Today’s blog picture in honor of Travis Zajac who will be honored today for his 1000 game - all with the Devils.

Speaking of Travis, I think he has looked good this season. He seems to be playing a little longer and keeping up with the kids.

A nice win in Buffalo and a lot of positives.
Now, another test for our 7-6-2 Devils (yes I say this every week) who sit 7th in the East with 2 to 4 games in hand versus the rest. Yes, better than expected.

So be a carful what you wish for.... now that the Devils are healthy thee has been a struggle and adjustment.

Bright spot has been Zacha with 7 points in 5 games and just like that he leads the Devils in points. Where did that come from?
Miles Wood has also impressed me so far this year, he’s is playing a lot more mature and the results are there. I really love his hard nosed play, something this Devils team really needs in the lineup.

Not so bright is Sharangovich, although playing solid he has disappeared at times. With a healthy lineup he needs to redefine himself.
PK and PP still needs a ton of work.

Projected Lineup for today (or at least to start the game)
Johnsson - Hughes - Palmieri
Zacha - Hischier - Bratt
Sharangovich - Zajac - Gusev
Wood - McLeod - Bastian
Smith - Seversen
Kulikov- Subban
Murray - Vatanan

Blackwood - Wedgewood

*Scratch - Dell, Butcher, Kuokkanen

A huge announce to this week, fans are coming back!
For those of us that are local, you have probably been bombarded by the team sales people calls and emails. No surprise but this is great news as goals may start feeling like goals again with a few cheers.

Remember it is a 1pm game today and you can catch The Zajac ceremony on MSG+ for those of you who have it.

Let’s go Devils!!!!!

Truly yours,
The Devils Advocate
