The New Jersey Devils could use a big victory after a subpar 1-3-1 start to the season. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 1.5 goals per game and are scoring on 26.7 percent of their power plays. Adam Henrique leads New Jersey with three goals, Mike Cammalleri has three assists and Lee Stempniak has 10 shots on goal. Defensively, the New Jersey Devils are allowing three goals per game and are killing 66.7 percent of their power play chances. Cory Schneider has allowed five goals on 91 shots faced and Keith Kinkaid has given up five goals on 44 shots. Schneider has allowed three goals in five of his last seven outings. Tuomo Ruutu and Jonathon Merrill are questionable.
The Coyotes are 21-43 in their last 64 road games and 3-11 in their last 14 vs. a team with a losing record. The Devils are 7-20 in their last 27 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 in their last 4 home games. The Coyotes are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in New Jersey.
The Devils have to win a home game eventually, as they've lost four straight at the Prudential Center. The Coyotes haven't been great on the road and haven't had much success in New Jersey. I'll take the Devils to get a win in front of their home fans.
