Twenty ‘Til Liftoff: A Look At The Final 20 Games Of Devils Season

March 5th, 2010 by Doug Gausepohl Leave a reply »
For the first time since mid-October, the Devils find themselves in an odd position.

Not at the top of the Atlantic Division.

With Pittsburgh's 5-4 overtime win against the New York Rangers at the Garden tonight, the Penguins hopped over the Devils into first place with 80 points, one ahead of the Devils.

The Devils have 20 games left to play, with 40 points out for the taking.  The amount they'll be able to gather is up to them.

For a long time, the Devils lackluster play didn't catch up with them in the standings (pre-Olympic break).  Well, it did tonight.

Here are the next (and last) twenty remaining games for the Devils, along with my thoughts on how many points they'll be able to conjure up in the next four and a half weeks.

1. @ Calgary Flames

Record: 30-24-9 (69 PTS), 3rd place in Northwest, 9th place in West

Outlook: Flames aren't a great home team (15-15-3), and they got shut out at home by the Wild on Wednesday.  That said, they should be hungry to collect two points at home tomorrow night after being embarrassed in their building two nights earlier.
