Question of the Day
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Don’t write off the New Jersey Devils‘ playoff chances, just yet.
It was on display Sunday night.
The win moved the Devils within five points of Toronto for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Washington is a point behind the Maple Leafs with a game in hand and Columbus is two points back with two games in hand.
“You look at our schedule and if our goaltending continues to play the way it is, I think we can win every game.”
The Devils won this matchup by taking advantage of Toronto mistakes to take a 3-0 lead early in the second period.
“Anything is possible,” Devils captain Bryce Salvador said. “We are not looking 10 games ahead. We’re just looking at the next game. We’re trying to play every game like it’s the last game.”
The skid ties Toronto’s longest of the season and it could not have come at a worse with nine games left in the regular season.
New Jersey, which was shut out twice in its recent slide, capitalized on bad plays by the Maple Leafs.
