TV: NBC Sports Time: Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. The New Jersey Devils apparently need to start finishing off victories before games reach shootouts if they're going to climb into one of the Eastern Conference wild-card spots. With 10 shootout losses in as many tries this season, including their last two games, the Devils host the Florida Panthers on Monday night with hopes of picking up two points before reaching the tiebreaker. New Jersey has dropped 14 consecutive shootouts, a streak that began last March. "Even if we were just .500 on those, we'd have an extra four or five points and we wouldn't be in this situation," forward Patrik Elias said after a 2-1 road defeat to the New York Islanders on Saturday. The situation the Devils (31-28-15) face is a five-point gap between themselves and the final playoff spot in the East, with three teams to pass in their last eight games.

Are the Devils doomed by the shootout?

It’s plausible that most – if not all – of the 14 teams that miss the 2014 playoffs will end up with “What if?” questions. Some will be deeper than others (“What if we had competent management/better players?”), yet the New Jersey Devils may find a more obvious flaw if they fall short in 2013-14. Simply put, they’ve been glaringly impotent in shootouts. With Saturday’s...
