PRE-GAME REPORT

NEWARK, NJ - The New Jersey Devils travel to Columbus to take no the Blue Jackets for the final game of the preseason. Tonight we will see Taylor Hall, Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes all on the ice for the first time this preseason. Cory Schneider will be in net and is expected to play all 60 minutes in the game.

Tonight will be the second preseason game for Hall, his first on the road, and he's just excited to get in the groove of a road game again. 

"We have a pretty good lineup tonight and hopefully they have a good one too. Personally I can get a feel for what it's like to play on the road again," said Hall.

Hall will also be reunited on a line with Hischier tonight for the first time in a long time. Hall is excited to see the chemistry between the two pick back up again. 

"I'm really excited to play with him, ever since he's come on to our team we've had some good chemistry and hopefully that will continue," said Hall.
