The Devils' injury list reads like a book.  One can even argue they have an All-Star caliber team on the IR.  But make no mistake, the Devils are still winning games without their goaltender.  And their power-play point man.  And their hard-hitting fourth liner. 

Yeah, they're still winning.

Mark it: five in a row for the Devils.  Whether the Devs plan to start the Devil-turned-Maple Leaf-turned-Devil-again Scott Clemmensen or eternal backup Kevin Weekes, they're going to come into this game riding on a high wave.  That alone is more than the Pens can say after last night's game in Buffalo.

Then again they're not beating teams that are necessarily - how do you say, good?  Minus the 6-5 win over Washington two weeks ago, the Devils also notched two wins over the Panthers, one over the Islanders and a monstrous 7-3 win over the Lightning.  Of course the Penguins gave Buffalo their first win in five games last night, so Pitt can hardly talk.

Man, I really have to let things go.

Puck drops at 7:30.
