Pens vs Devil Preview

The Pens are 46-22-6 with a 4th seed in the Eastern Conference at 98 points, which is now three behind the Rangers with 101 points. The Devils come into the contest with a record of 42-27-6 with a comfortable 6th seed in the Eastern Conference at 90 points. The hold a four point lead over the Senators.

The Devils are still having trouble with scoring. Even their top scorers are not finding the back of the net. Which could in favor of the Pens, unless they find the twine tonight.

Travis Zajac will be returning for the Devils after having problems with a previous injury (Achilles heel injury). It is his first game back since Jan. 2. This could help the Devils with their scoring problems.

Cooke has been on fire for the Pens, since Sid's return. He extended his career high last night to 19 goals thanks in large part to Sid. Giving credit to Cooke he has been the one with the finishing touches.

Sid has finally scored and this could open the flood gates. Lets hope it does against the Devils.

Flower will between the pipes for the Pens. The net minder has equaled his career high of 40 wins since 2006-07 season. He is only three wins away from tieing Barrasso's single-season franchise win record of 43. He has with 224 career wins and is closing in on Barrasso's all-time franchise record off 226.
