Date with a Devil

Obviously the New Jersey Devils are no longer the team they used to be. Offense is hard to come by and their defence is a shadow of their Scott Stevens glory years. Worse, Brodeur actually has bad games now and then.
Still they have enough good players to make us pay if anyone just tries to mail it in. Only strong play by Emery made the last victory as easy as it appeared. He needs to get back his form tonight.
Even with Havlat and Fisher out, we certainly have more than enough offense to get the job done. The critical mass, or tipping point for this game will be our defence, who as a corps, have to come out with a strong game after their sub-par performance in Philly.
I sense Kelly and Vermette are on the verge of big things: expect them to light it up.
