The Islanders and Devils have already met three times this season, with the road team winning each matchup. The last time the teams met was on Feb. 3, when Johan Hedberg made 22 saves in a 3-0 Devils win. The game was scoreless with four minutes left to play in the third, but the Devils surged late and added an empty netter in the closing seconds to secure victory.
