Neither the New Jersey Devils nor the Tampa Bay Lightning excel on the power play, but two goals with the man advantage proved to be the difference the last time these teams met.
Both teams are trying to shake off recent rough stretches heading into their rematch Monday night at the St. Pete Times Forum.
Tampa Bay (12-15-2) ranks 24th on the power play at 14.7 percent and New Jersey (14-13-1) is 26th at 12.6 percent.
The Lightning ranked sixth in the league at 20.5 percent in 2010-11, when they reached the Eastern Conference finals.
"Because our power play has been really not good this year, and that's the difference," Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher said. "That's the difference from last year. Power play was winning us games, and now it's not."
The Devils were also lamenting their power play after going 0 for 3 in Saturday's 2-1 home loss to Montreal.
"There's different parts of our game where we don't play with that confidence," coach Pete DeBoer said. "That's one of them."
