Sunday, January 10, 7:00 PM on NBCS
Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, Minnesota
This will be the first meeting of the season between the Devils and Wild. And, it will be the first time New Jersey gets national coverage, giving Steve Cangialosi and Ken Danyeko a break from play-by-play duties.
6-2. That was the score the last time New Jersey played in Minnesota on March 10th of last season. Also, that was the first of a three-game road trip.
Oddly enough, the Devils will start another multi-game game road trip when they visit the Wild.
No need for words here. As Rich Chere of NJ.com titled his postgame article, the Devils were embarrassed out of Xcel Energy Center.
This is bulletin board material for a team that would like nothing better than to turn the tables, and make last season’s poor showing a distant memory for the Wild and their fans.
