The New Jersey Devils may have found a diamond in the rough with rookie goaltender Scott Wedgewood.

With starter Corey Schneider out with an MCL sprain, the Devils will need all the help they can find moving forward.

Today’s game was a must win for the Devils, who faced the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets.

New Jersey has had some trouble with Columbus this season, having lost four out of five against the last place team.

The game wasn’t exactly a barn burner, as neither team was able to cash in on the power play. Both teams had three attempts at the advantage.
