Last night the New Jersey Devils took on a struggling team in the Toronto Maple Leafs and fell short in a shootout; an area the Devils have dominated in this season. Here are some notes on the game, among other things.

from Ken Warren of Senators Extra, (Eugene) Melnyk understands that the Senators, who went into Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins with only one win and two extra time losses in their past six games, need to re-discover their groove soon to qualify for the post-season. He says the situation is akin to a playoff series, with the Senators needing to win four of its remaining...
