Time to make it a winning streak. Hopefully Daws goes again- no reason for him not to. Let’s keep the momentum rolling. LGD. 

He faced a lot of shots last night, but at his age he should be able to play the second half of a back to back. 

Of course that means we will see Gillies.

Unless we hear that Daws is spent and needs a little rest, there's no reason to start Gillies tonight...like I said previously, I get that he'll have to get some starts here and there (especially if Daws' lil' run is short-lived), but for now, roll with the damned kid.

Agreed, that’s assuming management does what they should do. Big assumption.

I'm just gonna go ahead and brace for a loss here.

Just like we have Vancouver's numbers. Colombus 100% have ours. Someone could say that the blue jackets won their last 84 games against NJ and i'd believe it

Devils didn't play them last year, but believe it or not, the Devils are actually a not-awful 2-1-1 against them in their last four matchups.  (Won the final game against them in 2019-20, and are 1-1-1 against them this season).

But yeah, they got smoked by them so many times before that that I not only expect to lose, but to lose badly.  Like 5-1 or 6-0 bad.

Who knows, maybe these "new" Devils who can score some can turn the tide.  

LGMFD!

Heh heh, OK, just for the record, it's not like I'm CONSTANTLY going with 82 games.  But the reason I've done it on occasion is that with the truncated seasons as of late, I try to at least get an idea of what some players MIGHT do if give more "normal" circumstances under which to perform.  That slightly longer 84-game Zacha sample gave me so much hope...which he's successfully dashed.

I MIGHT be exaggerating the 82 games thing a LITTLE...
