New Jersey Devils Game Notes for road game at Columbus tonight

*They’ve lost to Toronto and Washington by a combined 12-6 in the first two games of the trip and are in Columbus tonight.

*Tonight’s game is the second of four meetings between the two teams this season. In their only previous meeting, the Blue Jackets prevailed 5-1 on December 21.

Last season, Columbus won all four meetings; three in regulation and one in a shootout.

A LOOK AT THE DEVILS

*The Devils have dropped each of their past two games after a pair of big wins last weekend. After defeating Washington (in Washington) and at home against Tampa Bay, who had won 10 straight heading into the game at Prudential Center, they had two really tough matchups against the Toronto Maple Leafs and a rematch in Washington.

*Blake Coleman leads the Devils with 18 goals and is tied for the NHL lead with three shorthanded markers on the season.

*Despite seven players out due to injury, the Blue Jackets have continued to roll in the tough, competitive Metropolitan Division.

Since December 9, the Blue Jackets have owned the best record in the NHL with 30 points in 19 games (13-2-4). They have moved into a tie for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, tied with Philadelphia with 56 points.

With #1 goaltender Joonas Korpisalo out, backup Elvis Merzlikins has stepped up. This past Thursday, he has his shutout streak snapped at 166:29 which was the third longest such streak in Blue Jackets history. Going back to December 31, he is tied for the NHL lead in wins and shutouts and is third in save percentage.

*Over their past eight home games, the Jackets are 6-1-1 and have outscored opponents 24-11. They have picked up points against Eastern Conference opponents in 12 straight games (9-0-3) and seven straight against their Metropolitan Division rivals (5-0-2).

Columbus leads the NHL in goal differential in the third period going back to December 9 at +15 with 25 goals (tied for 3rd) and 10 goals against (tied for 2nd).
