HERE IS A VIDEO OF JAGR BEING INTERVIEWED BEFORE MORNING SKATE REALLY THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TODAY I THINK

JAGR IS BEING CENTERED BY SEGUIN AND HAS MARCHAND ON HIS WING EVERYBODY FREAK OUT

The Devils have lost four straight games, and they last played on Monday night against the Islanders, a game which they lost 3-1. They acquired Steve Sullivan at the trade deadline yesterday, but according to In Lou We Trust's John Fischer, he won't be available to play tonight. Kaspars Daugavins, on the other hand, seems to have gotten his visa issues all squared away, and should be centering the third line tonight....which means....no more Jay Pandolfo? DO WE DARE TO DREAM?

The last time the Devils squared off against the Bruins, Johan Hedberg was in net; Martin Brodeur has since gotten healthy, so we should see Marty in net tonight. At the Bruins' end of the ice, it should be Tuukka Rask starting, following two strong performances by Anton Khudobin, including a 45-save effort against the Senators on Tuesday night.

Will Jaromir Jagr help the flaccid power play against a struggling Devils team? Will Kaspars Daugavins try a fancy trick shot during regulation? Will Chris Kelly be back soon?? Stay tuned to find out.
