The Devils in the Details will be a weekly post, looking back on the stats from your New Jersey Devils in their past week of play. Games between Sunday and Saturday from every week will be highlighted, with stats like Goals, Assists, PIM, Shots, etc. being the main focus. This week, we take a look at the Devils between March 3 and March 9, a week many Devils fans would probably like to forget. The Devils played four games against the Maple Leafs, Lightning, Sabres, and Hurricanes and went 1-3-0. If it wasn’t for a shootout win over the Sabres on Thursday night, the Devils would have had their worst week in the season, and could be in the middle of a 8-game losing streak.

Match-Up

Your New Jersey Devils (10-6-5) will be travelling to Toronto on Monday evening to face-off against the Toronto Maple Leafs (13-9-0) to finish off their 3-game road trip. So far, the road trip hasn’t gone as the Devils and their fans would have liked, falling 3-1 to the Jets, and 4-3 in a shootout in Buffalo. The Devils have only gotten 1 out of a possible 4 points on the road trip, and will be looking to add two points at Toronto’s expense. This will be the first meeting of the two teams this season, and the first of two “north of the border”. Last season, the Devils went 2-1-1 against the Leafs, winning both games in Toronto, with both of them needing to go to overtime.

3rd Star: Tyler Ennis (1 SO Goal)

2nd Star: Ryan Miller (3 GA, 28 Saves)

The Devils (10-6-5) were once again left with a familiar feeling after falling to the Buffalo Sabres (9-12-1) in the shootout Saturday evening. Devils fans were glad to see the Carter-Gionta-Bernier line reunited, after Carter was activated from IR. Both teams’ power plays were held scoreless, the Devils going 0-5 and the Sabres going 0-6. Each team also gave up a short-handed goal. The Devils have now dropped 7 out of their last 9 games.

Jets Shoot Down Devils – Devils Fall 3-1, Drop 3rd Straight

New Jersey Devils vs Winnipeg Jets

Three Stars of the Game:

3rd Star: Dustin Byfulgien (1 assist)

2nd Star: Ondrej Pavelec (1 GA, 22 Saves)

1st Star: Andrew Ladd (2 goals, 1 assist, 1 GWG)

The Devils (10-6-4) were once again left wondering where their offense went as they dropped their third consecutive game, falling 3-1 to the Winnipeg Jets (10-9-1). The Devils had their chances to score, but were unable to take advantage of these opportunities. The one silver-lining for the Devils is that they still have a respectable record, but are now 1-4-1 in their past six games.
