Winning two out of their last three games, the Devils will look for their first back-to-back wins since a five-game win streak in early February against a Flyers team that is also looking for consecutive wins  after defeating Buffalo to end a three-game losing skid. Dropping only one game in regulation so far within the Atlantic Division (7-1-2), the Devils are looking to find consistency following a losing streak that stretched from February 23- March 5th. Johan Hedberg (4-7-2) will make his 10th consecutive start for the Devils and has yet to post back-to-back wins in his time as the starting goalie while Martin Brodeur remains on the IR.

Another Poor Effort From The Flyers

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull, The Flyers hit rock bottom with a listless 5-1 defeat in New Jersey on Wednesday night, losing ground on one of the teams they are chasing in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt. It was s stunningly poor effort, considering the importance of the game. They are 11th in the East with a 12-15-1 record — the most losses in the NHL...

That’s what Simon Gagne was wondering on Wednesday, as reporters pestered him about the nickname of his new line - with fellow Francophones Sean Couturier and Danny Briere - as the “French Connection II.” It did not matter that most in the Flyers’ locker room couldn’t...
