Devils show Philly Hell

Share & Comment


The New Jersey Devils are rising from the depths, extending their winning streak to three games with Saturday’s 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Winners of five of their last six, the Devils have ratcheted up their play of late. Skating with a purpose, the Devils bested the NHL’s best team, the Philadelphia Flyers led by Patrick Elias’ two goals, his ninth and tenth of the season. Goalie Johan Hedberg spelled Martin Brodeur stymieing 26 Flyers shots including a diving save with 2:40 remaining in the game preventing a game-tying goal.

An all around superb effort against the defending Eastern Conference Champion Flyers has the Devils believing again. Seeking their 15th consecutive playoff appearance, the Devils have been a model of consistency in the NHL for well over a decade. After a disastrous start, New Jersey seems to have found their stride, not giving up on their playoff hopes. On Sunday, the Devils travel up the turnpike and back home to Newark to face the Florida Panthers. With two games remaining before the NHL all-star break the Devils are aiming to close out the first half of the season on a high note.

In the 2010 postseason, the eighth seeded Canadians and the seventh seeded Flyers matched up in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Devils understand they need only qualify for the playoffs to have a shot for Lord Stanley’s cup.

Prediction:

Devils 3 Panthers 2

Illya Kovalchuk 2 goals and 1 assist spurring New Jersey to their fourth straight victory.

  2. Ever since Jamie left, it seams that they have it all together. They are working better, possibly due to there being no tension between Jamie and Lamaire (sp?)/team

  3. Devils look to continue their hot streak against the second best team in the West the Detroit Red Wings tonight. Detroit will be playing with a depleted lineup missing Filppula (flu), Holmstrom (hand), Osgood (sports hernia), Cleary(ankle), Datsyuk (hand/wrist), Mike Modano (Wrist) and Brad Stuart (Jaw).

    Look for veterans Rolston and Elias to lead the Devils to their 5th straight win with a strong showing from goalie Martin Broduer.

    Prediction: Devils Win 3-1

    Three Stars: Rolston, Arnott, Holmstrom
