St. Louis Blues
As if the New Jersey Devils didn’t have enough problems already. They will be without goaltender Martin Brodeur and with their punchless offense Saturday when they try to salvage a win in the finale of their three-game road trip against the St. Louis Blues.
After Thursday night’s 3-1 loss in Toronto at the hands of the struggling Maple Leafs, I think it’s time to come right out and say it: the Devils are in crisis mode.
Ty Conklin made 27 saves for his 15th NHL shutout, Alexander Steen scored twice and the surging St. Louis Blues stifled yet another opponent in beating the New York Rangers 2-0 on Sunday night for their seventh straight win.
