Despite playing just four games, the New Jersey Devils road trip felt like a lifetime.
The good news is, they come home to Newark with four of a possible eight points. Not bad.
The bad news? They probably could have had more had they played a bit more of a structured game in some very winnable contests. Oh, and they return to New Jersey more banged up than when they left.
Plus, did the Sharks finally claim two points? Could Edmonton phone Boston for goaltending? And a lot more.
Let’s do that hockey.
