The Series Preview

For a more thorough look at the matchup, see John’s series preview.


There appears to be no injuries for either team. Damon Severson took a maintenance day yesterday but he should be good to go tonight.


The Devils lineup is the same as the start of game 4:

Here’s an update on NY’s lines as well:

Best of 3

The Devils went down 2-0, losing twice on home ice, and they came back and won games 3 and 4 on the road. It’s now a best of 3 with the Devils having home ice advantage, not that it’s helped anybody much in this series. With two wins in a row to tie the series, the Devils have the momentum. If they get a win tonight they’ll be one more away from their first trip past round 1 since 2012.
