Devils go retro vs. Penguins on St. Patrick's Day

NHL.com @NHL
St. Patrick's Day is upon us, and the New Jersey Devils will celebrate in style as part of the NHL's three-game schedule on Wednesday night.

The Devils will wear their retro red, white and green uniforms when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Prudential Center at 7 p.m. ET. The Devils had green as one of their colors from the franchise's inception in 1982 until they switched to black in 1992.

Not only will the Devils look festive, but they'll be playing for first place in the Atlantic Division. New Jersey (41-24-3) is just two points behind Pittsburgh (41-23-5) and has a game in hand on the defending Stanley Cup champs, whom they beat 3-1 in Newark last Friday. The game can be seen on RDS in Canada.

The Calgary Flames, who lost a potentially-devastating 2-1 decision at home to Detroit on Monday night, returns to the ice Wednesday to take on the Colorado Avalanche at the Pepsi Center at 9 p.m. ET. Colorado (39-23-6) currently sits in sixth place in the Western Conference after a 5-3 win over St. Louis on Wednesday, while the Flames fell three behind the No. 8 Wings on Monday. Wednesday's showdown can be seen on TSN in Canada.

In the final game of the night, the Chicago Blackhawks visit the Anaheim Ducks at 10 p.m. ET. The Ducks, who could be without both Teemu Selanne and Ryan Getzlaf, are 10 points out of a playoff spot but are coming off a 4-2 win over San Jose on Sunday. The game can be seen in the U.S. on the NHL Network.
