New Jersey Devils (3-0-3) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (4-3-0) ROOT, MSG PLUS, NHLN-US - 1:00 pm/et Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA "Today Zach Parise leads the Pittsburgh Penguins into battle against his former team, the New Jersey Devils" - Headlines according to Hockey Insiderrrrrrrrrr. In reality, Zach Boychuk will make his Penguins debut alongside Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. Fleury will be in net. (The first reply to that Fleury Tweet is "Fleury is the downfall of this team. We need Vokum in goal on Saturday if we want to win" and we just started crying before we could read anything else.)   Happy future-predicting rodent day everyone! Season Series: 0-0-0 Last meeting that counted: March 25, 2012. Penguins won 5-2. What we said in our recap: This game was enormous for the Pens. And it was ferocious from the start. It was hard skating all night. The Pens got up early, saw the Devils tie it, then started skating away with it. A couple Crosby moments worth mentioning here and now. First, the fact that he performed the same move on Zidlicky twice is mind-blowing. Really shouldn't be allowed to do that. (Got a GIF of this in the recap below.) His timing is close to being back to where it's always been. And he's putting pucks home. Know Your Enemy: Running with the Devils What they're saying: The New Jersey Devils showed a lot of fight tonight, but fell just short to the New York Islanders. The Devils lost their first home game of the season and third consecutive contest. A sloppy performance all around tonight led to a 5-4 defeat at the hands of the division rival Isles. Pittsburgh Penguins Lines: Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis Boychuk - Malkin - Neal Cooke - Sutter - Glass Adams - Vitale - Kennedy Orpik - Martin Despres - Letang Lovejoy/Engelland - Bortuzzo Fleury New Jersey Devils Lines: Josefson - Zajac - Kovalchuk Zubrus - Elias - Clarkson Carter - Gionta - Bernier Anderson - Henrique - Barch Salvador - Volchenkov Tallinder - Zidlicky Greene - Fayne Brodeur Lines via Daily Faceoff. We're guessing on Brodeur. "You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?" Do It. Go Pens.
