Devils Daily: Eastern Conference Playoff Race; Habs Targeting Zegras

Published

on

New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils won’t hit the ice for skate this morning. They host the New York Rangers tonight at 7 PM and the media will speak with head coach Lindy Ruff at 5 PM.

It’s another in-division, four-point game against the Devils’ rival in New Jersey’s quest to regain playoff position.

Yesterday, the Devils recalled their breakout rookie goaltender from the AHL. It’s likely, however, that the start goes to Nico Daws, which would be his sixth in a row.

Elsewhere, Pittsburgh’s GM opens up about his plans for his team ahead of the March 8th trade deadline, Montreal is targeting a big-name center in Anaheim, and because the Devils dropped their game to Washington on Tuesday, it made Phill’ys path to the playoffs a bit easier.

Let’s do that hockey.
