Be sure to check Betway to check out the latest Jets game day odds and bet on the NHL! The New Jersey Devils get to say their goodbyes to Collin Miller and Tyler Toffoli tonight with their return to New Jersey since they were traded at the deadline.
Tonight will be another tight game as the Devils are one of five teams fighting for the final Wild Card playoff spot in the East. They are six points back of the Detroit Red Wings for that playoff spot in the east. The Jets are looking to be sole owners of the Central Division with a victory tonight.
The Devils are coming off a 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 19th but in their last ten they are a lowly 3-7-0.  The Jets should be feeling good scoring 16 goals in their last three games and have the opposite record of New Jersey going 7-3-0.


The Jets are 4-1-0 in their last five meetings against the Devils and have outscored them 24-13 in that time.
Laurent Brossoit is expected to make the start tonight, he is 2-0-0 against New Jersey and has a 3.23 goals against average and a .910 save percentage against them but both games went to the shootout and took place pre-pandemic. Jake Allen will take on the Jets tonight for the Devils. He is 8-8-3 against the Jets with an .889 save percentage and a 3.15 goals against average.
Neal Pionk missed practice with the Jets yesterday for maintenance day and potential illness. Colin Miller will draw in for Pionk tonight and will play beside Brenden Dillon. Cole Perfetti is being scratched for the fourth straight game David Gustafsson takes his spot in the line up. Scott Arniel will be the bench boss for the second straight game for the Jets as Rich Bowness is at home recovering from a minor medical procedure.
The injury bug has been unkind to the devils this season they will be missing Doughie Hamilton, Nolan Foote and John Marino will miss this game dues to injuries.

Jets projected lineup

Connor –  Scheifele- Iafallo
Ehlers – Monohan – Tofolli
Niederreiter –  Lowry – Appleton
Barron – Gustafsson- Namestnikov
Morrissey -DeMelo
Dillon – Miller
Samberg – Schmidt
Brossoit .927 SV%
