2012-13 season series (3-2-0)
The Islanders and Devils met five times last season, with the Islanders earning two points in three of those contests. The last time out, Josh Bailey scored in the opening minute as New York skated to a 3-1 decision at Prudential Center. Travis Hamonic and John Tavares each tallied, while Frans Nielsen registered two assists. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 24-of-25 as the Islanders finished a sweep of the away portion of the season series.

Devils player to watch
Martin Brodeur - Goaltender

Brodeur's streak of 18 consecutive opening night starts may have come to an end, but the all-time leader in games played (1,220), wins (669) and shutouts (121) should be between the pipes during the Devils home opener. The Islanders got the better of Brodeur the last time they saw him, scoring four times on 13 shots on Sept. 19.
