The New Jersey Devils must have a guardian angel.
The National Hockey League is in talks with two investors about taking a minority stake in the money-losing team, The Post has learned.
The deal under discussion with ex-Tampa Bay Lightning owner Oren Koules and former pro hockey player Brian Lawton would allow the pair to take eventual ownership of the cash-strapped franchise if they cover losses beyond a certain point, according to sources.
“A deal is not far off,” one source said.
