The Devils continued to build on what has become somewhat of anomaly with Saturday's win in that they've dominated the second game of back-to-backs while tired, but have struggled to win games while fresh.

BEST OF MAXIM
Travis Zajac might never want to score a goal again after netting the most painful one of his career on Saturday night.
The New Jersey Devils forward scored the go-ahead goal with 6:57 remaining in the third period as he deflected a Marek Zidlicky slap shot off his face and into the back of the net. It was Zajac’s seventh goal of the season and one he probably won’t be forgetting...

Bernier was taking on Marek Zidlicky one-on-one and cut to the outside when the two got tangled up. Bernier went down and slid hard into the end boards, head and shoulder first.
It was about time the Devils got a break on goaltender Cory Schneider’s behalf.
With the Devils’ goal production again slowing to a trickle, it looked like Schneider was going to get only one goal of offensive support again Saturday night. Then, a Marek Zidlicky slap shot deflected in off the top of Travis Zajac’s left shoulder with 6:57 left in regulation to snap a tie and...
As a New York Rangers fan growing up just outside New York, Blue Jackets right wing Cam Atkinson had a fervent love-hate relationship with the New Jersey Devils.
