The New Jersey Devils will be looking to avoid four out of their previous five games after falling 2-4 in Toronto Thursday. New Jersey was able to strike first with the eighth of the season from John Moore at 2:59 in the first.
The Maple Leafs were then able to run off three unanswered goals before Moore lit up the lantern at 9:04 in the third period.
The Devils not only failed to tie things up, they gave up another goal with 46 seconds remaining in the game.

4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Carolina -120
With the weakness of New Jersey when it comes to defending the net, I look for the Hurricane to put up at least three or four in this one in route to a third straight win.
