Why you should care: This is going to be a good game. I get the sense that this may be an instant classic between these two teams. The Devils have never won more than five games in a row as a team and have the look this season of a contender. I don’t think there is any doubt that the Penguins are a force, so I expect this game to be a closely contested one for all sixty minutes, if not beyond.
