DAB Pregame: Devils Hope To Avoid Season Sweep Against Lightning

Last season, the New Jersey Devils (9-11-5) swept their season series against the Tampa Bay Lightning (19-7-1). Now, the shoe is on the other foot, as the Bolts have won both games played so far in blowout fashion. The Devils will have home ice advantage against Tampa Bay for the first time this season tonight, so there is reason to be optimistic as the Devils have performed well on home ice and abysmal on the road. New Jersey is looking to avoid a season sweep at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning while also hoping to end a five-game losing streak when the puck drops tonight at the Rock at 7pm.
