Ok, pre season is over and after a long break, we can see what this team can do. Actually, we see if the 1 game in 10 days gave us a chance to re-group and sort some things out.
Injury report: Hamhuis, Ballard, Bolduc, Rypien, Burrows and Bolduc - and of course, Salo. The Devils have a handful of players out as well, including Parise.
The Devils are struggling at the start of the season, averaging about a goal a game less than us, while letting in an extra goal a game. This will also be the only game against NJ this year.
We'll be seeing the how Luongo matches up against the greatest goalie of all time (the Canucks have 6 of the 7 last meetings against NJ and are 52-31-17 all time). This will also be a chance to see what all the about Kovolchuk was.NHL.com Preview
