The Devils (10-5-4) will play the Winnipeg Jets (9-9-1) for the second time in as many games tonight for the second of three meetings this season. This will be the Devils only visit to Winnipeg. On Sunday, the Jets scored three straight after the Devils took a 2-1 lead going into the second period to steal a road victory 4-2. The beauty of a shortened season is it doesn’t take long to be able to get a shot at revenge against any opponent, and the Devils will be looking to do just that tonight at the MTS Centre.
Tonight, the Devils Generals will get to spend the evening at PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital cheering up children and families. The Generals and the Devils organization have been asked to help decorate “shadow boxes” in one of the hallways to help brighten up the lives of those who spend a lot of time inside the confines of a hospital.
I recently spoke with Beth Anne Dobosh, Director of Community Engagement, to get some background on the hospital. Here is what she shared with me:
Following up from my previous post about being behind the scenes at the Prudential Center, we were lucky enough to play host to a very special guest February 4th, 2013. Everyone that traveled with him called him Oscar, but most people know him as the Academy Award, and the Rock was just one of the stops on a brand new venture being called the Oscar Roadtrip.
The award show aired Sunday night, but for 20 long days leading up the big show Ben Gleib and Angie Greenup would drive across the country in an RV with an actual Oscar filming bits for the Oscar Roadtrip. The second day of the trip was the best day in my opinion, but I’m a little biased because that was the day I got to see Oscar in Newark New Jersey. And it happened to be a Devils v. Rangers match up on top of that, because we all know how exciting those games are. Maybe I even stole a picture with him real quick, but I couldn’t get any information out of the little guy about who’s winning any awards this year so don’t bother asking me either!
Three Stars of the Game
3rd Star: M. Ribeiro (WAS) (2 assists)
2nd Star: Braden Holtby (WAS) (1 GA, 21 Saves)
1st Star: Alexander Ovechkin (WAS) (3 goals, 1 assist, GWG)
Coming off a hard-fought, come-from-behind win on Thursday night, the Devils were hoping to take both games in D.C. and extend their lead in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference. The Capitals, however, had other plans.
