Devils GameDay: NJ vs. TB, 7:30 PM, FSN NY, WFAN


Low Tech Preview for Tonight.

NJD Line Combos:

Defense

Vitaly Vishnevski – Paul Martin

Andy Greene – Karel Rachunek

Richard Matvichuk – Johnny Oduya

Forward Lines

LW Zach Parise C Travis Zajac RW Brian Gionta

LW Patrik Elias C Dainius Zubrus RW Nicklas Bergfors

LW John Madden C Rod Pelley RW Arron Asham

LW Jay Pandolfo C Sergei Brylin RW David Clarkson

According to Rich Chere.

Also, Kevin Weekes will backup Martin Broudeur tonight.

Keys to the Game:

1. Shut Down Both Offensive Lines. Keeping Richards, St. Louis and Lecavalier is likely the reason that the Madden-Pandolfo line has been split up. If they can neutralize both of their units, the Devils will have a shot at winning.

2. Forecheck. Put pressure on an already unstable defense, now without the injured Dan Boyle.

3. Put the Puck in the Net. Simple as that.

Prediction: Devils 3, Lightning 2.
