7:00 PM,Prudential Center, Newark, NJ
This is probably the biggest game of the season to date. The Devils have two games in hand on the Penguins and are four points back. They also have one less win as the Penguins. You do the math.
This is a four point game possibly. The Penguins win and they are six points up and still only playing two more games. Huge.
If you are going to the game tonight in New Jersey and you want to see what it is going to look like in the stands here you go. Pretend you are in your seat. Stand up, turn around and this is what you will see:
Here are the lines for the Penguins from their official web site:
Flower is back in net. He is riding a six game point streak where he is 3-0-3 during that span.
The Penguins have to play against Marty and US hero Zach Parise. I love Parise as a player and he can take games over just like Marty can. Earlier this season I was at the game where Marty broke the shutout record.
The Penguins have really struggled against the Devils this seasons going without a win in four contests. Marty has shut out the Penguins twice so far.
