Here’s what you need to know for tonight’s matchup with the Arizona Coyotes!
1. The Devils are off to a 3-0-0 start on their season-high six-game homestand and looking for their first four-game winning streak since taking five in a row from Feb. 3-10, 2013.
2. The Devils hope to stay hot at home, where they have points in 13 of their last 15 games (10-2-3).
