There's a big game taking place Thursday night at the Rock in Newark.
The Devils against the Islanders.
No. 29 in the NHL standings against No. 30.
This is big.
The Devils lost again Tuesday night, in Washington, and remained two points ahead of the Isles for that 29th spot. The Islanders, however, have three games in hand and could move into a tie for 29th with a home upset of the Lightning on Wednesday night.
Regardless, No. 29 will be on the line when these two New York-area rivals get together in the opener of the Devils' four-game homestand.
The Devils' latest losing streak has reached three games, during which they have scored three goals and allowed 15.
