Game Notes

  • New Jersey was shutout for the fifth time this season.
  • The Devils fell to 1-4-3 against the Western Conference.
  • Tonight the Devils opened their fifth of 22 sets of back-to-back games. The team is playing at home on consecutive dates for the first time since a 4-2 win over Philadelphia, followed by a 3-1 loss to Montreal on April 1-2, 2011. New Jersey is 1-3-1 in first games and 0-1-3 in second games of back-to-backs this season.
  • This weekend marks the 33rd time in franchise history that the Devils have played home games on consecutive days. New Jersey is  now 19-13-1 in first games and 22-9-1 in second games all-time when playing a back-to-back set at home.
  • New Jersey allowed an empty-net power play goal with 3 seconds remaining in the contest. It was just the second PPG the Devils have allowed at Prudential Center this season (22/24, 91.7%). New Jersey’s penalty-killers are 21/23 (91.3%) over the past five games.
  • Cory Schneider (19 saves) fell to 1-5-3 on the season. He’s been the starting goaltender in four of the five games in which the Devils have been shut out.
  • Adam Henrique and Jaromir Jagr led New Jersey with four shots on goal.
  • Anton Volchenkov (lower body) did not play. Mark Fayne made his first appearance since November 3 at Minnesota.
