NHL.com @NHL
It's a busy Monday night in the NHL -- and one when the New Jersey Devils will aim to join some elite company.

The Devils kick off a six-game schedule against the Flyers in Philadelphia, where they'll look to open a season with 10 consecutive road victories. The Buffalo Sabres reeled off 10 straight wins on the road to start the 2006-07 season after Toronto had originally set the mark in 1993-94. Detroit owns the NHL record for consecutive road victories, putting together a 12-game streak in 2006 from March 1-April 15.

New Jersey (14-4-0) has won eight in a row overall and sits atop the Atlantic Division. The game, which begins at 7 p.m. ET, can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.

Two other games begin at 7 p.m. -- the New York Islanders, who are 1-0-2 on their seven-game road trip, will take on the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. Also, the Columbus Blue Jackets (10-6-2) will host the Edmonton Oilers (8-10-2) at Nationwide Arena.

The Pittsburgh Penguins, who now have Evgeni Malkin back in their lineup, will host the Anaheim Ducks at 7:30 p.m. ET. Pittsburgh (13-7-0) rallied to beat Boston in a shootout on Saturday, while the Ducks (6-9-3) dropped a 7-4 decision at Detroit. At the same time, the Los Angeles Kings (12-7-2) finish up their five-game road trip at Florida against the Panthers.

In the final game of the night, the Phoenix Coyotes (11-8-0) will host the Tampa Bay Lightning at Jobing.com Arena. The Lightning dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to the Kings on Saturday, while the Coyotes eked out a 3-2 win against Dallas.
