Devils Close Out 2015 Season With Chance To Play Spoiler Against Rangers

The New Jersey Devils have had a disappointing season to say the least. The team has already been removed from playoff contention. Goals were the issue for this New Jersey squad, as they ranked 28th in the NHL in overall goal scoring. They did not have a player who scored over 50 points this season and also did not have a player score more than 30 goals this season. The team still holds an eight-8 point lead over the Carolina Hurricanes for the bottom of the division, however they rank fourth-to-last in the Eastern Conference in overall points. In short, this has been a season that New Jersey fans would like to forget. The Devils have two more home games remaining on their schedule, and the players will be tested to see whether or not they are capable of remaining on the roster in 2015-2016. Tickets for the New Jersey Devils’  final two games at the Prudential Center are going for an average price of $159.16 on the secondary market.

The most expensive game will be against the New York Rangers on April 7th. In what will be the final home game of the season, the Devils will take on one of the Eastern Conference’s best teams at the Prudential Center. Tickets for this matchup are going for an average price of $211.33 on the secondary market according to ScoreBig.com. . However, fans can see this great rivalry for $98.00. The Devils might have thought they had a luxury when Henrik Lundqvist went out with injury, however replacement Cam Talbot has proven otherwise. The young goaltender has played fantastically and has allowed the Rangers to shoot up the Eastern Conference standings. Not only that, the Devils will have to try and slow down Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis, one of the most lethal tandems in the NHL. The Rangers a part of the class of the Eastern Conference, so it will be a good way to measure where the team is at. Goaltender Corey Schneider will have to play solid hockey.

Schneider, who has been very underrated thus far, has saved nearly 93% of the shots that have come his way so far this season. He’s only allowing 2.2 goals per game, and he’s helped the Devils stay out of the bottom of the barrel in the Eastern Conference. He will need to show up in a major way against the Rangers if the Devils are to send their fans home with a final victory.

Devils fans making the trip from New York City to the Prudential Center can easily find NYC parking from around $20 and take a short trip from Penn Station.

The least expensive game will come against the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Montreal Canadiens at the Prudential Center on April 3rd. This matchup should scare the Devils because goals will come at a premium, as they face the NHL’s best goaltender. Carey Price leads the NHL in both goals against average and save percentage. Price is also tied for the league-lead in wins with Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators. Adam Henrique and the offense will have to exploit the Canadiens on the power play. The Devil’s unit has been their one bright spot, as they rank ninth9th in the NHL. Tickets for this matchup are going for an average price of $73.34 on the secondary market. To get into the arena, it will cost as low as $23.00.
