New Jersey Devils
New Jersey Devils (4-3-1, 9 pts) @ Dallas Stars (7-3-0, 14 pts)
7:00 PM, October 29, 2011
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
The Stars have a chance to get back on track after suffering their first home loss of the season to the LA Kings on Thursday. The New Jersey Devils are a middle-of-the-road team in the Eastern Conference and are coming off a 5-3 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.
The Devils are on the final game of their four game road trip that has taken them across the country. They've gone from Pittsburgh to LA to Phoenix and now to Dallas. They've lost 2 of those 3 games and fatigue could be a problem for them. Goalie Martin Brodeur has a shoulder injury so Johan Hedburg is the likely starter in net for the Devils. He's 4-2-1 on the year with a 2.31 GAA and a .926 save percentage.
Their defense has also had a lot of trouble, allowing four goals in 3 of their last 4 games. Dallas certainly has a chance to score a good amount.
