The Devils finally broke their winless streak on Tuesday, but not before blowing yet another 2 goal lead. This is after we finally relearned how to score before the third period again, of course. The objective for tonight’s game? Get a lead early, and keep it this time.

A mystical concept for this Devils team apparently, but here’s hoping we can manage it.

The Devils did spend yesterday’s practice working on defending a 6 on 5 according to Amanda Stein, so hopefully that will help. Maybe.

The Boys To Do It:

For the Devils:

Kuokkanen - Hughes - Sharangovitch
Zacha - Hischier - Bratt
Foote - Maltsev - Boqvist
Wood - McLeod - Bastian

Murray - Severson
Butcher - Carrick
Smith-Tennyson

Blackwood

Johnsson did return to practice yesterday, but he left a little over ten minutes later, so I’m assuming he will not be ready to return to play tonight.

For the Flyers:

Giroux - Couturier - Voracek
Farabee - Hayes - Konecny
Van Riemsdyk - Laughton - Allison
Lindblom - Cates - Patrick

Provorov - Braun
Morin - Sanheim
Hägg - Myers
