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.
