Edmonton vs New Jersey: Oilers and Devils Battle in The Swamp
New Jersey Devils: Running fairly hot in New Year NHL action
Heading into the New Year with a 13-19-7 mark, New Jersey has turned things around considerably as they have posted a 8-4-2 record since the start of January. The Devils hot run has not done them any good though as they were nine points out of the playoffs at the end of December and they are twelve points back today. New Jersey had allowed just one goal in three straight wins before they hit a wall in Montreal and were crushed 6-2 by the Canadiens on the weekend.
Edmonton Oilers: Still in a raging battle with Buffalo for sole possession of the NHL cellar

Though they seem to have pulled the plug long ago, one has to wonder when the Oilers will really start to tank. Being on a six game road trip, that began with a 5-1 blowout loss in Toronto on Saturday, may be a good place to start. There is a "key" contest versus Buffalo included in Edmonton's long current road run.
