New Jersey Devils (42-27-6) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (46-22-6)

7:00 pm/et

TV: ROOT, MSG Plus

Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA

The Pens will try to bounce back after yesterday's game in Ottawa.

Season Series: 2-3-0

Last meeting that counted: March 17, 2012. Penguins won 5-2.

What we said in our recap:

What triggered the big day for the Pens? The Neal Play™ off the face-off. The most amazing thing about it is that the Devils, a team pretty much a lock for the playoffs unless they choke, either didn't watch film on the Penguins or simply couldn't defend it. It may be the latter. Every one in the NHL has seen the Penguins score on The Neal Play at least a dozen times this year. NHL players have seen it as they watch highlights on NHL Network. It's nothing new, and the Penguins continue to execute it.

Know Your Enemy: Running With The Devils

What they're saying:

Travis Zajac is almost back! Look to see him possibly back Sunday night @ Pittsburgh or sometime next week. The Devils certainly do miss Zajac and with his presence, the power play will improve! Attendance tonight at the Prudential Center was 16,022 (91% full). Josefson must feel proud knowing that he broke a long goal drought. His last goal was on 3/30/11 against the Islanders (NJ won that game 3-2 in OT).
