DEVILS (33-34-4) at BLUE JACKETS (32-28-10)
TV – MSG PLUS (HD), FS-O (HD).
Last 10 – New Jersey 7-3-0; Columbus 1-5-4.
Season series – This is the first and only meeting this season between these teams, who last played more than a year ago, on Mar. 23, 2010. In that game, Ilya Kovalchuk snapped a four-game pointless streak with a four-point night that paced the Devils to a 6-3 home win.
Big story – Both teams are relying on a late-season push to propel them into the playoffs. But a recent slide for both teams has put their respective playoff hopes in peril. The Devils’ scorching-hot play since re-hiring Jacques Lemaire as their head coach on Dec. 23 has hit a speedbump while the Jackets have picked an inopportune time to go cold.

There are certain people on my dash that I need to stop following because they are honestly the epitomy of the HORRIBLE, NASTY, SHIT TALKING THAT DON’T STOP fan and it’s just not good for my RAGE issues.
That said I’d like to replace them with some good hockey fans.
Favorite team specifics if you want them: Columbus Blue Jackets, New Jersey Devils, Minnesota Wild, Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins, Vancouver Canucks, Philly Flyers, Team Russia
But just general fans and fans of other teams are more than welcome too.
If you are a RATIONAL hockey fan and would like a new follower let me know by reblogging, or replying or ask boxing me.
