The New Jersey Devils are on a two-fold mission on Tuesday night, to ensure they put an end to an ugly three-game losing streak and to pay tribute to a living legend. The Devils are back in action on February 9 when the Edmonton Oilers visit Prudential Center, which gives New Jersey the perfect opportunity to snap their current skid and get their 27th win of the 2015-16 NHL season.
Edmonton enters Tuesday struggling just to keep their head above water, as they currently sit at the bottom of the Pacific Division at 21-28-5 and an NHL-low 47 points. Riding a two-game losing streak of their own, the Oilers will be hungry for a win and would love to spoil Tuesday’s festivities, which will feature the return of the great Martin Brodeur.
Win or lose, Tuesday night is going to be cause for celebration for Devils fans, as legendary goalie Martin Brodeur is finally set to have his jersey retired in front of his former home crowd. The 44-year old Brodeur spent 21 years in the league and spent most of his career with the New Jersey Devils (from 1993-2014) displaying elite goaltending talent en route to helping the Devils claim three Stanley Cup titles.
Devils fans will file into the Prudential Center to watch the Devils take down the Oilers in a rare inter-conference clash, but New Jersey Devils tickets look to carry major value largely due to the retirement of Brodeur’s jersey. Fans get to witness the rare event for just $254.12 on average, while anyone can hit up the cheap seats at the Prudential Center for just $121. Fans are paying up considerably to take it all in (the average Devils game isn’t even $100), but it’s arguably impossible to put a price on Brodeur’s jersey retirement ceremony.
Fans will undoubtedly be looking for all the value they can get with Devils tickets seeing a major spike, while they’ll also want to make sure they have a parking spot in advance. They can take care of both dilemmas at once with Prudential Center parking on ParkWhiz.com starting as low as $7. Should parking near the stadium run out quickly (and with such an event, it might) fans can look for reasonable Newark parking spots, which can be found for as little as $13.15 on ParkWhiz.
Die hard New Jersey fans won’t want to miss out on the experience of a lifetime, as legendary goalie Martin Brodeur will only get his jersey retired this one night. Brodeur will enter Tuesday night already feeling the love from Devils fans, following the reveal of his bronze statue that will sit outside The Rock on Monday night. Tuesday night merely puts the finishing touch on a brilliant career, while allowing fans to partake. In addition, with the Oilers entering the night as one of the league’s worst teams, New Jersey fans will also hopefully be graced with a big win to help the Devils get back on track. The Devils are currently one game back in the Eastern Conference wild card standings, and with a win on Tuesday could get one step closer to taking over the top spot.
