The New Jersey Devils (34-20-4) will take on the Toronto Maple Leafs (29-24-6) at Air Canada Centre Tuesday night at 7 p.m. (TV: MSG Plus 2).
Since the All-Star break, the Devils are probably the hottest team in the NHL. In their last ten games, New Jersey is 8-1-1. Toronto has been a little under the .500 mark over their last ten games. The season series is tied at one game apiece, with each team winning on the other's home ice.
For the Devils, Martin Brodeur has been great in net of late with a 9-3-1 record in his previous 13 starts with a 1.75 Goals Against Average and a .929 save percentage in those games. Toronto's offense has been struggling and their leading scorer, Joffrey Lupul, missed practice on Monday after taking a shot off of his ankle in Toronto's last game. Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise have been guiding the offense for the Devils. Kovalchuk has 18 points since the All-Star break while Parise has gotten 12 points in his last 12 games.
