New Jersey Devils (23-27-10 56pts) vs San Jose Sharks (26-30-4 56pts)
After losing to the St.Louis Blues the other night, the New Jersey Devils hope to get back in the win column against the San Jose Sharks. Tonight was a tight defensive game with very low scoring. Defenseman Tim Heed of the Sharks would get the lone goal of the period and his first of the year. After the first period, the Devils would trail the Sharks 1-0.
Jesper Bratt would even the score up for the Devils and score his twelfth of the season. Pavel Zacha would send a stretch pass up the middle to Bratt who would put on some nice moves to deceive Sharks goalie Aaron Dell and get the puck by him for the goal. After the second period, the score would be tied 1-1 between the two teams.
In the third period, PK Subban would notch the game winner on the power play as he snapped a shot from the point which went behind the Sharks goalie. New Jersey held their own defensively and played stellar defense to give them the win by a final score of 2-1. The Devils are back in action on Saturday against the Washington Capitals for an early 1 o’clock start.
