Game 45: Flying High As Jets Come To Town


Watch It: MSG Listen To It: 660 AM

The Last 10 Games: Winnipeg 5-5-0, New Jersey 6-3-1.

Season Series: This will final meeting between these two teams in the regular season. So far, NJ leads the season series 2-1. These two just met on Saturday night with the Devils winning 2-1 in Winnipeg.

What We Think of the Jets:  These are the types of teams I don’t like playing. Right now, the Jets need to make some noise because they are currently on the outside looking in. Why not start now? Especially against the Devils team that seems to be dealing with injuries.

What I Am Looking For Tonight: Keep rolling!! Besides that Calgary game which really was only the first period, the Devils had a good road trip. I thought the defense did a fantastic job on Saturday night in Winnipeg and hope to see a repeat performance tonight. In fact, they’ve been playing well the last few games. Can you believe that the Devils, who completed a 3-1 road trip, gave up only 3 goals in those 3 victories? With a nice long home stand coming up, the Devils could make some noise in the Eastern Conference standings, where they currently sit in 6th place, 4 points behind Ottawa.

The Devils are dealing with injuries so I have to look to the veteran guys to pick up the slack for the injured.

The Devils have recalled Jacob Josefson and Brad Mills from Albany because Adam Henrique will miss his second game in a row with a pulled groin and Travis Zajac is still having Achilles issues and can’t skate. Sykora, who missed practice on Monday is expected to play.

And Finally…. Really Isaiah? REALLY??? I thought the meaning was pretty self-explanatory, I mean, just look at the picture next to the title….
