Know The Enemy – Devils vs Nashville Predators

Posted by on December 17, 2010

A few notes and stats to get you caught up on tonight’s opponent:


- Martin Brodeur is expected to start in net.

- Ilya Kovalchuk had his first multi-goal game for the Devils against Phoenix. Hopefully, that’s the start of a big scoring streak.

- Pekka Rinne, Nashville’s #1 goalie, made the trip to NJ. He had been out with a knee injury. No word yet on if he will start.

- Tonight is the annual Devils Toys for Tots drive. Bring an unwrapped toy if you are attending the game.
