New Jersey Devils VS Florida Panthers match analysis

New Jersey Devils are five points away from the Eastern Conference's final wild-card spot and they will try reach it in remaining eight games. Their form is not satisfactory, so there is a fear that they will not be able to achieve this goal. They achieved only four victories, three in the regular 60 minutes, in the last ten games, and none of those wins was not achieved with handicap. OT has been in three of the last five games. The Devils have problems with efficiency, as they scored a goal every 30 attempts this season. Devils defensemen Jon Merrill, Bryce Salvador and Anton Volchenkov, as well as forwards Stephen Gionta and Tim Sestito are also out due to injuries. Florida Devils are outside playoff chase, since they are 20 points back of the final wild-card spot, but they will play for their honor because all their remaining opponents in the playoff chase. Their form is weaker than the Devils, as they lost seven of their last ten games, and played twice in the OT period. Goalie Roberto Luongo, forwards Jonathan Huberdeau, Tomas Kopecky and Aleksander Barkov, as well as defensemen Tom Gilbert and Alex Petrovic are all out due to injury. Two of the last four games between these two teams played in New Jersey have been decided in OT. They already met twice this season, and the second game was also determined in OT. Everything is possible in such games, and I think there are real chances for watching once again OT.
