PRE-GAME REPORT

NEWARK, NJ - The New Jersey Devils travel to Boston to face the Bruins tonight after having a morning skate here in Newark. Tonight will be the second preseason matchup against Boston this year, this time with a squad that's much closer to the final roster for this season.

Getting closer to October 4th means that the internal competition for the Devils is heating up. Two of the players are battling for a roster spot are Kevin Rooney and Nate Bastian.

"The internal competition is great, there are so many great players here, even guys that have been sent down to Binghamton, there's a lot of great players in the organization and it's just going to make the organization better," said Rooney. 

Bastian agreed that the competition makes the organization that much better. 

"I think it's great every day it makes people push a little bit harder and everybody sees what goes on here, I know firsthand how good the players in Binghamton are too…it's awesome for the organization," said Bastian.

Taylor Hall and P.K. Subban will not play in tonight's game against the Bruins and will look to get in the final preseason game this Friday in Columbus.
