The New Jersey Devils are back from the dead under head coach Jacques Lemaire.
With each win they accumulate, the New Jersey Devils begin to believe all that much more. It’s been a season of lows and highs, but the team has been flying high in the second half, posting an 18-2-2 record in their last 22 games, and the talk of a miracle comeback to a playoff spot continues to gain steam.
After defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Wednesday night, the Devils moved to within nine points of the eighth seeded Carolina Hurricanes (with a game in hand) and 10 points of the seventh seeded New York Rangers (with two games in hand). They also moved up in the standings past Florida Panthers, lifting the Devils into 12th place in the conference.
