Game Preview – Game 60: Your New Jersey Devils vs. Vancouver Canucks

New Jersey Devils vs Vancouver Canucks

New Jersey Devils (35-20-4, 74 points) vs. Vancouver Canucks (39-16-6, 84 points)

Matchup:

Tonight is the only match-up between the Devils and the Canucks this season.  The last time these two teams met, Roberto Luongo stole the show and outdueled Martin Brodeur, 3-0.  However, Corey Schneider is in goal tonight for Vancouver, so there will be no goalie rematch this time.

Somebody call 9-1-1:

With a win against the Maple Leafs on Tuesday night, the Devils are now 9-1-1 since the All-Star Break, and continue to gain ground in the Eastern Conference. They are tied in points with the Bruins with 74, and are just 7 points behind the 1st place Rangers.
The top line of Ilya Kovalchuk, Adam Henrique and Zach Parise continue to provide pivotal scoring during games. David Clarkson also continues to find the back of the net for New Jersey and is currently second on the team in goals scored, with 23.
New Jersey has scored the first goal of the game in a club record nine straight and have compiled a 7-2-0 record in the process.

Honoring Doc:

The Devils will honor Mike Emrick tonight, with a ceremony before the game. The Hall of Fame broadcaster, will receive a number of awards and give a speech during the ceremony. MSG+ will provide exclusive coverage of  the event starting at 6:30 pm, with Devils Game Night.

Doc-Out for Doc Night: New Jersey Devils Honor Mike “Doc” Emrick on February 24th

Mike “Doc” Emrick was the New Jersey Devils play-by-play guy for 21 years before he stepped down last summer. His voice was synonymous with the Devils and we were all sad to see him go. Starting this season, he has been calling games for NBC/Versus full time and while we still get to hear him cover a few Devils games now and then, it just isn’t the same.

But, we’ve got some good news – Doc is coming back on Friday the 24th and the Devils will be honoring him before the start of the game against Vancouver. If you don’t already have your tickets, I’d suggest you get them now. We have a great idea to show Doc – and everyone else watching – that we miss having him around the Prudential Center. We want to have a Doc-Out and we need you to help! It’s pretty simple, here’s what you need to do.

1. Click on Doc below, download the mask from Mediafire and print it out.

2. You can either tape a popsicle stick to the back and hold it up in front of your face. Or, tie some string to either side of Doc’s glasses, snug enough to stay above your ears and around your head, to make your mask hands free. Cutting out some eyes wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

See, easy. Get your masks ready and help us show Doc how much he means to the Devils Army by helping us create a Doc-Out!
