Vanecek and Schmid will be under pressure to bolster the Devils' defense, especially against a potent Penguins offense.
The Penguins, with an 8-6-0 record, are riding high on a winning streak, showcasing their offensive prowess and resilience.
Penguins have some players listed as day-to-day, including key contributors like Jeff Carter and Evgeni Malkin. However, their depth has proven effective in overcoming such challenges.

|Jesper Bratt (Devils)||20||7||13|
|Sidney Crosby (Penguins)||19||10||9|
Crosby's stellar performance has been a driving force behind the Penguins' recent success.
Before making our prediction, let's review the recent performances of both teams:
New Jersey Devils
The Devils are on a bit of a skid, entering this game on a losing streak, including a tough defeat against Winnipeg (L6-3).
The Penguins are on fire, securing victories in their last five games, including a notable win against Columbus (W5-3).
With the Penguins in red-hot form and the Devils struggling on the road, we predict that the Pittsburgh Penguins will extend their winning streak and emerge victorious in this matchup.
