Devils fans are back at The Rock for an important rivalry game.

On Tuesday, the New Jersey Devils are welcoming approximately 1,800 fans back at the Prudential Center for their game against the New York Islanders. The Rock will be at 10% of capacity but even so, fans couldn’t be more excited.

The Devils are going through a bit of a rough patch and the hope is that the return of fans can help them break out of that slump. This won’t be an easy task, as the Devils will be taking on one of the best teams in the league.

Fans are excited to see the new and improved Jack Hughes as well as some new faces like Andreas Johnsson and the exciting rookie Ty Smith.

Let’s see if the Devils can give their fans, who haven’t been in the house in almost a year due to COVID-19, a win that they desperately need.
