Know Thy Enemy

-Taylor Hall leads the Devils with 17 points and 15 assists, while Kyle Palmieri paces the club with seven goals.

-The Devils are tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the worst record in the Metropolitan division, but are winners of two straight.

-Veteran Cory Schneider, winless in his last nine outings, placed on waivers in attempt to be pushed through to AHL Binghamton. Louis Domingue has been called up in his place.

Game Notes

-The Bruins, after coming out of the gates red-hot, are battling a skid of their own recently. The B’s are just 1-2-3 in their past six outings, failing to pick up key points despite still holding onto the Atlantic division’s top spot.

-Jake DeBrusk returned to practice after a two week absence with a lower-body injury. He will travel with the team to New Jersey and likely suit up, providing the Bruins with a much needed jolt on the second line.

-On November 18, both forward Brendan Gaunce and defenseman Urho Vaakanianen were recalled from Providence.
