New Jersey Devils

What to Watch For

  • Without Toews in the lineup, who takes the faceoffs for the Blackhawks? Domi, Dickinson and…?
  • The Devils are in the league’s top five in scoring and goals against. They’re a wagon and playing with confidence.
  • Jersey has three forwards — Hughes, Bratt and Hischier — who have at least 26 points already. Hughes (13) and Hischier (10) have already reached double-digits in goals. Bratt leads the Devils with 18 assists.
  • Domi was obviously held without a point against the Islanders on Sunday night (duh, the Blackhawks were shutout) but had three multi-point games in his previous five starts (5 goals, 3 assists).
