Devils down 1-0 against Columbus
New Jersey came out of the gates flat against Blue Jackets. In the first period NJ was outshot 14-4 and displayed little competence in their #4 ranked power play in the league. In his first game back, Patrik Elias has logged 5:12 of ice time and made an appearance on the second PP unit. The Devils start the second period with an extended power play and will look to capitalize on it.
