New Jersey kept their postseason hopes afloat with a 3-1 decision at Carolina on Saturday. With the win the Devils are still one point behind Columbus for the second Wild Card with Toronto. The Devils improved to 4-0-3 in their last seven outings with Dainius Zubrus leading the offense with a pair of tallies while Travis Zajac also found the back of the net to make Cory Schnieder's 26 saves hold up.

The Canes have four games left and are six points behind the Blue Jackets for the 2nd WC.
