Erik Kallgren had 29 saves to get his first victory of the season.

Prediction

The Devils have been playing great lately and just beat 3 of the best teams in the NHL like the Flyers, Bruins and Hurricanes but they lost earlier agasint the Islanders in New York. The Islanders are on a hot streak as they have won 7 games in a row but going against the Devils in New Jersey won't be easy as they have lost only 1 game at home. I expect a very close game and with both teams playing great defense I think the under is the play.
