when he laces them up against us.

What I Am Looking For Tonight:  Keep it rolling. The Devils ended 2011 with two very good wins and a full effort in those wins. Don’t change too much, keep playing disciplined hockey and keep firing the puck.   

Final Thoughts: We are approaching the halfway point of the season and the Devils have put themselves in a good position so far. I never expected to win the division and I did expect some sloppy play and headaches this season but I also expected them to battle it out for the 8th spot. Right now NJ sits in the 6th spot and are only 3 points behind Pittsburgh. If the Devils can do what they did last year in January, February and March, the spring might be a good one for us!!
