Gameday - Devils

Pengrowth Saddledome

New Jersey @ Calgary

Sportsnet West, FSN - NY

  • New Jersey comes into Calgary tonight, after beating the Oilers in Edmonton on Friday.
  • Calgary is coming of a tough overtime loss to the Dallas Stars Friday night, in a game were they seemed to dominate play for the last two periods, but had difficulty with a red-hot Mike Smith in net for the Texans.
  • Zach Parise is the Devils lead in goals (15), assists (20), and obviously points (do the math). Which obviously points to a low scoring team, as everyone knows.
  • The big player for the Devils is Martin Brodeur, and it seems that it is solely his plays that determines if the team wins or loses. They either win a low scoring game, or they get blown out. There doesn't seem to be an in between.
  • Iginla was kept of the scoresheet on Friday night (except for his -2), so look for a big game from him tonight.

I won't be able to catch this game, as I'm heading up to Haliburton and my parents don't have Centre Ice (Boooooo! j/k)...

I debated recording it, but I wouldn't be able to watch it for a week, so I'll just catch the highlights...

Given the Devils propensity to avoid scoring goals, I'm thinking this will be a low scoring game...

Flames win 3-0 in a good, old-fashioned, New Jersey barn burner. Kipper finally gets his first shut out of the season, with some support by goals from Lombardi and Iginla x2...

Go Flames!
