New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils face Damon Severson and the Columbus Blue Jackets for the final time in the 2023-24 season tonight. Last time at the Prudential Center, the Devils welcomed Damon Severson back to his old stomping grounds for the first time since becoming a member of Columbus.

The Devils earned a 4-3 victory and own a 2-1 series lead over the Jackets this season. New Jersey is looking to take the season series and get back in the win column tonight.

Let’s dive into this afternoon’s Devils’ tilt with the Blue Jackets.

Last Game

New Jersey dropped an attainable two points to the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday. Juraj Slafkovsky and Joshua Roy put the Habs ahead 2-0 through the first 40 minutes of play. However, the Devils clawed their way back scoring two power-play goals by Luke Hughes and Alexander Holtz as a result of a double minor assessed to Nick Suzuki. Unable to clear the Devils’ crease — a theme for all three goals vs. the Canadiens — Cole Caufield batted in a loose puck past Nico Daws to score the game-winning goal with 4.5 minutes remaining in the game.

Daws turned in another quality start making 22 saves on 25 shots in the 3-2 loss.

Player To Watch

Alexander Holtz owns two goals over his last three games played and earned his first power-play goal for 2023-24 on Wed., Jan. 17, vs Montreal. He’s now scored 11 goals this season and after some dispute following the conclusion of Wednesday night’s tilt, he’s looking toward a stronger 5-on-5 performance to earn more ice time.

Devils vs. Blue Jackets

According to the Devils’ PR, “The Devils and Columbus meet for the fourth time in 2023-24, which concludes the Metropolitan Divisional foes regular-season series.

The Devils suffered a 2-1 loss on Nov. 24, at the Rock, but then earned wins against the Jackets on Dec. 16 (6-3, W) and Dec. 27 (4-3,W).

A win, or overtime defeat, on Friday would mark the third time since 2013-14 that the Devils won a regular-season series against Columbus (2022-23 & 2014-15).
