The New Jersey Devils just can't catch a break right now and have been simply unbackable on the road for quite some time. The Edmonton Oilers have put together an impressive stretch of hockey these last couple of weeks and are getting the job done defensively for once. The price isn't great, but the Devils have been fade material on the road and should remain that given their current form.
